Stayed here for three nights 10/11/12.08.14 & wish it could have been longer. Nothing but praise for this guest house. Angela and Dave were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them and Dave is a mine of local information. The room was spacious and very clean with little added touches you don't find in other guest houses. The... More

Rant over now on to the pro's the room was spotlessly clean... More

We had a great welcome and lots of helpful advice from our hosts. Excellent breakfast - as big or small as you like! The hotel is a short walk from both the front and town centre in an area full of hotels and guest houses. Very quiet at night. My daughter and I had the small double which was clean... More

Thank you for a lovely stay, we ask for the small double. It was on the cramped side only because we carry so much luggage from Australia. My sister had a larger room and it was ample. Very clean. Great breakfasts and help planning days out in the car and making sure we had a parking spot on our return.

Rooms clean but hallways dated and doesn't smell nice, not really made to feel welcome and strict rules about eating in the rooms which baffled us! Breakfast was nice but felt really awkward, will not be returning.

We're responding to this review and the 2nd review dated 1/06/14 which was a joint booking. Firstly we make no apology for the guest house 'smelling' of cooked English breakfast in the mornings, what better way to start the day with a full English breakfast. Secondly we don't allow takaways in the rooms as in the past we've had spoilt... More

Stayed here with husband for weekend in torquay. Rooms clean but dated corridors smelt strongly of fried food which is understandable as they serve breakfast this lingered all day more effort could have been made to remove this smell. Brought back a pasty for our tea before heading out and were told we were not allowed to eat in the... More

Me and my other half stayed here for our 5 year anniversary and was very pleased with everything. The people who run it should e proud and are very polite. Within walking distance from the beach and lots of places to eat. The breakfast provided was lovely and the portions were very satisfying. Would definitely recommend this guest house to... More

What a great bed and breakfast. A very warm welcome, room was warm and spotless bed very comfortable and all linen pure white. The breakfast was excellent a good choice, well presented and poached eggs were done to perfection. A very pleasant and helpful couple. Debbie and Gary.
