We've just returned from an enjoyable break in Torquay staying at the wonderful "25" run by Andy and Julian who are superb hosts .Extra touches like the Elemis Toiletries, Andy's homemade cakes and biscuits, the little bottles of fresh milk in the room fridge for our drinks and best of all, being welcomed with a pot of tea and homemade...

We had an amazing stay with Andy and Julian this past weekend. From the moment we walked in the door they were the perfect hosts making sure we had everything we needed and making us feel comfortable and at home in their beautiful B&B.

This place is unbelievable. Andy & Julian have made EVERYTHING perfect here. Cannot fault anything at all. These boys have really gone the extra ten miles to make this place a Paradise. The Breakfast is just beyond belief - I have never had so much choice and quality in the food we were given. It is as if every little... More

Dear "Elizabeth" Julian and I were so pleased to hear that you found The 25 to be "unbelievable" and that everything was perfect for you. You are right - we have certainly done our research over the years and had the opportunity to stay at lots of other 5 star properties across the country, checking out what other people do.... More

What more can anyone say about this place? It was simply outstanding! It is more like a Boutique Hotel than your average B&B. Little things like Andy's home made biscuits and little jar of sweets in our room made us feel 'at home', special, and 'cared for'..This, along with a perfectly clean and stylish (as well as spacious) room (ours...

Hi Thanks very much for the review. The room with the giant orange gerbera is the Oddicombe room. We're pleased to hear you found it clean, stylish & spacious. As you mentioned, we catered for HRH Duke of Cambridge on more than one occasion at our last place. We like to think we treat everyone like Royalty! Thanks again. Andy. More

We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Torquay. We stayed at The 25 Boutique B&B. It must be the best B&B in Torquay. Andy & Julian were really hospitable & made sure that we had the best experience. We were very impressed with Andy's homemade cakes/biscuits & Julian's locally sourced breakfast. The rooms were immaculate & the hosts... More

What a difference a winter makes, wonderful transformation, the room was totally different than last year. Andy and Julian are well down the road to creating their dreams in this (now) modern guest house, this is what they all should be like. The completely new lounge gives you an idea of the place, and what to expect, when they welcome... More

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at home at Andy & Julian's perfect bed and breakfast in Torquay. The room was stunning with every minor detail possible that you may have forgotten, to hand! Luxurious toiletries, homemade goodies, slippers and towelling robes were all there to use.
