We stayed at The 25 for five nights recently, and really enjoyed every aspect of our visit. Andy and Julian are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the surrounding area, so you really feel at home. Our room ('Broadsands', at the front of the B&B) was large,comfortable and stylish and we slept very well. There are lots of nice touches such... More

Hi Thanks for your great review. Our luxury rooms (Broadsands & Torre) are our most expensive but we hope the extras and the level of detail and luxury in the rooms make them great value for money. We're therefore glad you appreciated the room and that the extras enhanced your stay. You've made me feel hungry with your description of... More

We stopped at The 25 last year when it was the Glenross, two months after Andy & Julian our friendly hosts had taken over ownership of the B&B. They told us about the refurbishment they planned to do during the winter months and re-name it THE 25. So we had to come back again to see what they had done... More

Dear Phil & Alison Thank you for taking the time to write another review for us. It was great to see you again. It's always a good sign when a guest asks to extend their stay longer than planned. We're so glad you liked everything we'd done during our refurb since your last visit - and even more pleased that... More

This is a really lovely and comfortable place to stay. The hosts, Andy and Julian, have an amazing attention to detail – tea and homemade biscuits on arrival, use of lounge and honesty bar, very luxurious feeling bedrooms with all mod cons including – spotless on-suite bathroom with power shower and Elemis toiletries, TV with free access to Netflix, silent...

From the moment we stepped into The 25 we knew we were welcome. Andy and Julian both greeted us with broad smiles and that attitude extended throughout our stay. The suite we had (Elberry) was very well proportioned, with a king bed comfortably located in the rear room together with all the usual storage required. The other room was overlooking... More

We've started stopping at Torquay, to break up our Journey to Shropshire from Cornwall. We had stopped here last August, and knew that planned changes to the B & B meant it was worth a visit.

Thanks Jason for your review. Glad you enjoyed our little goodies like the homemade biscuits. The best price is usually available via our own website not the one you used. We did have the Duke of Cambridge at our last B&B several times which must demonstrate the quality we offer. Thanks for mentioning it. Although we were sorry to hear... More
