We stayed at this B&B whilst visiting Torquay for a family get together and were absolutely delighted that we did. The photos looked really good and although we tried to book a different room (which was unfortunately already booked) we went for the striped room. A little weary that it would be too much... BUT it soooo wasn't! The place... More

This was the best B and B I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many! The attention to detail was second to none. The warm welcome on arrival, the design of the bedroom, the home made cookies, the amazing taps in the bathroom, the breakfast smoothies, the home made yogurt, the goodie bag to take with you,...

We've just come back from a fabulous weekend staying at The 25 Boutique. Julian and Andy were so welcoming and our room was amazing. We stayed in Broadsands and what a stunning room it is.

I have to go to Torquay regularly on business and tried bigger hotels which quite frankly are tired and unwelcoming but by chance camne across 25 Boutique B&B - its lovely and welcoming, clean and quality feel to it.

Dear Paul Thank you very much for your review. We like to think that we're ideal for business travellers as we offer the professionalism and standards of a hotel but in a smaller and more personal setting. Our free carpark, fast Wi-Fi, desks in all rooms, flexible breakfast arrangements and VAT invoices are also a bonus. We often have business... More

This is probably the best B & B I have stayed at. The owners were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the facilities in the area. The room was very clean and comfortable, with top quality fittings, bedding, towels even down to the toilet paper being top class. This is not the cheapest place to stay in Torquay, but it is...

An excellent comfortable B & B in Torquay with superb rooms and every facility you could wish for. We stayed for only one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The establishment is spotlessly clean and most comfortable. An excellent breakfast is served with a good selection of choices. There is plenty of parking and the owners are charming.... More

Hi there We don't often offer single night stays so you must have filled in a gap between bookings. As you've said - one night is never really enough to relax and enjoy all that The 25 and Torquay have to offer. We therefore hope to see you back again soon for a longer break. Best wishes Andy & Julian. More
