Stayed for 10 days. We had a very clean and comfortable room with an excellent bed. Felt like home. The hosts were always friendly with extra special touches. Breakfast was always generous with a variety of choices every day. The dinner menu was absolutely gorgeous. Overall it was a wonderful stay. Worth every penny!!!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and appreciating our cleanliness and our pricing, which, to be honest is similar to most small guesthouses in the bay, we just try to offer value for money. Regarding your other points, if short term guests hang up their towels on the rails, we presume they are happy to continue... More

It is situated only 5 minutes from the seafront and 10 minutes from the pub, restaurant and shopping areas. The breakfast each morning was excellent with a good selection... More

I stayed here 2 nights on business. Most of the guests were middle aged couples on holiday. The house is lovely, in a reasonably quiet street quite near the centre of Torquay. I didn't have to use the rear car park for the hotel as there was on street parking both days. The room was a good size and well... More
