We spent two nights at this friendly, comfortable, small hotel. Excellent room with everything you could need. Also freshly cooked breakfast with award winning sausages. We highly recommend. Local buses take you to places of interest so no need to use a car.

Came to Torquay as a last minute decision and managed to book a room for 1 nights stay. Very helpful and welcoming owner that helped with car parking upon arrival. Lovely double room, clean bathroom with enough towels for 2. Loved the soap and shower gel! LCD tv with free view and fridge in the room if we needed it.... More

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!!!

thesouthview, Owner at South View Hotel, responded to this review

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

My wife and I stayed at the South View Guest House for 3 nights over the Bank Holiday weekend. The property was clean and tidy and in a fairly quiet street. 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
