Booked through a website having read some reviews and then confirmed by telephoning a week or so before we were due to arrive. It is a nice and clean halfway house between a B&B... More

We were looking for clean, convenient and reasonably priced accommodation in Torquay for a brief visit. Having read other Tripadvisor reviews about Ferndale Lodge, we booked our one night stay. The interior of the Lodge was very clean and tidy, as were the rooms. Ours (Room 7) was adequately sized for our needs, with a large, comfortable bed, a small... More

I was specifically looking for something in this area which is close to friends but booked this directly through their... More

Our room is right on the top third floor facing the car park. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable with beautiful, crisp very white sheets and towels. The room is located quite high and far from the street but the traffic noise is still audible but not pervasive. The hosts, Jon and Julie , their son... More
