A wonderful welcome, two owners who put their clients' needs beyond their own need for private time, a genuine offer to help and to proffer local knowledge, spotless bedrooms and communal areas and very comfortable beds, followed by a breakfast of home-cooked, local produce made this a stay that can be remembered with gratitude. Thank you.

I choose this B&&B as listed in the South West Coast path guide. Situated about 3 miles out of Torquay - Babbacombe much quieter than Torquay while still on the coast. About 5 mins walk to the sea front. The owners very warm and friendly - and flexible re arrival times. I stayed in a single room en-suite, clean and... More

The Aveland House bed and breakfast was the ideal location for our trip to Torquay this year. Jacqui and David made us feel extremely welcome. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. A hearty breakfast, free wi-fi and private parking… all this situated within walking distance of Babbacombe…. what more could we need ! We... More

Jacqui and David were very friendly hosts and made sure that we had everything for comfort. The house is next to a number of restaurants that were good for dinner. Good breakfast and cozy rooms. Babbacombe was a good decision if you want to relax and take walks down the beautiful coastal path or relax on the beach.

Clean, comfortable single room in a traditional, welcoming b&b. Free wifi was useful as there was no TV in the room which surprised me. I asked for fresh milk as there were only 2 milk cartons provided. Breakfast was tasty. Parking space available. Bus stops a few minutes walk away or about a 30 minute walk to the harbour. Some...

The Aveland Hotel is a lovely place to stay. Jacqui and David are very welcoming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Their breakfast sets you up for the day. Off road parking a bonus. All the lads said that they would be more than happy to come back again next year. Regards... More

To be fair I am not the usual visitor as I am a professional working in the area every 3 or so months and I was originally recommended by professionals in the area. Since then for the past 10 Years I have continued coming to Aveland House. If I was not happy with anything I could stay elsewhere and claim... More

I recently stayed again at Aveland House in Babbacombe. Still just as good, free WiFi, spotlessly clean, great breakfast, and run by a very caring couple. A good address to know if staying near Torquay.

I only stayed here for one night but wish it had been longer. I chose this place as it was walking distance to my parents home. The hosts were so friendly and made me feel at home straight away, and as I was travelling on my own, it certainly made me feel good. The place is cleaner than clean, and... More
