Thank you for a lovely stay at your guest house. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The house is so comfortable and spotlessly clean. Pauline went out of her way to be helpful at all times and we really did appreciate it. It was so convenient for a walk along the downs and a trip or two to... More

I decided to stay at Babbacombe guest house after reading so many wonderful reviews and I can only add to those. Stayed for a week whilst visiting family. Loved the comfort of the guest house and the friendly helpful service from Tony and Pauline. Extremely clean... I'm sure cleaner than most people's own homes! Breakfast is definitely worth getting up... More

We arrived on their small free car park. Both hosts Tony and Pauline greeted us by offering tea, so after viewing the first floor room we went down to their garden. The room looks redecorated and was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and at night the traffic which appears heavy around tea time appears to clear and is... More

Fantastic place to stay. Ideal location. Owners very nice. The room was immaculately cleaned. Had everything we needed. Brilliant breakfast with lots of choice. Free parking. Bus stop right outside. Situated just up from the beautiful beaches. Would stay again.

Dear Tony & Pauline We had a lovely time at your B&B. We are so sorry we arrived so late on Friday evening and for causing the fire alarm to go off. I miss Pauline's breakfast. Great quiet location, less than five minutes away from the Downs, Babbacombe and Oddiecombe beaches. Preety

Pauline and Tony made me feel very welcome, breakfast was delicious every morning. Nice to have off road parking, close enough to walk to places and bus stop close by when not wanting to walk. I had a lovely time and I will be coming again.
