Chatty host, but with subtle put-downs. "Oh well, I'm glad you didn't get the place you wanted". (We were in the area to look at a property). Breakfast portions small. If people asked for extra coffee/toast this was frowned upon. An "atmosphere" in dining area. Prices good. 2010.

Dear GayGaia. Thank you for your strange review. As we keep records of all guests and we were closed for refurbishment in January 2015 we have no record of you staying with us when you say you did. It seems additionally strange for a review of this nature to be posted 11 months later. Babbacombe Guest House has held a... More

This friendly guest house was a home from home. Very clean and the hosts were very helpful and friendly. The choice of breakfast was first class, and nothing was too much trouble. We will definately return.

Had a fantastic short break in this very clean, comfy and friendly guest house. Will definitely be back in 2016. The breakfast menu was more than able to please all tastes including ground or instant coffee instead of tea.

This is our fifth stay here, always a pleasure to return as you know you are always going to get a warm welcome, immaculately clean rooms and a fabulous breakfast in the morning! 😃 We always look forward to coming back whenever we are in Torquay. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

Spotlessly clean accommodation, very comfortable. Excellent choice for breakfast and in-room teas and coffee. Very close to the sea front, just a short walk. Babbacombe has lots of attractions without being brash. Good sandy beaches and children love the cliff railway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 'minimoon' stay at Babbacombe Guest House, Tony & Pauline made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived when They greeted us & helped to take our bags up to the room & went beyond the call of duty to help us while we were there. Great facilities, immaculately clean everywhere. The breakfasts were delicious,... More

Arrived unannounced looking for a room close to all amenities in Babbacombe, & this was just right! Beautifully clean & comfortable: close to shops, on bus route, walking distance to gym, hairdressers, seafront, restaurants. Pauline & Tony extremely hospitable & welcoming.

We had a last minute requirement for a room and found this guest house. We like staying on the top floor at most places and this was no trouble at all to accommodate from the owners. Our loft conversion room was quaint with beams and eclectic angles everywhere, but we loved the character. I'm six foot tall and did have... More
