Stayed here for the second time and received the same quality service as before. Great hosts, fantastic breakfasts. Room and all areas absolutely spotless. Would recommend to anyone. Great base for travelling devon or Cornwall as we did.

4 star guest house with 5 star service and accommodation, Tony and Pauline are the perfect hosts and every visit brings new surprises. Breakfast is a gourmet experience not to be missed. We will be back in a short while and hope many others have as good experience as we always have.

Pauline made us welcome from the minute we arrived. Everything is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. And the breakfast was fantastic. In line with other reviewers I cannot recommend the Babbacombe Guest House highly enough.

A superb two night stay. Great hosts, tasty breakfast and a very comfortable room. I shall be staying here again in the near future. Only a short walk to the "Downs" area of Babbacombe where you can find some excellent eateries and watering holes.

This is our second stay here. It was very last minute too as I rang in the morning when I needed a room the same night. Pauline was extremely welcoming. She was on her own so we were very grateful she was as welcoming as she was. We had a different bedroom this stay and the standard was as perfect... More

I stayed here for the weekend with my better half in February after being caught by the weather having made changes to my travel plans. I chose the Guest House as I was driving down the main road in Babbacombe and pulled into their car park and was met by Pauline and Tony who were so friendly and welcoming. We... More

The outside is a little off-putting, but onceinside this guest house is really excellent. The rooms are clean, and well furnished with a lot of thoughtful touches. There is a great breakfast to start the day, and Tony and Pauline are one of the most delightful and helpful couples I have ever met. Nothing was too much trouble for them,... More

We have travelled extensively over the years & it's the best guest house we have ever stayed in. Pauline & Tony are the perfect hosts, attentive to every detail, spotless rooms with quality toiletries, including dressing gowns & slippers, tea/coffee making facilities. The best selection of breakfasts we've ever been offered in a guest house all freshly cooked to order.... More
