Brilliant hosts, fab food for breakfast, all we need in the clean and tidy room, more than some expensive hotels / guest houses we have stayed in. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

We had a lovely stay at the Babbacombe Guest House. Room was adequate, with a wardrobe, small bedside cabinet on one side and dresser on the other side. Had a nice size mirror over the dresser and a full size mirror, which is really great. Hair dryer was great. Tea, coffee and milk etc available and kettle was cleaned regularly... More

My partner and I spent a few days there and it was great. Tony and Pauline are great hosts, the breakfast was great and they were very attentive and friendly - they seem to like what they're doing. If I ever went back I would definitely consider staying at their lovely, clean, warm B&B again.

We enjoyed staying at this friendly and clean guesthouse. Pauline and Tony were great hosts and breakfast set us up for the day. A superb location meaning you don't need a car to visit the numerous attractions on the doorstep. We will return!

We were highly fortunate to select Babbacombe Guest House for a delightful five night stay. Food, cleanliness and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. Top marks for a top team who were most courteous and very helpful during our vacation.
