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.

We had a truly welcoming stay for our second visit - and it is fair to say that Pauline's breakfast is no fluke - it was amazing again, we didn't need lunch! We took the double room on the top floor which is wonderfully decorated and the restricted height was no issue for us. It's a perfect cosy little room.... More

Had a lovely weeks stay at the Babbacombe Guest House, our third visit. We wouldn't go anywhere else because we know the quality of the breakfast and the excellent standard of the rooms is second to none. We have also enjoyed the hospitality of Pauline and Tony. Home from home! We will definitely be back next year or maybe sooner!

We had a great stay with Tony and Pauline. The rooms were clean and tidy and the choice of breakfasts was amazing. The food was cooked beautifully and the tea just how I like it. They were very helpful regarding directions and places to visit. We would definity stay with them again. Thank you both.

Dear everest53 - Thank you for your detailed review! As you mention it is nice to be away from the Town Centre, and we are less than a 5 minute walk across the road from the beautiful views at Babbacombe Downs. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More
