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!

The owners, Tony and Pauline were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Lovely refurbished clean room with excellent en-suite. Little extras such as luxury toiletries and slippers and gowns. Great breakfast choice as well as full English. Will definitely stay here when we next visit the area. Already recommended it to friends... More

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.

This was my first visit to Tony & Pauline's guest house and I will be more than pleased to stay with them on my next visit. There was a warm welcome and my single bedroom was very comfortable with all that I would need for a two night stay. My bathroom was across the corridor and this was fine with... More

We stayed at the Babbacombe Guest House on the final leg of our SW tour and loved it. Our double room was light and airy, the bed was the super comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. A real testament to Tony and Pauline's hard work. I'm sure we will be staying with them again in the future.

I stayed at Babbacombe Guest House over the Easter weekend whilst visiting my mother who lives just around the corner. Tony and Pauline really are lovely and make you feel so welcome. I stayed in the ground floor room which was very well appointed and comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean and had everything in it to make your stay... More
