We have just returned home from Pauline and Tony's lovely Guest House and we are already looking forward to returning next year. We are so comfortable staying there that we go down to the dining room for breakfast in our slippers. Lovely couple, wonderful food, spotless rooms, fluffy towels, the list is endless. We can't ever imagine staying anywhere else... More

My recent stay was only for one night but I can say it was just lovely From the time I arrived until the time I departed I was treated very well and made to feel right at home. When you book reservations you never quite know what to expect, but this time I was very pleased with all aspects. Outstanding... More

Stayed two nights in a family room. The B&B was great. The hosts were very welcoming. Breakfast was lovely and the kids got exactly what they wanted. The situation was perfect for us - next door to a Tesco Express for daily supplies and a evening bottle of wine; minutes away from the beautiful cliff top views, cliff railway, model... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with our grown up daughter. We had the double & single room on the top floor which suited us perfectly. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast delicious. A very short walk to Babbacombe Downs with beautiful views across the bay. Pauline & Tony were excellent hosts throughout our stay.

Spotlessly clean, freshly decorated, very well situated (2 mins walk from seafront and 2 beaches). Lovely bedroom, very comfortable bed, helpful and friendly hosts. No hesitation in recommending for a stay in Babbacombe. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you for a lovely stay at your guest house. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The house is so comfortable and spotlessly clean. Pauline went out of her way to be helpful at all times and we really did appreciate it. It was so convenient for a walk along the downs and a trip or two to... More
