Pauline and Tony made me feel very welcome, breakfast was delicious every morning. Nice to have off road parking, close enough to walk to places and bus stop close by when not wanting to walk. I had a lovely time and I will be coming again.

Rooms are very comfortable with en-suite, tea & coffee, big beds. Parking is right outside and off the road. Tesco and Co-op just around the corner. Easy to get to harbour area of Torquay by taxi (8 quid) because taxi shop is just around the corner from hotel. We didn't get breakfast but breakfast area looked nice. TV is tiny... More

As you said, you didn't take breakfast with us since you took advantage of our lower online room-only rates. You will have noticed that information was left in your room to advise that you could purchase breakfast... More

Lovely stay, Pauline and Tony were welcoming and very helpful. We have stayed for couple of nights. We have booked room only but decided to pay extra for breakfast on the second day and it was no bother for them. We had a very nice time and we'll be coming again.

My husband and I stayed at the Babbacombe guest house for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. The owners were very accommodating in every way. The guest house was spotlessly clean. The bedroom was well equipped and the bed was very comfy.The breakfast was superb plenty to eat too.The only minor down side was that the guest house was on... More

For our 50th. wedding anniversary we decided to re-visit Babbacombe, a place which held so many memories of good times since our courting days! There was no question of where we were going to stay, as we had enjoyed the hospitality of Pauline & Tony on two previous occasions. As we were greeted at the door by Tony, I remarked... More

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. When we mentioned that one of us was wheat intolerant ..... Not a problem, we were provided with Celiac diet. No quibble, it was as simple... More

This is the 3rd year we have visited. It's like home from home. A very warm welcome. Breakfast is out of this world. As my 84 year old mother said Pauline isn't just a good cook,she's a bloody good cook. The main road that it is near is so quiet at night,that you would think you were in middle of... More
