We stayed here for two nights over a weekend for a getaway. Could not be happier with the stay. The owner and staff were very nice, extremely helpful and super friendly. Full of information, tips, advice. The owner could not do enough for us. Great location, less than 5mins walk from the seafront. The room was a little small, but... More

Quite simply superb Garry and the team could not do any more to make you welcome, a proper English establishment with a breakfast to match. Gary is a whirlwind and an expert travel guide. Those of us that have stopped will understand " the St Clements was my favourite

There was a mini fridge on the landing filled with small jugs of fresh milk, which was a nice touch. The breakfasts were gorgeous, fresh, very... More

We went away for my wife birthday to a very welcoming friendly hotel. The greeting we had from Debbie and Gary was very warm and we were made to feel welcome straight away. The room was excellent and the breakfast was just great with a good choice. Would highly recommend to any one Thank you

My partner and I recently stayed here for 1 night - we were visiting family in Torquay on the way down to North Cornwall - and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A brilliant welcome from Gary and Debbie and a lovely room - great attention to detail. The breakfast the following morning was top notch. Thank you
