In this day and age customer service is,unfortunately,not always what you would like,or indeed expect.This cannot be said of the Garway. Julia was welcoming,polite and extremely helpful with seemingly nothing too much trouble - she even gave my wife some coffee to take away and sample. The Garway is within comfortable walking distance to all the town's amenities and we... More

Julia is trying very hard to provide a homely B&B ambience and is clearly the driving force behind the enterprise. For one night in Torquay, it's fit for purpose. Our room was very clean, with a comfortable bed but didn't need the 2 large chairs which meant you couldn't open the wardrobe or close the curtains! It's probably a good... More

Thank you for leaving us a review on Trip Advisor. We do try to make the feel of home from home here, so we are very pleased you were able to pick up on this, Paul and I work together as a team very well. It does sound as if you booked room 5, which is our small double room... More

Thank you for leaving us a lovely review, it is always a pleasure reading these. It helps to know what is working within the guest house.

Paul and Julia, from the outset, were amazing - as a newby to Torquay I had no inkling on how to find the Garway Lodge. Julia had phoned me up on the morning of the trip and offered to pick me up from the bus station. I was overwhelmed by this generosity of spirit and they were patiently awaiting me... More

My partner and I decided to stay at Garway Lodge while visiting family nearby. We know Torquay well and have stayed in various places before. On arrival we were greeted by the owner who made us feel very welcome. Our room was lovely, very clean and comfortable, the owners had thought of everything, we had lots of hot drinks to... More

Thank you for leaving us a lovely review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We are in a quiet area away from the harbour, which I found most of our guests prefer. It can be very noisy and busy at night at the harbour, especially with the Stags and Hens. Ocean Drive is a lovely restaurant... More

We stayed for two nights on a weekend in August. The welcome from Julia was very friendly and a hot drink with cake and biscuits was supplied while we booked in. We stayed in the only downstairs room which was very clean and comfortable. It was set up as a double but could be used as a twin. The room... More

Thank you for leaving a lovely review, and you would be very welcome if you visit Torquay again. We have two rooms that can be set up as twin beds, the super-kingsize bed is a Zip and Link, which means we can separate them, We move one bed against the wall, and the bedside cabinet between the beds.

We stayed at Garway Lodge for one night in July 2014 in the Chocolate Room. Julia and Paul were very friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside. We were treated to tea and cakes when we arrived, as well as helpful tourist information including maps and taxi numbers. The room was lovely and... More

We spent 1 night at the Garway hotel last weekend July 26th 2014. We were greeted by Julia and offered tea, cakes and biscuits but she checked to make sure it was OK to bring them out as I am diabetic, which was very kind.
