Excellent accommodation with great hosts (Helen and Craig) and stunning views. Very tasteful, modern and breakfast was lovely. We'll definitely be returning in the near future and would recommend it to anybody visiting the area.

While visiting family in Torquay in June, my husband and I stayed at Headland View for 6 days. Excellent experience and breakfast menu was varied and delicious. Craig and Helen were very gracious hosts. Highly recommend. Susan B. USA

Our room was on the top floor with an amazing view of the sea with a balcony that we sat out on every night. Everywhere is... More

My new husband and I made a last minute booking here for a mini break straight after our wedding, and I'm so glad we did! We were made very welcome from the second we walked through the doors and had a beautiful room with a stunning view over Babbacombe downs. I've always wanted to stay in one of the hotels... More

This is our second visit to Headland View, our stay was just as amazing as the first time. Craig and Helen are just the most perfect hosts that you could wish to meet.

We had the most amazing stay with Helen and Craig. Everything was perfect - from the beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean room to the perfectly presented breakfasts every morning. The choice and quality of the food was superb and our hosts looked after us so well, giving advice on places to visit and restaurants to eat in the evening. Thank... More
