We picked this guest house for mostly location reasons. It's a hop, skip and jump away from Babbacom Cliff Railway and Babbacombe Commons, which overlooks Babbacombe Beach. The location is also very close to Hanbury's Fish Shop! Hanbury's is definitely one of the best Fish and Chips shop I've been to! The location is definitely nice and quiet (at least... More

Just returned from a last minute weekend at the Babbacombe Palms Guest House. Although it was low season the guest house was very well presented, clean and welcoming. Very comfortable en suite room and great breakfast served when and how we wanted. Highly recommended.

We have just returned from a four night break over the New Year period. We found this to be an exceptional guest house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We could not fault anything. Our double en-suite room was decorated to a high standard and was spotlessly clean. The proprietors, Mark and Tracy made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed... More
