My family really enjoyed our stay here. Mark and Tracy are wonderful hosts, very friendly and accommodating. Our room was comfortable and homely; and nice and warm on a chilly February day. The cooked breakfast was absolutely wonderful. We would not hesitate in recommending this guest house. It is conveniently situated with many attractions close by.

They recommended places for us to eat the evening we arrived within easy walking distance. Our room was beautifully furnished and absolutely spotless. The cooked breakfast was excellent - good quality sausage and bacon and all cooked to... More

We stayed in this guest house this week as we were attending a family funeral. We received a very friendly welcome which was much appreciated. All areas are tastefully decorated and Mark and Tracy certainly take pride and work hard to produce the excellent service that they provide. We shared a family room which was spotlessly clean comfortable and little... More

Have just spent 8 days at the Babbacombe Palms and it was absolutely fabulous, Mark and Tracy made us feel very welcome and as soon as we arrived a lovely cup of tea came straight out. The room was wonderful, with a nice big television and everyday tea, coffee, chocolate drinks and biscuits were waiting for us on our return... More

Just arrived home from a fabulous stay in Babbacombe, and had to hop on TripAdvisor to praise Mark & Tracy at the Babbacombe Palms. From the minute we arrived they made us feel very welcome and sat us down on their sofa and made us a lovely pot of tea - just what I needed after a 3 hour drive.... More

Stayed for one night whilst working in the area. Good levels of customer service, I received a call during the day to confirm my arrival time. On arrival I was greeted by the owners, lovely couple, friendly and helpful in suggesting where to go for some food. The room was basic but had everything I needed. Wasn't keen on the... More

This guest-house is run by a friendly couple who make you feel at home. The breakfast was rich and tasty. Our room was probably the smallest in the guest-house and had two single beds end to end rather than a double bed. If we have a chance to come again, I would ask for a different room. There are many... More

We stayed at the Babbacombe Palms two weeks ago and found it comfortable and clean and found the hosts very welcoming. A great cooked breakfast and nicely decorated and equipped room. Good location with street parking close to the property. Reasonably priced as well.

Extremely welcoming couple, Mark & Tracey. Fab breakfast. Lovely clean rooms. Just one road back from the sea. A short walk and in front of you the most magnificent views. Both Mark & Tracey gave great advice on where to go and places to eat. Don't miss out on the Cary Arms. We had a great meal. it's high up... More
