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

Just returning home from a week away in Babbacombe, made extra nice with our stay at the 'Babbacombe Palms'. What a gem! Great location, great service, and a lovely breakfast awaits you. Rooms very clean, nicely furnished with all you need to be comfortable. Quality appliances and fixtures. I would highly recommend a stay here. Parking is very easy, not... 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

We had a fab holiday at the Babbacombe palms again. We had a very warm welcome from Tracy, mark and Michael and a cup of tea on arrival which was very much appreciated after a long journey. Our room was ready and immaculately clean with everything we needed. Mark cooked us a delicious breakfast and we were given a choice... More

We arrived to a warm welcome from Tracy and Mark, who were wonderful hosts, and were provided with a map and helpful local attractions guide. The hotel is a two minute stroll from the clifftop railway, where you can go and visit the local seal! The room was well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was good each morning. The room was...

Arrived late due to traffic and having travelled a long distance - weren't made to feel very welcome. The room we were allocated was tiny and didn't look anything like the photos on the website. The bathroom in particular was disappointing and was very small - it's basically a tiny square shower and a toilet in a tiny room. The... More

Great room, very friendly owners, fab breakfast using good ingredients; what more could you ask for? We would have loved to stay longer, and we'll certainly come back. Close to the beach, the cliff railway, some decent pubs, a great little tea room, and an award winning chip shop. Perfect really.
