Have stayed with Tracey and Mark several times over the past few years. My Father lives in Babbacombe and when there's a family gathering and he doesn't have room for everyone we always give Mark and Tracey a Call. Last weekend was a busy one but the service was as always A1, from the friendly greeting, the room was as... More

We needed somewhere to stay for one night, Babbacombe Palms was just the job. Lovely, clean, comfortable family room for 4, and friendly people. Breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent quality. Would definitely recommend it, especially as it is in such a good location. Hope the painting is going well :-)

Booked on line for one night. Wow what a find! Friendly owners, lovely family bedroom, with all the facilities of an expensive hotel. Breakfast was just fantastic, fresh ingredients and perfectly presented. I could chat about this B&B for a long time! Brilliant place and will definitely book to stay again and again.

This was our third visit in as many years staying at the babbacombe palms. Mark and Tracy are fantastic hosts, friendly and always welcoming, the rooms are always beautifully decorated and colour coordinated. There is a variety for breakfast but would recommend the full English every time. Leave the car, catch the bus or walk to the downs where there... More

The hosts were very welcoming to us and our children despite me covering the bar floor with an exploding can of coke whilst dressed as a pirate. Breakfast was good and the room was perfect. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Having stayed extensively in Devon and Cornwall over the years I've found a keenly priced, we'll run and friendly hotel in possibly the best location in Torbay. Mark & Tracey offer a warm welcome to all and make us feel valued whenever we stay. Room cleanliness, fresh local food and local knowledge are all valuable assets we associate with our... More

After hiking over 530 miles on the SWCF we spent a night at the Babbacombe Palms. The rooms were comfortable, spacious, and clean. The owners were super helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to order. We've stayed at over 40 UK B&B's over the past two months, and the Babbacombe Palms is definitely of the best, especially... More
