Only stayed a night whilst visiting a poorly friend, but wished it had been for longer. Speckless, beautiful presentation, and friendly, helpful family hosts. Very highly recommended for a comfortable nights' sleep, followed by a wonderful breakfast served by friendly hosts. What more could you ask?.

Only stayed one night whilst visiting family. Room exactly like the picture, spotlessly clean. Food was top class as was the hospitality shown . Will definitely be booking again on our next visit. 5 star service.

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

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
