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

Mark and Tracy manage and own a little gem in beautiful Babbacombe. Conveniently situated in The English Riviera, 100 metres to the downs and beaches of Babbacombe. Many restaurants/pubs also within 100 metres. The cleanliness and comfort on offer at babbacombe palms is second to none. My Wife and I have frequented this Guest House on many occasions and it...

Our short stay at Babbacombe Palms was perfect. The hosts, Mark and Tracy, were very welcoming. Our room was nicely decorated. It was very, very clean and it had everything we needed. The breakfast was lovely - there was a good selection of cereals followed by an appetizing, freshly cooked fry up and toast. I would definitely stay here again... More

Enjoyed an excellent overnight stay at The Babbacombe Palms. The room was furnished to a high standard and impeccably clean. Breakfast was piping hot and replenishments of tea, coffee, toast etc., were endless. Hosts Mark and Tracy endeavoured to cater for all guests and ensured our stay was perfect. We look forward to repeating this experience again soon, and highly... More
