We had a wonderful time here. Very clean rooms and well appointed. Fantastic breakfast and we were well looked after. My mother is now disabled and the owners really made us feel at home. Babbacombe is very nice with plenty of places to eat and very welcoming. Not cheap and worth every penny.

Fantastic location and under very friendly management/ ownership. Great value for money which included the 10 out of 10 breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble including the repatriation of my wallet that I left in the bedside cabinet. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay.

Although we were in their smallest room, we found it comfortable and very good value. The breakfast was well prepared and our hosts were helpful in trying to advise us on our SWCP adventure. The location is ideal for the path and close to good places to dine. Nice decor throughout and hosts who understand service. Many thanks..

The best guest house I've ever stayed in! Spotlessly clean rooms with friendly hosts (Tracy and Mark) who can't do enough for you and are very accommodating. The breakfast is superb with local ingredients - the best I've had (especially the sausages!). Stunning views, near to loads of eating places and easy to get on the bus to Torquay (save... More

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.
