Found a lovely little B&B in Babbacombe. Tracy and Mark were really friendly and welcoming. They advised on where to eat and drink, and things to see and do. Room was perfect. Stayed two nights, and breakfast each morning was great. Very reasonable rates for the experience. Will definately be booking there again when going down to the area. Thanks... More

Visiting from Canada and down in the Torquay area to visit relatives. Beautiful room! The 3 of us were very comfortable and very clean! Mark and Tracey were so welcoming and accommodated my dietary needs in the exceptional breakfast. We appreciated the tea in the room. Good size room, plenty of air and (I'll say it again)very clean. Great location.... More

We visited the Babbacombe Palms as a family of 3; with our 12 year old son. We would definitely agree with all comments regarding Mark and Tracey's fantastic hospitality. Usually we stay in hotels but chose this accommodation last minute as all hotels were full. Mark and Tracey had actually put us in a larger family room than we had... More

From the minute we arrived, Tracey and Mark could not do more to make us welcome..... Not like the rude man down the road whose hotel we accidentally arrived at first!! :p Rooms were very comfy and spotlessly clean, beds were comfy and breakfast great too. Great value for money, couldn't have asked for more.
