Extremely welcoming couple, Mark & Tracey. Fab breakfast. Lovely clean rooms. Just one road back from the sea. A short walk and in front of you the most magnificent views. Both Mark & Tracey gave great advice on where to go and places to eat. Don't miss out on the Cary Arms. We had a great meal. it's high up... More

We had a fab holiday at the Babbacombe palms again. We had a very warm welcome from Tracy, mark and Michael and a cup of tea on arrival which was very much appreciated after a long journey. Our room was ready and immaculately clean with everything we needed. Mark cooked us a delicious breakfast and we were given a choice... More

We arrived to a warm welcome from Tracy and Mark, who were wonderful hosts, and were provided with a map and helpful local attractions guide. The hotel is a two minute stroll from the clifftop railway, where you can go and visit the local seal! The room was well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was good each morning. The room was...

Arrived late due to traffic and having travelled a long distance - weren't made to feel very welcome. The room we were allocated was tiny and didn't look anything like the photos on the website. The bathroom in particular was disappointing and was very small - it's basically a tiny square shower and a toilet in a tiny room. The... More

Great room, very friendly owners, fab breakfast using good ingredients; what more could you ask for? We would have loved to stay longer, and we'll certainly come back. Close to the beach, the cliff railway, some decent pubs, a great little tea room, and an award winning chip shop. Perfect really.

This is our second stay at Babbacombe Palms, and we once again had a lovely, relaxing holiday. Tracy and Mark are the perfect hosts, and they serve the best full English breakfast I’ve had since the last time we stayed there! Everywhere is spotlessly clean and tidy, the rooms are cleaned daily and the tea/coffee/biscuits are replenished too. The location... More

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

My wife and I have just spent a week here and I must say that we had an excellent time. Our room was perfect and Mark & Tracey proved great hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always willing to chat and spend time with you. My wife who had stayed here before had marvelled at the breakfast... More
