The Babbacombe Palms was a wonderful surprise. My wife and I were travelling around the UK with our two children, aged sixteen and thirteen and stayed over night at this charming B&B. The fastidious attention to detail was evident, rooms were comfortable and warm. Decor in the rooms is contemporary and extremely well-maintained. The hosts, Mark and Tracey were extremely... More

Just had a 3 night stay in the family room - there was plenty of space and the kids loved the bunk beds. Mark and Tracey had provided everything we could possibly need. They were so friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were amazing! The location was fantastic for us to visit friends but also there was plenty to do... More

This is a nice friendly hotel, which very close to the beach and the Cliff railway. Breakfast is made to order and the beds are comfortable. The shower cubicle is a bit small but suffices. Breakfast is served between 8.30 to 9am, so if you like a lie in then you will be disappointed as most hotels in Torquay have... More

Just come back from a 4 night stay , Mark and Tracey were so friendly and welcoming. The place is spotless and the breakfast was extremely good. Lots to do in the surrounding area making the location ideal and you don't need a car. Would definitely recommend.

Mark and Tracey were so friendly- they clearly delight in welcoming people to their hotel. The room was small but well organised, clean, airy and comfortable. The shower/toilet again was small but good pressure in the shower and spotlessly clean. The decor was tasteful and bed comfortable. The fast broadband wfi was also great as were the hairdryer, tea and... More

We stayed for two nights and couldn't have asked for a more welcoming guest house. The owners, Mark & Tracy, are wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was delightful and the breakfast was cooked to perfection. Our room was on the second floor, hence a few flights of stairs, but Mark insisted on carrying up both... More

Just returned from a excellent stay at the Babbacombe Palms guest house. Me and my partner attended a wedding nearby and booked this guest house after reading all the positive reviews on trip adviser. The guest house is in a perfect position to Babbacombe downs which is a short 2 min walk away and close to a small town centre,... More

Excellent B&B, extremely welcoming and accommodating owners, Mark & Tracy. Our room on the ground floor was spacious, with a real comfy bed. The full english is outstanding with local produce to boot. Nothing was too much, all you have to do is ask, we travelled by train so relied on local services to get around which where frequent and... More
