Individually furnished en suite rooms, very warm welcome from owner. Fantastic breakfast. Hi speed broadband wifi. What's not to like...? Oh.. Good location also, less than 10 mins walk into the town. Bear in mind the return journey will be uphill...! No 7 restaurant recommended if you like seafood. Will return to both if in the area again.

The room was immaculate and very comfortable. Wendy Le Mesurier, the owner was attentive, helpful and happy to put herself out to reserve restaurants and recommend places of interest - particularly recommending first class restaurants. The breakfast was wholesome and made to order. Our five day stay there was first class.

Stayed for 2 nights on a short break to Torquay. The house is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. Location is brilliant, just a short walk down to the Marina with lots of restaurants close by. As others have mentioned on a slight incline but manageable. The bed was very comfortable, better than my bed at home. Breakfast was excellent. Nothing... More

I cannot speak too highly of Merlewood House and Wendy the owner. A gorgeous house and equally lovely room (Green Room was great). Bed super comfortable, great large shower and plenty of room. All facilities you would expect, but then the additional touches like fresh milk for making tea and coffee that make somewhere really stand out. Breakfast was top... More

We enjoyed our stay at Merlewood House in Torquay. Wendy is a fabulous host and cooked us a really nice breaktfast. The room was very well appointed and clean, the bed comfortable. The house is situated a little up the hill which didn't matter to us at all since we were able to work off some calories after dinner.

If you are looking for a b&b in lovely Torquay you will not go wrong here. Very friendly welcome from a lovely hostess who gives great advice on what to do. Clean and comfortable room in a very nice building. Bit of an uphill walk, about 400m, but good for working off a few calories after your meal!

Just returned from a three day stay at this most comfortable, elegant B&B. The rooms are tastefully decorated to a high standard and have everything you could need. The beds are very comfortable and the owner, Wendy, makes you so welcome. The breakfasts are to a very high standard and nothing is too much trouble for Wendy. It is just... More

Our visit to Merlewood House was over three nights in May. The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. The rooms were decorated in a boutique style and very tasteful yet bright. The bed in our room was very comfortable and gave me the best nights sleep I'd had for a long time. Our host Wendy was a charming and... More
