I had single occupancy of a large double en suite room which was very clean and well decorated. I only stayed one night. The couple who own it were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. It is close to the railway station and the town centre is about five minutes walk away. I would recommend it to anybody... More

Stayed at guest house for one night with my partner and another couple. Room was very decent and clean. The staff were very friendly and there was also parking facilities at the front of the building which is convenient as most roads near by are pay and display. The breakfast was great in the morning with quick service. Great B&B.

The Torbay Lodge came highly recommended and we were not disappointed, the full English breakfast was excellent. It is situated in a very convenient location for the train station and town centre shops and restaurants.

Stayed here in June for one night.I was on a tour of Scotland with a friend on motorcycles, Sue and her husband are really friendly and go out of the way to make you feel welcome. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms spotless. I will stay here again when we go back to Scotland. Rob from Middlewich

Far better than the last guest house we had been using for years so a right find. Close to town and everything in walking distance. Suzy and Derek fabulous hosts and make you feel like one of...

We stay at the Torbay every summer for a golfing trip, and it's like returning to a family home, as Suzy and Derek are so friendly and welcoming. We gave a twin room and the three-bed attic, and as always the rooms are immaculate, with complimentary drinks tray and bathroom items. We don't tend to spend much time in the... More

From arrival to leaving, our stay though short was great, a lovely welcome, the hosts very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delicious, including the most perfectly cooked egg I've had in a long time! Spotless, comfortable, and we were made to feel at home, no do's and don'ts pasted everywhere. I would highly recommend the guest house to anyone, and... More
