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.

Checked in for.one night to allow.me to visit the hospital. A real gwm The owners could.not.do enough for.you. The single room clean and comfortable, the wc and shower were not ensuite but just outside the room. Plenty of hot.water. great breakfast. One of the best guest houses I have used. Thank you

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

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

I booked this hotel for the ice hockey playoffs at the nearby ice rink and only chose this hotel because it was the cheapest that was available at the time, but don't let the cheap prices fool you as this is one of the best values for money that you can get. Although a little tricky to locate due to... More
