Had wonderful break at the Ratcliffe Guest House with our Grandson, who likes it just as much as we do. Kevin and Anna are wonderful hosts, and the breakfasts are great. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Once again Anna & Kevin don't left you down on accommodation, welcome and the breakfasts. It is always a pleasure to stay here, and they are the most lovely people and nothing is ever to much trouble from them. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Torbay.

Just returned home after a three night stay at the Ratcliffe, nothing was to much trouble, great breakfasts, really clean rooms, toddler friendly , a lot quieter at night than other areas near the seafront, very accommodating couple, we will be booking up for next year, would highly recommend.

Centrally located, near the train and bus stations this was a very friendly b&b. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were great. Nothing was too much trouble and there was a relaxed feel to the place making am enjoyable break.
