Had a warm welcome with some great advice of where to go eat and visit. Our room was small but... More

Very friendly guesthouse in the perfect location for the Torbay area. Most of the guests that I met during my stay seem to be repeat visitors to the Briars. Malcom and Mandy were great hosts and very provide very helpful information about the local area.

Short midweek stay - clean, comfortable room, very warm welcome on arrival complete with tea, a fabulous location close to the seafront and amenities, and best of all slept like a log - will definitely be returning!

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and would like to thank you for your kind comments. It is also nice to hear that you slept well it probably was the sea air or it possibly could have been our comfortable orthopedic beds! Hopefully we will see you in the future if you travel this way again. More
