My partner and I spent the weekend at Linden House for a quick break. What can I say? From the moment we arrived, greeted by bubbly, welcoming, Sue, until the moment we left, it was delightful. We stayed in bedroom 3 - super king-size bed - and it was beautiful. Gorgeous furnishings, very comfy bed, spotlessly clean - everywhere! Excellent in-room facilities, lovely, really lovely. We looked over the lovely gardens and although there is a passing road, after 7pm all was quiet.
Following good advice from Sue we went out for a wonderful romantic Italian dinner and enjoyed possible the best fish and chips ever! We were so spoilt with Larry's breakfasts, delicious to the very last mouthful, we could not resist the full english - both days!
We left feeling really spolit and indulged. Such a beautiful house, cared for by two very special people :)
We shall be going back!

Room Tip: Room 3 - beautiful spacious room. Seperate bathroom and toilet. Very big bed!

The whole stay at Linden House was amazing.
The hosts, Sue and Larry, were fantastic - it felt like a visit at aunt and uncle.
The room was totally clean with lovely interior. Besides that, we had also some tea and tasty chocolates in our room.
At Linden House we had the best breakfast during our trip through England. The cooked breakfast was fantastic, and in addition they offered a wide range of freshly prepared smoothies, joghurt and porridge.
Of course, we would recommend this guest house.

Sue and Larry, thank you for this lovely stay!

Best regards from Germany
Daniel & Mareike

Having stayed in many hotels, this one did not dissapoint., Sue and her husband are more than welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, the hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
My husband and I stayed in the Garden room which was lovely, however if you struggle with steps it would not be suitable for you as you go down the steps to get to your room. The breakfast was everything you would expect from full english to porridge, and is presented very well. The garden room is like a seperate annex - The bed firm but comfy - loads of storage space - shower lovely and powerful - tea & coffee facility - large TV and a fridge.

Thanks Sue and Larry you are doing a sterling job. And thank you for a lovely two night stay, we will definately be back.

Room Tip: Garden room not really ideal for people with mobility problems.

This is a great little b&b hotel and beautifully appointed, Easy 20 minute stroll through a park and along the prom into the centre of Torquay. The owners Sue and Larry make you feel very welcome and the breakfast is superb. Just a bit of traffic noise through the day and into the evening, but all goes quiet at bed time so no problems.

Room Tip: they are all fabulous

Sue and Larry were most welcoming throughout our stay and as it was our first time to Torquay, they were most helpful in making recommendations for places for us to visit. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The hotel is impeccably spotless and the rooms are beautifully decorated throughout. The rooms are well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, the box of complimentary chocolates very much appreciated. Breakfast was to die for with lots of options to choose from. Larrys home made yougurt and honey is a must!! The only issue was that our stay was not long enough. We were made most welcome by Sue and Larry and would recommend this Linden House to everyone. Keep up the good work both, and thanks so much for looking after us. Best Wishes Daz and Ade

Linden House is lovely with such friendly hosts Sue & Larry. We arrived a little early but were made very welcome and allowed to wait until our room was ready, with a cup of tea & biscuits.
Our room was immaculate and such a lovely comfy bed, tea, milk & biscuits were topped up every day for us. Large screen television in the room, makes a change from the usual portable televisions you get.
Our room was very warm, room 6 but this would not put us off returning. Breakfast was freshly cooked every morning and very tasty, hubby would have liked some baked beans with the full english but it was very tasty and other options were available on the menu.
We had a fantastic time and would recommend anyone to the Linden House. Thank you so much to Sue & Larry for looking after us.
