“Wonderful to come back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had stayed here for a few days at Easter and everything with Seabreeze had been brilliant despite the cold weather. This time we stayed for a week and the weather was great every day as well.
We stayed in the Riddlecombe Suite which is the new downstairs accommodation where there was previously a café. This consisted of a sun lounge at the front with the normal great views, sofa, TV and fridge etc. along with a large bedroom with a comfy 6' bed and another TV. The bathroom is actually a spacious wetroom with a wonderful shower.
Everything is accessible and doors are wide enough for wheelchairs. The bathroom also has additional holds and handles to help. Users of this room are also permitted to park on the front drive where there is also outdoor seating and a swing-seat.
Colin and Michelle were fantastic hosts and breakfast (with the normal extensive choice of dishes) kept us full until the evening.
Can recommend the Himalaya (Nepalese/Indian), Hanburys (Fish and Chips) and the Royal (Friendly pub with good food and beers) within walking distance for evening meals.
Already looking forward to our next visit - no idea when we'll make it but be sure we will!

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms. The Maidencombe is the one at the back without the view and is consequently...

We are so glad you enjoyed staying in our ground floor room. It was a pleasure for us and we are glad you had some really fab 'English Riviera' weather. We look forward to seeing you again.

We have just returned from our first stay at Seabreeze and would thoroughly recommend it. The room - we stayed in the Oddicombe Room which has a lovely balcony overlooking the sea - and bathroom were spotless and very well laid out. Even the little things that normally 'annoy' whilst on holiday had been carefully thought through - for example there was sufficient storage space in the spacious bathroom for all our toiletry items, there was a jug to fill the kettle rather than try to force it under the hand basin taps, there was a fridge on the landing with real milk and there were enough hangers. Breakfast was excellent with eggs poached to perfection (and that is hard) every day. Michelle and Colin were the perfect hosts and we felt very welcome. We travelled by train and Colin even drove us to and from the station which was wonderful. We do hope to stay there again. Alan and Rosemary

Room Tip: The first floor balcony room had a spectacular view of the sea.

Have just returned from our 3rd visit to the Sea Breeze and again we wasn't disappointed it just gets better and better from the warm welcome to the very comfortable large en-suite rooms, comfy beds, excellent quality of bed linen and towels to the very tasty and varied menu for breakfast. Thanks again Colin and Michelle we will definitely be seeing you both again.Tom and Lynn.

We stayed for three nights commencing Easter Sunday and were made to feel welcome from the start with a nice pot of coffee to relax to after a four-hour drive. The Oddicombe Room (first floor) was spotless with a large bed and comfy chairs. Colin and Michelle were fantastic hosts throughout our stay and were there to help with anything we needed.
We were given a pass for the car park round the corner. It turned out that this was valid for all Torbay Council car parks so we saved on parking throughout our stay.
Breakfast was fantastic. Not only was there plenty of it (kept us full until the evening) but everything was cooked to perfection and there was a good selection of fresh fruit and drinks on offer too.
View from the balcony was wonderful, even though it was too cold to sit out there for long. Plenty to do in the local area as well. I'd recommend the Himalaya restaurant (Nepalese/Indian) and the Oddicombe Inn for food although there were other nice-looking places we would have tried had we been there longer.
On our last morning we booked to come back in June. We'll be in the accessable room (or rooms) downstairs (still has a good view) and are looking forward to it already.
Thank you so much.

Room Tip: The three sea-facing rooms all have great views.

A very lovely B&B ran by Colin and Michelle. Spotless room (Oddicombe). Stunning view of the coast from the balcony. Extremely well placed with great facilities around. Thoroughly recommend the freshly cooked full English breakfast but to be fair, anything you want is on the cards with bright and cheerful service. I'll be back, you should, give it a whirl :-). Thanks to both of you.
