“Fab-U-Lous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Myself, my husband and my Mum stayed at Seabreeze from 22nd to 26th July 2013 and we really could not have found a better place to stay ! Michelle made us so welcome with tea and warm home made cake and she and Colin are first class hosts - nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are immaculate with lovely quality bedding and towels - the rooms are light, bright and airy and spotlessly clean. My Mum is 82 and in a wheelchair so she got the best room - the ground floor Riddlecombe with fab views and separate lounge - my hubby and I had a room at the top of the house which sadly did not have a balcony or a view but was still very comfortable and spacious. The breakfasts were really good with plenty of choice - my waist line can vouch for that !! We all had a wonderful holiday and would certainly recommend this guest house to everyone - the only comments I have are all good - nothing bad at all to say - first class !!!

Room Tip: rooms at the front have wonderful views

Enjoyed our stay at seabreeze b+b . michelle and colin are a friendly wecoming and helpul couple. It was great to arrive and be served tea and biscuits on the balcony the views are wonderful and we made the most of the sunshine.Our room was bright and fresh with comfortable beds and a spotless bathroom. Good to have the use of a fringe to keep a bottle of wine chilled ! Plenty of places to have a meal and drink near by , enjoyed the railway cafe for lunch . Lots to do in the area had a nice trip on the river Dart , enjoyed an evening at Theatre just a few minutes across the downs . Lots of seats on the downs to relax and watch the world go by . All in all a lovely weeks holiday and staying at the seabreeze was the icing on the already brilliant cake ! Hope to return .

Room Tip: Balcony room was perfect for us.

Colin and Michelle are the most friendly and welcoming hosts. The room (Babbacombe) was spotlessly clean, spacious and with wonderful views from the balcony. The bed was the most comfortable on which we have ever slept on holiday! Breakfasts absolutely first class, excellent choices and freshly cooked to order - perfection! I cannot say enough good things about Seabreeze. Dining on the balcony was a joy! Have already re-booked! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The two balcony rooms offer stunning views across the bay and are large and roomy. They are fab if...

We had not planned to go away but as the weather forecast was good, we decided to take a chance and book somewhere last minute on line. We could not believe our luck when we were met by such genial hosts and were shown to our stylish, absolutely spotless balcony room with a stunning view. The breakfast was excellent, lots of options as well as a beautifully cooked full English. We wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely go back next time we visit Devon.

Thank you very much for your review. It is good to know that you liked your room and balcony, we hope to change the bath/shower to a large walk in shower in the top room (Babbacombe) over the winter which we hope you will like. We look forward to seeing you again when you are next in Devon. Kind regards to you both.

My sister and I spent three nights in the Riddlecombe Room during July 2013..... Michelle and Colin could not do enough for us.... on arrival we were welcomed outside by Michelle with an offer of a cup of tea...... our room was spotless, delightfully furnished with a subtle happy holiday theme that would cheer anyone up in seconds of arriving........... We were shown the other rooms which were also fantastic with balcony's overlooking the sea,,,,,,,,, (It is also permitted to smoke in the garden of the Riddlecombe room and on the balconies of the other rooms with the door shut obviously taking into account the comfort of other guests and next door's guests).......

The Seabreeze is a little gem - so much attention to detail, incredibly varied and delicious breakfasts - what more could you want or need......... we will definitely be returning.........

Room Tip: All the rooms we looked at and the one we stayed in were superb........
