“Fantastic Weekend Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Fantastic weekend break at the Cranborne Guest House. Richard and Dean were superb hosts, they gave great advice for local attractions and restaurants. The rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean, we would easily recommend to friends and family. Thank you N&R

We had a lovely 5 night stay at Cranborne House.Our room was large plus we had a small fridge which not many places have.Great position to walk into town and eating places.Spotlessly clean.We were made feel very welcome.Great breakfast as well; nothing was too much trouble.A must stay if you are in the area.Thanks.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet even though it faced Belgrave Rd.Very handy postion.

Had another very pleasant, enjoyable weekend break with Dean and Richard. They really can't do enough for you to make sure you have a great stay at the Cranborne. Only sorry we couldn't get Fozzy Bear for them. Maybe next time!

A lovely holiday in a beautiful hotel. The hosts Dean and Richard are very helpful, friendly and made the stay a pleasant one. The English Breakfast was very enjoyable. The room was very nicely decorated and bed very comfortable to sleep in. Would recommend it to my family and friends for their holidays. Photos on line don't do it justice its far nice. Very derserving of its four stars for accommodation.

Room Tip: Pick the room for the number going. Book now rather than later for going on a holiday, its so nice t...

First class, we enjoy short breaks and i must say this is one of the very best. No hassle very easy check in great room very handy for all the Torquay landmarks. If you do fancy a break please go to the zoo its a lond day but well worth it also the steam train journey to Dartmouth is well worth checking out.

Another wonderful experience staying at the Cranborne. After visiting in January we were keen to visit once again, and we were not let down. This hotel seems to be simply leagues above any other in close proximity. We stayed with my parents and Gran, the latter visiting both Torquay and this guest house for the first time. I know she was knocked for six by the standard of the Cranborne. Dean and Richard continue to strike the perfect balance of what is required to be first class hosts, whilst the rooms/ guest lounge ooze class. The volume of thank-you cards in the lounge tells you all you need to know. We are very much looking forward to a return in the future- just as we were at the end of our first visit!

Hi Guys, we would just like to say thank you so much for your review. It's always great when guests return and it was even better to have all of your family here together. We did have a good laugh in the bar! Can't wait until you all come back to see us. All the best, Dean & Richard.

We would highly recommend Cranborne Guest Accommodation for your holiday in Torquay. The owners Dean and Richard were so welcoming, friendly and fun, also very informative with suggestions of great places to visit. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice and very accommodating with vegetarian options. We loved the lounge and the cocktail bar to enjoy a few drinks while relaxing. Our room was beautifully presented, very clean and comfortable and serviced every day. We initially booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for a week! We had such a brilliant time and can't wait to return. Superb value for money!
