“Good value stay at Parks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Proprietor, Tim, made us feel at home.
Good location and clean comfortable accommodation.
Excellent breakfasts and bar open in the evening.
Small but well decorated double bedroom with new recently fitted shower room. The only minor problem was that the bedroom TV lacked an adequate aerial signal to produce a steady picture.
Overall excellent value.

Room Tip: Book early.

Thanks, the TV aerial socket had developed a fault and has now been replaced and is in perfect working order. As we say to all guests if there is a problem we will try to solve it asap.

From the moment my 8year old son & I were picked up from the station by Tim, the owner, from being dropped off again by him a week later, this was a holiday to remember! With outstanding friendly, informative service from the whole family (plus in-house helper) this truly is a guest house that goes that extra mile for you and some...! I recommend this clean, quality establishment good or bad weather! My little boy would have stayed by the pool all day every day but fr all the days out I'd planned...there's plenty to do & see! Thank you Tim & Sarah for a wonderful holiday x

Room Tip: View of the pool can be seen from the back of the house.

from the moment we arrived Tim the owner was there to welcome us.we had a family room as we were staying with the our 2 children and dog and it was spotlessly clean.The parks is only a short walk in to Torquay.The breakfast is of very high standard for a B and B and Tim is more than helpful with everything.when leaving Tim realised I had left 2 dresses behind and posted them back to me.we had an amazing time and will definitely be back.

My wife and I stayed at the Parks over Christmas 2012 and we had an excellent time. Tim is an excellent host who caters to your every need, and the accommodation is very comfortable.

The breakfast was excellent with plenty of options, and the location is great with the seafront and town nearby, and a pub just around the corner.

Highly recommended - we will definitely return!

Another great holiday at The Parks! Tim and Sarah were as friendly and obliging as ever, the room was very comfortable and the bed was gigantic. The breakfast is now served later which enabled us to have a lie in. Due to the warm weather we were able to spend more time round the pool which was very relaxing. We will definitely be going back to The Parks.

What a lovely place to stay from the minute we arrived Tim was so friendly and helpful explained everything to us told us we could come and go as we wanted. The room was very clean and the bed was so comfy. It was good that breakfast was not to 8-45 as this gave us a chance to have a lay in. The breakfast was brilliant, plenty of selection . Would recommend to anybody to stay there and will be going back ourselves.
