“Home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I have been visiting Torquay for nearly 50 years and this is the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Lovely stay with grandson aged 3 and mother aged 86! All well catered for. Very welcoming very comfortable and breakfast to beat many of the large hotels I have stayed in both in and around Torquay. Will definitely be returning what a gem! Friendly family welcome - didn't want to leave ! Couldn't fault anything. Many thanks for a lovely stay only wished you served dinner too.

Clean room, friendly helpful staff, great breakfast all for a very competitive price.

Warning it is on quite a steep hill but to be honest so's the whole of Torquay

Will stay again. Next time I find myself down that way.

I would definately recommend this B & B . The staff were very friendly and happy and nothing was too much trouble.
If we are down that way again would definately book in with this b and b again.

We especially liked the gran she is a wonderful character and her grandson was very helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

Great value for money. Had booked single room, but was upgraded to a double as hotel was quiet. Room very clean and presentable with everything you could want. Breakfast superb with wide choice of items including fresh fruit, everything you can think of for a cooked breakfast and choice of 3 different sorts of toast - brilliant scrambled eggs. Family very friendly and helpful and as a single female guest felt totally at ease.

Stayed at Ferndale Lodge for one night on our way to Cornwall. Paid £45 for B&B which was excellent value for money. Would recommend to family and friends. Very comfortable bed and good bathroom facilities. The gran is a lovely woman ... very entertaining

Ideally located within walking distance of town centre and harbour. Parking available. Host greeted us and spent time going over a map showing us places to visit. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - and entertaining - with gran and grandson exchanging banter. Flat screen tv, free wi-fi, toiletries and towels. Bargain.

12 minute walk to town and their new 'Gold' bus, which only costs £5.10 for whole day travelling - enabling you to get to all the sites including Totnes.

5 minute walk to large Chinese restaurant with help yourself buffet style.

Definitely a good find.

We can only say good things about Ferndale Lodge, it is run by a family who care very much about what they are doing. On arrival some 2 hours early i asked John if i could park up and come back to check in, he informed me everything was ready and i could check in there and then. He showed us to our room which was spotlessly clean. John then gave us a local map and pointed out places of interest we might like to visit. The breakfast was probably the best we have ever had, A delightful lady (the mother in law of the family) came round to make sure everyone was ok, she had us all in stitches with her little ways, she must be worth her weight in gold, bless her, her grandson who was helping the first morning should also have a mention as he was a very attentive host. It was a ten minute walk into Torquay, a slight hill coming back but ideal for walking off that extra glass of wine.
