I must add to the positive reviews. My husband and I spent two nights at the Babbacombe Guest House and had a wonderful time. Tony and Pauline were welcoming and very helpful, a pleasure to talk to. The room we has was spotlessly clean and comfortable, with ample provisions. It is well situated and was an excellent base for our travels around the area. We would definitely stay again.

What a place. Lovely comfortable rooms, great breakfast selection, good location. A perfect spot to relax, I was very reluctant to leave! Tony and Pauline are wonderful, very attentive and were even so kind as to drive me to the station on my departure. I am already looking forward to returning in the future!

Tony and Pauline gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival and continued to be fine hosts throughout our stay. The breakfasts were excellent with a good choice offered and our rooms were generously stocked with an excellent range of provisions. The whole place was spotlessly clean and we felt at home. The position of the guest house, so near to many facilities including the sea, was excellent. We will definitely come again.

Dear Barry G, You are quite right that we are under a 5 minute stroll to the views of the sea and Babbacombe Downs. We are pleased you enjoyed the stay with us and that you particularly mentioned our award winning breakfast. Thank you for your kind review.

We can only add to the positive reviews here - Tony and Pauline run a faultless guest house. They're great hosts, Pauline's breakfasts are already missed, the rooms are kept to a high standard. What can we say? It's just a great place to stay. Thoroughly recommended.

What a gem of a place. The location, hosts, food, rooms. Could not fault anything. Pauline and Tony were the perfect hosts throughout our whole stay and Paulines breakfasts are to die for. Very clean and comfortable rooms which were decorated to a high standard. We had a double room on the ground floor and our children (aged 14 and 5) had the double room on the first floor. This guest house is like a home from home. Would recommend anyone to stay here. Thanks Tony and Pauline for making our stay a fantastic one. Hope to see you again in the future.

Room Tip: The room on the first floor has 2 big windows which is lovely and bright.
