“Great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2008

We found Babbacombe Palms to be a well-kept and well-run establishment. Everything was in pristine condition and the landlord and landlady were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was substantial, very tasty and well presented - prepared, cooked and served personally by Ray, the owner. All the guests chatted to each other over breakfast and it really felt like home from home.

We will certainly recommend this place to all our family and friends and will be returning time and again to enjoy the hospitality and friendly atmosphere. The location is also superb for seaside walks and touring the coastline of Devon, as well as being close enough to go up to the moors.

Give it a go - you won't regret it!

My Wife and I have just spent 3 wonderful days at the Babbacombe Palms guest house it is by far the best guest house we have stayed in for many a year, and we would have no hesitation in recommending this guest house. The proprietors Ray & Denise were very friendly and accomodating, nothing was too much trouble ! our room was excellent, tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was cooked by Ray every day to perfection, because of their outstanding hospitality and friendliness I just HAD to write this review, It made our stay in Devon that much more enjoyable.
