4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Lovely b&b ran by a lovely couple. Been to torquay for the last 4 years for a long weekend and this was the closest to the harbour being an easy 5 min stroll to everything. Nice clean room no 4 (4 poster bed) with a lovely outlook. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh and hot. Would deff go back one day.

Nice clean rooms and comfy beds, great location. Quite a few steps so bear this is mind. Free parking! Staff were excellent, replaced kettle straightaway. Extra points for coffee making facilities, no coffee sachets, but a jar! Rooms replenished and cleaned everyday.
