I booked a small single room and it was absolutely fine. Clean and well maintained. I needed occasionally to use my laptop to connect to my work in Australia. Graham and Judith bent over backwards so that I had an area outside of my room to work. I would recommend anyone to stay at this place. It is just a... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay here. The guest house is among the cleanest we have stayed in, the standard of housekeeping is exceptional. There has been some remarks about the climb to the entrance, I have difficulty walking but had no problem as there's a good handrail to hang on to. Breakfast was excellent, good choice. Rooms are...

Breakfast was outstanding with lots of choice. Couldn't believe how close we were to the harbour, centre of town and restaurants. The hill was difficult as myself and my husband have... More

We spent a very comfortable night here, it was spotlessly clean, wonderfully warm, very convenient for harbour, town and theatre locations with a fantastic selection of food at breakfast. Graham and Judith were warm empathetic hosts who made us extremely welcome and overall excellent value for money we will certainly return here when we next stay in Torquay.
