This B&B is located great for a visit to Torquay, though some noise from the traffic in the street below. Friendly and welcoming owners. Building old and tired. Could do with a serious makeover and cleaning up. Bathroom small and with a unpleasant odor. Breakfast okay with individual options.

Room was light airy and clean with a sink. Towels were large and fluffy! Excellent choice of breakfast - orange juice, fresh fruit with yoghurt or cereals, scrambled egg... More
