We travelled with 2 adults and 1 kid. Our room was spacy (family room with actually two bedrooms) and equipped with a fridge, tea cooker, a new shower and everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable. Marion welcomed us warmly and gave us many recommendations and tipps. Highlight definitely was the breakfast. From self-made bread and marmalade to fresh... More

Children loved having their own adjoining room. The outdoor pool was great.the free wifi was an added bonus. The breakfast was excellent. Marion was amazing... More

We have just came back from an amazing short break in Torquay. We stayed for 4 nights and everything was excellent, our room was beautiful with views of the sea. We stayed in the riviera room and for a B&B (I would describe it as a boutique hotel) its the best I've stayed in, massive comfortable bed, beautifully decorated with... More

Friendly and welcoming owners, who were really helpful, even getting us soya milk and yogurts due to food allergies. Very comfortable room with a view of the garden. Breakfast was delicious - homemade bread, croissants, cereals, fruit juice and a cooked buffet.

As soon as we arrived we felt at home immediately. Greeted by the lovely Marion with a pot of tea. The home cooked breakfasts were amazing and could tell that it was all locally sourced. Accommodation was cleaned daily and had everything we needed. Nothing was too much trouble for Marion we felt comfortable and at ease. Our young girls... More

Booked a two night stay at the Charterhouse with my friend. Marion and Les are the most warming hosts you could meet. I've eaten many a cooked breakfast but this hotel seems to have got it right to a T. Great quality ingredients, beautifully presented and piping hot. Very cute hotel, nice gardens and an amazing 20 minute walk into... More

We stayed in the family interconnecting room, which our 5 year old loved as he had his own room with his own TV! Marion greeted us, showed us to our room and gave us lots of information about the local area it was our first time in Torquay. Breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choice. We were made to feel...

I can appreciate that this B&B is lovely but it wasn't the restful break we wanted. We had booked the Riviera room and it was beautiful. The bed was big and with two windows the room was light with good views. The bathroom was also spacious and it was a nice room to be in. We did have a bit... More

Marion & Les are warm, friendly, excellent hosts. Rooms are comfy, quiet, with all the extras you could need. We usually have a garden room, with its own front door and no steps to the breakfast room. Right opposite the swimming pool, we often have the resident pooches Toffee & Phoebe visit us. Breakfasts are amazing, including homemade bread and... More
