Chose Mount Edgcombe for a 3 day break as had been there with the previous owners. Was not disappointed at all with new owners, Jamie and Yvonne. COVID safe, lovely room, great breakfast and wonderful, helpful hosts. Would highly recommend this B&B, with a short walk to the seafront it’s an ideal spot to relax. We will be returning!

Good location for walking into Torquay. We had a nice big room on the ground floor with a large comfortable bed for a great night's sleep . We stayed here for a week and enjoyed an excellent breakfast every day. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Mount Edgcombe for 4 nights and had such a warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. In these covid times every effort was made to make you feel safe. Breakfast was superb a very wide choice. The location was also perfect, just a ten minute stroll to the sea front. There knowledge of the area was very informative and helped us alot. Thank you for a fantastic stay. Adam & Sarah
