Vicky welcomed us immediately and was so friendly ,she checked that no one had booked her last room online and then proceeded to book us in, we were shown to our room ,it was immaculate, clean and lovely furnishings and...

The room had a lovely outlook and was spotless, breakfast was excellent, you should never be hungry,... More

Had a warm greeting and welcome from Vicki who went out of her way to make sure we have a great stay. Breakfast were so many choices, really clean and comfortable bed with a tidy bedroom. Great view from the window as well as the dining room. Close to Torquay down town its a bout 10-15 minutes walk.

Melba House Hotel was a real find! An excellent bedroom.A substantial breakfast and a most pleasant and helpful hostess! Melba House is also within comfortable walking distance of Torquay town.I believe it only has six bedrooms and this seemed to add to the friendly attitude of the other guests towards each other.

Have just enjoyed another week at Melba House. Definitely one of the nicest B&Bs we've ever stayed in, from the warm, friendly welcome to the fab breakfasts (love the pretty ramekins the jams and marmalade are served in). Situated in a really nice part of Torquay, it is within easy walking distance of the beach, harbour and town centre. Also... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A friendly, welcoming non smoking bed and breakfast hotel with private car park and all rooms en-suite. We are one of the best located hotels in Torquay, only 350 yards from sea front, and 250 yards from the Riviera conference centre. The railway station is about 10 minutes level walk away. The hotel overlooks a park, where cricket and rugby can be watched from our terrace. The harbour and town are also just a short stroll away, where you will find the many restaurants and bars Torquay has to offer. ... more   less
