Railway users will be very happy to stay here as it is also within ten minutes walk from the local railway station. Upon arriving, we did have a bit of a... More

My husband and I have just spent a fantastic weekend at the Bahamas, it is our second visit. John and Sonia are lovely, welcoming and helpful but not intrusive you really feel at home and relaxed, with no pressure. The accomodation is spotlessly clean and provides everything you could want. Breakfast is freshly cooked, delicious and provides a good choice.... More

Had a great stay at the Bahamas, the location is great as it is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect, just what we needed. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Torquay!

We enjoyed our stay at The Bahamas B&B. The room was clean, comfortable and perfect for our needs. Our hosts were welcoming but not overbearing and the B&B was the perfect base to explore South Devon. Ample parking, good central location and reasonable price. What more could you want?!
