We have just returned from a 3 night trip to Torquay and we are so pleased we chose the Harbour Heights for our stay. The friendly hospitality that we received from Liz and her lovely daughter, who run the guest house between them, was second to none. Our room was excellent value, we stayed in room 6 which Liz has... More

Lovely little guest house with very polite, helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast came out piping hot and there was plenty to choose from. Rooms clean and tidy and cleaned every day if you wish. Would rate this place to anyone. Lovely place.

Thank you so much, I am really glad you enjoyed your stay with us as that is our sole aim. The TVs are way too small, I inherited them with the property. Once I get the double glazing in I am going to completely redecorate the top floor and replace all the TVs in all the rooms. I do have... More

What a great place to stay! Liz the owner is just starting out with her business and is doing a fabulous job, she has a warm and friendly personality which will serve her well in the future, and nothing is too much trouble.

We had a room for one night as we were going to Newton Abbot Races. We literally checked in and went out. Liz was most helpful with directions for buses from Torquay to Newton Abbot. We had a lovely bright and comfy room and after our long day out it was most welcoming. Thank you Liz for a lovely stay... More

With only a slight decline to the water front, Harbour Heights was a few minutes walk to restaurants, pubs, clubs and shopping. The guest house is spotlessly clean. The proprietor keeps the house tidy but... More
