Stayed for 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are superb. Torquay is a great place with lots to do and places to visit and this hotel was the perfect base to explore Torquay and the surrounding areas. Will definitely return!

We booked last minute with the South View Hotel. On arrival we were greeted by Chris, one of the very friendly owners. Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious, lots of nice little touches with toiletries and complimentary drinks tray. Breakfast was one of the best we have ever had.

We spent two nights at this friendly, comfortable, small hotel. Excellent room with everything you could need. Also freshly cooked breakfast with award winning sausages. We highly recommend. Local buses take you to places of interest so no need to use a car.

Stayed for 10 days. We had a very clean and comfortable room with an excellent bed. Felt like home. The hosts were always friendly with extra special touches. Breakfast was always generous with a variety of choices every day. The dinner menu was absolutely gorgeous. Overall it was a wonderful stay. Worth every penny!!!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and appreciating our cleanliness and our pricing, which, to be honest is similar to most small guesthouses in the bay, we just try to offer value for money. Regarding your other points, if short term guests hang up their towels on the rails, we presume they are happy to continue... More
