Garway lodge was a lovely, clean, friendly, home from home guesthouse. The room was immaculate as was the en-suite.The breakfasts were filling and freshly cooked and plenty of home made jam for your toast! I was in Torquay meeting my brother for the very first time in 46 years. (I was adopted). I was so nervous, but Julia, the owner,... More

A lovely B&B that has the bonus of allowing dogs to stay. We had a good sized room with bathroom on the ground floor. Hosts are extremely friendly and the breakfast is excellent with several choices available and plenty of home made preserves etc. A small green is handy within a couple of minutes walk of the front door for...

Great B&B. I felt very welcome and felt more like I was staying at a well stocked Friends house. My room was clean and had everything I needed. While I only stayed one night I would definitely go back. Julia was very helpful in preparing our breakfast early, catering for all dietary requirements. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail covers... More

Julia and Paul made me very welcome. My room was clean with a comfortable bed. Everything worked. Plenty of tea and coffee and biscuits. Enjoyed chatting to Julia in the evening after a full day of sightseeing or Agatha Christie related events. Garway Lodge is a comfortable walk from the sea or handy buses.

Another trip to Devon for a week and what a sheer delight to find this dog friendly guest house, well located, just a 20 minute stroll to the seafront & a little further to Torquay harbour & town. On arrival we were effortlessly checked into our superior en-suite room ( 3 ) by the effervescent co-proprietor Julia, we found our... More

Garway Lodge was clean, friendly and comfortable. Stayed on business and Julia arranged an earlier breakfast for me as the standard times were a little too late, this was much appreciated. Breakfast itself was great. Room and bed were comfortable and included a camping fridge which was great to cool water for work the next day. Would recommend for anyone... More

We had a very nice, relaxing weekend. Julia is very frendly and the room is clean and comfortable. The place is 25 min walking to the City centre and the coast, so you don't need a car while staying in.
