I will admit it has been a while since I stayed in a B&B & I must say I was beyond surprised with my stay at Garway Lodge. It was fantastic! We were arriving early, as we were going to the races at Newton Abbot (only 1 stop on the train), which was no problem at all. We were greeted... More

This was a nights stay thanks to our children getting this for our anniversary present. It was lovely, the hotel was spotless and we had the most wonderful welcome. It makes you realise how much you miss that personal touch with the larger hotels. Everything about this was perfect, and there was nothing that I could think of that they... More

From the moment we stepped through the front door we were made very welcome. Pot of tea and biscuits accompanied the run through of the house rules and the places to visit and to dine.

Clean, comfortable room and excellent cooked breakfast using local produce and home-made preserves. The reception could not have been friendlier or more helpful - the personal touch does set it apart from a typical hotel stay. Thoroughly recommended and I will certainly stay again next time I am in the area.

I feel the couple who owned this guest house could do know more to make your stay comfortable, the standard of the breakfast was extremely high. The room was spotlessly clean and had endless supplies of tea, coffee etc. All the free amenities that were offered were replenished daily. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

In this day and age customer service is,unfortunately,not always what you would like,or indeed expect.This cannot be said of the Garway. Julia was welcoming,polite and extremely helpful with seemingly nothing too much trouble - she even gave my wife some coffee to take away and sample.

Julia is trying very hard to provide a homely B&B ambience and is clearly the driving force behind the enterprise. For one night in Torquay, it's fit for purpose. Our room was very clean, with a comfortable bed but didn't need the 2 large chairs which meant you couldn't open the wardrobe or close the curtains! It's probably a good... More
