We had a lovely four day stay with my husband's parents who are in their 70's. Paula and Ray are so welcoming and friendly, the breakfasts were great and our rooms clean and very comfortable. The hotel is a good base to travel from and there is lots to see and do in the area. We will definitely be back... More

Happily run by the fab duo Paula and Ray who have taken over since we last stayed. Nothing's a problem. Very friendly like a home from home. Rooms have been improved all clean bright and dandy and they are continuing the upgrade when time allows. Really stayed here again as was over for surgery and needed to chill afterwards close...

On a spur of the moment decision, we made our reservation on Wednesday 30th March '16 and arrived the next day.......to a lovely warm welcome from Paula & Ray.

Thanks to you all for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you all, and we are glad you managed to pack so much into a short visit, after a long journey. We're pleased that all of the attractions worked well. Visitors often stop in Torquay for 1 or 2 nights, and then wish they had stayed longer... More

Paula and Ray were superb hosts. Breakfast was very nice and the rooms were extremely clean and what you would expect from a well run guest house. Well positioned with 10-15minute walk to beach, restaurants and bars. Absolutely no complaints and 5 stars Laraine & Adrian

Hotel was lovely and Paula and Ray go out of their way to make you feel at home. Nothing is too much bother for the owners and you go there as guests, but leave as friends. Rooms and service were great, as was the bar. Also, it is perfectly situated for visiting the surrounding area. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed for 2 nights mid week at the end of August in a family room. Hosts were exceptionally helpful, particularly regarding local attractions, buses, etc. Lovely breakfast, comfortable beds and nicely decorated room. Minor points re the shower, did run hot and cold, and my son was disappointed that the hot chocolate and biscuits were not replenished on day two.... More
