“Fantastic hotel- beautiful setting, very welcoming.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I recently stayed at the hotel for the first time with a very dear friend who's been going there for many years. The hotel is ideally placed - just a short walk from Meadfoot beach. It is beautifully decorated and immaculate. The owner offered us fantastic personal service- nothing ever appeared to be too much trouble for her. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other people, and cannot wait to return.........

This guest house was a real positive surprise. Its wonderful situation above Meadfoot beach, the beautiful house itself and the lovely decorated rooms.

Additionally the propriertors were absolutely nice and courteous and helpful. During our stay we had the enduring feeling of being welcomed and cared of.

We wil definitely come back and can highly recommend to book your overnight stay in Torquay at this place!

We (my husband myself and our 5 year old) stayed for a couple of days in August and we loved it - haldon priors is a beautiful place with high ceilings and large airy rooms. We had the sea view room and the bed was so comfortable. It has an indoor and outdoor pool - we only used the indoor pool which was lovely and warm. It is only a short walk to either the sea or the harbour so it's perfectly placed. The owner, Ping, is really lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for a beautiful stay.

Room Tip: Sea view room has a really comfortable bed

My partner and I stayed here 4 years ago and had a wonderful couple of days, We recently returned for a long weekend. On both occasions we have stayed in the junior suite which has one of the most comfortable beds I think we have ever slept in.

The standard the first time was exceptional but Ping has now upgraded her facilities to include a wonderful indoor swimming pool and fantastic terrace with lovely views of the sea. You can not find fault with anything at Haldon Priors the hospitality and warmth shown to you from the onset continues for the duration of your stay with nothing being too much trouble.

I informed Ping that it was partners birthday when I booked the room and a card and chocolates were waiting for him on our bed when we returned from breakfast. Breakfast itself is an extremely relaxed affair and the quality of the food is wonderful as is the choice.

We actually chose to remain in the hotel on one day, but what a great way to spend a day. We swam, relaxed in the jacuzzi chairs and chilled out in the sauna, we rounded our day off by lounging on the terrace in the sunshine with a bottle of fizz. We definitely return as Spain just doesn't seem as appealing now

Well done to everyone at Haldon Priors..

Room Tip: The junior suite is a little bit dark but the bed and the marble bathroom more than make up for it.

I stayed at this bed and breakfast with my husband and father-in-law last weekend on the way to a wedding. When we arrived we were offered tea or coffee on a terrace with a sea view and overlooking relaxing perfumed gardens. Our room which was the junior suite was lovely even after allowing for a window that was set back from the sleeping area and limited views. The bathroom was excellent and spacious and the toiletries from the Isle of Arran were an experience in themselves and something I will now order on the internet for use at home. Breakfast was very relaxed, with a nice choice and the full English was very tasty with "real" bacon. The hostess was very attentive and kind to my father-in-law who is in his mid eighties - he loved it and was trying to work out how he could return on his own! A couple of light bulbs in the room needed to be replaced and herb teas on the room tray would be appreciated for next time please as I don't drink tea or coffee. My husband and I used the indoor swimming pool early on the Sunday morning and the covers had been removed in readiness for us. Whilst the pool was only small it had a lovely feeling and I could have spent longer soaking up the ambience. We were sad to see that this bed and breakfast wasn't full as the effort made by the hostess deserved the extra business. We felt it was a real treat but one that we wouldn't be able to repeat often due to the cost. The prices were a little higher than some other places we considered which were fully booked. The whole atmosphere and location was one of peace and tranquility - we will definitely return and recommend.

Room Tip: Check for cheapest available room particularly if you are offered a suite.
