“Perfect B&B in Torquay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

This was our second visit to Torquay and as we were only staying for a couple of days, I wanted to stay somewhere close to everything. Linden House fit the bill exactly...it is only a few minutes walk from the train station, town and beach and had great reviews on Trip Advisor and a good price.

Sue welcomed us when we got there, showed us to our room and offered us tea and coffee and lemon cake (which was delicious) while she gave us some information about the area and recommended restaurants to visit. We were made to feel really welcome and at home and it was a really nice start to our short break.

We stayed in room 6 which is listed as one of the boutique rooms. It was quite a small double but had everything in it that we needed, plenty of space to store bags and clothes and a decent sized bathroom. The room was immaculate in terms of cleanliness as was the rest of the B&B.

Breakfast was amazing. The freshly made fruit smoothies were a real highlight and I really liked that almost everything on the menu was locally sourced.

It was raining on the day we were leaving and Sue kindly offered us a lift to the train station so we didn't get wet. It was a really nice touch.

Linden House is a perfect place to stay in Torquay and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Having read the reviews in your advisor column I can only say that every EXCELLENT review was spot on. Booking in on Monday 11th Feb the smile and greeting was all we needed on a dull and sunless day. The welcoming cuppa and the lemon cake ( a Larry experiment ) set off the two day stay. Breakfast again 5Star, room same, this place could not be bettered, in any way. If we ever have to visit that part of the south coast again there is only one place that we would stop, LINDEN HOUSE full stop.
Thanks Tripadvisor for your service.

Room Tip: Any room in this beautiful house would do, the whole area is very quiet.

Just stayed at Linden House and i would just like to say what an exceptional B&B.Sue and her husband Larry were exceptional hosts.The breakfast was cooked fresh and i can still taste it now.
Really clean.Rooms were decorated and furnished to a very high standard and nothing was too much trouble.A highly recomended accomodation and would recommend this to anyone wanting a little bit extra from a B&B Mark Tasker Shropshire

Just returned from Linden House 3/02/2013 and what can i say, from the excellent welcome by Sue, to the boutique room (7), everything is exceptional,cleanliness is exceptional,food is exceptional,hosts are fabulous,nothing is too much trouble, will stay again but next time will book an upstairs room as the bed was slightly small for 2 fairly large people, that was the only downside.Sue and Larry are the best host's that can be found and Larry's breakfasts are to die for. Thank you to Sue & Larry for an exceptional weekend. Rosemarie &Robert

My partner and I spent the weekend at Linden House for a quick break. What can I say? From the moment we arrived, greeted by bubbly, welcoming, Sue, until the moment we left, it was delightful. We stayed in bedroom 3 - super king-size bed - and it was beautiful. Gorgeous furnishings, very comfy bed, spotlessly clean - everywhere! Excellent in-room facilities, lovely, really lovely. We looked over the lovely gardens and although there is a passing road, after 7pm all was quiet.
Following good advice from Sue we went out for a wonderful romantic Italian dinner and enjoyed possible the best fish and chips ever! We were so spoilt with Larry's breakfasts, delicious to the very last mouthful, we could not resist the full english - both days!
We left feeling really spolit and indulged. Such a beautiful house, cared for by two very special people :)
We shall be going back!

Room Tip: Room 3 - beautiful spacious room. Seperate bathroom and toilet. Very big bed!
