Brooklands
Ranked #97 of 149 Torquay B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 15, 2010

Just got back from a lovely stay in Torquay (12-14th February 2010).

Jayne & Paul made us feel like family from the moment we arrived! Our room was very clean and had some lovely extras such as small bottles of wine, crisps, biscuits & a wide selection of teas, coffees & other hot drinks.

The B&B is easy to find and very well located - only a few minute walk from the town-centre and seafront. Torquay f.c football ground is about 30 minutes walk away (this was the main reason for our mini-break to the town... also as it was Valentine's weekend!).

Jayne gave us a breakfast menu sheet to fill in each evening for the following morning - there was so much to choose from! Full English breakfast, porridge, smoked salmon & scrambled egg, fish of the day, fresh fruit, croissants etc... All the food was delicious.

On Sunday morning (Valentine's Day) we had an extra surprise at breakfast - a bottle of sparkling wine, chocolates & heart-shaped confetti were left on each table!

Before we headed home, Jayne & Paul gave us bottles of chilled water for the drive - I thought this was a really thoughtful thing to do.

This was our first visit to Torquay and we had a fantastic few days - apart from going to the football match on Saturday afternoon, we also enjoyed Paignton Zoo, Kents Caverns & a restaurant called Man Fridays.

Staying at Brooklands definitely added to our lovely weekend, we highly recommend this B&B!

We needed a well earned break so headed down to Torquay for some R&R and chose Brooklands Guest House. Unfortunatly the rain didnt let up much but the welcome and hospitaitly we received soon made us feel at home, the bedroom and facilities were top rate inc free Wi-Fi - even a complementery bottle of wine or soft drinks. Everything had been catered for right down to the last detail and our hostess even recommended a local eatery where we enjoyed a super evening meal. Breakfast was surperb with all the trimmimgs and as much as you would want. We both enjoyed our stay very much with Jane and Paul and are very happy to recommend this fine guest house to all.

If you want a B&B in Torquay it would be hard to find a better one than this. Brooklands is ideally located within a short distance of the sea front and town. Special touches included an abundance of toilettries, choice of wine, sparkling water, soft drink, hot chocolate, along with the usual refinements expected of a four star abode. Jayne and Paul were exceptionally friendly, treating you as a member of their extended family. Breakfast offered a superb range of cereals and freshly cooked produce. We really enjoyed Jayne's homemade bread and I loved the scrambled eggs with salmon. On our return each evening Jayne would be there offering us a night cap, from mulled wine and mince pies to a cool refreshing glass of sparkling water with an abundance of ice. Brooklands is rated four stars by the AA. The rooms may not be the biggest, but they are spotlessly clean and the service given by Jayne and Paul deserves five stars.

I've been staying at Brooklands for a couple of years now and go down several times a year. Jayne and Paul are unfailingly welcoming; they always make me (and everyone else, I'm sure) feel valued and special; they add lots of extra little touches of luxury. The rooms are tastefully furnished and comfortable. Special diets are catered for sympathetically and breakfasts are both generous and perfectly cooked. A brilliant little establishment run by a delightful couple.

We have just returned from Brooklands and had a fantastic time. Paul and Jayne (the owners) were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They gave advice on where to go and the best pubs and restaurants to visit.
Breakfast was cooked to order and the whole place was very clean.
Would definitely go again.
