Colindale Guest House
Ranked #72 of 85 Hotels in Torquay
Reviewed March 26, 2012

We have just returned from a short break at Colindale and it did not disappoint in any way. The facilities are excellent, a cosy room with all comforts. Barry and Sven's attention to detail is so very good and we were made to feel welcome form the moment we arrived. We have no hesitation in recommending 'Colindale'. The food was particularly good and to a high standard. We will with out doubt be returning the next time we come to Torbay.

THANKS Barry and SVEN keep up the good work !!!!!

We stayed at the Colindale Guest House on Saturday 10th March. We both found the place to be delightful in every way, clean, tidy and beautifully presented. Lovely room, comfy bed, good shower etc.
Barry and Sven were great, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was probably the best breakfast we have had for a very long time. We would highly recomend this Guest House any time.

Room Tip: We stayed in the top room which was superb but maybe a little small. Barry said to try and book ear...

When we first arrived at Colindale, after a long coach journey from London, we were warmly greeted by Barry and Sven with tea and a mince pie - this was a lovely start to a fantastic stay. The room was very comfortable and it was very hard to get out of bed in the morning! But, the breakfast was well worth getting up for - plenty of fruit, cereal, juices and the cooked breakfast was out of this world. We stayed in the Colindale over Christmas and had a stunning Christmas meal with Barry and Sven and some of the other guests - it made us feel right at home and the meal itself was outstanding. We definately recommend staying at the Colindale as we will definately be going back in May. What fantastic people Barry and Sven (and Thai (cat) and Cara (little dog) are! If anyone is heading to Torquay, this is the guest house to stay at.

Room Tip: Room 6 was lovely

Delightful hotel, tastefully decorated with charm and homeliness. Excellent breakfast. Comfortable and clean room with shower ensuite. Well stocked bar. Short walk from Torquay Station and beach. A little further to town and the harbour.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

I stayed at the Colindale with my friend and her 14 year old Son for three days during their trip to England from Singapore. Basil and Sven were very welcoming and courteous. The whole house is filled with books, china, pictures and teddy bears and I was left wondering how on earth they managed to keep it so spotless with all that dusting to do. There is a bit of a time warp in that everywhere is blue, yellow and white and the decor is very 90's, cloths over tables etc., which is not really my thing any more. The rooms were clean and comfortable if not a little overcrowded with furniture. "En-suites" very small and could really do with some updating but again they were very clean and certainly adequate. There is parking outside the house or on their drive which was handy. The walk into town is probably a mile or so at least. What I cannot leave without praising is their exceptional breakfasts. There is even a menu. I didn't have the Devon breakfast as I think I may have been there all day eating it but I certainly tried the smaller version, an omelette one morning (the best I have ever had) and scrambled egg and smoked salmon on another. Outstanding breakfasts! I would probably not stay here again but that is only because I am much more of a contemporary hotel girl than a guest house one. That however, is the only reason. Basil and Sven's hosting could not be faulted, they are both extremely nice men and everywhere was clean and comfortable.

Stayed one night 23rd September. Very clean and friendly bedrooms was a little small but very well appointed. Very helpful with local restaurant advise. Breakfast was great with a good choice of different things as well as the usual full English. My wife took a shine to Cara the dog.
