Reviewed August 16, 2010

My girlfriend and I stayed at Berkeley House from the 9th to the 14th August and I cannot write enough superlatives about the place. Firstly, how modern, comfortable, spacious and well-priced the accommodation itself is but also, more importantly, how warm, friendly and generally helpful the owners Jon and Martine were. They bent over backwards to ensure that we enjoyed our holiday to it’s very utmost. To cite just a few examples, neither my girlfriend nor I drive so we had to get the train to Torquay and once there, get around on the bus. Jon and Martine picked us up from the station on arrival, cooked breakfast for us a little bit early one day so we could get the bus to Dartmoor and even dropped our luggage off at the station for us on our return journey – along with a packed lunch for us both, it’s personal touches like this which went towards making their place such a pleasure to stay at. They went out of their way for us all week and ensured we had a holiday we will never forget. I could not recommend this place more highly – if not for all of the above, because the breakfast is absolutely cracking, 100% perfectly cooked fried eggs every single morning!

We booked a few nights away in Babbacombe, last minute. John and Martine were very accomodating and made us feel right at home from the very start.

The B&B is located in the middle of Babbacombe Seafront so everything is a very short distance from where you are. Lots of places to eat and drink close by. There is an amazing view from the front over the bay and is lovely to sit and look out while eating your breakfast. Martine cooks up a fantastic full english breakfast and John always make sure you have enough toast or tea and coffee.

We had a very comfortable room with ensuite bathroom, both were very clean and well maintained. Complimentary tea and coffee making faciities which is always a big plus for me. Room had flat screen tv with dvd player, and they have a large dvd collection which they don't mind you borrowing for those early nights or rainy days.

They have free parking and are very lenient with regards to 24 hour access, and things like bringing take-away food to your room. I would definitely consider returning to this B&B.

Stayed a couple of nights here on the way to Cornwall.

We had room 7 on top floor - a premier sea front balcony room.

The room is huge with an enormous bathroom and a balcony with stunning views over the Babbacombe downs and the sea. Very quiet at night even though there are hotels and restaurants along the road. The room had everything you could need and more.

Breakfast has a very good choice - you just tick what you want on the sheet and hand in the previous evening - simple!

There is parking for 4 cars at the front but you have to park 2 abreast one in front of the other because of the limited space. Didn't cause us a problem though as we did not use the car. Everything is in walking distance or if not there is always a bus!

This is a highly recommended b&b - 5 star hotel quality at a very affordable price and much more friendly than a big hotel - they only have 5 rooms. Would like to spend longer next time.
