Thank you for your review hilary, pleased to know you were happy with your stay at Arran Lodge. It was lovely to hear about your trip down memory lane, visiting your childhood home, and that it was a great success, and even if you don't visit again because you now live abroad, I will have fond memories of meeting you, your son and daughter-in-law.

Would recommend Arran Lodge to everyone. Wonderful hosts, who go out of their way to ensure their guests have everything they could possibly need. Joanne provided us with lots of information regarding places to visit and things to see. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The attention to detail, eg, a supply of dvd's in each room, was far in excess of most large hotels. Delicious breakfasts, cooked to perfection, with as little or as much as we wanted - with an endless supply of tea! Location: about 10 minutes walk from the sea front. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Just spent a lovely long weekend at The Arran Lodge, the room was very comfortable and immaculately clean.
The breakfast was proper old English with local products cooked to a tee!
Mick & Joanne the hosts had us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
I would recomend this B&B for anyone wanting to stay in Torquay.

I would recommend Arran Lodge to anyone. Jo will always walk the extra mile to make things great for you - she even produced vegetarian sausages at the drop of a hat! The first floor single ensuite was spotless and very comfortable.
I came to attend a Toastmasters Conference and Speech Contest at the Riviera Centre and left a prize winner. So if you are going to Torquay and want to be a winner stay here! All the best from AndrewB

My husband and I wanted to treat ourselves and our 2 year old daughter to a trip away for this Easter weekend, and from a recommendation from a family friend stayed at the Arran Lodge in Torquay. We weren't expecting to be laying on the beach after looking at the Easter weather forecast this year but it ended up being gloriously sunny for most of the weekend! We loved every minute of our stay at the Arran Lodge, we checked into the downstairs family room to find complimentary easter eggs in our room- such a lovely touch. Just after we checked in, Jo made us a nice hot pot of tea and toasted hot cross buns, gave our daughter an Easter colouring sheet, and made us feel right at home. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean, really comfy beds and a nice little private outdoor patio. Despite the cold weather, we had a fantastic weekend exploring Torquay and we are already planning to come back in the summer.
