“Excellent affordable place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I stayed here for one night and had a small suite and it was fantastic. Very friendly, clean and comfortable, when you look at some of the tired accommodation in this town i think this was a winner. I would highly recommend this for comfort and value. I shall be staying here again.

If you do stay try the food from Bombay express down the road, i ordered online and had it delivered, it was the most efficient web site, great value and the food was fantastic.

Room Tip: Book room 7

We stayed here for a weekend at the beginning of December 2012. The lovely room was tastefully decorated to a high standard, was a good size and everything we could want had been provided. The weekend stay was a restful one and the friendly owners are thoughtful and helpful. Breakfast was a meal to be savoured too! We would certainly choose to stay here again.

Only stayed here for a saturday night. Hotel was very clean and the Large bedroom with nice touches, such as fresh milk in the minibar and a good size bathroom, ensured it 5star atmosphere. It's in a good location about 10 minutes walk inland from the beach, which means you're in a quieter area. Breakfast was excellent and the service friendly. Overall a good value 5 star hotel worthy of its acolades. Our only gripe was that we found the mattress in our room a little soft but that is a personal choice. I'm sure if we were staying longer the owners would have had the opportunity to resolve this. But as we only stayed one night there was little point.
We're back in Torquay end of March and will be booking again.

This B&B has a 5* rating, but deserves a 6*. It is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and in a good position. The owners, Beryl and James can't do enough for you. The breakfast was the best we have had anywhere, including top hotels around the world.

We will certainly be going again.

Room Tip: No tips, all seemed quiet and no complaints from anyone.

Decided on a few days away before I started my new job and whilst I would normally try and stay in a sea front hotel, I had seen poor reviews of these and better for the B & Bs instead. We were given room 2 on the ground room which is great is climbing stairs are a problem. Wet room style bathroom and a sitting room with separate bedroom. Loads of space and best of all a mirror with a light for putting on make up (yes this was a + for me) oh and decent hair dryer.
Fresh milk in the fridge was a nice touch, plus bath robes.
Breakfast was excellent and a wide range if choice and cooked to order.
Points of reference - 20 minute work to the town, so be warned. However it just costs £5 for a return taxi. Suggest the hosts (who took over 7 months ago) find out from other B&B owners about restaurants so they can advise for their guests, but I am being picky. Finally if you stay in room 2, put on the heated towel rail before you want to spend time in the room. For me it was cold, but the weather was freezing outside and it is an extension with a flat roof, so it may be it cools down faster in winter.
Overall I would go back as the hosts were lovely and they have a great place.

Room Tip: Room 2 if you are less mobile

This B&B is wonderful. The hosts are so welcoming and friendly. The room had everything we could possibly need...a large comfy bed, a fridge, tea&coffee facilities, a nice bathroom and shower, decent size wardrobe, TV, plenty of mirrors and plugs... and very clean and bright, it looked newly decorated. The breakfast options were great too; cereals, museli, fresh fruit, yoghurts, plus all the hot cooked ingredients you'd expect. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts and we really enjoyed our stay.

My partner and I stayed here February 2012 for two nights (A Christmas gift from my parents in law). We stayed over on the Friday and Saturday night.

WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! It was truly Amazing!!

The room itself was absolutely stunning. A definite 5 star and more!!

The bed was the biggest most comfiest bed we had ever had the pleasure of sleeping in. The room was decorated beautifully it was so breathe taking just to look at, it was Classic.

The room has everything you need - Robes, dressing table, television, separate lounge with second t.v, all tea and coffee facilities, fridge and DVDs. The bathroom was lovely too with a bath and shower. Sorry I cant remember which room we stayed in.

Breakfast in the morning was delicious, so much on offer! The best scrambled eggs I have ever tried! How do they do it?!?

The whole weekend was pure luxury, we were in Heaven the whole weekend and wish we could of stayed forever.

The owners were lovely, attentive and could answer many questioned on things to do and see in the surrounding area.

Thank you, We cannot wait to come back to this wonderful place.

I hope you enjoy my photos.
