“A Great Find”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We were so lucky to pick the Charterhouse (recommended to us by a local). Not only were the beds so comfortable and the breakfasts fantastic, but the welcome was out of this world. Marion and Les are the perfect hosts and made our short stay seem not nearly long enough.

Our first stay at Charterhouse was in September of last year (2013), it was so comfortable that we just had to return. Again we had a marvellous time and the service was as good as before. Marion and Les do everything they can to ensure that guests have a pleasant stay. Breakfast is a tour de force and the locally produced bacon, sausages and eggs must be sampled or you will be missing out. Les makes his own preserves and bakes several kinds of bread. Try them you won't be sorry.

Marion and Les are very caring genuine hosts.Their hotel is always spotlessly clean.We have stayed with them a number of times now and never failed to be impressed. The breakfast is excellent so tasty, and Les,s lovely breads jams and special marmalades.It,s only a few minutes away from the sea front and a good bus service, and within walking distance of Torquay. Just can,t write too highly of Marion and Les, they will help you all they can during your stay.

Room Tip: We think all the rooms are lovely at the Charterhouse. We choose the big garden room because we have...

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely one night stay at the Charterhouse Torquay. Because of a family emergency, our original hotel cancelled our reservation but upon calling Marion, she was able to fit us in and help with our tight schedule for traveling thru Devon. The room was lovely and had a partial view of the water! The en suite was clean and new and had everything we needed. Marion was wonderful; she gave us directions for getting to the sights, and even called in a dinner reservation for us at the wonderful Number 7 Fish House. The next morning we enjoyed the fabulous breakfast (including Les' freshly baked bread), and went for a walk into Cockington which was delightful. The next time we visit England, we will be sure to make more time to stay longer at the Charterhouse in Torquay!

Room Tip: Room 15 has a partial sea view!

Rosie and Jim accommodation was very clean, Bed was comfortable ,nice room with sea view. Hosts made you feel very welcome and always helpful. Marion's breakfasts were excellent and les' bread and preserves were first class. we would recommend the charterhouse to anyone and if we are in the area again we would love to stay again. easy to park on site and accommodation was very quiet Lots of things to see in the area and on a good bus route with buses every ten minutes or so.

Room Tip: We had room fourteen quiet sea and garden views very nice.

Accommodation was clean, comfortable and offered everything we needed, including good parking onsite. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful and went well beyond our expectations. The breakfast was excellent with home made bread and preserves on offer along with a very well cooked breakfast buffet. Location was ideal, just a short walk to the sea front and within walking distance to Torquay. Also with good bus routes available to go further afield in both directions, so you can easily leave the car behind and go out for a meal etc. We will definitely return without hesitation. Thank you to Marion and Les for a wonderful stay.
