Great hotel, Dave and Claire were fantastic hosts, could not do enough for us. Excellent breakfasts with the option for home cooked evening meals.

Nice rooms and good location for walking into Torquay and exploring the area.

Would recommend this hotel.

Stayed: September 2017, traveled with family

This was our first stay at Mount Edgcombe after having our annual 4 night stay in Torquay at another hotel which we thought was 100%. On recommendation and due to circumstances we booked at Mount Edgcombe with a little trepidation. We need not have worried, it far exceeded our previous hotel so where do you find an excellent + rating! We are not very good with adjectives so if anyone is reading this review for recommendation just book your stay, you will not regret it. We will be back next year. Dave and Claire, thanks again for your superb hospitality.

From the moment you arrive you can't help but be impressed with the warm welcome from Dave & Claire. They really are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they really go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. Everywhere in the hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are exceptionally comfortable.
At breakfast you are greeted with Claire's happy approach while Dave cooks in the kitchen. You will go far to find a better breakfast with the choice and quality. In the evening the roles are reversed with Claire cooking and Dave front of house. Once again the choice and quality are excellent.
This has been our 4th visit and the next are already planned.

Hello DandGT
Thank you for the great review - It was so lovey to see for the 4th time, we LOVE having you both stay, and have such fun and laughter when you are here. Once again you picked the good weather and made the most of your time here - you guys walked for miles, I think that you went home for a rest!
Take care and we look forward to seeing you for stay 'number 5' in April 18.
Regards to Edd & L Edd
Best Wishes

Hi there
Thank you for the review - you are very kind, we loved the fact that you likened us to your ' holiday parents' we do try to ensure that everyone has a great stay.
Our Edgcombe Suite bathroom is 'awesome' to use your words and we look forward to you coming back for a second visit.
We do hope that you enjoyed your holiday in Cornwall after you left us, and thank you both for the card.
Kind regards
Dave & Claire

Just had our yearly 4 day stay with Dave & Claire and once again we had a wonderful time. We always look forward to spending time with them as nothing's too much trouble and they are just good fun, but very professional. The home cooked breakfast by Dave and the evening meals by Claire were absolutely delicious. Plus, a clean and comfortable room what more do you want. Always happy to recommend this brilliant establishment and cannot wait until our next stay.

Room Tip: All good rooms, but we stayed in Room 2 (large room, large bed, nice furnishings, ground floor).
