“Top B&B in Torquay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to the Cranmore. Fantastic bed & breakfast with excellent hosts Bev & Paul. Being part of a dive group, we love to get out bright & early, this was no problem. Bev & Paul where happy to get up and sort breakfast out extra early, even packing us breakfast to take with us on occasions.
Beautifully presented rooms & immaculate throughout, excellent & warm welcoming hosts. Worth every penny & would HIGHLY recommended to anyone wanting a great B&B in Torquay.
Thank you both for a wonderful stay. See you next year :-)

We were visiting Greenway and decided to spend the night in Torquay. A double cost just £54 (April 2012). It was easy to find the B&B and we parked in the street just round the corner. The room was at the top - no lift, but Paul helped us with the luggages. We had an ensuite room which was compact with nice, new furnishings. We had a fantastic English breakfast the next morning.
From the B&B you can reach the seaside in less than half an hour on foot. I would definitely stay here again.

Paul & Bev run a great little ship here with lots of little extras which make it home from home. A great breakfast set us up for the day. The bus and train connections are just up the road so if you don't fancy the stroll to town, not to worry.

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Cranmore. We really could not have picked a better place to stay in Torquay. Bev and Paul were excellent hosts- incredibly helpful and so welcoming.
We were upgraded to the four poster bedroom on arrival- it was such a nice surprise! The room was deserving of a five star - clean, comfortable, fitted with all amenities and big bay windows that opened up over the street. It was cleaned daily.
Breakfast was delicious. It was a highlight of our day - everything was made fresh to order and we left both mornings feeling very full and satisfied!
The guesthouse is just a short, simple walk to the seafront and the centre of town; the location is also excellent when arriving by train as it is literally a 2 minute walk from the station. Very easy to find!!
Our weekend stay in Torquay was made all the better for our decision to stay at the Cranmore, and we just want to thank Bev & Paul again for such a wonderful two nights!

Arrived early not expecting to check in - simply to let Bev and Paul know we were in Torquay and would return when convenient. However, we were welcomed with open arms and invited to have tea and biscuits while they got our room ready. Everything was just perfect during our three night stay and they were delightful hosts - almost like good friends but careful not to over do it. Will return to Australia with fond memories. Thank you Bev and Paul, having a great stay in a clean and welcoming guest house with a great breakfast makes the visit so enjoyable.

Just returned home after a two night stay at the Cranmore.

Arrived on Friday afternoon to a very warm & friendly welcome which was accompanied by freshly made tea & coffee.

We were shown to our room which was extremely well decorated & very very clean & tidy.

A good deal of money has been spent in making the guesthouse as good as it is. No corners cut anywhere. Exactly as a guesthouse/small hotel should be.,

Breakfast was freshly cooked to order & could not be faulted.

A great place to stay & would recommend the Cranmore to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in Torquay.

Could not find fault at all & would also return for another stay without hesitation.

They have it cracked - keep it simple & keep it friendly.

Thank you for a pleasant stay. We will be back one day.
