“Great place to stay in Torquay”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have just stayed here for 4 nights and had a brilliant break. 74 Belgravia is excellent. We would recommend it to anyone. The rooms are so clean with fresh white quilts, pillows and sheets. The bathroom is modern and spotless with towels changed daily. There is plenty of complimentary shampoo and soap plus tea, coffee, milk, kettle and tv. We travel regularly and are fussy about cleanliness so this was right up our street. Trevor, the owner, is so helpful and attentive. He makes a great breakfast too. The location is ideal; a short stroll to the beach and the Marina. Thank you Trevor for a great stay!

I travel frequently with my job and have stayed in hundreds of different hotels and guest houses around the world, many 5 star and designer Boutique style. Having just returned from two nights at 74 Belgravia it is most definitely up there among the best, spotlessly clean, wonderful breakfast and very comfy bed. Trevor the owner is a great host and nothing is too much trouble. Great location too with an easy stroll into town and the beach, we will be back and will be recommending this place to very everyone.

when we arrived we were shown to our lovely room which was upgraded at no extra cost to us as I am disabled and Trevor thought it would be better for us. Very kind I thought. Bed wonderful, comfortable sleep which was great refreshed the next morning. Breakfast plentiful as much as you wanted a wide range of cereals to choose from and the usual jam and marmalades.
We went on our way, but on return we were very displeased to see the bed had not been made or the bathroom cleaned. We had the same damp towels for the whole 5 days as there was no where to dry them so we thought that they would have been changed. I tried to put the radiator on the 1st night as I was cold and to dry the towels for the next day.

Trevor D, Owner at 74Belgravia, responded to this review, July 2, 2013
We take any criticism to heart and so feel the need to respond. We have notices in bathrooms which state "We are eco friendly and TOWELS PLACED IN SHOWER WILL BE EXCHANGED BUT TOWELS LEFT ON RAILS WILL NOT". These guests stayed for 4 nights and always put their towels neatly on the rails or radiators and did not request fresh towels. Rooms and bathrooms are checked daily but we obviously fell short of expectations on this occasion and will learn from this.
We want guests to feel at home and do not interfere with their belongings or personal space but there is a balance to be struck. The main message to guests is please complain at the time if unhappy with our service and we will not be offended but will put it right.

My fiancé and I have just returned from a weekend break at the Belgravia and you cannot fault this B&B. The owner Trevor is so welcoming and easy to talk to. Our room was light and airy and so clean. The location is great only about a 10 min walk if that to the beach and shops. The breakfast is lovely and fills you up until lunch. Have already booked our long weekend back here in August and I cannot wait to visit the Belgravia again and to see beautiful Devon once more. John and Annie

We have just come back from staying at 74belgravia for a long weekend, we have stayed at b&b s before and this is the best by far, the rooms are all very clean and comfortable. It is within a short walk of the beach area and town with lots of bars and restaurants around, the breakfast in the morning was lovely and your host Trevor is very friendly and helpful, me and my husband will be returning to the belgravia as it was an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 at the back of the building and was very peaceful

My partner and I have just spent a couple of nights at 74 Belgravia,we were so very lucky with the weather and choice of B & B. At first I was not impressed with having to pay up front before we had even seen the room but in this case it was fine as the room was beautiful and very clean and a lovely comfortable bed. We had a tasty breakfast cooked and served by Trevor our friendly host, very nice man. We enjoyed the short stroll to the sea front and town, with plenty of good restaurants, Bianco's is excellent if you enjoy Italian food. Plenty of local buses to take you to surrounding areas, try the bus trip to Brixham and return by ferry. I would definitely visit Torquay again and would love to stay again at the Belgravia.

Together with my wife and our 20month old son stayed for 2 nights. This stay completely changed our perception of guest houses.

The decor is just fantastic, you can see that the colour coordination and the decor have been well thought through.
The staff were extremely attentive a d friendly.
The house is extremely clean and they have taken all the health and safety measures.

We parked the car at the hotel and was able to walk to town, the beach and harbour and close to restaurants. The location is perfect.

Breakfast was excellent too.
