Hi,

We stayed at the Somerville for two nights at the end of June and it is everything that the site and other reviews say it is. I was intially looking at the Grand and other larger hotels, however, I was drawn to the Somerville after reading the very good reviews. They offer a very personal service, lovely, well appointed rooms that larger hotels can not match. The extensive breakfast of fruits, yoghurts, cereals, juices etc, etc (even bubbly) is very well done and their cooked breakfast will set you up for the day and is wonderful. Parking is very good and the location is literally a few minutes walk from the harbour. I am highly recommending the Somerville to friends and family and we will be going back their later in the year.

We were greeted by a very warm reception and luggage taken to our room.

The room was elegant, clean and fully equipped with everything you could need. It is just a short walk from the main town and marina. I couldn't possibly say what I liked best as from going to bed in the most comfortable bed, and being greeted at breakfast with smiles followed by the best breakfast and widest choice you could want. Thank you Adam and Grant for making our stay so special.

My wife and I stayed in the garden suite for three days at the end of June. What a lovely place to spend a few days. A nice seating area away from the bedroom and a delightful bathroom. All that and use of the garden. Well worth a visit.

My husband and I stayed at the Somerville Hotel for 3 days after our wedding and we did not want to leave. The hotel is spotless, the staff and owners are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is superb. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable but it is the little touches at this hotel which make it stand out from the rest. We will certainly be going back.

The best hotel in Torquay in my view. Service is excellent and breakfast fantastic with everything you could want from cereals,fresh fruit and juices, yoghurts and smoothies to locally sourced bacon and sausage. The rooms have that special luxury with feather and down pillows and quilts that you simply sink into and complimentary teas, coffes, water and biscuits. Adam and Grant provide those extra touches which make this a five star experience from beginning to end.
There are cookies available for that midnight snack or mid day hunger pang and luxury shampoos, conditioners, soaps etc. in the large, airy bathroom with power shower.
I have been at Halloween and the decorations are second to none. You have to go just to experience it. Look out for the knitted characters in all of the rooms or treat yourself to one of the even more luxuriuos suites; one of which has been recently refurbished with a lounge area and 2 flat screen TV's.
From the moment you drive up to the Somerville with it's large car park and beautiful gardens you will feel relaxed and ready to enjoy a fantastic break in a fantastic guest house. Torquay itself has something for all ages with theatres, an array of top class places to eat (I particularly recommned 7 Fish Restaurant for that special night out) a bowling alley and pubs and clubs. Or you can just take a stroll along the harbour and watch the boats, fish and seagulls. I just keep returning time and time again to The Sommerville.
