“Best Guest House we have ever stayed at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2010

The hosts John & Sonia are excellent, nothing is too much trouble, they are very friendly and have a wealth of knowledge about local amenities and attractions which they freely provide. The food is excellent, whether the Devon breakfast or evening meal John is a very good cook. The room was superbly appointed and was always kept in the highest state of cleanliness. Our stay was first class value for money, and the location of the guest house is very close to Torquay sea front. We would not hesitate to return, and will probably do so later this year all being well. Cannot speak highly enough!

My stay at "The Bahamas Hotel" was brilliant. The Hotel was clean, warm. The breakfast was really lovely, and the choice was good.

The bar was open when I returned in the evening.

The proprietors were really friendly and made everyone feel welcome.

I would highly recommend this (and already have) to my family and friends.

On our recent visit to The Bahamas Hotel we found it very enjoyable and great value for money. Situated a 5 minute walk from the beach it was in an ideal location. Staff and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend the hotel without hesitation.
