Reviewed September 23, 2012

We recently returned from a 3 night visit at Cary Court.

Not being used to staying in guest houses of this or any other nature, this was a new experience and one which we can genuinely confirm was well worth the visit.

The accommodation is well positioned about a 10-15 minute walk from the main centre of Torquay. The hospitality was first class from our hosts. The grounds are well kept with a tropical feel which must be very pleasant when the sun is out. We did not try out the pool but this is another plus for would be visitors.

Our room was a little dated but nonetheless was comfortable. Although by no means the cheapest accommodation available in the area, we felt it offered reasonable value and would gladly recommend it to anyone.

Just returned from out 6 day break in Torquay. The Cary Court is a wonderful place to stay. Our room was lovely - very comfortable, very clean and very quiet! The house is large and airy with a nice feel, well decorated with period furniture and comfy chairs in the lounge area to snuggle in. The large garden is situated among tropical plants with secluded decked areas to sit in and relax. There is also a good sized heated swimming pool. The breakfasts are excellent.... endless tea/coffee/fruit juice with a large choice of cereals, fruit and yoghurts and an excellent full english that set us up for most of the day. Paul and Linda are wonderful hosts - very cheerful, helpful and approachable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and hope to return one day.

Paul and Linda were great hosts. Polite, attentive and accomodating. The standard of cleanliness in the rooms was superb. The communal areas were homely and well decorated. A special mention has to go to the tropical gardens and superb swimming pool. Which added a touch of luxury to an already superb experience.

There was a good selection for breakfast and all the food was fresh and well cooked. Especially enjoyed the scrambled egg and salmon! Paul and Linda were very accomodating when it came to specific dietary requirements.

the only down side, was the poor wifi reception but that was a small point to the overall positive experience. Would definitely go again, have recommended Cary court hotel to friends and on Facebook.

Thank you Paul & Linda

We recently returned from a 7 night stay at the Cary Court Hotel. Everything about our stay was lovely. We were given a very warm welcome followed by a tour of the house and garden before being shown to our room. Paul and Linda are very knowledgeable about the area and were more than happy to give tips and advice about places to visit - their restaurant recommendations were excellent! Breakfasts were delicious with a good selection available each day. We took advantage of the BYO drinks fridge In the garden room too. It was lovely to sit in the garden which is very secluded from the road and really quiet and peaceful. Overall, we had a lovely week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Cary Court Hotel to anyone looking for somewhere nice to stay in Torquay. If we return to Torquay we definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Aegean Sea room which was on the ground floor and had its own private sitting room...

The hosts Paul and Linda are extremely helpful and friendly, pointing us in the right direction on a number of occasions. I absolutely loved the breakfasts; they were cooked perfectly each time, far better than I am able, and set me up for a good part of the day. We found the house itself very homely indeed; the comfy lounge area leads to the just as relaxing conservatory and then out onto the veranda. From there you overlook the pool and the beautiful, exotically planted garden. The room was very clean and well decorated; the refreshment-tin overflowing with tea and coffee etc, and fresh biccies every day. The bathroom was completely tiled with a very spacious shower cubicle having a superb new shower system.
Cary Court is located well for the harbor, shops and activities. I would recommend The Tudor Rose for an excellent Italian, Legends for a nice Chicken Diane and Thai Star for, well, a Thai meal; all had exquisitely cooked food and great service. We had fun at the Riviera Centre with its flume and wave-machine. A trip to Goodrington sands on the steam train is nice if you are a family with children, an alternative being the delightful Oddicombe beach for those who prefer something more relaxing. Finally, I would say that Kents Cavern, a short walk up Babbacombe Road, is an absolute must. The guide was very approachable, extremely informative and the kids loved him too. The caverns themselves are, for want of a better word, cavernous; only the medically affected should find it even remotely claustrophobic.
All in all, we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cary Court..

Room Tip: The Mediterranean Room was perfect for us.
