Totally enjoyed our stay at Ferndale. Welcoming, hospitable and spotless. Short walk to the shops/harbour and well connected bus stop close by. We would certainly stop here again in the future - thanks very much for a memorable weekend, superb breakfasts and great banter!

The Ferndale was all we could ask for from a B&B! The breakfast was excellent. The room was great and we were even surprised how good the linen on the bed etc was...First rate! Would recommend the Ferndale to anyone. The best kept and probably biggest asset by staying at the Ferndale is the Manager's Mother in Law Joan. She kept us in stitches all through breakfast.... She's is definately the Mother in Law to treasure, I believe I even heard the word "buried" at one stage! The Ferndale is clearly a family run business but unlike many you feel as you've been invited into the family home as a guest and the paying is an inconvenience at the end of the stay.....Excellent! Rob, Natalie and Alex. Perth, Western Australia.

Clean, tidy and well-located, Ferndale did the job for a weekend break away. Manager was polite and welcoming and suggested a range of places nearby to visit - very helpful indeed! Decent breakfast at a very reasonable rate. Would definitely recommend!

We are a family of two adults and two smaill children aged 4 and 7. One of the most important things for us in places we stay is the welcome shown to the children and the understanding that they can sometimes be a bit excitable in new places. At Ferndale the children could not have been accepted more.

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly, and would not hesitate to return. It would probably now be our preferred place to stay now in Torquay.

The location was good - quiet yet close to the town centre. Also convenient for the Babbacombe side. There is on site car parking for about hald a dozen cars.

The quality of the establishment was excellent. It had a very fresh feel throughout and was everything was well cared for. The rooms were well appointed. The family room we stayed in was a touch tight for a family of four, but was excellent value for money nonetheless. Being on the ground floor was very convenient.

Breakfast was excellent. A choice of cereal and fresh fruit, the latter including fresh pineapple (sweet as well). Beautiful cooked breakfast.

John and Julie, who run the establishment could not have been better hosts.

Lovely bright clean room. A little on the small side but that was due to my partner being so tall that the proprietor thought he might bump his head in the alternative room! He showed us both options and then let us decide. He was extremely helpful and friendly, and annotated a map of the area for us as soon as we got through the door.

The breakfast which was included in the price of the room was lovely. The location of the hotel was great - on a quiet street and within walking distance of the town centre

We only stopped a single night but have nothing but good things to say about this charming hotel. It's located in a quiet area of Torquay, but still only 10 minutes walk (downhill!) from the harbour. We were able to book over the internet - unlike a lot of hotels in Torquay where you have to call. All the staff were very friendly and the family whose business this is were around to chat over a delicious breakfast.
