Dear Petra and Ray,

Your last minute choice brought you to us. You noticed Harmony is different. As so many people did when we were on "Four in a Bed"

We like to be special in many ways. We like you to have a good night sleep and we make our breakfast a "Break Feast". We also like you to be comfortable and feel happy with your stay.

Glad you picked us and hope to see you again soon.

Monika & Hans

We stayed in room 10 for a couple of while scuba diving in the surrounding area. Because we were leaving to go diving early each morning, on arrival we asked if it was possible for them to pack us somthing to take with us. They seemed happy to help and gave us a good selection or food.
The room and whole building was very clean and bright. The room was quite small, but had lots of storage, electrical plug sockets and plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate.

Would stay there again. :-)

You were our first divers and were glad to hear Torquay is a good place for diving. Since we are not divers ourselves it's more difficult to advise people.

If possible we like to pamper our guests and were happy to arrange the packed meals.

Room 10 is not the biggest room we have, although it's very populair with our repeat guests. So next time you come for a few days, give us a ring and we'll set up room 8 as a King Room with plenty of space and a big bed. Not all rooms are the same, therefor we always ask people to ring us beforehand so we can set up the best room for their needs.

Hope to see you soon,
Monika & Hans

We stayed here whilst attending a wedding and turned up much earlier than expected. We were greeted by Hans who was very happy to let us into our room earlier. The room was great, not particularly modern but very clean and tidy with all the necessary items (including hot chocolate and mineral water!) Breakfast the next day was fantastic, a nice room to eat in with a fantastic selection of fruit and breads as well as cereal. The cooked breakfast was amazing and Hans was very attentive without being overbearing.

We are normally regulars at budget hotel chains and this was a change for us - its definitely changed our perspective on small hotels/B and B's and we hope to return very soon!

We're so glad with your last remark, because it hits the nail straight on the head. Unlike budget hotels, a B&B is not just a place to put your head down. It's much more for, if you look at all the costs, only a little bit more money.
We pride ourselves in giving the extra service and personal attention to our guests. You're a guest in our home, not a customer in our business.
Harmony is still in transition to become a modern but comfortable B&B; we've only been in charge for 15 months now. We already did away with the old flowery decor and in the years to come we will change it into what we want it to be.
We do hope you will return one day to see the changes, but mainly because Torquay and Devon have so much to offer.

Hans & Monika were very welcoming and we were made to feel comfortable. They were easy to chat to, the breakfast was lovely and unrestricted. I highly recommend the hotel and the hosts - especially with further improvements to be made.

Room Tip: Plenty of parking and use of the facilities at the larger hotel next door.

We're glad you felt comfortable and welcome. We hope to see you again when you are back on one of your family visits in Torquay. Harmony is still a work in progress but we're happy you like what we've done so far. Accessibility is one of our main priorities and we like our less mobile guests to be able to enter through the front door rather than the side. This autumn we'll replace the door with a more accesible one. We'll keep improving Harmony even in the areas that are OK at the moment. It can always be made better.
See you soon again in Torquay,

Hans & Monika

We stayed for 5 nights in room 9. Clean, lovely place. Lots to choose at breakfast including a vegetarian range , all of high quality well worth getting out of bed. Monica and Hans the owners went out of their way to make you feel at home and relaxed. A delightfull couple. Close to the town and beach, but in a quite location so you had a good night sleep.

A good location for days out to nearby towns and scenery. - Paignton zoo, model village, steam railways, Plymouth and shops.

We will be back to stay at the Harmony again.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room, very quite.

Dan, Beth.
You were lovely guests and we would like to see you back one day. We hope you liked your visit to Paignton Zoo even though the weather was not as good as the day before.
A good night sleep and a perfect breakfast, that's what we like to give our guests, glad you enjoyed that. Next time we also hope we have time for a drink in our bar with you.
So.... see you soon again, we hope.

We love our place too and we love guests like you. Guests that feel like friends. You are more than welcome to stay again. Plymouth is not the end of the world but after a theatre visit you don't want to have to drive back that way. We like to give you the best we have for breakfast and we are glad you think it's worth getting up for. Next time you come, visit our lovely Bar after the show. I'm sure we have the music and ambience to wind down from the theatre and be ready for a good night sleep.
See you again soon,
Monika & Hans
