When we arrived at the guest house we were greeted with a warm & welcoming smile. The building itself was inviting as it was clean and well kept. The foyer was well stocked with tourist info leaflets etc showing that there was alot to do and see.
The room was clean and cosy with all you would need for a short break. Breakfast was preseneted well and was delicious on both mornings. Evening meals are available on request and judging by the breakfast we missed a treat.
All in all a most excellant stay.

We stayed for two weeks in the Babbacombe Guest House and the owners, Pauline & Tony, made our stay a pleasure, nothing was too much trouble. We were collected at Torquay Station and driven to the Guest House by Tony. A kettle, coffee, tea, biscuits, milk and sugar were supplied. The Room was cleaned every day, towels and bed sheets were changed daily. Meals were very good and plentiful. If you wanted to know anything about the area Pauline went out her way to answer the query. At the end of our holiday Tony drove us back to the station. All-in-all a very relaxing holiday and we would recommend it to anyone.

Tony and pauline made us feel very welcome as soon as we walked in the door. the family room was spotlessly clean. En-suite WC again very clean with lots of clean towels.
The breakfast we had was superb, a full english with as much tea or coffe as we liked. Tony then gave us tips on places to visit and to eat and he came up trumps on most occasions.
All in all we had a lovely time and would recomend tony and pauline as perfect hosts.

We would definitely recommend Babbacombe Guest House to others. It's comfortable, spotlessly clean, Pauline does a great breakfast and what's more Pauline and Tony are really nice people. They couldn't have done more for us. By the way, we are both vegetarians and can recommend to other veggies that you can get a good cooked breakfast if you want it (prepared in veg oil) or plenty of fruit, yoghurt, cereal if you don't.The only danger is that Pauline's cooked breakfast is so nice, you'll eat it every day and go home with expanded waistlines! We want definitely to come back again!

This is the first time that we have stayed in a guest house for many years and were pleasantly surprised. From the off road parking and the clean, modern rooms through to the delightful breakfast, the Babbacombe represents good value for money and a perfect base to explore that part of the British coast.
It is on a main road which can be slightly noisy but also means that there is a bus stop just outside to get down to Torquay and also means that it is easily accessible.
Will definitely go back if we are in the area.
