“Fantastic Stay at a Warm, Welcoming & Friendly Guesthouse”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We stayed over the May 2013 bank holiday and could not be happier with our weekend away. Janet & Andrew are friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. They are always around to offer helpful advice and information on the local attractions, restaurants and transport.

We ate breakfast every morning which was delicious. And even though we did not eat an evening meal, the menu looked very good. When we come back next time we will be sure to try Andrew's cooking.

As for the rooms they are large, comfortable and we appointed. Our room had a large en-suite bathroom with shower. The bed was very comfortable and we had 2 great nights of sleep. The whole property is spotlessly clean and has been renovated to a high standard.

Torquay itself is wonderful, we were lucky to have some sunny weather and we visited Paington Zoo and spend the afternoons eating ice-cream and wandering the lovely harbour sides of Torquay, Paignton & Brixham. South Devon really is a beautiful holiday destination and on our next visit to Torquay we will be sure to come back to Abingdon House.

We came down to Torquay for a walking weekend and stayed at the Abingdon. Andrew, Janet and Catherine are a wonderful family who make you feel welcome from the minute you walk ok the door. The rooms are really beautiful and spacious with every facility you could need. The breakfasts are first class and just the ticket for starting off a long day of walking. Torquay and the surrounding areas offer some of the best walking I have experienced. On our return we had a tasty and ample meal that rounded off the day perfectly. I will most definitely return to sample more of the delights Abingdon House and the local area has to offer.

My thanks to Andrew, Janet and Catherine for a wonderful weekend. The experience and commitment that Andrew and Janet give to their hotel really shows. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and comfortable, the food is very good and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you.

A little plug for the local area too. Torbay's coastline is already well known but it has also got plenty to offer walkers of all abilities. The group I was with enjoyed an excellent walk starting at Kingswear, following the Dart to Greenway House and then over to the coastpath including seal watching in the pretty Churston Cove. Andrew also recommended the coastpath section between Kingswear and Brixham so we have got at least one more reason to return. Thanks for your hospitality. We will be back.

After 100 miles of driving along the coast the first thing you hear is would you like some tea and cake. Whilst we unpacked Janet served tea. The house oozes charm and so do Janet and Andrew. The rooms are big, clean, well equiped and charming and the breakfast is great.
I can recommend the Abingdon house to anyone.

Returned for a late break after having a wonderful stay in June. You are greeted very warmly and that nothing is too much trouble. Janet &Andrew go out of their way to make you feel at home. The home cooking is a feature that alone would make you want to return again. Looking forward to next year already.
