“Hotel nice”
Reviewed February 20, 2009

This was a nice place to stay but found keith and sandra to be a bit intrusive also was very upset when we had a shower and went out and come back to SAME towles put to dry for us to use again. This put me off wanting to go back to this hotel as think clean towels are not a lot to ask for.

our 4th visit in 2 years, always a warm friendly welcome. Hotel is always clean & tidy, and the breakfast is 'out of this world'
Keith & Sandra make every guest feel special and most welcome.
This is our home from home in Torquay.

We booked our stay following the reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. We decided to have superior room 9 and it was wonderful; peaceful and elegant decor, spotlessly clean throughout including the lovely, modern en-suite. There was a full sized TV and plenty of tea, coffee, soup, water and biscuits to keep us going. The view from our room and the dining room across the green was stunning on the sunny mornings. The location was perfect with plenty of parking and just a pleasant 5 minutes to the seafront.

Sandra and Keith really gave us the best welcome ever and couldn't have been more helpful with their tips on the best places to visit and where to eat. Sandra's breakfasts were absolutely delicious and my fussy vegetarian diet was catered for - check out the veggie sausages! My partner enjoyed his beautifully cooked full English too and it was all washed down with lashings of fresh tea and coffee served by the very cheerful Keith.

We had such a relaxing time in Torquay that we can't wait to go back and we'll definitely be making the wonderful Avenue Park our choice in future.

  • Liked — Sandra and Keith, the gorgeous breakfasts, how spotlessly clean and comfortable it was, the location etc!
  • Disliked — Nothing at all!

We arrived at Avenue Park Guest House to find the house being in a lovely elevated position. On entering we were warmly greeted shown to our room which as experienced worldly travellers we can highly recommend that you could not fault this guest house for its great for value, home from home luxuries nice and quiet location we walked five minutes to the beach five minutes to the local park for anyone coming with families a swimming pool complex just around the corner. We noticed that there was busses around the corner which went to all the local spots which could all be accessed easily for day trips. Breakfast was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We have travelled to many five star hotels around the world all we can say is that many people go through many reviews looking for the right place with the right attitude and the right location. Can I just say is that we have done your homework for you all you need to do is just book and enjoy your stay in Torquay. p.s. don't forget we went in November; what this looks like in the summer must be fantastic.

We cannot recommend this guest house highly enough. Everything about it was perfect and for a very reasonable price.

On our arrival we were welcomed in by the owners Keith and Sandra, who immediately knew who we were, how we paid, how long we were staying etc - such a nice change from other establishments where this level of organisation is not in place.

Our room was very nicely decorated (not over powering, yet not bland), very cleverly laid out so that best use was made of the space, allowing comfortable use of all the storage space, furniture etc. Our room and bathroom (and indeed the rest of the premises) was 100% spotless. We have never come across such attention to detail in regards to ensuring cleanliness, I don't think there was a single speck of dust in the place!

The guesthouse is in a really great location - very close to both the railway station and the sea front, plenty of nice restaurants and pubs, and only a stone's throw from Torre Abbey. Keith and Sandra were always on hand to help us plan out our excursions to various places further out such as Paignton Zoo, The Hedgehog hospital, etc,

When arriving home from a nice holiday, its always hard to go back to having to make your own breakfast again! This was very true of our stay in Avenue Park - very tasty full cooked breakfast every morning, cooked to order. Not only that but they very kindly provided lactose free milk/soya milk, which was very helpful.

We had a really lovely time, and genuinely intend to stay in Avenue Park again if we make it back to Torquay in summer 2009.

Avenue Park Guest House was a very inviting B&B - the rooms were very nicely decorated and quiet, the breakfast was great and the hosts, Sandra and Keith, were very attentive to our needs and full of local information. We arrived with a large group and almost had the whole place to ourselves which we thought might be a bit daunting for the owners, however nothing was a problem.
The Guest House is a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Torquay. The seaside is only 5 mins at the end of the road, but we didn't think this beach was so great so we drove to a nice beach about ten mins south of Torquay.
I would recommend this B&B to couples or families (we had both). Excellent value for money.

Avenue Park Guest House,Torquay. We stayed for a short break over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Keith and Sandra were very welcoming when we arrived. Room was spotless and very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful, really missed it when i got home! Everything was within walking distance. Would recommend this lovely guest house and hope to return one day. Di Newman,Northants
