Me my mother and fiancé stayed at the Abbeyfield Hotel from Thursday 28 July to Sunday 31 July and enjoyed every minute. When we arrived Sandra was very warm and welcoming offering us tea, coffee & biscuits in the lounge area whilst running through everything we could see and do in Torquay.
We booked the 2 rooms on the ground floor one single and one double kingsize. Our double room was lovely and clean with a huge kingsize bed, a large walk in shower and lots of attention to detail i.e. a fan, hairdryer, toiletries, a nice selection of tea, coffee and biscuits & even little scissors to open the sachets! There was even a little table outside our room with drinks and snacks you could purchase.
We must say that the breakfast was definitely the best we've had in a guesthouse/hotel in this country. There were bowls of freshly prepared fruit salad, dried fruits, nuts and cereals, activia yoghurts & pouring yoghurts, a mix of exotic fruit juices and local jams. We were also given a choice between a cooked breakfast and continental breakfast. I tried both which were delicious! Also my mother can only eat certain foods due to a recent illness so Jeff & Sandra made sure she had exactly what she wanted.
If you are planning to visit Torquay I would highly recommend this hotel. I really don't think you could get much better for the price, comfort, service and quality. Also Babbacombe beach and Cockington village are definitely worth a visit (if it's not raining!)
Finally I would like say thankyou to to Jeff and Sandra for their looking after us and for posting back my mothers dress she left in the wardrobe a few days later! She said the little note inside made her laugh! :-)
