Babbacombe Palms Guest House
Ranked #36 of 149 Torquay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stayed here for two nights over Easter. Very welcoming hosts, lovely clean room and the most amazing comfortable bed. En-suite shower and toilet clean but very compact. Excellent breakfast and hosts keen to cater to your taste. Parking on road outside can get busy but spaces in nearby roads. This B&B perfectly suited our needs and would certainly stay again.

Stayed here over the New Year weekend. Had wonderful stay with Mark and Tracy - they couldn't do enough for us! Would definitely stay there again - close to walks/beach/shops. Rooms spotlessly clean and modern. Breakfasts fantastic just like the website picture! Thank you both very much for having us!

I was there with my brother and his wife. We were welcomed with a cup of tea or coffee very welcome after a long journey. The owners were very helpful even offering to take us to where we were going for a meal to fetch us back again. We declined the offer as we were all able to walk.Breakfasts were great too, and mark was happy to serve us drinks when we came bake after our meals.

This was a last minute booking as we waited to see if we could get through the snow to Torquay (for a funeral!) and from the first contact until we departed Mark and Tracy couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They are the new owners of this delightful B&B and have worked hard to update most the rooms (the updating is a 'work in progress'). It is ideally situated to walk around Babbacombe and after a great 'full English breakfast' we took advantage of the sunshine and investigated the area.Mark and Tracy deserve to succeed and we wish them every success.

This B&B is run by a lovely couple. They are very accommodating and friendly. You will immediately feel at ease staying here. The quality of the rooms is astounding. The beds are very comfortable, the internet is fast and the rooms come with a large flatscreen t.v. Would highly recommend to anyone.
