“A very Welcoming and Enjoyable, Comfortable stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Stayed here May'2013 for six nights. On arrival was greeted with Tea or Coffee and then shown to our room.

The Hotel is very well situated in a quiet area in easy walking distance of the Babbacombe Downs and Oddicombe area's for Beaches, Great Views, places to eat and drink Ect... There is a nearby Bus Route for Torquay.

You are provided with your room key and a key to the street door so you can just roll in at anytime.

Our Room was cleaned on a daily basis and always had a lovely fresh smell within with clean towels and tea and coffee re-blemished, our Breakfast requirements was taken on arrival and adjusted throughout the week and was cooked to a high standard, one of the things we both noted was the quality of the sausages and eggs and bacon of fresh farm produce, rather than supermarket standard and full of flavour!

We very much enjoyed our stay and will be returning in the future, Thank you.

We visited the Babbacombe palms 10 years ago, my parents live in Babbacombe so it's not often we need to stay elsewhere, when we stayed in 2003 mum and dad were full so mum booked us in here we had a very good experience then, so when we needed to find a B&B this weekend to come and visit for Dads 80th birthday we booked the palms without thinking. We are so glad we did, under new ownership the place has been improved to very high standard, the room was lovely freshly decorated and spotlessly clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Mark and Tracy are excellent hosts who put themselves out to ensure you have everything you need, the breakfasts were spot on excellently cooked by Mark , piping hot with as much tea, coffee ,juice and toast as you can manage. The Babbacombe palms is perfectly situated for babbacombe shops and St Marychurch shops, the babbacombe downs where there are excellent bars serving meals at reasonable prices.The nearby cliff railway takes you down to the lovely beach.
Next time we need a place to stay in Babbacombe we will be back here, have recommended it to family and friends already and we just got home!! Thank you for a lovely experience Mark and Tracy we wish you well you deserve it

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.
