Reviewed July 21, 2009

Our 3rd year and as usual we were picked up and dropped off at the station by the owners. The rooms are very nice, spotless bathrooms with regular clean towels and toiletries. An excellent breakfast served in an airy dining room, plenty of choices and personal service at all times. We are looking forward to returning.

The Proprietors Ray and Denise were very helpful and friendly; their guesthouse was spotlessly clean and in a great location for Cornwall ad Devon... Would definately reccommend it and hope to return.

Our stay at the babbacombe palms guest house was excellent, the room was spotlessly clean and the proprieters ray and denise wre very friendly and accomodating, the breakfast was fantastic, the location was perfect just a 2 minute walk to the seafront which has a stunning view.
We will definately be returning again in a couple of months, thanks Ray & Denise for your hospitality and such a great stay.

This was our first trip to Babbacombe Palms - it will not be the last. Ray & Denise make you most welcome and the locality is excellent - a lack of dedicated parking space might influence other peoples' choices. Our stay, although brief, was made all the more acceptable due to a good spell of weather - we wish Ray & Denise every success for the future.

Recently stayed for weekend break at Babbacombe Palms and i am delighted to comment on the excellent accommodation provided by this guest house. The Staff (notably Ray and Denise) provide a welcoming and warm environment and the generously sized breakfasts set you up for the day. The location of Babbacombe Palms is also a huge advantage to this Guest House, ideally situated adjacent to the main road into Torquay which is within walking distance. also situated within 500yds is the famous cliff railway and within 1mile of Babbacombes Model Village. Definately Recommended.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Babbacombe Palms from 30th August to the 6th September. The B & B was clean, tidy, well kept and well decorated. The breakfasts were fantastic and we were made to feel very welcome. Ray and Denise were very helpful and knowledgable about the area and gave us lots of hints and tips that made our stay even more wonderful. The B& B is on the local bus route which is fantasticl as the bus service is excellent - frequent and reliable. The accomodation is close to lots of local attractions, such as the model village, Bygones and the theatre with many excellent restaurants nearby and just a short bus trip to those in Torquay. I would especially recommend the Babbacombe Inn, amazing food.
All in all, we can't fault the place and will certainly return before too long!
