                  Heather was very, very friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome, particularly on the Sunday morning whee she really put herself out to help us in a big way. Location is great, very close to centre of Torquay, plenty to see and do in the vicinity. Breakfast was excellent and terrific value for money

                  Friendly welcome, would book to stop there again if I was in the area. Rooms very clean and excellent value for money. Little private car parking although there was very good on street parking outside the hotel. No compaints whatsoever and breakfast was also excellent.

                • Single
                  9.2

                  Extraordinary value for money. Was made to feel very welcome by the Proprieters and very much enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Located reasonably close to town, comfortable and well enough provided, good shower, very relaxed, would thoroughly recommend to other visitors. I was a single traveller (walking the South west Coast Path) using a single room as a base for 3 nights. A hearty well cooked breakfast was provided each morning with plenty of flexibility in choice. For the price, hard to fault and would certainly stay again. Thanks to Heather and Joe.

                  Friendly helpful staff Ideal location for our needs good all round service good breakfast very clean and tidy.

                  If there was one problem, it would be the parking but that apllies to a lot of B & Bs and there was ample street parking depending at what time of arrivel

                  Great b&b in a non-touristy area but close to all amenities. The owners were wonderful and friendly. Full English breakfast offered. The b&b was clean and I would definitely recommend this place. I give it 4 stars out of 5.
