Manju and Raj welcome to you the Ravenswood, centrally located only 400 metres from Torquay harbour and town centre. We are a B&B, offering clean, good value, non-smoking accommodation, plus an excellent breakfast, served in the dining room, with views over Torwood Gardens. The location of the Ravenswood Hotel is very central, being adjacent to Torquay Museum and on the Agatha Christie Mile. A short walk of 400 metres takes you to the harbour, with its boats, restaurants, shops and Pavilion, or to the central shopping area in Fleet Street and Torquay's nightlife and theatres. Also within a 400 metre radius are over 30 pubs, cafes and restaurants, so you will be spoilt for choice when selecting something to eat. Torquay's blue flag award beaches are but a short walk away, and for the energetic, the south west coast path is a great place to walk and take in the scenery.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best b and b round Torquay. Me and my partner could not be happier where we stayed. Amazing breakfast, amazing staff which were very welcoming and we are so happy we booked here this year and have booked for next year! I wish we could score a 10!! Brilliant. They went the extra mile just to drop me and my other half to the train station to go home which was very appreciated and we are so grateful for everything they have done for us! Thank you! Sam and Alison

The Ravenswood Hotel is in a great location close to the harbour and shops. The room we had booked was the cheap economy room which is well decorated and clean, however the room was very compact. The en-suite was very small and compact. It was very difficult to use the toilet as we kept knocking our knees on the wall! There is no sink to wash your hands in the toilet so you had to come back out into the bedroom and wash your hands which I felt was very unhygienic. However the service was amazing. There is very little parking by the hotel but more parking available 300yrds away. The parking is free with the permit given. The noise of the seagulls through the night made it very difficult to sleep.

Owners very friendly and welcoming, (even just small simple things as carrying your suitcase to room appreciated), free car parking, room was on small side but very clean actually spotless, fine for myself and hubby as we don’t spend time in room, all you need is a bed and bathroom, tea and coffee facilities in room as well as tv, close to town centre , would definitely recommend and will definitely be going back soon x

The B and B is spotless and I mean spotless. The breakfast had everything - nothing was too much trouble for the owners they were so lovely. On the booking form my son had put down the special occasion and when we got into our room we had card, balloons etc all provided by the owners. What a lovely surprise. We had car parking and even though our room was smallish it was lovely and had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend a stay

Great location, with lots to do nearby. Really friendly owners and great breakfast as well as catering to allergens. Very welcoming people. Only criticism would be the Wi-Fi as it was a bit poor but everything else was absolutely fantastic, well worth the money.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights last week in room 4. Free parking, lovely large and very clean room, daily cleaning and a short walk to the harbour. Raj and Manju were the perfect hosts and very attentive from start to finish. Breakfast was lovely, even though we had been to Torquay many times before there is lots of tourist info at the desk for places to visit if you need some inspiration... my wife asked for some Soy Sauce at one point which they didn't have and then the very next day they brought out a bottle of it for her. Working in the hospitality industry myself, its good to see great attentive service. Will definitely be back again!
