Tusker Lodge B&B is very close to the centre of Torquay, about a five minute walk, the B&B has twelve rooms, two of these are single rooms, sharing a bathroom, they are basic, but fine for a single guest, parking is no problem, breakfast very good, I have recommended to friends.

Really nice room with the most comfortable bed ever. We were made to feel very welcome from our arrival. Wish we'd stayed a bit longer. Breakfast was fantastic. Definitely one of the nicer guest houses and close to all Torquay has to offer.
