I stay here all the time whilst working in the area, Martyn and Elaine are fantastic hosts with a great knowledge of the local area, The rooms are spotless and the breakfast is freshly made to order and is of high quality. Complimentary coffee and cake on arrival what more could you ask for after a long day at work. Cant wait to return after the summer holidays

Can’t praise this hotel enough!!! Welcomed by Elaine & Martin with Freshman coffee & yummy homemade cake. We stayed in the Penthouse so clean and homely, I loved the toiletries!! Nice surprise in our room a wedding card and champagne from Elaine & Martin. Bed was so comfortable. Oh my god the Breakfast was amazing, all fresh quality produce! Compliments to the chef Elaine!! Hotel has a nice little bar we had a few drinks with Elaine and Martin in the bar, great couple to chat too and just a genuine and warm couple. Martin is the fountain of all knowledge of the area and told of places to visit and where to eat. One good thing to have come out of Covid was us spending our honeymoon in Torquay at the Hillcroft Boutique Hotel. We would have gone to Cyprus if covid had not happened but Torquay is beautiful. Babbacombe was my favourite place, the red sand and views are stunning, We will def return to Torquay and the Hillcroft again

I really enjoyed my 3 night stay at the Hillcroft. It's incredibly clean with good Covid-19 secure measures in place. Elaine and Martyn are incredibly friendly, accommodating and a pleasure to talk to. The breakfast was amazing and there is a cozy bar for drinks. Location is great - only a 5min walk to the seafront. I will certainly revisit on my next trip to Torquay!

We had a lovely stay at the hillcroft, pretty easy to find , had a wonderful room with our own sitting room,four poster bed, and wonderful Indian inspired decor ! It felt very lavish ! Elaine cooks a Wonderful cooked breakfast , and serves a beautiful fresh fruit salad first with a lovely selection of Fruits , Martin is the perfect host/ waiter and makes the best toast !!! A very enjoyable stay , would stay again, wish we’d had longer . If we had to say anything to say , but not a complaint in any way is that the Saniflow loo in our lovely bathroom cud do with a service as we had quite a strong smell from it , but this would not put us off using this room again . An enjoyable stay in lovely Torquay in an exquisite house x

It is a completely new bathroom, so was easily rectified. We hope to see you again sometime, please book direct for the best rates .
