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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed at Crowndale for a weekend to celebrate my 60th birthday and had the greatest time. Pat and John supplied us with a beautiful room which was immaculate. They made us feel extremely welcome the moment we walked in, supplied an excellent breakfast, everything in the room you could ever need including a fridge, and was undoubtedly the cleanest, most comfortable and accommodating place we've EVER stayed. Their hard work has created a little gem here, and we were lucky enough to find it! Next time we're away for a lovely break Crowndale will be our FIRST CHOICE. AAAAAAAAAAA+++++++++++++

Fantastic venue and hosts, Pat and John could not have been more obliging. Their attention to detail is second to none - bedroom immaculately presented with lots of extras, including a fridge! A fantastic selection of breakfast items. Free parking on site as well as on road parking. Would definitely recommend a stay when visiting Torquay, very close to walk to local music venue, TQ2 club. Hosts are very friendly and welcome you into their home. Thank you both.

We had an excellent value for money two night stay. Pat and John were perfect hosts and with the help of their daughter, Sarah, looked after us well throughout. Lovely personal touches like fresh milk in the room, breakfast cooked to order with quality ingredients and even a homemade cake each on arrival. They have been running The Crowndale for many years and they really care about the place and their visitors. Located just a short stroll from the main part of Torquay with lots of on street parking we would thoroughly recommend a stay to anyone visiting The English Riviera.
