I do not usually leave reviews but I felt I needed to in this case to reverse a terrible injustice. This guest house is a great home from home.... Except the weather was a bit chillier... The owners were fantastic and the home was very comfortable and I felt very safe as I was travelling on my own. I saw... More

I had the pleasure of staying in Garway Lodge for a week in September. I arrived straight from Exeter airport, checked in and off to the hospital to visit my very ill daughter (since recovered). Julia was fantastic, very helpful, great hospitality, magic breakfast. My single en-suite room was comfortable, clean, well stocked, TV and with fast wi-fi. Other guests... More

This was our second stay at Garway Lodge and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the breakfasts superb. Julia and Paul were most helpful and accommodating. The location is very handy with just a short walk into Torquay with its many attractions and amenities. We visit friends in the area every...

I stayed in a single room which was very comfortable and included a user-friendly ensuite bathroom, WiFi and TV. Had I not wanted to see Torbay I could happily have remained in there almost 24 hours a day, only emerging for meals. However, my visit to the area was greatly assisted by the information supplied by the hotelier as well... More

A lovely B&B that has the bonus of allowing dogs to stay. We had a good sized room with bathroom on the ground floor. Hosts are extremely friendly and the breakfast is excellent with several choices available and plenty of home made preserves etc. A small green is handy within a couple of minutes walk of the front door for...

Great B&B. I felt very welcome and felt more like I was staying at a well stocked Friends house. My room was clean and had everything I needed. While I only stayed one night I would definitely go back. Julia was very helpful in preparing our breakfast early, catering for all dietary requirements. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail covers... More

Julia and Paul made me very welcome. My room was clean with a comfortable bed. Everything worked. Plenty of tea and coffee and biscuits. Enjoyed chatting to Julia in the evening after a full day of sightseeing or Agatha Christie related events. Garway Lodge is a comfortable walk from the sea or handy buses.

Another trip to Devon for a week and what a sheer delight to find this dog friendly guest house, well located, just a 20 minute stroll to the seafront & a little further to Torquay harbour & town.
