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.

A comfortable and modern bed and breakfast run by a very friendly couple, situated in a great location in Torquay. The breakfast’s are exceptional. Whether your ordering a full English , an omelette or cheese on toast they are very accommodating to whatever you want. The rooms are very comfortable and would highly recommend staying here.

We have been going to Torquay-Devon for the last 10 years. However this was our first time staying in Torquay as a sleepover as we normally stayed in Devon district as our sleepover. We booked a stay in the Patricia for 5 days and im so happy we did. When you arrive you are welcomed by Joe and Lilly who are wonderful hosts to say the least. The rooms and hotel are always clean and bed linen smell like they have just come out of the washing machine....Super fresh. Rooms are a wondereful size and ammenities in the rooms themselves are perfect. But most importantly for me was the breakfast. I enjoyed it so much i had one every day. Joe and lily are wonderful hosts and can't do anymore for you. This will now be our new place to stay when we go back every year. Joe and lily thank you so much for being wonderful hosts.

Joe and Lilly really make this booking they are so friendly and accomadating. They will tailor your breakfast from omelette to well done bacon. The rooms are kept so clean and if there even is a little rain there are umbrellas provided for your walks. The hotel even provide additional amenities on the landing such as coffee, milk and toilet roll to help yourself. Nothing is too much for Joe and Lilly they even have an iron and ironing board at hand. The area has everything beach down the road, arcade, bowling, pubs and nightlife there is a bit of everything for everyone all in walking distance. The bus stops right outside the hotel its 12.00 for 5 on the bus for a day pass and 6 each on the train which also passes the hotel. Planning on the cheap there is a kebab shop, bakery and pizza place and your convenience store for beer or snacks.

I cannot find fault The Patricia at all. Having stayed attached fair share of B&Bs and hotels I have to say that this venue is one of the best and well run I’ve been too in the UK. Lilly and Joe are friendly and gave us a warm welcome on arrival. We stayed in one of the first floor double rooms an and our kids stayed in a twin on the same floor. Both rooms were clean and tastefully decorated with spotless and well functioning en-suite shower rooms. Complete with tea facilities and complimentary water. Beds are comfortable with decent bedding and pillows. There is a communal roof terrace that is private and can become a bit of a sun trap. Breakfast was fantastic and well cooked with a choice of full English cooked by Joe and toast and cereal stations. Make sure you have a coffee in the morning also. A short walk will take you the beach front, Torre Abbey and grounds, park and Torquay station. Will definitely be staying again when we can get away. Thank you Lilly and show and keep up the good work.

This was our first trip to Torquay and we are pleased to have chosen The Patricia as our base. Its location was ideal - 10 min walk to the seafront, 5 mins to the Abbey and approximately 15 min walk to the train station. We had an exceptional stay at The Patricia. The owners, Liliya and Joe, were fantastic hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible: it really feels like a home from home. The delectable full English breakfast was the ideal start to the day: fresh fruit salad included! There was plenty of choice for breakfast (fruit, toast, cereals, cooked breakfast) something for everyone! The entire B&B was spotless. Rooms were recently refurbished and had crisp linen and clean towels with the added touches of toiletries and additional supplies outside in the corridors. Liliya and Joe made our stay very comfortable and made a conscious effort to help us make the most of our visit. We are very excited to go back to Torquay and especially to stay at The Patricia. If you’re still wondering whether to book, do not waste another moment - got for it!

Please ignore the old photos “ The Patricia “ has new owners and the rooms have been redecorated and refurbished where needed. I have family in Torquay and visit often staying at various B&B’s and hotels but this is by far the best. The new owners Joe & Liliya are very pleasant and know exactly how to run a B&B, in my opinion there are personal touches you just don’t find in other B&B’s in the area. The fresh fruit platter on our breakfast table each morning, was really nice to pick at while waiting for our full English, the teddy blanket on the bed which was wonderful to snuggle under while watching the tv (which had plenty of channels). Extra tea coffee sugar milk and toilet rolls left in the corridor outside our door, decent size cups in the room, plenty of hot water etc etc the room, linen, everything was spotlessly clean. The pub over the road provides a decent menu and there are a few shops close by for papers, soft drinks etc a short walk down the road will lead your to the main shops and beach. I would highly recommend the Patricia B&B to anyone who is confused as to where to stay in Torquay as there are so many to choose from ….this one is super special …………. Thank you Joe & Liliya see you again soon😀.

My sister and I visited family in Torquay and we booked 2 nights at the Patricia. Joe and Liliya gave us a wonderful welcome and we knew we were in very good hands. The Patricia is spotlessly clean and the rooms very very comfortable with nice touches. Nothing is too much trouble and Joe and Liliya both go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. The breakfast each morning was superb and beautifully presented with some lovely touches such as a fresh fruit platter on our table when we came down. The orange juice was lovely and not watered down as in some places and you can help yourself to cereal toast and milk etc. Liliya and Joe made sure we had everything we needed and that our comfort was important to them. We have stayed at many places in Torquay over the years and this one is by far the best. When owners make the effort and are pleasing it really makes you feel special and I cannot recommend this place enough. We were sorry to leave and look forward to when we can return as this will be our first choice when we come back for a visit. Do not hesitate to book this wonderful B& B it is very well managed and is situated perfectly for access to the beach and facilities etc.
