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.

Dave and Carol provide a perfect experience every time. We have stayed here on several occasions before and they never fail to live up to the great reviews they receive from everyone!

Over the times we have visited I think we've now stayed in all the rooms and each one has its own charm. Everything is so clean and comfortable and you are made to feel absolutely welcome from the moment you arrive. There are little touches everywhere for your comfort.

The little garden is lovely and you can enjoy the lovely variety of plants lovingly nurtured.

The location is great just a short walk from the beach or town, Dave and Carol have lots of knowledge and experience of the local area and will happily offer suggestions and directions for places to go.

The food is exceptionally good, the quality of the breakfast, (products are locally sourced) which is cooked perfectly is far superior to any B&B I have ever experienced.

If you are looking at any stay in the area. I'd strongly recommend this property and its fabulous owners!

Belle Dene Guest House is situated a stone's throw from Paignton Beach, a perfect location to visit the towns and villages and other attractions of Torbay.

When we arrived, we were greeted by Carol and offered tea and coffee and a slice of Dave's delicious fruit cake. A well received gesture!

The free parking at the house was very convenient, and I felt our car was safe whilst we were off exploring.

Carol and Dave have the most inviting oasis of a garden in front of the house, which was perfect to relax in and watch the birds, with many and varied plants.
Our smoker took advantage of this space early in the morning and late evening.

The guest house was very clean, tidy and welcoming. Masks were worn by our hosts and guests. We had the twin room, which was very comfortable, and provided facilities to make hot drinks, dry hair, watch TV and use WiFi. A lovely touch was having a selection of toiletries in the shower room. We were also shown how to use the house keys to come and go when we pleased.

Belle Dene's breakfasts are legendary! Plenty of choice, quality ingredients and beautifully cooked and prepared. Thumbs up to the chef/s! Breakfasts were served in a charming, seaside themed, and spotlessly clean dining room. The dining room could be used to eat any takeaway food guests brought back.

Carol and Dave give very good value for the price, and are friendly and helpful. It was such a treat staying with them! We recommend that you go and stay with them too!

Room Tip: The twin room faces the back of the house. No sea view. But very comfortable.

Just had a great three nights away staying again with Dave and Carol at Belle Dene . It is the perfect place to stay being so close to all the attractions .They are the perfect hosts and the Covid measures were just right.The rooms are always spotless .Their breakfast made with fresh local produce with home made bread , marmalade etc. is one of the best ever . The garden was a delight and still full of blooms , most envious ! Its home from home .

This was my 3rd visit to Belle Dene and each time it has never failed to be anything less than excellent . You walk through the front door and it’s as if a cosy blanket is being wrapped around you . The rooms are spotless and cosy , the dining room is a wonderful reflection of the seaside and the breakfast is excellent in terms of choice and quantity, always more tea and toast on offer 😊. The garden is a relaxing area with so much beauty and colour . I’d strongly recommend a visit 👍👍👍👍

Our stay here was fantastic , the owners Dave and Carol were very friendly , we were greeted when we arrived and nothing was too much trouble for them .
The B&B was clean , immaculate , everything on hand from kettle and drink making facilities to toiletries and hairdryer in room ( even a cute box of hot waters for people to use in hallway )
And to wake up in our beautiful room after a good night sleep to Then have a beautifully cooked Breakfast with so much choice and the home made Bread and jams , the perfect cooked eggs it was lovely.
We sat in the lovely garden surrounded by beautiful flowers and Carol was more than happy to bring us a pot of tea and coffee whilst we enjoyed some quiet downtime.
We have booked to come back and We would recommend anybody to stay here as you certainly would not be disappointed.

Great stay, perfectly clean and tidy everywhere and fabulous breakfast. Best omelettes we have ever had! Hosts were attentive and we were made to feel very welcome. Great location for area with Torquay and Brixham only a short bus ride away at £5 each day rider ticket, meaning we did not use our car whilst staying here. Keep doing what you are doing.... highly recommended and great value for money.

I stayed with Dave and Carol four years ago and was looking forward to coming back. This is an expectional guest house - the rooms are lovely and very comfortable and the breakfast is fabulous with lots of choice of locally sourced and home made products. The location is ideal for the beach and town centre and Dave and Carol are very welcoming and knowledgeable. I'm sure I will be back.

Thanks, It was great to have you and your son as our guests. We are happy that you spent time in and appreciated our lovely garden. A piece of our home made cake and a cuppa amongst the flowers is certainly a nice way to relax after a long journey. We hope that you will come and visit us again soon when you can discover more of what the Bay has to offer. Remember that it is always cheapest to book directly through our own website, or by telephoning us in person Dave and Carol

I stayed here overnight on the way to a caravan holiday so as to go to the zoo before arriving at the caravan park.
The owners were really friendly & helpful.
The property has parking for 7 cars but does involve some double parking. There was free parking on the road from October 1st
We had an attic room which was on the small side as was the bed. The sea was visible from the room.
It was out of peak season but there were several places open for dinner within 5 minutes walk.
Due to the current Covid situation breakfast was booked & ordered the previous evening but was lovely & set us up well for the day.
The room had tea & coffee facilities & bottled water.
Would definitely return here

If you are looking for a lovely guest house in a great location, with a warm welcome, beautifully decorated comfortable rooms and a fabulous breakfast then Belle Dean is the guest house to choose when visiting this area. I have stayed there at least 6 times now and would not stay anywhere else. Carol and Dave have worked very hard to make this a great place to stay with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a great stay. The location is perfect too, a two minute walk to the beach front and within easy reach of all the beautiful local attractions. I cannot rate Belle Dene highly enough!
