We were fortunate to stay here for two nights at short notice just before the November lock-down. Our room and the rest of the property were spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, and in excellent condition. The room was quiet and the bed very comfortable. The views from our Bay View bedroom and balcony are stunning. Hosts Nathalie and Hervé have a background running very successful London restaurants for more than 25 years; their decades of experience in hospitality and Hervé's skills as a top chef are now entirely focused on running a superb three-roomed B&B and preparing the most wonderful breakfasts. Five stars does not begin to reflect the experience of staying here or the quality of the cooking. Parking is available for each guest room, an important feature in Brixham. The wonderful elevated views of Brixham mean a short walk uphill after trips to explore the harbour and surrounds. There is easy access to the South Devon Coastal Path. Beacon House cannot be faulted and we highly recommend a stay here.

Dear Mark & Anne-Marie Thank you very much for your nice comments, it feels good to have some guests who appreciated our efforts. We are going to redecorate all the bathrooms this winter, so next season, the house will look even better. We hope to see you again, it was a pleasure to host you. Kind Regards Hervé & Nathalie

Property's Favourite Review
I look forward to returning one day to this fine establishment, run so brilliantly and with so much pride and professionalism by Hervé and Nathalie. Such a wonderful and warm couple. Just glance at the below reviews and they are all consistently saying how good this place is. All I can add really is DITTO, check out their website and book! This is a quality B&B, a real home from home and perfectly located for exploring Brixham on foot and surrounding beautiful areas by car. Free off street parking is a big plus. The breakfast was a further surprise, I honestly have never had such an incredible breakfast experience in a B&B. Top marks all round. This place sets the bar for their peers to aspire to. It was a privilege to stay for 3 nights and be so wonderfully well looked after. Many thanks. 👏👏👏👏👏❤️❤️❤️❤️

Dear Jonathan It was a real pleasure to serve you and your friend, Nathalie was thrilled when she knew that you had noticed the flowers in your bedroom, we take care of many little details which I think are important, and we are very pleased when the customer notice them. Regarding the breakfast, well, cooking was my job for many years, it is now my hobby. Kind Regards Hervé

We stayed for 2 nights in Marina View. The car park is a brilliant asset to the property. Well located, only a short walk into town. The breakfast was excellent. Lovely place to enjoy great views. Would recommend without hesitation.

From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed at this beautiful B&B ran by Herve & Nathalie. We received a lovely welcome drink before making our way to the top floor Bay View room. The view was incredible and having arrived to the sunshine we sat on the balcony and took it all in (the Marina, sea & all of Brixham below us). Could have sat there all day!! Fabulous.... The room was tastefully decorated with a sofa, extremely comfortable bed, quality bedding, fluffy towels and nice toiletries. Dressing gowns supplied which is a nice touch and complementary bottled water in fridge in the hallway, which you can also use to store a bottle of wine or other drinks should you wish... The location is very quiet, has a car park at the side of the house which is excellent, as parking is limited in Brixham. Its a short 5 min walk down quite a lot of steps to reach the harbour and the lovely little shops/restaurants/bars. There is also a lovely local pub at the end of the road (30-40 second walk) which was ideal to have a drink & finish the day. Finally, BREAKFAST!!!! WOW!!! I tried the full Frenglish, my partner had the continental. Then the 2nd day we were talked into trying the Eggs Benedict - just incredible!! Herve had a very successful restaurant for 25 years and it showed! Honestly the best breakfast I have ever had. Thanks to you both for a lovely stay & we hope to see you again. Lisa & Alex

We had the pleasure of staying at Beacon House for 4 nights in October. This bed and breakfast is without doubt a jewel in Brixham's crown. From arrival to departure attention to detail was second to none. We were staying in the Bayview room which gave a panoramic view of the bay. Impeccably clean and tastefully decorated, an oasis of calm in this COVID madness! Breakfast wow Breakfast! The expression "Breakfast like a king"definitely applies! To be honest we wanted to keep this to ourselves but that would be truly selfish. We will definitely return to our  "secret" hideaway!! Gavin and Loraine.
