“So good we didn't want to go home!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

My husband picked Haldon Priors from the brochure, as a base for our 20th anniversary. We arrived to a warm welcome and Ping offered us tea/coffee and biscuits which we enjoyed in the lounge. We were staying in the Haldon Suite, as we had never had a honeymoon and decided to treat ourselves. The room was amazing, my husband is 6 ft 3 and able to stretch out in the bath, and on the bed. Everything was immaculate from the china cups to the shiny taps, and white bedding. Every aspect went above and beyond our expectations from the tea and coffee in the room (we were offered fresh milk, and had a mini fridge to store it in), to the complimentary toiletries, robes and slippers. The breakfasts were wonderful and roses on the table from their garden and also in the room offer the same personal touch, and extra effort we experienced throughout. We were so comfy we decided to stay an extra night, and whereas this could have been a problem we were so happy we chose to stay, and sad to leave. We even received a box of chocolates and a card signed by everyone. We were touched by their kindness. Our stay was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble be it phoning for a taxi, or a plaster for a cut finger. We have stayed at luxury hotels, in the past but this far exceeded any to date. Thank you Ping, Becky and Peanut for our warm welcome.

Room Tip: Peaceful and luxurious. We stayed in the Haldon suite and although we didn't have a sea view, ne...

A lovely welcoming place to stay in Torquay. The house and grounds are in a leafy suburb, within walking distance to the harbour and the beach. The atmosphere within the house is relaxed, with excellent hospitality given by all. Nothing was too much trouble, it was a very pleasant stay and we can highly recommend it.

We stayed at Haldon Priors in June 2014 for three nights. Ping was very helpful when booking and upon arrival she made us feel welcome. I wanted to stay somewhere with a bit more class so I chose Haldon Priors based on photos and reviews I had read. The price that bit higher but I think it is worth paying that bit more for a nicer setting. The accommodation itself is lovely, very lovely entrance. We stayed in the sea view room over looking the pool which was lovely. The room is really big, it is old fashioned but also lovely. There is a TV in the room. The bed is comfortable. The shower annoyed me slightly. I really like a powerful shower and I couldn't get the temperature right. There is a clean bath in the bathroom too. We ran out of toilet paper and Ping provided a new roll straight away all we had to do was ask.
The breakfast was lovely and the breakfast room is relaxing. I went for poached eggs on toast which were cooked to perfection. Couples in there were chatty. Not keen on the quality of the coffee. I am a coffee snob though. The outside pool lovely. We had to ask Ping for the pool room to be opened. I would rather be able to walk straight in but maybe this is done because of health and safety. The water was too cold to get into the outdoor pool unfortunately. It would have been helpful to know that we could have used the fridge for cold drinks and snacks when sat by the pool. I was told on the last day there is a fridge. Ping is so lovely and really accommodating. I would definitely recommend Haldon Priors and I would go back for sure! I am really very fussy about where I stay when it comes to hotels etc but this suits my standards. Thank you Ping!

Haldon Priors is a villa located in a quiet road away from the hubbub of central Torquay. Within walking distance we used the car. Our room (Seaview suite) was spotless with the usual toiletries, tea coffee etc. The bed was comfy & overall it is very quiet. Ping is a very welcoming host supported by Peanut!. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of food -the smoked haddock is especially good. We were lucky to be the only guests there which was nice for us. The weather was mostly good & we didn't have time to use the pools or the sauna.

Everything is wonderful. The whole building is high spec and so very clean. Our room (8) was simply fantastic. Very big with all the home comforts and more! The owner is very friendly and you also have Peanut the little dog to welcome you. The breakfasts are the best we have ever had. Enough parking for everyone. There is a small garden and pool for sunny days. They also provide a fantastic balcony area, where you can sit and drink the afternoons away. Haldon Priors has no bar, so bring your own. Our room had a drinks fridge for it. Located about a mile from the town centre near Meadfoot beach. There is a bus service or you can walk. The walk either there or back from town will involve walking up a steep hill. We simply ordered a taxi (£4.50). Enjoy!

Room Tip: Maybe more money, but go for room 8. However, there is no view from this room, just a very large hig...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the wonderful Becky who immediately offered an excellent standard of hospitality that was maintained throughout our stay.
The accommodation as were the pools and grounds are kept in excellent order.
Peace and tranquillity. The perfect location to re- charge your batteries.
Would without doubt visit again.

We have just spent 4 nights at this glorious B&B in Torquay. We had been looking for somewhere to stay that wasn't in the centre of the resort but still gave us easy access to the town should we need it. From reading the reviews on TripAdvisor Haldon Priors Hotel seemed just the place we'd been searching for, and so it proved to be.
From the moment we arrived at the Hotel, when we were warmly greeted by the owner, we felt very relaxed and comfortable. Set in immaculate gardens the rooms and standard of service in the Hotel were excellent. To complement this there was also an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, and various terraces with comfortable chairs, tables, sun loungers and umbrellas. Everything was kept immaculately clean and we didn't need for anything whilst we were there. Our breakfasts were of the highest standard, and unlike larger hotels were cooked to order.
We wouldn't hesitate in highly recommending this establishment to anyone who wants 5 star accommodation and service. Haldons Prior is indeed a gem and we look forward to the time when we can make a return visit.
