“Exceeded any expectations we had....brilliant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

Ended up here almost by accident as we joined some friends for a weekend away to use some vouchers they had been given for B & B accommodation. The choices were all round the country but I was pleased they chose Torquay as I used to live there.

From the time we arrived, Paul & Jayne made us feel very welcome. Rooms were good enough and everything seemed very clean. After we arrived, Jayne signed us in to the RAF Association club next door for a swift beer and we went to the harbour side for a meal at an italian called Amica which was top notch. Returned and had a nightcap in the RAFA club where there was a birthday celebration going on with live music. Nice crowd but the best entertainment was the fairly merry bloke who danced so badly he made me look good!

Had a great sleep in a very comfy bed (room 2 and a good size) and not long after waking up had the smell of breakfast drifting up from downstairs. We'd been given the breakfast menu the night before and the choice was superb but still didn't prepare us for the fantastic grub that was piled on the plates for us. All of this great food was accompanied by some very funny and entertaining conversations with Jayne who clearly loves having the guests to cook and bake for. I could best describe it as breakfast with cabaret and I'm only sorry that we hadn't booked to stay longer.

If you fancy a trip to Torquay, do it. It's a fabulous place and the only thing to make it a great break would be to stay at Brooklands and experience the hospitality and enjoy the breakfast. Good hosts and we'll go back again soon.

Room Tip: Room 2 was pretty good and had everything you'd need.

We stayed at Brooklands again this year for a four night stay after having such a good time last year. Again, everything was as expected - just perfect!

Paul and Jayne were as helpful and generous as ever. The room was spotless and the food was great.

Will be staying again.

We stayed here for my girlfriends birthday and we were made to feel welcome upon arrival. The bedroom was fantastic and the breakfasts were amazing!

The little extras provided at both breakfast (Easter egg!!) and in the bedroom (wine, chocolates etc.) were fantastic and was much appreciated (especially the surprise when they found out it was my girlfriends birthday). Nothing was too much trouble and they were very friendly, open and made us feel very welcome!

Will definitely return next time we are in Torquay!

We had to make a last-minute trip to Devon and needed somewhere for just one night. Jayne and Paul were excellent hosts; the breakfast choices were amazing! Extremely good value for money.
