“Worth every penny”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Excellent hotel, superb clean, furnitures well match and provide sense of luxury. Truly kind and attentive owners, providing smile excellent service and makes you feel more than welcome.

Breakfast - you can't ask for more, from full English to continental breakfast, cereals, yogurts and fruits as Swedish table as much as you can eat, no rush everything fresh and local and prepared to please the palate. We want to especially thank Lady Tao for making our stay there incredibly pleasant.

Free Wi-Fi and parking

Room Tip: One thing - make sure you got a map cause finding right street is a challenge in Torquey.

If ever there was a candidate for no 1 B&B in Torquay this is it. Tao welcomed me after walking the coastal path with a pot of coffee and was charming and solicitous throughout my stay. The accommodation was small but perfect in every way and the decor is plush. Breakfast was superb and the dining room is luxuriously appointed. Brendan was helpful in advice for my day's walk - all in all highly recommended

We were visiting Torquay to go to our friends' wedding and needed somewhere to stay for a couple of nights. We found Walnut Lodge through TripAdvisor and were impressed by the ratings and reviews, so we had a look at the website and decided to book. On the day we arrived after a lengthy journey from Sheffield, we were greeted by a smiling Tao and received with a lovely pot of tea- just what we needed! She was really happy to help us with everything, giving us recommendations on where we might like to eat out and suggesting places to visit on the day after the wedding.

The guest house itself was tastefully decorated and well appointed. Our room had its own tea and coffee-making facilities and there was even a fridge. Plenty of towels were provided in the en-suite along with dressing gowns and complimentary toiletries. We found the bed large and comfortable, and there was plenty of storage for our things. Breakfast was another great aspect of our stay; as vegetarians, there were plenty of cooked options to suit us, the selection of cereals was excellent, and there was even fresh fruit.

All in all, we were very pleased with our choice of guest house and would definitely stay there again. Tom & Sarah

On entering Walnut Lodge. we were greet warmly by Tao, for whom, nothing is too much trouble.
It is an establishment like no other (certainly, none we've stayed in) It is in good position for getting out and about in Torquay & surrounding area. No shortage of things to do or places to go.We have relatives in the area and it is likley that we would stay there again. Fantastic coffee, complimentary bath products and gowns (very useful)

Room Tip: Choose any room, you will not be disappointed.

Clean, comfortable, value for money and a wonderful host! Well recommended. Just out of town but if like us you fancy a walk or jump in a taxi its no problem. Rooms are impeccably clean and all the usual comforts, lovely bathroom toiletries. The lady who owns the place(?) was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and over breakfast apart from finishing it for us she couldn't have done anymore. Wishing you success!!!!!!!
