“Superb B&B”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

Stayed at The Brierfields 29th September for 3 nights, we booked the executive suite which was FABULOUS. Huge bed and lovely lounge area, tea making facilites with lots of biscuits restocked every day. Very nice bathroom everywhere was spotless, great selection at breakfast. Peter and Trish the owners are very friendly and welcoming. Cant rate this B&B too highly. Will definitely be returning.

We visited a language school in Torquay. That's why we stayed at the Briarfields for 2 weeks. We really recommend the Briarfields to everyone. It was well furnished and the room was very clean. The breakfeast was delicious and they served our breakfeast even earlier because our school started in the early morning. Many thanks for that. Thanks a lot to Peter and Trish for the lovely stay at Briarfields.

Stayed from 21st to 24th September in a large, quiet room at the top of the house while we visited the National Flower Arranging Show with friends. Attractive decor, spotlessly clean, well furnished/equipped, comfortable bed, warm welcome and delicious breakfasts. Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable stay. Briarfields really does live up to the excellent reviews that it has received, and I am busy recommending it to all and sundry!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 5 at the top rear of the house. Lovely, quiet room but did need the ceiling fan r...

I booked Briarfields for a nice weekend break for my girlfriend's 25th birthday.
When booking my only real criteria was for somewhere relatively small but somewhere that looked clean and nice - basic I know - and Briarfields had already won me over on the approach.
Plenty of car parking for a B&B, well located, easy to find. Arrived at roughly 8pm despite saying we would arrive early evening - this was no problem at all and the welcome we received was very warm and pleasant. Shown up to our bedroom - the executive suite - this was FANTASTIC! Enormous bed, additional 'living space', two televisions, ferrero rocher's (won me over again there!). Beautiful shower and clean bathroom.
Excellent breakfast on first morning, overslept on the second morning however.
When we arrived back after Day One, to once again an immaculately clean room, there was a bottle of wine in the room. The girlfriend's father had called the B&B whilst we were out and had organised but the owner went to the trouble to go out of his way to find a particular bottle.
Much appreciated!
Check-out perfectly smooth as per the rest of the stay.
All I can say is THIS IS A MUST!
We WILL be returning.

Room Tip: Executive Suite is fantastic!

We stayed for 4 nights at Briarfields in a huge room with 6'6 bed and a separate seating area with sofa. The room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean & the bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast each morning was lovely and always ended with a nice chat with the owners Peter & Trish who were very friendly and helpful & really made us feel at home.
We will definitely recommend this B&B to friends and family.

The rooms were extremely comfortable and had all mod cons - the shower was superb. Peter and Trish give attention to detail and we will certainly recommend The Briarfields to our friends and family.

Very welcoming and very helpful with places near by to visit and eat. We stayed in the executive suite and it was a very spacious and clean room, with an extra seating area which was nice. Quiet and very relaxed environment.
Breakfast was very nice with a good selection. Well worth the money for the room and stay.
Would recommend this hotel and we will definately be going back the next time we are planning a trip.
