“Holiday Heaven”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

My husband and I have just returned from a five night stay at the Briarfield.
The rooms were better than most 5*hotels we have stayed in..The hosts Pete and Trish ensured
our every need was accomodated..The breakfast and service was outstanding. Location was perfect for all amenities and attra ctions. Pete's directions were always acurate and we never got lost once !!! We could have stayed forever and will definately return..
We reccomend anyone visiting Torquay to visit this exceptional accomodation.
Thank you Pete and Trish for making us so welcome and even after a small booking mix up managed to relocate us to another room withought issue. Perfect Hosts Perfect stay.

We received a warm welcome by Trisha & Pete who were really friendly and informative about the area and recommended places to eat & visit. Trisha took us to our suite on the top floor and showed us how the TV and airconditioning worked. The room was large, modern and spotlessly clean. There was fresh milk & bottled water topped up daily in our fridge as well as biscuits to accompany our tea/coffee making facilities. We had airconditioning as well as a ceiling fan which was greatly appreciated during the warm evenings. The ensuite had complimentary toiletries as well as additional touchs such as cotton wool buds & an airfreshener. Breakfast was served by Trisha and Pete between 8:30-9:30 am with lots of choices of cooked breakfasts as well as cereals, yoghurts and fruit. Trisha was always checking we had everything we wanted with our breakfast - nothing was ever too much trouble.

We loved it at the Briarfields - a real home from home. We would definately recommend this B&B and would not hesitate to stay again should we return to the area. Thank you Trisha and Pete for all of your hard work!

Stayed for 4 nights. The hosts were extremely friendly (Pete and Trish) and the service they provided was excellent. Car parking was tight - just 4 lanes (2 cars per lane) in front of the B&B, but you could leave your keys with them if logistics needed it without feeling it was risky. Our room was very clean. The matress was just a bit soft for my liking but there was a ceiling fan and Breakfast was excellent - fresh and orders were taken individually for what you wanted while at your table.
The hotel was a 5min walk to DT's pub and an excellent curry restaurant.
I would highly recommend the Briarfields.

Stayed for 1 week at Briarfields, Torquay in July 2013. We had room 4 executive suite. It was fabulous, the room ran from front to back of the hotel, the back being the bedroom and the front the sitting area with, kettle etc, tv, sofa and all important fridge which was a must as the week was very hot and which was stocked up with fresh milk and water every day. Bed was huge and comfortable and there was a tv too. Breakfast was wonderful everything you could ask for. Trish & Pete were wonderful hosts and were only to happy to advise and give tips on transport and restaurants etc.
