Once more a wonderful place to stay Jackie & Dave were very friendly and helpful. Barry asked if they new where to find info on model railways and Dave said he could show him one very close. His garage in fact. He was extremely helpful and gave him lots of ideas. Did a lot of walking as easy to get to both Torquay & Babbacombe 10-15 minutes.Excellant bus service every 15 minutes if preferred to Torquay.Breakfast excellant and room extremely nice and kept clean.

Apart from the judgement of the criteria below, we would like to stress the fact that we felt very comfortable at Abberley's due to the warm and family-oriented atmosphere. Customer-oriented in any whatsoever respect. Anything is done with great attention to detail. Cosy and tasteful designed rooms, nice living room with TV, radio and small library any time accessible to the guests.

Stayed here twice now and would thoroughly reccommend this guesthouse. Very pleasant welcoming couple, who offer a cup of tea on arrival. Nice and clean, recently decorated rooms, each with en suite shower. Great cooked breakky too! Quiet location within easy reach of Torquay Centre (5 mins drive) and delightful Babbacombe seafront. All in all very good value for money.

The service was great, greeted every morning with welcoming and polite host and hostess. The English breakfast was generous , with a choice of cereal and fruit juice. The rooms are very clean with ensuite and working showers . Clean towels provided everyday as was supply of tea/ coffee. The locality is not too far from the beach and there is ample amenities.
Definitely recommend visiting and staying in this guest house.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms very quiet and spacious.

My wife and I have just returned following a weekend at the Abberley Guest House for our Football Teams final away game of the season.The Hosts Jackie& Dave were very polite and friendly and nothing was too much for them. Good choice of Breakfasts, just ask! The rooms were warm, clean and tidy and we were never disturbed by noise.Plenty of on street parking and within a flat walking distance of football ground(5mins) and Babbacombe & Babbacombe Downs(10-15 mins) famous for its model village.If walking from the Guest house to sea front or town centre, would recommend a bus or taxi back(unless you feel fit).Highly recommend a day at Cockington Hall for those who like pleasant walks and chocolate box scenery.This was our first visit to Torquay and we will definately come again.
