“a real home away from home!”
Reviewed 9 June 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week at Abberley Guest House.
Due to heavy traffic it took us 8 hours to get from west yorkshire to Torquay and its fair to say we were a bit grumpy and tired.... but when Jackie came to the door, welcomed us in and offered us a cup of tea we knew we had found a little gem of a guest house.
We were shown to our room and it was so clean and very practical, this house is like a tardis inside by the way! We stayed in room 6 and were very pleased with it.
The next morning we went downstairs where Dave was waiting to take our breakfast order. Everything was fresh and made to order, it was delicious, there was also a variety cereals available.
The bed made for a very comfortable nights sleep
Dave & Jackie are wonderful hosts and really took an interest in how our holiday was going.
The guest house is not bang in the centre of Torquay but is certainly within walking distance of Torquay centre (15 mins) & Babbacombe centre (10 mins).
If you are looking for a clean, friendly and reasonably priced Guest House then look no further!
Thank you for letting us stay with you it was a pleasure :-) Stef & Carl

Just back from our first trip to the English Riviera,the weather may have been indifferent but this Guest House certainly wasn't .It did exactly what it said on the tin(brochure).
Big Dave & Jackie were superb hosts.Quite liked the door on the shower room/en suite after all we have been married 37 years.Ground floor room was handy no point climbing stairs when you don't have to. Breakfast was freshly made and served with fresh tea & coffee.Brill break can't wait to make another trip.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are ideal , handy for the lounge & dinning room.Windsor Road is quiet little...

Only stayed the one night but would recommend it to anyone,clean,comfortable and an excellent breakfast.Its only a 10-15 walk to Babbacombe where we had an excellent night at the Babbacombe Inn and its a level walk back to the guest house,the owners were very welcoming taking time out to have a chat with you,would definately stay there again.

Didn't really appreciate being plonked in the downstairs room next to the front door (but I guess they had their reasons) and also didn't like the see-through glass door into the toilet. Bizarre!
Otherwise, the room was pleasant enough.

Many of our returning guests specifically request this room finding it very comfortable.
As far as the toilet door is concerned, this is the first comment that has been made in nearly five years. The photo submitted has obviously been taken with the person on the inside standing right up to the door to over emphasise the effect. Had this lady been standing even 6 inches from the door she would have been hardly visible. Since moving in four and a half years ago we have been working on a program of extensive refurbishment and this door will be changed in due course.

I usually stay in chain hotels, but decided to stay at this guest house after reading the reviews here. I wasn't disappointed. The room we stayed in was clean and well decorated, as was the lounge. We decided to walk to Babbacombe Downs and were even given printed directions to follow. We were made to feel very welcome - a real home from home! I got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. I've stayed at many places which could do with a lesson in customer service from these proprietors! Excellent breakfast as well. The only downside - we only stayed for one night. We would definitely stay here again.

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.
