Reviewed 26 August 2013

we arrived with a very warm welcome by Jackie and a lovely cup of tea the room was excellent and Jackie was very helpful and provided us with plenty of information about where to go and eat. Loved the option of pay on the day breakfast. that was cooked to perfection. We also had the option of an evening meal. Cannot recommend this charming guest house enough. I will deffinetly stay there again the next time we visit Devon.

From the moment we were greeted at the door to the moment Jackie ( the owner) waved us a safe journey home, the stay at Abberley Guest House was excellent. Although the room was booked as "room only" we chose to have the hearty full English Breakfast for £4 each (yes only £4 incl tea, coffee, juice, cereals, toast and a generous fry up) we also had the evening meal, which was all prepared fresh and home cooked, good traditional choices with superb puddings to follow, you can have a 3 course meal for only £12 each - the premises were spotless and Jackie's local knowledge meant we could plan a fun packed week, nothing was too much trouble. Within only hours of being we felt like Jackie was an old friend! Having stayed at very expensive hotels over the last 25 years, I have to say that none of them come close to Jackie or her guest house, you will not be disappointed with anything, we weren't and we can't wait to return. Jackie thank you for taking such great care of us.

Thank you for your comments. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. We are known for our breakfast. Just for the record, the only part of our breakfast we fry would be an egg, the rest being grilled or cooked in the oven. We hope to see you again some time

This is the cleanest accommodation we have ever stayed in,the room had everything we needed and was cleaned and Tea and Coffee etc replaced every day.
Jackie was very welcoming and gave us the run down on where to go and how to get there,even had a printed sheet giving directions until we got used to the location .
We would recommend Abberley Guest House to anyone wanting a nice break in a clean and friendly environment .

Room Tip: only stayed in one room but from the standard of that room i am sure all will be as good.

We spent another great week end with Jacky at Abberley Guest House, in Torquay. She made us very welcome and catered for all our needs. The food was great, as usual, the room was very comfortable. It was like staying with friends, only better. It was very good value for money - we just don't know how Jacky does it. We certainly hope to visit again

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable, if you have difficulty in climbing stairs there is one double room an...

Great place. Super clean, tidy, recently decorated room. Delicious breakfast. Easy 5 minute walk to beautiful babbacoombe downs, shops and restaurants. Jackie was very welcoming and helpful. Definitely worth staying here, great value too.

We decided at the very last minute to book a few days in Torquay, found this guest house by chance via late rooms.com when another guest house was unavailable for such a short notice booking.

Very easy to find via sat nav. Welcomed by Jackie who provided us with lots of information about what was available locally. Our room was very well presented. The guest house very tranquil and comfortable. We didn't have breakfast there as Babbacombe was a very short walk away and we enjoyed going there and trying the different cafes.

A few pubs locally were great for a quiet evening out for some pub food and drinks.
Only booked for 2 nights due to short notice planning but hope to stay at the guesthouse again at some point in the future.
