5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

I found Acorn Lodge on the internet and used the reviews on Trip advisor to find a good standard hotel and a good price.
Acorn Lodge were great as we truggled to find somewhere for 2 adults and 2 teenaged children. They juggled things to make space. Best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B. Very clean and friendly. Will go back again.

Room Tip: the room had a separate area so the kids were private.

Just back from another visit to Acorn Lodge with my husband and 3 grandchildren.We had another wonderful holiday,the hotel is lovely,very clean, the breakfasts are freshly cooked and plenty of it, Pauline's strawberry jam and marmalade are the best. On arrival you're offered tea-coffee with fruit juice for the children with home made cakes,which is a lovely touch.The hotel is in good repair and Pat and Pauline take pride in their hotel which show's,
the decking was covered with pots of lovely colourful flowers,Thank you for a great stay and for the fan,the children enjoyed their chewy bar and also say thanks for putting up with them we hope to see you again.

Stayed here back in May. Was a bit late after a long trek from Scotland by car but was held up on the M5 by traffic.
Have to say the owners left were excellent in my stay,and asked me if I needed anything and left me when I needed space. I wanted a quiet getaway fromt he city and this was an excellent location. Close enough to the town centre and quiet enough to get peace to relax.
Rooms were adequate and everything I needed and nice clean, soft towels. Bonus was lots of places to park the car.
Would come again if I m ever down this way. Was a pleasure to stay and couple who run the place and big shout for a lovely weekedn stay.

Room Tip: Book early

spent a long weekend here, i have absolutely no complaints, our room was warm and clean & tidy, with everything you need. Breakfast was great. Not too far from the main town. This place is very good value for money

What a great B&B in a great location just far enough away from the noise of the town but not too far that you can't walk.
Pauline greeted us with coffee and homemade cake which was a lovely touch.
Room was great lovely and airy were given a larger room as we were staying an extended day, bed was gorgeous great night sleep is guaranteed.
Pat makes a great breakfast nothing is to much trouble.
Def recommend this little gem, will be back.

Myself and my partner spent a weekend here recently for my birthday. At only £50 per night including breakfast, I felt that this represented excellent value.
The first thing that helped our trip run smoothly was being able to park on the street directly outside. The guest house is located in a quiet and picturesque neighbourhood and we never doubted our safety or that of the car. It was also conveniently positioned a 10 minute stroll from the seafront.
On arrival we were greeted by our host, Pauline, who seems friendly in a genuine and relaxed way which is what we like. The building smelt fresh and clean and so did our room when we walked in. The room itself (number 2) is smallish, but this is to be expected and not a problem. It was clean, light and basically furnished with a moveable wallmounted flat screen tv. The ensuite bathroom was lovely and clean, with complimentary handwash and shower gel. Only slight issue I can raise is that if you stay on the ground floor like we did, you may hear footsteps above; especially if young children are staying (or heavy footed adults! ) It didn't bother us a great deal though and is not something that can be controlled.
Complimentary tea and coffee facilities were available with some delicious biscuits as a nice touch.
Breakfast was good also. Nothing was too much trouble!
Overall, a fantastic stay with unobtrusive service. We will definirely be back!

What a lovely place to stay in Torquay - tucked away from the main road, it was quiet, there is free parking outside on the road. it's easy to find. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our beautiful clean room - the bedding was immaculately laundered and looked new, the en suite shower room was also pristine and smelled lovely - there were some lovely natural products out for us to use too.The breakfast was served downstairs and was quick but personal, and we could have virtually whatever we wanted. The Poached eggs on toast I had were perfectly cooked (i asked for them to be well done as I hat squishy raw egg white) The toast was hot and the atmosphere that of a holiday. I would definitely use this B&B again and plan to return with my hubby soon. We'll even work our long weekend around room availability so we can stay here again - that's how good it was. The beds were comfy, there was a colour TV, WIFI, tea and coffee tray in the room and a helpful list of local activities and eatery suggestions made personally by the owners which was a lovely touch. I would recommend this B&B to my parents which is the highest accolade I could give them as my mother is fussiest person I have ever met!

Room Tip: I would give Acorn a ring rather than through Last minute websites or booking agents as they will fi...
