“We had a lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 3 nights and couldn't fault it, lovely breakfast each morning, our room was large and the bed very comfy. Very reasonably priced, clean and tidy and friendly owners. Especially enjoyed my piece of cake when we arrived. Only a few minutes walk away from a nice pub the bull and bush which is worth a visit. Also only a few mins away from the train and buses. Shower was hot and powerful and we were grateful for the complimentary toiletries provided. There is also free parking. It was our first time in torquay and we really enjoyed it, if we come again we would probably stay here again. Best wishes, April and Owain x

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed for 1 night with 2 children. Parked right outside on a quiet street which was nice although they have parking at the back. Easy check in with coffee and cake bought to the room which was nice. Rooms clean and big enough. Sleep quality was good. Reasonably close to the centre.

Breakfast fine but only from 8.30 for 45 minutes, with young children we are always up and looking to have breakfast and get going. Would recommend on price and comfort.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

A lovely warm welcome, coffee and cake was provided on arrival. The room was very clean, and nothing was too much trouble, Hubby and I stayed for 4 night's and even though the b&b was full every night we were made to feel like the most important people there. We are already thinking of going back again next year and stating at the same place. The cooked breakfast was very nice as well and you could have second's of anything that you required!
Thank you very much Pat & Pauline for such a lovely stay :)

On arrival was greeted with a warm welcome. They were well organised and provided tea and buns while we were setting up. Rooms were clean, but bit on the small side, but this did not effect anything. Breakfast was great 10/10. Pauline and Pat were a lovely couple and offered local advice. Would definitely return and recommend to friends and family .

The welcome of tea and cakes was a lovely surprise. Our rooms were very comfortable, extremely clean and quiet. Everything we needed was available. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of it. Very friendly and helpful. What a shame we could not stay longer. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Well worth a stay with fantastic service.

A nice welcome from the landlady, she was busy with someone else so it was brief at best, shown to my room, it was a single room with an en-suite. Being 6"4 a single bed is problematic at the best of times, it was a VERY small room. Also the Wi-Fi was only available when I sat in the alcove of the entry door to the room, sat on the bed, one bar at best.

I did have a few quibbles and I have taken pictures just to show i'm not making this up.

1. The back of the entry door did have a large handle to floor stain on it, probably coffee or some hot drink I imagine.
2. The bottom sheet on the bed did have a couple of brown-ish coloured stains by the side of the pillow, I don't know what they were.
3. There was a few stray hairs in the bathroom, one is pictured on top of the cistern, picky I know, but I have been watching a lot of 4 in bed, haha!
4. Beneath the toilet seat wasn't wiped, I only noticed this as i'm a guy who's polite.

Overall an average experience, i'm sure on another given day it would be perfect and I don't wish to detract from other good reviews.

Not a bad place, i'd recommend parking on the bridge.

Room Tip: Don't go for a single room, always double up.

Thankyou for your comments, we take the cleanliness of our property very seriously and I can only apologise if standards were not of the highest quality. I do wish when I asked if everything was OK with your room that you had voiced your above comments so that we could have apologised in person or rectified the situation to your satisfaction.

With regard to the WiFi we have had many business people staying in that room and many of them have commented on the efficiency of the WiFi, if you were trying to connect through a mobile phone then I can understand that this may have been more of a problem.

Very welcoming owners with tray of tea and cakes upon arrival. Helpful with local knowledge and brochures. Very delicious breakfast in nice setting. Room and en-suite on small side but spotless and contained everything we needed. We found it a little confusing to find Acorn Lodge every time we went out. Room was nice and quiet for a good nights sleep.
