“Ideal location and wonderful service”
Reviewed 19 March 2011

This is the second time that my husband and I have stayed at the Colindale and we can't recommend it enough. The location is ideal, within walking distance of the town centre and seafront, the rooms are clean and the owners, Sven and Barry, go that extra mile to make our stay as comfortable as possible with fresh milk in the room for teas and coffees, restaurant recommendations etc. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all visitors to Torquay and surrounding areas.

Spent two comfortable nights with all the facilities one could want. Slept better than at home and enjoyed the excellent breakfast, cooked to order. Even if it had rained the whole stay I could have been happy just resting at the Colindale and reading through their extensive library in comfort. The owner and his staff could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Those little extras - like tea and crumpets on arrival after a long and delayed train journey!

I recently stayed at the Colindale B&B for my 30th birthday and went down there with twelve friends and family for the celebration, and what a fantastic experience it was.

Everything about dealing with the Colindale was a pleasure from the planning beforehand to the weekend itself. It was decided that we would have dinner in the dining room there as Barry the proprietor is a gourmet chef. The sample menus he provided were mouthwatering and the dinner on the night itself was pretty mindblowing, if you are a foodie it is worth a visit for this alone.

The B&B itself is a treasure trove of wonderful things the communal rooms on the ground floor are exceptionally welcoming and a wonderful place to while away the hours. The bedrooms were clean and well appointed and all twelve guests had a good night sleep. Breakfast the next day was also delicious, in the end it was difficult for us to leave!

The B&B is about five minutes from the station so there is limited faff on arrival as you can walk there very easily, Sven from the B&B came to collect us off the train which was a lovely touch. Colindale itself is perfectly located so you can enjoy all Torquay minutes from the Torre and the sea-front yet set back from anything rowdy.

Everything about our experience there was top class and all of it contributed to making it a very special weekend.

If you are looking for a weekend away with friends or just an intimate weekend with loved ones this B&B is a must.

myself and my husband stayed at The Colindale for a weeks holiday, what brilliant hosts we had in Barry and Sven they were very hospitable they couldn't do enough for us breakfast was out of this world and Svens home made bread was to die for! the rooms were excellent, tastefully decorated with a very handsome bear sitting on the bed every day amongst the many cushions, i would not hesitate to recommend The Colindale to anyone 'Thanks for a lovely stay'
