Reviewed 5 November 2013

The hotel is set in amongst the trees and is just two minutes walk from the sea. The owners of the hotel were so warm and friendly that I was made to feel at home from the moment I arrived. The breakfast was excellent. There were homemade bread and jams, cereals, fruit and a fantastic cooked breakfast each morning. I stayed in a beautiful garden room perfect for relaxing and writing. Of all the places I have stayed this is without doubt my favourite. I'd love to stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

We stayed at this lovely hotel over the weekend 1st - 4th November. We booked the Riviera Room. A delightful dual aspect room with a bathroom that as well as being large and modern has mood lighting. Sigh. A pleasure I could do with at home! Marion and Les are so friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is well cooked and varied. Accompanied by Les's home made breads, jams and marmalades (the pumpkin seed bread and whisky marmalade were my lovely husband's favourites) Yummy. There is a swimming pool but it was much too cold for us to use, brilliant for summer though. If you are going to Torquay a stay at the Charter house Hotel would be my recommendation.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Charterhouse. Situated near Cockington, the position is great and we were able to leave the car in the car park and walk into Torquay and Paignton easily. The train station is also in easy walking distance, we took the train to Newton Abbot for a look around. As for the hosts, nothing is too much trouble. They are both on hand to advise and you are made to feel very welcome. The breakfasts are brilliant, just as good as a 4 star hotel! The bread is delicious and there are home made jams, marmalades and chutneys. The food was amazing. However, best of all was the warmth and genuine caring nature of Marion. Ask her for anything and she will sort it. She deserves 5 stars! Thanks for a great stay. We will be back!

My three sisters and I had a great stay in 'The Charterhouse". Marion knows the nicest places in and around Torquay and how to get there. She told us about the best tearoom in town and of course we have been there; the cream tea was great indeed! 'The Charterhouse' has good, comfortable beds and every day we enjoyed a very, very delicious breakfast. Marion can really entertain the guests and is only satisfied when the guests feel comfortable! Thank you Marion!

Just back from 3 raining days in Torquay, celebrating my birthday, staying with Les and Marion at The Charterhouse. Arrived in the middle of a monsoon and within minutes a pot of tea had arrived in our room complete with biscuits. Just what we needed. It was the start of a perfect few days. From the lovely bath robes to the yummy breakfasts (complete with Les's homemade bread and jams). To totally mirror the other comments, Marion really knows Torquay and acts as travel guide as well as host. I was also lucky enough to be staying in the lovely Riviera room (thanks to my lovely boyfriend) - which is above the standard of any b and b I have ever stayed in. A real treat. Our only issue was having to leave...

Wonderful place to stay. The rooms and grounds are very nice and it’s in a great location. Everything was spotless. Marion, our hostess, is amazing. She has to be one of the friendliest, most helpful owners I have ever encountered. My husband likened her to a “whirling dervish” but meant it in the kindest way. She is on top of everything and she wants her guests to enjoy their stay with her and enjoy Torquay and all it has to offer. Enjoy it we did. The rooms were well equipped, good bed and quiet setting. The breakfast was terrific; it was buffet style with several egg offerings, homemade breads, potatoes, sausage, beans, bacon, cereals, yogurt, fruit and more. I hated to leave!

We stayed for 3 nights, while visiting elderly relatives nearby. We paid for 2 nights and the 3rd was half price (special October offer) and on arrival were upgraded free to a superior room with a sea view and en suite with double sized shower.
Marion, who greeted us most warmly, was always on hand with advice and help. Breakfasts were excellent, with fresh fruit salad, home-made bread and marmalades and healthily cooked full English or other alternatives.
The location was good, with the sea front only a few metres down the road.

Room Tip: Room 15 is quietly situated at the side of the house, with partial sea views and a large shower.
