Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2012

So much for kids to do in Torquay.
10 minute walk through gardens to the seafront.
could have spent a week here exploring instead of just the weekend.
lovely breakfast and hospitality.
Can't ask for more!

As other reviewers have stated, super proprietors David & Pam make your stay a wonderful one. Always very welcoming with big beaming smiles, nothing too much trouble, and food plentiful and first class. Love my full English Breakfasts, and needed to do plenty of walking to justify clearing my plate every morning ! Didn't do the evening meals as we liked to get out and about, but everyone who did eat evening meals during our stay that we spoke to, seemed to echo our impressions of breakfast - top quality and delicious ! Anything we enquired about was dealt with instantly and with a smile - a genuine smile - how can you be so pleasant with everyone? Shows why I'm not in this business !
This was our second stay here, and although a five minute walk to seafront, we would not consider another guest house in Torquay after staying here. Some little gems you stumble upon and would like to keep to yourself, but Pam & David are diamonds to share !
Rooms very clean and comfortable, well stocked with extras and nice little touches. Laptop in the lounge and free wifi available throughout, which pleased our 11 year old as he was getting withdrawal symptoms from his x-box left at home. Plenty of parking out front, which was good as I never like leaving the car on the road. Recommend you looking at their website at all the facilities - cannot see anyone being disappointed after a stay here. Wonderful !

Room Tip: stayed in two different rooms now, and both equally as good.

What a marvellous hotel to stay at. Pam & David are the most welcoming of hosts, who never thought anything was too much trouble, we thought the breaakfasts were to die for but the evening meals were out of this world!! We stayed 7 nights and found the rom we were in very comfortable (The Edcombe Suite). The hotel is decorated to a high standard, we couldn't fault anything during our stay. Perfect !!
Thanks to you both for making our holiday most enjoyable.
Les & Sue.

Would recommend this hotel in Torquay, we stayed only one night but found the room very clean and comfortable, with excellent breakfast and very friendly proprietors. We propose to stay again as we have family close by.

What a find this little gem of a place was! We've just got back from 2 nights at Mount Edgcombe and were blown away by the standard of everything there. The welcome was fantastic. We took our guide dog and he was also made very welcome. The room was beautiful, enormous and spotlessly clean. Everything had been thought of. The breakfast was out of this world, fresh, tasty and piping hot. There's a lovely bar where David is a great host. We couldn't beleive what we got for the price we paid - excellent value. The only downside is that we had to leave! Highly recommend Mount Edgcombe to anyone visiting Torquay. We will certainly be returning to David and Pam and sooner rather than later.

Just returned from our three night stay here with Pam and David who made us feel very welcome from the start.Our room(1)was a good size with a huge,very comfortable bed,and plenty of room.Bathroom was a little' tight',but all you need...shower,hand basin and loo....all spotlessly clean as was the whole hotel.Lots of lovely whilte towels of all sizes.... and room for all our clothes.(There are other rooms available with baths and showers etc etc)
Mount Edgcombe is in a great position....an easy walk into Torquay town centre,marina,harbour and the main beach,through Torre Abbey grounds.Torre Abbey gardens are free entry at the moment and well worth a look and a quiet sit to smell the lavender....very peaceful!You can leave your car in the car park just by your room and explore on foot.
We ate in on the first night,having a bar meal(fully stocked bar).....wow....all home cooked food by Pam.....chicken curry for my husband and a lasagne for me...lovely!!The breakfasts were great....all freshly cooked if you wanted it,kippers,fruit salad,cereals etc etcfull English,or cheese on toast.You can also order a picnic if you wish.....they seem to have thought of everything and certainly both work very hard to maintain an excellent standard.Having said all that,the prices are extremely reasonable and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Mount Egdcombe to anyone wanting a very affordable,comfortable stay in Torquay.We will certainly be back if we are in the area again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask what the room facilities are when booking.
