“A wonderful long weekend away”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted, and given a map of the area, along with a brief overview of the local attractions, and a couple of recommendations of where to go to eat.
The hotel was nicely decorated and homely, and very clean (very important to my wife).
Our room was the Edgcombe Suite, which had a very modern bathroom, including a jet-spa bath. Very relaxing after a long day of walking up and down the all of the hills in the area.
There were plenty of sockets in the room for laptops, phone chargers etc., although the wifi was somewhat sketchy, and the signal wasn't very strong in the room, but the residents lounge downstairs offered much better wifi reception, so it wasn't really a problem. Also, you could borrow DVD's to watch in your room, as the TV in the room had built in DVD capability.
The breakfast selection was excellent, and expertly prepared, with cereals, fruit and cooked food all available. Everything was freshly prepared, and our hosts were keen to ensure that we had plenty to eat.
There is on site parking, which is a big plus, and as the town is within easy walking distance, we didn't need to move the car the whole time we were here.
All in all, my wife and I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, and will definitely visit again when in the area.

I took my mum away for a few days & stayed at Mount Edgcombe, a lovely, clean (very high on my priorities) very, very welcoming b&b. I booked late & had a twin room on ground floor which was very clean, warm & comfortable with everything you need including tea & coffee, a mini fridge, you are able to borrow dvds from the lounge to watch in your own room or in the lounge. Lovely bar area & the breakfast was superb with a very varied choice, we did not have an evening meal but, I'm sure it would of been to the same excellent standard as the breakfast. It is a short walk to the seafront so location is ideal, you can hear traffic but, only slightly if at the front but, I am a very light sleeper & wear earplugs all the time not just whilst away so not a problem. Pam & David are very welcoming & friendly & would definately stay again when next visiting Torquay.

My Partner and I have just returned from our stay of 3 nights in the Edgcombe Suite, at Mount Edgcombe.

Upon arrival we were greeted and welcomed by Pam, showed around the communal facilities and then up to our room. Each room was tastefully decorated and Clean. Pam ensured we were settled and should we need anything was more than willing to help where possible.

The residents lounge included a large flat screen TV (wall mounted), ample seating on Leather sofa's and arrange of Dvd's of which you were welcome to choose from throughout your stay.

Dining room was set out nicely, each morning your table was awaiting your arrival, Hot Coffee and Food was never a long wait and was tasteful, My Partner requested a large breakfast and it was plentiful.

The Bar was available each evening, however we did not use this.

The Edgcombe Suite was on the first floor at the back of the building, a Beautiful large Bathroom, Double shower and the reason we booked the room - Double Jacuzzi bath.
We really did enjoy the facilities in the bathroom. The room included a comfortable double bed, Dressing table, wardrobe, seating, wall mounted TV with Dvd player, Tea and Coffee Facilities and a mini fridge with fresh milk! We were very comfortable and happy through out our visit.

Other rooms were open and you could see each decorated nicely, and clean. Other rooms offered larger beds King and i believe bigger again - however not the same bathroom facilities.

Room Tip: Suite- has Double shower and Double Jacuzzi bath with Double bed and limited view. other rooms d...

This was our first visit to Mt Edgcombe and we were delighted with our choice.The breakfast selection and quality was first class. The position of the hotel was convenient for walking to the coast or to the town with a little bit more effort.We were made to feel at home very quickly and will definately return again when visiting Torquay.

Once again, Pam and David provided us with excellent accommodation, great food and service.
We visited mount edgecombe earlier in the year and enjoyed our stay so much, we couldn't wait to return. On arrival we were greeted and told that we were being upgraded as we were returning guests. The new room was lovely, spotlessly clean with all the things people require when travelling. The hotel is very quite and all guests are respectful of others. We were shocked at breakfast to find out, there were lots and lots of guests staying. The hotel is quite and feels very peaceful.
Once you have stayed at mount edgcombe, you will like us return again and again. Thankyou Pam and David.

Room Tip: Any. They are all lovely.

We recently stayed with Pam and Dave at the Mount Edgcombe for a relaxing weekend break, the hosts were so friendly and informative upon arrival nothing was too much trouble for them to make us feel at home and welcome. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated to a very high standard, the breakfast was absolutely first class everything cooked freshly and the choice was incredible and beautifully presented.The hotel is ideally situated with the sea front only a ten minute walk away, we would have no hesitation in recommending staying with these lovely people for a truly value for money vacation. We hope to return soon
