“Friendly and Welcomming”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

We visited Southbourne Villa with a group of friends for a weekend in February. David and Edna were very welcoming. The breakfast was amazing especially the fresh fruit selection. Oh and not to mention the amazing freshly cooked full English breakfast.

David recommended 2 lovely places to eat and arranged taxis for us.

The whole house is really clean spotless in fact!

We will be back!

Room Tip: It is in a quiet road, slightly back from the road meaning a good night's sleep all around.

Recenlty returned from a 3 night stay. Everything about this guest house was of a high quality.
Complimentary coffee & biscuits on arrival. Room immaculate. Choice of breakfasts to suit everyone. We would definately recommend and return again in the future.

We stayed for my birthday and were made very welcome. Unfortunately I was ill and stayed in bed, which was very comfy! This is a family run hotel and they gave us lots of info on the area about the best restaurants and pubs. Very clean and breakfast was lovely. Planning on going back in the summer.

A well run large B&B, more like a small hotel. The owner is very welcoming and friendly, the rooms are spotless and well maintained. Very comfortable public rooms and the whole place is bright and well decorated.

The breakfast selection is great with loads of fresh fruit, food cooked to order using quality produce.

If your looking for a good quality B&B in Torquay then this is it. Well worth its rating.

Spotlessly clean room. Towels changed every day. All the little extras that you would expect to find in a four star hotel. Lovely size room. Breakfast was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. Friendly host.

Easy access on a road running parallel to the main road in to Torquay seafront. Ten minute brisk walk to the seafront.
Great welcome, with help with luggage. Comfortable bed, spotless room and en-suite, with robes, lots of great towels, fridge with fresh milk and still and sparkling water. Absolutely anything you want for breakfast with some nice touches with top of the range Wilkins Tiptree preserves and honey. Even Vegemite available!
Charming host and hostess.
Would recommend and would use again.

Room Tip: Spotless, quiet, good location.

Took friends at the beginnig of October as a treat.
We were greeted happily at the door and offered a welcome cuppa and a friendly chat.Our friends had the 4 poster room and were thrilled.It was spotlessly clean and inviting.We had a standard double which again was spotless and even had robes and abudance of clean towels mini fridge with bottled water and milk.We also had a selection of hot drink sachets etc
Breakfast was 2nd to none,Service with a smile and chat and the best breakfast choice you could want,from full English,to anything on toast , cereals, fresh and dried fruit, yogurts etc etc.
We went as couples for this break but would definately return and it is suitable for famillies or solo visitors equally.
Lovely family who really deserve the 5 * and lots of custom

Room Tip: All rooms were equally as nice and the overall position was quiet so cant go far wrong with room cho...
