This is the third time we have stopped here and the service and cleanliness are still of an excellent standard. It is in a quite location and not far from Babbacombe and if you are supporting your football team Torquay FC is close by. It is nice to have a warm welcome when you arrive and the friendliness of the Hotel ensured we would look forward to the next time. Breakfast is a meal to savour.

We booked for two nights and Diane and Clive made us and our Cavalier king Charles spaniel most welcome, with tea on arrival. "Daisy' would pull us into the hotel to be made a fuss of each time. There is a small park opposite for doggie visits which is very handy and provides easy parking. Our ground floor room was very clean with attention to detail, including doggie treats. Being on the ground floor near the front door you felt you did not disturb other guests with the odd bark. We took our own dog food and bedding and we all had a relaxing stay. "Daisy" would be quite happy to go on her own next time.

Stayed here for two nights with my son who is 35. It is a very charming B & B type Hotel run by Diane and Clive. We had a warm welcome when we arrived which included a cup of tea always appreciated by the English. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel to anyone who is looking for a good quality B&B. The room we were in, a twin room, was very clean as was the adjoining en suite, because it is of the beaten track you do not get disturbed by passing trafic. The hosts enjoy a chat but are not overpowering and the breakfast we had certainly sent us on our way ready for the day ahead.

My boyfriend and I were in Torquay for one night in August. We were in town to see Van Morrison play and chose the Avron, based on the reviews we read here on Trip Advisor! We were not disappointed with our choice!

Peter and Susan were wonderful hosts. Our room was extremely clean and well appointed. The whole house appears to have been completely renovated and is very charming. We also enjoyed the breakfast and wished we could have stayed another day or two to explore this community.

The B & B is in a lovely residential neighborhood and approx. a ten minute walk from the harbour, downhill. We chose to take a taxi back up to the Avron after the concert but it is a walkable distance if you're ok with the hill.

The Avron is a lovely property - we would certainly stay there again and recommend it!

Having not stayed in Torquay before, family had recommended this B+B to us for our 2 night stay. We were 3 adults and a toddler and had booked two rooms at Avron House. We booked over the telephone and were then sent directions that were easy to follow .We were thrilled to find the location only a 10 minute walk from the main promanade.We arrived earlier than planned and on arrival we were given refreshments by Susan who made us feel very much at home. The building is a large Victorian house that has been renovated to a high standard. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. They provided us with a travel cot and high chair for our 20 month son, and catered for all his needs which was so unexpected and very much appreciated.Peter and Susan served a large breafast in their beautiful dining room. All our needs were catered for and their customer service was first class. We just wished we could have stayed for longer but will be returning next year!

Stayed at the Avron for three nights with my mum and two children (6 and 3). Rooms were absolutely spotless (I was in the family room which had a great layout, Mum had lovely single with brand new en-suite).

Peter and Susan were very welcoming and friendly. I'm not sure storytime and hide and seek are services always available but my children seemed to manage them!

Breakfasts were lovely - lots to choose from and wonderfully fresh.

I would stay at the Avron again and wish Peter and Susan well in their B&B adventure - they deserve it.
