Stayed here for the fourth time at the end of August, enjoying a Monday to Friday mid week break. Excellent service as always from Clive and Diane. Rooms were very comfortable, are stylish and appointed with quality fittings and as usual everything was spotlessly clean. Friendly advice about where to visit was given by Clive, usually as we munched the huge breakfast he had prepared [believe me when I say the Avron breakfast is simply the best!!!]

The hotel itself is a Victorian house in a very quiet residential area. I am a light sleeper and I have never had a disturbed night's sleep here. It is also very near Babbacombe Downs - beautiful and only a 10 minute stroll away - and about 15 minutes walk from Torquay town centre and the harbour area. There is ample parking outside which is free and is about the nearest you can get to the town centre without having to clock watch or worry about car parking charges.

I come down from London fairly regularly and it is simply the place to stay for me. I wouldn't want to go anywhere and neither would the members of my family. It is also very reassuring if you are travelling all that distance to know that you are going to stay in quality accommodation and be well looked after at your destination.

As you can see, I am a long term Avron Hotel aficionado but don't take my word for it, try it for yourself. I notice that on the TripAdvisor website there in not one critical or negative review; we can't all be wrong can we?

My tip is - go to the Avron and enjoy!!!

Room Tip: I've stayed in many of the rooms and they all share the same high standard so relax and book wit...

We recently enjoyed a great stay at the Avron Hotel. Good location, easy to walk to shops, Babbacombe and the harbour area. Lovely, clean accommodation with bright, sunny room. Great hospitality and dog friendly which was the main reason we chose this particular hotel originally. Excellent, freshly cooked breakfast, nothing too much trouble. Would definitely return.
In addition, we loved this part of Devon, a long weekend was not enough time!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are bright and airy.

From the moment you arrive until you have to depart you will receive a warm and friendly welcome from Diane and Clive. The Avron B & B is spotlessly clean and the rooms are all kept to a high standard breakfast is still the highlight with a choice which would be the envy of a 5 star hotel. If you want a relaxing stay in a B & B in Torquay then I would recommend you give this one a try you will not be disappointed.( This was our fourth visit)

A real gem! I have just returned from a week long stay at Avron B&B with my mum and her dog. Clive and Diane are attentive, friendly hosts and welcomed us with a pot of tea after our long journey. The rooms were modern, up to date, spotlessly clean and offered toiletries, mineral water, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, alarm clock, TV , a good supply of quality clothes hangers and dog treats! Breakfasts were superb, plenty of choice, with top ups of toast and tea offered. The lounge is peaceful and relaxing to enjoy a drink from the licensed bar in the evenings, where our dog was allowed to sit with us. Avron is centrally located between Babbacombe and Torquay in a residential area with free parking in the road outside. I would highly recommend this B&B for anyone visiting this area. We had a wonderful stay at Avron and hope to return soon.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here at Avron House back in 2012. The previous owners, Clive and Diane always cared for their guests and, on occasion, accompanying doggies. As from the start of 2014 the new owners, Lyn & Steve, have redecorated and re-furnished the breakfast room, replaced all the bed linen with Egyptian cotton and revised the pet policy. Although we no longer accept pets we will still provide our guests with a warm West Country welcome.

Stayed here with my wife for two nights and cant fault the place,the owners are really friendly and take time out to have a chat with you,we were offered a pot of tea as soon as we arrived then shown to our spotlessly clean room.Breakfast is excellent and there's plenty of choice,its only a ten minute walk downhill into town and approx fifteen minute walk to Babbacombe which was the only downside for us as we like to spend most of our time there but you can always get a taxi,we would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

We have just had our second stay at this lovely Torbay guest house.
The owners, Clive & Diane are very good hosts and made us and our little dog very welcome indeed. The guest rooms are very well equipt, warm and comfortable, and tastefully decorated.
After a long day, the quiet lounge is very relaxing and as they have a licensed bar there is no need to go out again if you don't want to.
We were allowed to eat our take away meal in the hotel dining room and all the necessary condiments, cutlery and dishes were provided and cleaned away for us. What more could you ask for?
The breakfast is also superb and is enough to keep you going all day long. can't wait for our next visit.

Room Tip: We had a lovely sunny view from our room at the front.
