We are just about to leave after a 1 night stay. On arrival we were greated by the happy, friendly owner, we were early but were shown to our room straight away. We were upgraded to the garden suite which was true luxury, we decided to spend evening in our room as it was too good not to use. Enjoyed sitting in the big beautiful bath and watch tv. Breakfast was fantastic, my husband had a good quality full English whilst I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toast. Very much enjoyed our stay, would have liked to stay longer but they were fully booked. This guesthouse truely is wonderful and deserves being number 1 on trip advisor. Thanks.

The Somerville is an exceptional place to stay. We were lucky enough to have chosen this hotel by chance on a spur of the moment trip to Torquay years ago when Adam & Grant first took over.
We have been coming back year after year ever since. The guy's do an excellent job from the warm welcome to the 'nothings too much trouble' attitude they have.The location of the hotel is fabulous, just minutes from the town centre and all it's attractions, from the shops, restaurants, bars, boat trips etc. something for everyone to enjoy. If you are stuck for ideas on what to do or where to go Adam & Grant are spot on with their suggestions. We stayed in the Somerville suite this time, it's gorgeous, beautifully decorated, as are all their rooms. We can't give enough praise to the guy's and their team on the cleanliness, the delicious breakfast (so much choice) continental or cooked, the welcome, shall I go on? We were only here for 4 days this time, wish it was longer. Totally spoilt and pampered by them, can't wait to go back! Alan & Sharon Brown

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at The Somerville. We trawled through the web for hours to find the perfect place to stay and that is when we came across The Somerville, after reading all of the glowing reviews we decided to book our long weekend here.

We arrived very late on Friday evening, not that you would think it was late because of the friendly welcome that we received from the warm and very accommodating staff.

The Somerville was just perfect, from location to comfort, from the delicious breakfast to the unique decoration and flawless service. We would thoroughly recommend this place to friends and family and will most certainly stay here again.

Thank you so much for such an enjoyable stay.

Mr & Mrs Hayward

p.s. We stayed in the Garden Suite and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend the Garden Suite.

I had read all the good comment before we arrived at the Somerville and thought it couldnt be that good, but believe me it was what everyone said and more. We upgraded to the Garden suite and definitely worth it, pure luxury, lovely bath, with Telly at the end. The attention to detail is fantastic. From the jelly babies at side of your bed, from the restaurant recommendations, to the cookies and the fresh milk. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was amazing. Breakfast were very good, with a great selection. I cant recommend this hotel highly enough.
