Beautifully decorated rooms, amazingly comfortable beds and fresh home-cooked breakfasts together with personal touches such as home made cookies, good quality bath products and decent coffee in all bedrooms makes this the only place in Torquay we would ever stay. Thank you Adam and Grant for being such friendly and professional hosts yet again.

Deciding on a few days Autumn break, wee looked on the Interent at hotels. All we had in mind was 'south coast' and started to brows. We saw The Somerville, Torquay and we immediately attracted. We booked four nights and enjoyed excellents, a comfortable room beautifully appointed, with severall thoughtful touches; freshh milk, afternoon cookies, available fruit and up to date notes on restaurants and very friendly staff.

The Somerville is a great place to stay. We only stayed one night as we were only here to attend a lecture, but we wished we were staying longer. The owners are very friendly, extra helpful & run a great guesthouse.
I would rather stay somewhere like this than a big, impersonal hotel & I am sure the room quality & breakfast wouldn't be as good. The beds were very comfy & we had a good nights sleep, very quiet. There was every facility you could want in the room including freshly baked biscuits you could help yourself to from the fridge outside. The bathroom was extremely clean with good quality toiletries. The shower heat was a bit variable according to how many other people were using it, but this often happens. We were in the downstairs garden suite, so there was even a little courtyard to sit outside with a coffee.
The choice at breakfast was vey good, I particularly liked the fact that you could personalise it & choose any combination of cooked food that you liked.
Parking is also available here, so that is a bonus, saves looking around the town & saves money! There is also free wi-fi which worked very well.
All in all I couldn't fault it & we will definately be returning. Well done boys, an example to others!

Just returned from a wonderful 3 night break to Torquay where we struck gold. The Somerville was absolutely wonderful. The owners Adam and Grant have definitely done their homework and seem to know the exact ingredients for a perfect place to stay.

The whole hotel was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was so comfortable that if it wasn't for the breakfast I would have stayed in it all weekend.

The breakfast was beautifully cooked to order using fresh local ingredients. This set us up for the day until we returned each afternoon to the free home-baked cookies, which were delicious. The extra touches made all the difference to our stay and we will definitely be returning.

We stayed at this lovely hotel with family and friends for a family wedding and cannot recommend highly enough. The rooms were absolutely beautiful with every possible detail though of by the owners. The breakfasts were first class and the whole place had a lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be visiting again.
