“Tip Top in Torquay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

A great fun and interesting place to stay in Torquay in a good location, close to the town center but far enough away to be quiet and restful.

This guest house is an eclectic mix of styles which makes it quite unique in our experience. The rooms are very clean and fitted out well and seem ample for most needs. The garden is amazing and the swimming pool a very welcome touch :)

Paul and Linda run the establishment with a certain style and flair which makes it a fun and welcoming place to stay. The breakfast is a treat with a great selection and the hot food was cooked to perfection and everything seemed very fresh indeed.

Highly recommended and I'm sure we will return again in the near future.

Many thanks from Paul and Sarah

Room Tip: Upgrade to best rooms if you can but ours was a standard room and it was very nice indeed so not too...

Well looked after by Paul and Linda on arrival, this carried on by Rob who was stand in host for the weekend. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. Plent of space to sit outside and enjoy the sun, like being in a tropical garden.

Can't add to other reviews. Would have preferred a view of the gardens instead of the car park, but the room was great and the welcome and service second to none. Would recommend unconditionally. Thank you Paul for pretending you know nothing about computers, made me feel needed and helpful.
We would certainly return if we choose to visit Torquay again. Thanks.

As per all the reviews, Cary Court is wonderful, Paul and Linda are great hosts , cannot do enough to make sure your break however short or long , a happy relaxing one. The room was great , very clean and well maintained., Gardens and pool very good. The breakfast was first class. Would recommend this hotel to anyone . The hill is a challenge but keeps you fit., Thanks Linda and Paul for making the stay so pleasurable. You are 2 lovely people.

- Outstanding service from the charming hosts Linda and Paul. I've visited some of London's best hotels and restaurants including the Ritz and Linda and Paul have got the balance between friendliness and professionalism just right.

- Beautifully kept, generously proportioned, en suite room, with solid period furniture and fittings.

- Excellent standards of cleanliness. 

- Invaluable advice on where to visit in the local area and wider Devon and how to get there - as this was our first visit to Devon it was all the more useful. Their advice meant that we got to enjoy the beauty of Dartmoor!

- Delicious, generous breakfast, again with friendly, professional service.  We loved the full english and the salmon, cream cheese bagel and enjoyed copious amounts of tea and orange juice.

- Convenient, free, safe parking.

- Very well located, a short walk to the harbour but away from the hectic centre. 

- Stunning family house with exceptional facilities including a sub-tropical garden with carp pond and a heated pool, a cosy snug, elegant living room and even a chaise longue and four poster bed in our bedroom. Also appreciated the BYO bar.

- Overall an absolutely wonderful stay, can't recommend highly enough! 5*

Honestly can't think of anything we didn't like. Cary Court is a delight to stay in. You feel relaxed and genuinely welcome. Wish we'd stayed longer to make full use of the facilities and visit more of Devon. We'll be back! Thank you Paul and Linda.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mediterranean room which was wonderful!

Just got back home from a 3night break at the Cary Court Hotel. This has got to be one of, if not the best small hotels in Torquay. The major selling points are as follows :-

Quiet location,

Beautifully maintained bedrooms,(we had a four poster),

A rear garden with amazing plants and a lovely veranda to relax on,

Brilliant breakfast ( juice, fruit, cereals, and full English with endless beverages).

Lovely lounge and conservatory to relax in.

"Bring your own" bar.

Fantastically warm hosts Linda and Paul who made it so special.

10/10.

A big thank you from Adrian and Elaine

.

Room Tip: We had the Mediterranean Sea but all the rooms look great.
