Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Warm, welcoming and well- run, this is a lovely place to stay, Russell and Helen make everyone feel at home. The rooms are nicely decorated, well furnished and very clean. The hotel has a spacious lounge and cosy bar. The breakfast was delicious and the service excellent. It is in a quiet road with its own parking. There are lots of attractions and lovely countryside to visit in the surrounding areas. Many guests happily return year after year and, if you stay here, you will understand why.

What a great place to stay. Warm welcome from the owners. Immaculately clean and comfortable public and private rooms. Cosy bar with very reasonable prices and choices of chilled (or unchilled), bottled beers. Excellent breakfast. Convenient location to walk to beach, harbour and town and yet peaceful at night. Off-road parking. Astonishing value. Would stay again without any doubt at all.

Very nice guesthouse, the room I had was small but perfectly equipped and very clean.
We were allowed to check in early with no issue.
It's just over a mile from the centre of Torquay so quite a walk although there are bars shops etc nearer.
The breakfast was nice and service good.

You could do much worse than stay here in Torquay.

Me and my husband stayed for two nights. The room was very clean and, although a tad small had everything you can possibly need and free wi-fi. The bed was very confortable and we were offered free water and biscuits every day.
The breakfast is very well prepared with local food and to your liking. Good diversity too.
Nice location in relation to the centre of town. All in all, recommend it!

We stayed here overnight and it was great. The bed room was was well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Although the ensuite was a little small, it was clean and the shower had a really good flow. Helen prepared us a scrumptious and hearty breakfast. We would stay here again, and highly recommend it.

Possible the best Guest House we've ever stayed in. The owners were incredibly kind and friendly and provided a very welcoming enviroment. Our room was big, bright and spotless clean, the breakfast was also excellent. The house included a cozy lounge area and even a downstairs bar. Overall it was an amazing experience and we can't wait to be back!

Fantastic bed and breakfast. Spotless rooms and tastefully decorated. Excellent breakfast with a good variety of full English, fruit and cereals available. Hosts are very welcoming and make you feel at home. Would highly recommend! Great location. Cosy bar area - everything you would want from a bed and breakfast.
