“Our First Choice in Torquay”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

We have stayed at the Aveland House a few times now and its high standard has always been maintaned. The food is good the rooms always clean and from the moment you arrive nothing is too much trouble for Jacqui and David. The location of the Hotel is ideal for us with St Mary Church and Babbacombe close by and the local bus routes into Torquay shopping centres

I received a warm welcome and was very impressed with the standard of accommodation, meals and service where attention was paid to detail. I plan on staying at Aveland House again when visiting Torquay.

This was my second stay at Aveland House and was just as enjoyable as the first time. I agree that the owners could not be more welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is very clean and the breakfasts are excellent with plenty of choice. The hotel is in a very quiet location but within easy waiking distance to shops, restaurants and the beautiful Babbacombe bay.

A request in June of a travel agency to find us September stays with evening meal facility near Taunton & Exeter had produced no results by 10 September. My search of hotels.com turned up Aveland House, which was all & more than we could ever have expected at such short notice. since we were three & a single room was there to be had. The result was a splendid, restful stay of six nights, in clean, comfortable rooms, with excellent breakfasts & delicious evening meals. Jacqui, our hostess, & her husband, David, were always solicitous for our comfort & pleasure, and never failed to meet our requests. We wished we could have stayed longer. for we came away wholly refreshed & rested. No television in the bedroom—what a blessing to be free from that time-waster! - and the sets in the lounges were all that one needed. I'd recommend Aveland House to anyone who wanted a holiday of freedom with care

I have just spent an enjoyable week at Aveland House despite the very wet weather. Being a Coeliac I have to follow a strict gluten-free diet and Jacqui met all my food needs very well, with an excellent selection of good things to eat. The accommodation was spotless. Although I drove to the Aveland House by car I didn't use it all the time. The bus stop was only about a 6 minute walk away. I was on the second floor, and as I have Coronary Heart Disease the stairs were a bit of a trial, however if I return again Jacqui said she would allocate a first floor room to me. I hope to return again next year in the Spring.

I didn't think it would be possible for Jacqui and David to be more welcoming but this time they surpassed themselves. As returning guests it was lovely to be greeted with a cup of tea and a bit of a chat after our 6 hour drive from Kent. Always happy to offer their local knowledge and directions to the point of David producing a map to Bovey Tracey even though I didn't even ask for one. It's the little things that matter and Jacqui and David can always find time to provide those little touches.

We were given room 8 at the front of the house which was absolutely perfect for our 2 night stay. Wonderfully clean, with crisp white bed linen and the tea and coffee and bathroom facilities fully stocked. Breakfast was super with a wide range to choose from including locally produced bacon, sausages, eggs and more.

Aveland House is ideally placed to explore Babbacombe, Oddicombe and St. Marychurch, is only a short trip away from Torquay town centre and is the best place to stay if you are travelling football fan off to Plainmoor.

This really is a wonderful place to stay run by a fabulous couple. After 4 visits I can honestly say that there is nothing that I would fault. Keep up the good work Jacqui and David (and family). See you soon.

We stayed in this B&B in September. The reason we ended up here was because we'd had such a bad experince at the Torquay Travelodge and we were trying to find somewhere to stay for our second night. Luckily Aveland house had a family room that hadn't been booked. The owners immediately welcomed us in and because of our bad night in the Travelodge they invited us to have a look at the rooms before we booked.
This B&B is absolutley spotless, very clean and tidy which is just what you want when you are on a family break. Nothing was too much trouble from the owners. There wasn't a TV in our room but there is a TV room downstairs in the B&B.
The owners even made sure they spoke to our children and remembered their names. They also checked with us what we usually ate for breakfast. They gave us information about the area and where we could visit with the children.
The breakfast was excellent. All the sausages, bacon and eggs are sourced locally and are absolutely delicious. We would definitely consider using this hotel again in the future.

A big thank you to the owners that rescued our weekend and made our stay comfortable and relaxing! Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: The family room had a double bed and a bunk bed
