“A Great Stay!”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Babbacombe Hall is a great guest house offering a quiet and comfortable retreat. The whole hotel is classically decorated and the room was very comfortable and clean. The service was just impeccable!! The hosts really make you feel as part of their family and upon knowing that I had some issues with renting a car at the airport, they immediately helped out and offered me a number of solutions even though they had nothing to do with it. Location is also superb close to both the city center and a beautiful beach. The breakfast at the hotel was delicious as well. Highly recommended.

Even before we arrived at Babbacombe Hall Glyn had helped us find a place to eat out at on our wedding anniversary, thank you again for this Glyn! On our arrival we were met by the ever so friendly Glyn and offered a cup of tea. Whilst we sat drinking our tea Glyn took time to tell us about Babbacombe/Torquay and things we could see and do there during our visit. Our room was lovely and our breakfast delicious. We will definitley be back to Babbacombe and we'll definitely stay with Glyn and Aida again!

My husband and I stayed for a four night break. We had stayed here two years ago and the standard was just as high. Everywhere was spotless, the breakfasts were well presented and nothing was too much trouble for Glyn and Aida. The hotel is situated conveniently for local shops, places to eat and a good bus service nearby. We will certainly stay here again in the future.

My sister and I sadly had to make an unscheduled trip to Torquay after the death of our father. We took pot luck with the hotel, looking for convenience of location above everything. Our choice could not have been better . Glyn and Aida are superb hosts. They very quickly understood our situation and considerately made every accommodation they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible including allowing us to take over their personal lounge for one evening to meet and talk with the Minister. They were also able to accommodate further family members who came later for the funeral.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a traditional hotel with a sensitive service. Thankyou Glyn and Aida for masking what was a very sad trip into a more pleasant experience.

We stayed with Glynn & Aida for 2 nights and our stay was just delightful. We were upgraded immediately to suit my husband's needs and the welcome from Aida was warm and friendly she even made us a cup of tea as we enjoyed the garden by the pool. Glynn supplied helpful information on local attractions and recommendations for places to eat and after trying one he was spot on! Glynn and Aida provide an excellent service with a delicious breakfast each morning with all food locally sourced and freshly cooked. The hotel is clean,cosy and ideally situated. I would highly recommend Babbacombe Hall Hotel.
