the service was great as soon as we arrived tony can to the car asked if we would like any help with our lagguage.
The room was wonderful it had everything in it that you needed.
It is in a brillant location as we went to loads of places as it is central to loads of places and there is a nice walk to the town.
The best thing about the quest house is that tony and pauline are very welcoming and what every you need they get it for you for example if you asked for more tea ,coffee, sugar,milk, they would supply it for you even shower gel and shampoo.

Room Tip: double glazed windows so not much noise and if other guest make noise tony sorts its out straight aw...

We have been down to Torquay a few times to watch the Football match (we are Burton Albion supporters) and have stopped in a number of guest houses / B&B etc. The owners are very welcoming and friendly, the room immaculate and the breakfast simple, freshly-cooked and tasty. The guest house is in easy walking distance of the football ground and very close to Babbacombe Bay which is much nicer than the main seafront in Torquay. Hanley's Fish and Chip Restaurant is nearby and is excellent, there is a small Tesco store next door, some lovely shops and bars / restaurants nearby (The Buccaneer does nice Real Ales) and a theatre very close. Also a regular bus service into Torquay (£3.20 return). We couldn't have wished for more - reasonable price and no problems. We will return.

We would recommend and return to this hotel as its location is very good, the rooms were very clean and well set out, the people were very welcoming and the breakfast in the morning was excellent.

We parked at a friends house down the road so I can't comment on how much parking there was really. There is a bus stop across the road if you want to get into Torquay and theres a few pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops down the road if you need them.

The hotel itself is very clean and were on the top floor in a small double bed room which had enough space in for us both. There were tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits and chocolates and also a TV with remote which had Freeview.

The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was very clean, the sign on the wall stated that the shower curtain was changed after every guest left!

The breakfast was one of the best I've had at a hotel and if you didn't want a full English to go with your selection of cereals, juices, toast and fresh tea and coffee you could have had just a smaller portion of whatever you wanted.

All in all the hotel is highly recommendable and the people deseve credit for the way they run it....

Pauline & Tony make you feel welcome and put you at ease from the start.
The seafront is a Short walk from the Guest House, and there is ample car parking onsite.
We would recommed to anyone.

The service provided is first class - very friendly people - we were looked after very well. Thank you for an excellent breakfast - we just pigged out. The room was also excellent and beautifully presented. It was easy to reach everywhere - can even leave the car behind. Good local restaurants - even found pub to watch footy final.

Room Tip: Can recommend twin room
