We were highly fortunate to select Babbacombe Guest House for a delightful five night stay. Food, cleanliness and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. Top marks for a top team who were most courteous and very helpful during our vacation.

Thankyou Tony and Pauline for another lovely holiday with you. We look forward to seeing you next year because we would not want to stay anywhere else in Babbacombe. Beautiful, clean room, fluffy white towels and amazing food. We feel very fortunate to have found such a nice place to stay and Tony and Pauline are lovely people, kind, generous and nothing is ever too much trouble. See you in 2015. Can't wait.

We had a truly welcoming stay for our second visit - and it is fair to say that Pauline's breakfast is no fluke - it was amazing again, we didn't need lunch! We took the double room on the top floor which is wonderfully decorated and the restricted height was no issue for us. It's a perfect cosy little room. This time we left the car behind and walked across the road to the Babbacombe Downs and took a bus into town, which wasn't a problem. It was a perfect three night get-away. Thanks Tony & Pauline - See you again soon. Simon & Sophie

Had a lovely weeks stay at the Babbacombe Guest House, our third visit. We wouldn't go anywhere else because we know the quality of the breakfast and the excellent standard of the rooms is second to none. We have also enjoyed the hospitality of Pauline and Tony. Home from home! We will definitely be back next year or maybe sooner!

The owners, Tony and Pauline were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Lovely refurbished clean room with excellent en-suite. Little extras such as luxury toiletries and slippers and gowns. Great breakfast choice as well as full English. Will definitely stay here when we next visit the area. Already recommended it to friends and relatives.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good

We had a great stay with Tony and Pauline. The rooms were clean and tidy and the choice of breakfasts was amazing. The food was cooked beautifully and the tea just how I like it. They were very helpful regarding directions and places to visit. We would definity stay with them again. Thank you both.
