We stayed for two nights on a weekend in August. The welcome from Julia was very friendly and a hot drink with cake and biscuits was supplied while we booked in. We stayed in the only downstairs room which was very clean and comfortable. It was set up as a double but could be used as a twin. The room had ample space but might be a little cramped if the beds were separated. All the facilities that you would need from a B&B room were there and if something else was needed I am sure the hosts would probably have it or could get it for you. Only slight comment would be as it was hot we left the windows open and because we were close to the road it was a little noisy (I will try an upstairs room next time). The breakfast room was very clean and comfortable but could do with a little de clutter. Reason is that they just want to try and make sure everything is available to hand for you but sometimes less is more if you know what I mean (ironing board ?). You could always ask for something if it was not there. The breakfast was really nice with plenty of choice and catered for individuals that might need that something different. Again if you have a special need you only needed to ask them or let them know before hand. Parking is ample although if you go out and leave your car there you have to leave your keys behind in case they need to move them around (I do not have a problem with this). I would definitely recommend a stay at Garway lodge as you wont be disappointed with the comfort service you receive. I will definitely be going back if I have a stay in Torquay again. Thank you Julia and Paul.

Room Tip: They all look comfortable and clean.

Thank you for leaving a lovely review, and you would be very welcome if you visit Torquay again.

We have two rooms that can be set up as twin beds, the super-kingsize bed is a Zip and Link, which means we can separate them, We move one bed against the wall, and the bedside cabinet between the beds.

We also have 2 fans available if you do not like the windows open, so far we have only had 3 guests use these.

I have take note of your comments re the Breakfast room, and removed the magazines we had for guests to read. Although, the Ironing Board does need to stay in there, It is now laying down behind the Sofa, instead of standing up. As we are a guest house, there are times we are not available, and in the past guests have needed the ironing board while we were out. We are also going to be re-decorating the breakfast room, so hopefully it will look nicer when you visit next time.

With regards to the parking, we ask guest who are not using their cars to park at the front, as they are not blocking anyone, but if you have parked behind another car and you go out without your car, we may need to move it. This is the only time we ask you to leave your keys in your room, we do ask your permission first.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip, and we look forward to seeing you again

Take care

Julia and Paul

We stayed at Garway Lodge for one night in July 2014 in the Chocolate Room. Julia and Paul were very friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside. We were treated to tea and cakes when we arrived, as well as helpful tourist information including maps and taxi numbers. The room was lovely and very spacious and clean, breakfast was wonderful! Julia and Paul add their own unique touches to their business, and we'd definitely stay there again. Thanks so much to both of you for a wonderful experience, Sue and Tracy, Gosport.

Room Tip: Chocolate room is on the ground floor and easily accessible. Can be used either as a twin or double room.

We spent 1 night at the Garway hotel last weekend July 26th 2014. We were greeted by Julia and offered tea, cakes and biscuits but she checked to make sure it was OK to bring them out as I am diabetic, which was very kind. We were told all about Torquay, where to catch buses and where to eat. We were given maps and information that we needed. We were then shown to our room which was lovely. It was clean, a nice big bed and a lovely bathroom. As an extra touch they had brought us some roses which just happened to be the same colour as we had when we got married and some diabetic chocolates for our ruby anniversary which we had been celebrating. At breakfast there was a good choice including scrambled eggs and smoked salmon along with the traditional breakfast. It was all freshly cooked. There was plenty of parking and nothing was too much trouble. Will defiantly stay here again. Thank you both for a lovely stay. Sally and Brian

We have just spent a night at Garway Lodge in July 2014. The chocolate room was clean, spacious, with a nice clean bathroom. very fast free internet. Julia and Paul were so nice and warm. We arrived earlier then expected and were treated to coffee and cakes, and immediately got explanation concerning touring around the area, Paul even drew us maps, and gave us hints concerning the roads etc. There is parking available. Breakfast was great with an nice fresh fruit salad various cereals and traditional English breakfast as well. Julia served several types of gluten free cereals and cookies, which actually shows you how considerate she is... and when she heard I needed GF food she immediately brought GF cookies to our room. Thank You Julia. Dorit & Simon, Israel.

Just stayed here one night but really loved it, one of the best b&b's we have ever stayed in. Our room was very well equipped and very comfortable, there are lots of little touches you do not find in other b&b's, the owners will put themselves out to ensure your stay is comfortable and you have everything you need. Breakfast was lovely the menu was the best I have seen, if there was anything missing I would be very surprised,something for everyone. Would definately go back.
