“Our First Family Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

This was our first family holiday of the year with our 8-month old boy and our first time visiting Torquay. We couldn't have asked for better hosts (Matt & Lissanne), who contacted us before our stay to see if there was anything they could do prior to our arrival to make our stay more comfortable for us and our son (they went to the effort of setting up a travel cot with bedding and a pillow in our room before we arrived & had a highchair ready and waiting at breakfast each morning!). My girlfriend had just turned 24 and we were welcomed by a bottle of Champagne, a bunch of lovely flowers, a balloon and birthday card! Amazing! We found it hard to believe they had only been running the Cleveland for 2 weeks!! They were always chatty, helpful and good with directions, which was a great bonus as we didn't know the area at all. Breakfast was great, with plenty of choice (full english, boiled/poached/scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice and delicious coffee!). Our room (5) was spacious, clean and quiet. Location of the Cleveland was about a 15 minute walk to the harbour where all the restaurants and bars can be found. All-in-all, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely come again when we return to Torquay and would recommend this beautiful guest house to anyone. Thank you!
