“Faultless break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We have just returned from a weekend break at the ' Babbacombe Palms '.
Mark & Tracey were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.
Food was great and plenty of it.
Room was spotless and very comfortable.
We will definitely be returning !
Thanks to Mark, Tracey & Michael.

We stayed here overnight for a school reunion. Couldn't fault it, the place was spotlessly clean, room very spacious and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Great breakfast - really set us up for the day!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a fabulous time. Our twin room was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Mark, Tracey and Michael were very helpful and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was delicious and there was a choice of dishes. Our room was cleaned and beds made every day which I hadn't ever got from other guest houses I've stayed in. We parked the car and didn't move it during our stay as everything is in walking distance or there is a local bus service at the end of the road.
Torquay is 6 minutes away on the bus. There are beaches in walking distance and some fab places to eat along the seafront.
Thank you mark , Tracy and Michael we will definitely be booking for next year.

Enjoyed three nights at Babbacombe Palms, couldn't fault it. The room was lovely and spotless, and was cleaned daily which, in our experience, is not always the norm for a short stay in a guest house, but was much appreciated. Tracy, Mark and Michael were excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for us. Perfect location - Babbacombe and Oddicombe beach and the shops in St Marychurch within a few minutes walk, Local bus service running to and from Torquay (and other places), which we used to return to Babbacombe after walking the 7 mile coastal path to Torquay. The cooked breakfasts were lovely and very filling, a great start to the day. Only wish we could have stayed longer, We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will certainly recommend it to our friends and family and look forward to returning ourselves. Thank you

Thank you Tracey, mark & michael. You should be exteremly proud of your wonderful B&B. The rooms were very well decorated and kept exteremly clean. The cooked breakfasts were to die for and certainly set you up for the day. Nothing was to much trouble for Tracey, Mark & Micheal, they were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. This B&B is located in an ideal spot for Torquay, with the bus stop across the road, also within walking distance to Babbacombe Model Village, Bygones and the pretty little shops in St Maryschurch. Babbacombe Downs is in easy walking distance with the cliff railway taking you down to the beach. Along the downs there are pleanty of places to choose from for lunch, dinner, a snack or just a quite drink. You would be mad not to check out the Babbacombe Palms, we certainly will go back.

Thanks Tracey, Marc & Michael for a great stay--we felt we were made to feel part of this loving family and nothing was any trouble for them, the room was fantastic for us and our son Ciaran settled in straight away it was very peaceful at night which was wonderful.
Cleaned daily and good quality décor and always fresh linen when you returned from your trip out.
The sea-front is just a couple of minutes away, Busses run all the time to Torquay or other destinations so you can do what ever the little ones want and enjoy.
We took a ferry as well to Brixham which was great fun for all and is also a place of great fun for all the family with crab fishing and other activities.
There are several things I will miss especially the breakfast which was always hot and to a very high standard, accommodation was very comfortable and we thought was great value for money.
We walked a lot to take in the views and atmosphere which we fully enjoyed.
We will recommend this to all and we made our minds up to stay here next year for our holidays as so many great memories.
Once again thank you for such a kind and friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: Rooms are of high Quality so you should be comfortable in any.
