5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

Hi Mark And Tracey & Michael I would like to start bye saying thank you, my Room was cleaned on a daily basis Very clean and always had a nice fresh towels and tea and coffee was always full my Breakfast requirements was taken on arrival and breakfast was cooked to a high standard, one of the things I had was a good breakfast sausages and eggs and bacon and there is more to choose from if you like which is a good thing and the owners are very friendly and welcoming, and the accommodation is extremely comfortable and good value for money. There was no noise at night so I had a great sleep and the guesthouse is very close to the local shops, pubs etc. I will be coming back here, I have recommended it to family and friends already and I will add, nothing was to much trouble. Would I visit again Yes thank again Mark

Exceptional guest house, fantastic proprieters, immaculate surroundings. It really is a fantastic place to stay and veryconvenient location for all that Babbacombe and Torbay have to offer.
Stayed her twice this year what more is their to say.
I would highly recommend to couples and families alike having recently visited with my wife, daughter, son in law and 2 grand children.

Room Tip: All rooms are of an equal high standard

We went as a family group ( 3 rooms) at the end of October and found this guest house to be very nice. The owners Tracy & Mark made us all very welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing seemed too much trouble. Mark even offered to collect my brother and his wife from the railway station if they go there again as they do not drive. Top marks for customer service here !

The breakfast was perfectly prepared to even my exacting standards ( fussy ) with well done bason and soft runny eggs ( thats how like it !
The romms are very clean , comfortable and are as you would expect from this type of guest house of this age. Tea & Coffee in rooms with a flat screen TV. Drinks available from the bar.
Very close to cliff railway and beach, shops , banks , pubs, cafes etc.
al in all a very pleasant stay even the weather in October turned out nice.
As a guest house of this genre it comes well recommended by us.

Couldn't do enough for us, immaculate, comfortable room, great facilities, great quality breakfast and choice. Would recommend and will be returning. A great location as 5 min stroll to Babbacombe and 1/2 he walk to Torquay harbour. Taxi fare reasonable to Torquay.

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.
