Everything about the hotel is perfect for a mini break. Staff were friendly, the food was delicious and the room was just right. Being a risk assessor, my only concern was a coach parked behind the fire door on the stage and blocking any emergency that may have arisen.

Stayed at The Babbacombe Hotel for a Turkey & Tinsel a party of seven and we could not find fault with anything. The staff were friendly, helpful always smiling and nothing was to much trouble. Food was always hot and a good choice of menu. Nightly entertainment was excellent. We would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a friendly hotel with good food and entertainment you could not go wrong with booking here.

My husband and I stayed here for three days with five other members of our family. The hotel was well presented, clean and tidy. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. I can only praise the staff for their dedicated service in all areas, bars, restaurant, coffee lounge. Any requests were dealt with efficiently. The food was delicious and I personally loved the freshly made slow cooked pies. Babbacombe Hotel is in a prime spot overlooking Lyme Bay and I would highly recommend it.

I recently had a four night stay with Middletons Tours at the Babbacombe Hotel. We was thoroughly impressed with the hotel, the food & the staff. We went away happy & have told many friends to stay at this venue because everything was just how we wanted it. Thanks again for a good week.

Just on the way home from a four night stay at the Babbacombe Hotel and can’t fault this hotel. Great staff, fabulous food and spotless room with a comfortable bed and great views. Wonderful selection to choose from at breakfast from a full English to cereals, fruit, porridge and yogurts.Will definitely return here! Fabulous!

I saw the owners reply to a one star review on this site, a few months ago. It was great to see a hotel standing up for itself rather than the grovelling replies hotel owners often give to moaning guests. We'll said Mr Powis. I totally agree with all of the 5 star reviews. Fantastic staff throughout all areas of the hotel. Good buffet menus at breakfast and evening meals. Wonderful location with stunning views and the upgrade to balcony with sea view worth the extra. The evening entertainment was better than expected with a knock out first night by the entertainer Simon Rees. A Stagecoach bus stop is only a few minutes walk from the hotel and the Torbay Day Rider ticket is a bargain for exploring Torquay, Brixham and Paignton. £5 all day travel per adult or if in a group of up to 5 ask for the Group Rider, £11 for everyone travelling (or £10 on the app). We met lovely people from South Wales and Sheffield and would certainly stay at the Babbacombe Hotel again.

Just returned from a coach trip with GB Tours, lovely hotel, single room with walk in shower perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean. Breakfast and Dinner where fantastic spoiled for choice at both. The entertainment each evening was excellent especially Friday with Simon Rees what an entertainer we danced and laughed the whole evening, well done to him. The whole of the staff are very friendly and always a smile for you. Well done, we will return.

We came down with Middletons Tours on monday 12 September until the friday. This was our second visit the other being New Year. Our room number 60 was lovely and we loved the balcony. Staff were excellent, very friendly & courteous. The food was amazing, loved your Full English every morning. We finally got the knack of the troublesome lock to our room, but that didnt spoil our stay with you. Keep up the good work guys😀🙏 With our best wishes Paul & Alison Keightley
