We arrived late due to bad weather but a pot of tea welcomed us as soon as we arrived. The breakfast was superb beautifully cooked and we left with full bellies we...

Going to a place I love (Torquay) means that everything has to be right, otherwise it spoils the whole time away. So returning to the Abberley is a must. When you arrive you are treated like an old friend, the kettles on, and you just feel at home. During my previous four stays here, I have got to know Jackie...

We are a small family run guest house, and our other reviews say how friendly and helpful we are and they come from all age groups. I could understand the comment ‘worst hospitality ever’ if you were dumped in your room, it was dirty, bedding and towels not clean, and I ignored you every time I saw you; but I...

I feel a little ashamed that I haven't written a review of this excellent guest house before. We have stayed at The Abberley Guest House many times over the years, and the first thing I must say is that the standard that Jackie has set has never diminished (if anything it has progressively improved) - it was brilliant the first...

Stayed here while on a walking holiday and greeted with a cup of tea and a warm welcome by landlady Jackie. Nothing was too much trouble - suggestions for the evening, a map and directions into town and probably the best breakfast of the 6 days we were on the coastal path. The Buccaneer pub on the seafront is a...

From the moment we were greeted at the door to the moment Jackie ( the owner) waved us a safe journey home, the stay at Abberley Guest House was excellent.

Thank you for your comments. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. We are known for our breakfast. Just for the record, the only part of our breakfast we fry would be an egg, the rest being grilled or cooked in the oven. We hope to see you again some time
