It's great to arrive at a guesthouse for the first time and immediately know you've stumbled upon a little gem amongst the many stones. You can tell from the moment your first greeted at the door that the owner(s) place a lot of pride in how they present themselves and the guesthouse to visitors. A note in the welcome book...

A warm welcome awaits you at this excellent B&B in Torquay. The house is beautiful and the breakfast is absolutely fabulous. Would definitely stay there again. Parking is free with a parking permit supplied by Dawn. Easy walk into the town.

Cannot recommend this guest house enough. Dawn and Dave were extremely good hosts. Nice to be able to take our dog with us as they take pets. Lovely clean and spacious family room. Great breakfast which filled us up for the day. Had parking permit so we could stay outside the accommodation. Short walk to the harbour and town centre....

Thank you for this wonderful review Tracy. David and I work hard to make a welcoming atmosphere and really enjoy meeting and chatting to people.

Thank you for this wonderful review Danielle. Ashleigh House is in an ideal location for anything that you want to do in Torquay, and further, as the bus stops are a mere 5 minute walk away. Having lived in Torquay for almost 25 years I have a degree of knowledge about the area although I do learn a lot from...

Not a bad word to say about this place. The location was great, within short walking distance to town and harbour (although be aware it is on a hill). Plenty of lovely nearby restaurants to choose from. The house is lovely, very clean, with very friendly and welcoming staff and of course the gorgeous dog Oscar who kept our children...

Had a last minute one night stay with my daughter. Parking voucher given on arrival. The family room (1 double, 1 single) was a good size and clean. Nice bedding. Little shower room en suite is ideal. Short downhill walk into the town/harbour, etc. Return uphill is fine. Great breakfast set us up for our second day of sightseeing and...

My husband and I stayed here with our two small children aged 6 and 3. We phoned Dawn (owner) to let her know about our check-in at 9.30pm but she still seemed somewhat annoyed by this.
