Great location overlooking the bay, enhanced by a roof terrace perfect for a sundowner or two. Approx half the rooms have sea views and are worth the premium. Breakfasts are served downstairs in their cafe, We had some perfect tiny strawberries and blueberries to accompany the cereals,yoghurts etc, followed by eggs hollandaise.( in my case with a candle in as...

Under the front of the hotel is a lovely restaurant. Good choice of food & drink, a very relaxing little restaurant, has more of a bistro surroundings good place for lunch & dinner. Babbacombe is a lovely village with lots of hotels and a beautiful sea front and sea views.

We recently enjoyed a two night stay at this delightful hotel. The décor in all areas is of the very highest quality having been refurbished some 18 months ago. We had dinner on one evening which was very good and the breakfast was one of the best I've enjoyed with a good variety to cater for all tastes. The staff...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it. We had to decide whether to include on site parking or the beautiful terrace where you can dine and the terrace won! People do not usually have too much difficulty in finding free on road parking.

My wife and I plus our friends enjoyed an evening meal here recently. Menu you a little restrictive in terms of choice however the food served was to a very high standard albeit a little pricey owing to a seasonal hike in the prices in readiness for summer trade. Drinks also quite expensive and no draught beers . All in...

I stayed here for a night with my husband in The Clifftop Suite. We had a fantastic sea view and an amazing silver bed! The whole hotel has been recently refurbished and they have done a great job, it is a modern place in what appears to be quite a traditional location (we had never visited Babbacombe before). The room...

I first stayed at this hotel back in 2012, before the renovation work. We originally stayed in the Captains Suite with it's own private rooftop terrace for just the two of us (this is now changed and is a terrace available to all residents). Some of the most amazing views over the bay of Torquay and the privacy was lovely....

Stayed in a suit which has an additional bedroom with2 single beds, for just one night on the way down to Cornwall.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do have loading bays to the rear of the hotel where you can pull in so you aren't on the double yellows with less steps to the rear, I'm sorry you weren't aware of this at the time. Glad to hear everything else was good and we hope to...
