Beautiful room, clean and comfy. Excellent breakfast, cosy bar area and great hosts. The hotel is in walking distance to the harbour and centre with lots of places to eat. Great stay, will definitely come back.

We arrived late afternoon on Thursday to be greeted with coffee and homemade cake. Martyn was...

Elaine and Martyn are extremely welcoming hosts. We arrived for check-in very early and we were warmly welcomed. They offered hot drink and cake. On check in Martyn talked us through a map of Torquay with places to eat, drink and visit. We stayed in the Tuscany room which was beautifully decorated and spacious. Breakfast was absolutely delicious with fresh...

What impressed me most about this place is the way the owners Martin and Elaine put themselves out to accommodate our needs, providing us with some breakfast at dawn and a key to the back door to get out, as well as a hand drawn map to ensure we got to the railway station in the most convenient way possible....
