Well appointed hotel with individual, unusual and tasteful decor giving atmosphere to each room. Friendly and humorous attention from hosts Elaine & Martyn with plenty on the table at breakfast. Good access to town centre and for seafront. Attractive period house in a quiet residential street. Looking forward to another visit, thank you.

A really great B & B, good size room and bathroom that was nicely decorated. Clean and very quiet and good to have off street parking included. Location close to lots of restaurants, pubs etc. and only a short walk to the waterfront. Friendly hosts and the added advantage of a bar area to relax in. Breakfast was also great...

Thank you for your review, much appreciated. We are ideally placed for both the seafront and the town and most guests do not use their cars once parked with us! We try out the local restaurants so that we can pass on personal recommendations. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

A great find and a fabulous B&B. We stayed for one night in the Provence suite to attend an event at the Grand. A warm welcome was extended by Martyn and Elaine on arrival with a beautiful cake to recover from the drive. The room was brilliant with space in abundance and tastefully decorated. The stay was finished off with...

We came for a few days break, found the hotel to be everything it advertised on trip advisor. Amazing room, quirky, very comfortable and spacious with our own sitting room which was a bonus. Martin was most helpful with restaurants, taxis and Elaine provided a superb breakfast.

We've just returned home after a Saturday night staying at the Hillcroft Boutique Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel which is located just off the main seafront in Torquay (great location). The rooms are very quirky and well decorated. The hosts really make you feel welcome and I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.
