We had room 2 which was light, with double aspect windows and a brilliant shower room with a heated floor, so cosy. The bed was very comfortable and...

I have been using trip advisor for years but never felt compelled to review anything myself, Lanscombe house was worthy of my first....

Have stayed in Torquay Hotels for years but wanted a location close to family. Trip Adviser was correct in suggesting this lovely B&B. It was our first time in a B&B so not sure what to expect. Comfortable rooms, whisper quiet, breakfasts of choice and an honour bar that was ideal given the location. Next booking made already.

Recommendations for evening dining were perfect, as we made reservations early based on Lanscombe's web site. Room 7 was comfortable & quitet, although the shower was a...
