Fantastic place to stay in a superb location in Torquay. Our room was perfect, huge bed, gorgeous roll top bath, White Company toiletries, robes, slipper and lovely refreshments. Cracking cooked breakfast. Peter and Helen were brilliant hosts. 10 out of 10!

On a recent visit to Torquay we booked to stay here, staff were great and the room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with a good selection on the menu.

This B&B was brilliant, my wife I booked it for a midweek break and we had wonderful time. It’s ideally located for Torquay town centre which was just 5 minutes away and Peter and Helen were terrific hosts. Our room was very nice, spotless and felt very comfortable indeed.
