Tusker Lodge is in a brilliant location. There are lots of restaurants nearby and it is only a short walk to the harbour and shops. Carole is a fabulous, friendly host who is very accommodating and cooks a smashing breakfast!

A excellent pace to stay close to all you want if visiting torquay. A short stay but well worth it the Tusker is friendly and gives more than you pay. Lovely rooms and a huge bed very comfortable. Would not hesitate to book there again
