GreenLeaders Bronze level
Adult only B&B offering quiet elevated position on one of Torquay's 7 hills, within a 5 minutes gentle sloped walk of Torquay harbour with its array of bars, restaurants and clubs and buses and ferries across the Bay. All rooms are spacious with en suites and all first floor rooms have sea views. These sea views are as a result of our elevated position, we do not claim to be seafront! There is also free off street parking for all guests. We are motorbike friendly with secure flat parking at the side of the house, and also offer use of our fresh water wash down and drying area for wet diving , sailing or motorbike gear. Due to the elevated position of The Redholme, guests with mobility issues may find the sloped driveway access to the house difficult. It also goes without saying that the return from the harbour to The Redholme is uphill. If you find walking uphill difficult then we suggest you stay elsewhere. Complaining later on a review site is bad form.

We have stayed a few times at The Redholme, so much so that Mel and Paul have become good friends. Their customer service and welcoming of their guests is second to none. Rooms are excellent and comfortable and breakfasts are great. Nothing s too much trouble and you must make

Thanks Barry. You and Denise are such valued Guests who we look forward to seeing at any time. I detect there are 'Overtones' and it will probably be 'That will be the day' when you stay anywhere else but with us! We love the Princess Theatre as much as much as you two, keep well both of you, hopefully see you soon. Happy New Year. Mel and Paul.

Ta Phil....hope enjoyed your stay with us, not many places have a Sea View, although the view is only over the Bay, we think it makes you feel you are very close to the sea, the Harbour and everything this great resort has on offer! The 5* comment.....don't set me off. We, at the outset ,five years ago, have totally disregarded this outdated, abused, and antiquated method of booking a B&B. We are not 'Star Rated' and never will be. We stand 100% behind what we offer to all our Guests, one visit, and you will return! Thank you both. Mel and Paul.

The levels of service , accommodation and cleanliness at Redholme is truly outstanding.The quality mentioned befits a 5* hotel.On top of this the price we paid almost made us feel guilty.Outstanding in all aspects.

Thankyou for this great review. We have deliberately not gone down the murky 'Star Rating' system. It is old fashioned, out of date and leaves it open to abuse by Hotel and B&B owners alike....one inspection a year? and the owners are always aware of when it will occur! it's not for us, we are reviewed here, and on another 'Booking' site for what we actually offer Guests, and not what a Hotel Inspector says you should have! Please return again, you are both very welcome. Thank you Mel and Paul.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay with Mel and Paul at The Redholme B&B. Our hosts went out of their way to give advice and tips on where to visit in the area and good restaurants to eat at which was really helpful as we did not know the area well. They were

Thanks to you Marie and Steven. We honestly really appreciate this type of review, with relevant comments that may make a prospective guest think....mmm I will try this non Star Rated B&B, rather than the rest at even more money! We give every Guest the best possible stay, and really love to meet people like you two. Hope to see you both again. Thanks Mel and Paul.
