Great guest house. Well run with welcoming hosts. Stayed in one of the family rooms which was two adjoined. Ideal for us. Slightly away from the sea front but an easy 15 minutes walk. Will book again if we return to Torquay

Always stay here for an annual visit to Torbay and South Devon. Very reliable and in a quieter area, with easy access to roads, and to the seafront on foot. Reasonably close to Torquay railway station.

We stayed last year and delighted to return. This is an exceptional guest house, spotless, comfortable, choice of breakfast is amazing. How can they offer 11 yes 11 different fruits for breakfast and still make a living! Am worried that by giving such a good review I might not be able to book my return visit.

We were picked up from the railway station and returned at the end of the conference and few days holiday. The guest house is well situated and the room had been modernised in very good taste.The owners were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.
