I visited with my partner and 3 friends, overall experience was amazing and worth every penny! We stayed in the cabins in the back garden and they were lovely and unique! The owner was lovely and welcoming, kitchen and toilets were spotless, even though the weekend we visited was cold and rainy the cabins were still warm, there was a...

Stayed here with my 2 boys aged 7 and 8. Could not fault a single thing. The room was very comfortable, slept really well, very quiet at night. Lovely garden to sit in. Everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. Ten minutes walk to the beach. The owner was very friendly and available at all times to...

Me and friends have stayed in this hotel/hostel many times and everytime we visit Torquay we will stay here. Its fantastic value for money, with rooms from 2-6 people so good for big parties. Rooms are colourful and spacious, bathrooms are outside the bedroom but there are many of them so i wouldnt exactly call them shared bathrooms. Clean rooms,...

We stayed in the log cabin for 1 night. It felt a bit like glamping but we loved it! Room was clean and bright, toilet and washbasin in another cabin/shed spotlessly clean. Gentle stroll to the seafront and great sitting in the garden with a glass of wine in the early evening

Le Papillon is a wonderful (and affordable) place to stay in Torquay that I highly recommend! The rooms are very well decorated, clean and cosy. The garden is lovely. The hostel is not so far away from the centre (15-20 min walking). Last but not least, the owner and the staff are very friendly. I would definitely come here again.

For this price you cannot find anything better! I would definitely recommend to all on a budget. We stayed in wooden cabins. They do have heating but it doesn't really work well so be prepared if you are going in April or so. We had our sleeping bags with us so we were fine. Toilets and showers are in the...

I enjoyed staying at this hostel and found the owner to be very friendly and accomodating. The other staff are very helpful and kind and the the little dog is my favourite. Lots of space to cook and a nice big garden to sit outside. The cabins are what makes it unique and perfect for the Spring and Summer months.

After looking into other bacpakers and BnB's I was very happy to find Le papillon. A clean quite warm and friendly environment with everything I needed including a sizeable kitchen with more than enough space to share with other guests. Pretty close to town and torre station made it ideal and i'll certainly be staying there again should I find...
