We have just returned from a short break at this lovely hotel. The family who run it look after you very well. The food was excellent and if you wanted extra they were always bring round more. Their staff are really nice and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Would definitely return.

Spent Easter weekend here as part of a coach party. Whilst I agree that bedrooms and bathrooms are not the largest, however we had three good nights sleep and managed to keep clean! Food was good and we never had any cause to complain, and plenty of reason to compliment. Family run, with good, local and long serving staff, we...

This is a small hotel in the centre of Babbacombe. It is family run and has a friendly, family feel to it with lots of family photos dotted around. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. It is a small hotel and the rooms were fairly small but clean and the furniture was fine. There is not a vast choice...

This a small family run hotel. Yes the rooms are small, but that is fine. They are a lovely family and will do anything to make you stay enjoyable.

My wife and I had an amazing time as we joined a Highcliffe Holidays Coach trip "Turkey n Tinsel" week-end to this gem of a hotel.

Just returned from a Turkey & Tinsel break with Leons coaches, from the moment we arrived until the second we left nothing was to much trouble for the staff. We were a little bit disappointed with our room (size and arrangement) but as we were only sleeping and changing in it did not see the need to complain. The evening...
