I took my Mum to the Charterhouse Hotel to celebrate her 80th birthday. We received a warm welcome, stayed in a beautiful room, enjoyed fantastic breakfasts and had a thoroughly wonderful time. Nothing is too much trouble for Marion and Les, and my food intolerances (gluten and lactose) were dealt with without any fuss at all. I'll definately be going...

The Charterhouse is in an excellent location in Torquay, close to Cockington Gardens, which is a beautiful setting as well. Les and Marion work very hard to make guests feel welcome and at home.

We had a lovely 4 day stay at the charterhouse staying in the Riviera room. Our hosts Marion & Les, couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Our large room was spotless with a large bathroom and a sea view. Breakfasts were wonderfully endless and full of homemade produce. We shall be back.
