We visited Torquay for a short break and booked this B & B at very short notice. Vicky was extremely helpful when booking and was there to welcome us along with Steve. Although our room was small it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and set us up for the day. It would have been nice...

My partner and I stayed at the Melba hotel in August, we were delighted that the owners had a small blow-up bed with children's bedding set for our daughter to stay in the room with us, something we often have problems with when there are 3 of us, big thank you for that! We were greeted warmly by the owners...

We visited Torquay during August bank holiday and as you would expect Steve and Vicki had a full house. We were very impressed that even during this busy period our hosts did not deviate from providing the personal touch which makes you feel very comfortable and at home. The cleanliness of the room was immaculate and it included a good...

The couple who ran this house were very friendly, the breakfasts were adequate, However the car parking was horrendous, it was situated on a 1 in 2 gradient and was very awkward to park your car, if you managed to park you had to get up this steep slope to the hotel, then navigate 19 stairs to your room. As...

We are delighted that many of our guests regularly praise our breakfasts and are therefore reassured that they are far from merely “adequate”. We also cannot help having stairs – as do the majority of other Bed and Breakfast establishments. The car park is on a slope, but a 1 in 2 gradient is incorrect. We have had a number...

We chose this hotel as a last minute break having no idea really what to expect. What a lovely surprise we got. When we arrived we were met at the door by the owner Vicki, a very welcoming and friendly lady who then escorted us up to our room. This was a bright nice sized room which was immaculately clean...
