We were greeted with a very warm welcome and a much needed pot of coffee. Room was spotless, very comfortable & beautifully furnished. Would certainly stay again and recommend to others. Breakfast was a delight as were our hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Location was idyllic & tranquil without being too far away from the beach & Torquay itself....
