After reading previous reviews, we booked this wonderful little B&B just a 20 minute walk from Torquay harbour and town. The low price was a real draw, and proved to be excellent value.
On arrival, we were greeted by Stuart who instantly made us feel welcome. Our room was perfectly adequate for our needs and included everything that you would expect including complimentary toilletries and biscuits. The bathroom was clean and the shower didn't go hot and cold like in some hotels I've stayed in! The only downsides on the room was that the lighting was not bright enough for my personal taste; however the bathroom lighting was great for doing my make up! Also, the decor was a little old-fashioned but it was by no means shabby or ill-kept. This did bother us at all. The room and bed linen was spotlessly clean.
As for breakfast, this was also a most enjoyable experience. Claire was the perfect host and she ensured that we had everything we could possibly want.We believe that she genuinely cared for the enjoyment of her guests; it wasn't just a show.The cooked breakfast was of an excellent standard.
Just a few tips whilst staying in Torquay- it is rather hilly and it is quite a strenuous walk from the town/harbour back to the hotel. However, taxis are cheap and reliable and there is a bus service right outside on the main road. If you want to walk off the excellent food in Torquay, however then this is fine!
I would highly recommend this guesthouse on every level. What it lacks in style it definitely makes up for in good old-fashioned hospitality and value. We will return- if only to talk to Claire about our shared love of cats!
