Excellent experience. Marion was the perfect hostess. The room was luxurious with a great bathroom. Really appreciated the provided Badedas! Wifi was also very good. Watched a live Sky football stream with no problems. Good food, homemade whiskey marmalade - Yum.

Stayed 2 nights the beginning of April. Lovely warm welcome from the host, Marion. She made us feel very welcome. We were able to book in early which was great. Room was lovely, clean and had a nice size en- suite. The Charterhouse is beautifully situated in a lovely country lane but only 3 minutes walk from the sea front....

Stayed for 2 nights in March, 2013 on recommendations from Tripadvisor feedback. Would rate this very highly with lots of good points. The list is long, but firstly we were made to feel "at home" by our hosts Marion and Les. They could not have done more to make our stay any more enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable...

Just returned from a short 3 day break at The Charterhouse and can't recommend it enough. The enthusiastic and friendly welcome from Marion, the spotless and well appointed rooms and the excellent breakfasts with home-made breads, marmalades and chutneys together with local produce was delicious, all helping to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable. Look forward to returning for a further...

We stayed at the Charterhouse for 4 days over the Easter weekend and were not disappointed. The weather was SO cold, but the welcome was warm, and so was the accommodation. We stayed in the beautifully appointed Riveria room with its sea views, super-king sized  bed, big ensuite bathroom and fluffy bathrobes. Breakfasts were lovely, with a variety of freshly...

I was travelling on business with my wife and arrived fairly late. The welcome was friendly and the room was good. It's about a 20 minute walk to the centre of Torquay. The walk is almost flat and quite easy. Breakfast was good and included home-made bread and preserves.

My partner and I stayed at The Charter House Hotel and we really loved it. It is located close to a beautiful bay, and close to Cockingington a lovely thatched village, and is only a short walk or drive into the centre of Torquay harbour. It was a fantastic experience from arrival to departure. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated...
