We booked this B&B last minute on a whim for the bank holiday weekend, and what a great choice! We booked the family room as this was the only room left but it actually worked out well for me and my sister - she got the double bed and I got the bunk bed! Room was a nice size, bathroom...

I stayed here for 2 nights in early May. Tony and Pauline were very welcoming and most accommodating when my business trip didn't go according to plan. Everywhere was freshly decorated and very clean and tidy. Lots of power points in my room too which was unusual to find! Great to have on site parking too. Highly recommended!

We stayed here only two nights, and it was a good choice. The owners are a lovely couple, very helpful & friendly. I think most of the rooms are en-suite, the one we had on the ground floor was. The room was spotless, warm & comfortable, good shower and every thing worked, I thought the robes & slippers were a...

We had a lovely time, warm welcome from Pauline and Tony. We booked a twin room which was really nice and clean. The owners were very helpful and friendly, Tony helped us with our luggage to our room. I cannot fault the service, it was top mark. Breakfast was excellent, a lot of options. I definitely recommend it.

We decided to stay here again and we didn't regret it. It was a great and very comfortable stay. The owners made us feel welcome and they remembered us from last year which was nice. Clean rooms and massive breakfast, a lot to choose from. My girlfriend had buffet continental breakfast and had no room left for a cooked breakfast,...

I stayed here over the valentines weekend with my husband. Pauline and Tony were extremely friendly and helpful towards us. We especially enjoyed our cooked breakfast, they also helped us on places to visit while we was here. The room was comfortable and all items we needed was in the room. Thank you for contributing to our great weekend away...

Chatty host, but with subtle put-downs. "Oh well, I'm glad you didn't get the place you wanted". (We were in the area to look at a property). Breakfast portions small. If people asked for extra coffee/toast this was frowned upon. An "atmosphere" in dining area. Prices good. 2010.

It seems additionally strange for a review of this nature to be posted 11 months later. Babbacombe Guest House has held a...
