Brilliant hosts, fab food for breakfast, all we need in the clean and tidy room, more than some expensive hotels / guest houses we have stayed in. Nothing is too much trouble for them. When we mentioned that one of us was wheat intolerant ..... Not a problem, we were provided with Celiac diet. No quibble, it was as simple...

This is the 3rd year we have visited. It's like home from home. A very warm welcome. Breakfast is out of this world. As my 84 year old mother said Pauline isn't just a good cook,she's a bloody good cook. The main road that it is near is so quiet at night,that you would think you were in middle of...

We had a lovely stay at the Babbacombe Guest House. Room was adequate, with a wardrobe, small bedside cabinet on one side and dresser on the other side. Had a nice size mirror over the dresser and a full size mirror, which is really great. Hair dryer was great. Tea, coffee and milk etc available and kettle was cleaned regularly...

Dear Ppjones2014. Thank you for leaving such a great detailed review. We took a look at the shower in your room and replaced the holder. As we don't use them ourselves we didn't know this was an issue.

My partner and I spent a few days there and it was great. Tony and Pauline are great hosts, the breakfast was great and they were very attentive and friendly - they seem to like what they're doing. If I ever went back I would definitely consider staying at their lovely, clean, warm B&B again.

We enjoyed staying at this friendly and clean guesthouse. Pauline and Tony were great hosts and breakfast set us up for the day. A superb location meaning you don't need a car to visit the numerous attractions on the doorstep. We will return!
