Paula and Ray were superb hosts. Breakfast was very nice and the rooms were extremely clean and what you would expect from a well run guest house. Well positioned with 10-15minute walk to beach, restaurants and bars. Absolutely no complaints and 5 stars Laraine & Adrian

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay with us. We looked long and hard to find the right location before buying in Torquay, and we agree it couldn't be more perfect for accessing the local area, without being too busy or noisy in the height of the season. Thanks for your comments on cleanliness and the...

Hotel was lovely and Paula and Ray go out of their way to make you feel at home. Nothing is too much bother for the owners and you go there as guests, but leave as friends. Rooms and service were great, as was the bar. Also, it is perfectly situated for visiting the surrounding area. We will definitely be returning.

Paula and Ray are perfect hosts - welcoming and so so friendly. The hotel is immaculate and very comfortable. The good wifi, television, power shower and on-site parking added extra comfort to our holiday. Would recommend to anyone visiting Torquay.

Stayed for 2 nights mid week at the end of August in a family room. Hosts were exceptionally helpful, particularly regarding local attractions, buses, etc. Lovely breakfast, comfortable beds and nicely decorated room. Minor points re the shower, did run hot and cold, and my son was disappointed that the hot chocolate and biscuits were not replenished on day two....

We stayed here for 5 nights and right from the beginning to the end of our holiday we found Ray and Paula a welcoming helpful couple. Our room was very comfortable especially the king size bed.

Thanks for ypur feedback, and room tip. Rooms to the back of the hotel are the quietest, although Falkland Road is not the busiest in Torquay, so traffic noise, especially overnight is fairly minmal.

Unfortunately we were able to stay only one night in Torquay...we could easily have stayed a week here. Ray and Paula were wonderful hosts and looked after us well. The cooked breakfast was superb. Ray also gave us some valuable advice when we left heading north...there were a number of traffic issues to avoid. We'll be back one day!
