This is our second stay in 2 years and we have enjoyed it both times. Mark and Tracy are very friendly and the breakfasts are great. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the hotel is well situated. Recommended.

Absolutely loved staying here, in a perfect location, so quiet and peaceful yet just down the road from plenty of bars and restaurants, everything about the stay was spot on. Breakfast was delicious, room spotless and clean, hosts were fantastic! Would definitely stay again!

We had a wonderful time here. Very clean rooms and well appointed. Fantastic breakfast and we were well looked after. My mother is now disabled and the owners really made us feel at home. Babbacombe is very nice with plenty of places to eat and very welcoming. Not cheap and worth every penny.

Fantastic location and under very friendly management/ ownership. Great value for money which included the 10 out of 10 breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble including the repatriation of my wallet that I left in the bedside cabinet. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay.
