My girlfriend and I spent two nights at the Charterhouse and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners Les and Marion were so lovely - welcoming, friendly and really knew their stuff in terms of where to go around Torquay. We stayed in a wonderful room which was beautifully decorated and modern.

Thank you Les and Marion for a wonderful experience - worth the money for the breakfast alone!

Have just returned home from a most enjoyable four night break in Torquay. The Charterhouse proved to be a great choice for our accommodation, set in a lovely location, with easy walks into Cockington or Torquay centre. There is also a roomy on site car park. Marion and Les made us feel extremely welcome from the very minute we arrived. After our 3 hour journey, we very much appreciated the tea and home made flapjacks which were served to us in the lounge on our arrival. We were also given a map of the area by Les who went on to point out and mark on the map some local dog walks, as well as some dog friendly pubs in the area. We stayed in one of the two garden rooms in which dogs are permitted. The room has been refurbished and was immaculately clean and nicely decorated. It has a lovely en suite bathroom with a great double sized shower...big fluffy bath sheets are provided. The TV in our room was a modern flat screen type with intergrated freeview giving a very clear picture. I was also pleased that the free wi-fi allowed me to be able use my laptop in the room. A bit too cool to sit out during our stay, but I would imagine the garden and swimming pool would be very relaxing place to chill out during warmer weather. A very good selection is available at breakfast time. Other reviewers have mentioned the home made jams, marmalade and fresh home made bread on offer each morning.... I can confirm they are all very very yummy! The 'full english' Marion presented each morning were first class both in quality and quantity. Marion and Les are the ideal hosts and we can't wait to stay with them again.

Enjoyed a stay of 4 nights this visit. Stayed in a lovely room which had a new en suite shower room. The breakfasts are excellent, including beautiful home made breads on offer. The Charterhouse is a very comfortable, immaculate,safe place to stay with excellent hosts and is great value for money.

A lovely location and good value hotel with excellent breakfasts. Located at the "better end" of Torquay just 2 minutes walk from the sea front the hotel is in a quiet spot and is 10 minutes walk from the lovely thatched village of Cockington via the water meadows. The whole area is dog friendly with many of the cafes, pubs and inns accepting dogs. Lots of good walking in the vicinity - be prepared for a few hills! Marion and Les are particularly friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Dog friendly rooms (2) are on the ground floor and have exits directly into the garden area. Our roo...

Stayed for two nights on the weekend of February 11th/12th in the Riviera Room. Received a really warm welcome from Marion and Les, as well as advice about worthwhile coastal walks.
The room was spacious, comfortable and tastefully furnished; the ensuite bathroom, with bath and shower - likewise. We had good views of Torquay and the sea from the dual aspect windows. Choices for breakfast were plentiful, and included freshly baked home made bread and home made marmalade and chutney. The cooked breakfast was delicious. Certainly somewhere we wil return to.
