    The guest house is very well kept, and my partner and I enjoyed a very comfortable stay here. Our room was well appointed, and the owners are fantastic, welcoming people. Great value! We will definitely go back.

    Thank you for your review and appreciate your comments. Most of our guests do enjoy the walk down to the sea front especially after a good breakfast. It would be lovely to see you both again in the future when you visit Torbay.
