Small hotel but in an outstanding location overlooking the sea. Close to shops, the Babbacombe theatre and cliff railway. However, it cannot be recommended for those with walking difficulties. There is no lift and the entrance is by way of steps with no rails and no ramp. Access to the restaurant is by way of a door from reception which...

Many thanks for your somewhat surprising review. From your comments I know who you are as I checked you in and served you myself, and I am surprised as you seemed so happy with everything during your one night stay to see a show at the theatre. As per your comments I can confirm that our reception desk is never...

We booked a table for Sunday Lunch in the restaurant. Very disappointing. Meat was tasteless, rest of food lukewarm. However my worst criticism was the size of the plate - small; the meat covered the plate then you had to build a food tower on top to get what you wanted to eat. Add to that the plates were cold!...

Babbacombe R, Owner at The Babbacombe Royal Hotel, responded to this review

Scatcat? Are you sure that you visited us? As you have reviewed us on an accommodation page for overnight hotel guests and not our carvery page I wonder if maybe you ate elsewhere? Your review also does not match the product that we serve? Our plates are 10inches in diameter and come from an electric plate warmer, so the plates...

Stayed in room 3, very loud fan noise coming from the kitchen until 11:30pm. Room was very hot however opening the window made the fan noise even louder.. Room was very outdated. Pillows on the bed were rock hard. Cushions were stained and unhygienic. We were told when checking in that our room was the only one without a sea...

Babbacombe R, Owner at The Babbacombe Royal Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Samantha We do not (and never have) hide the fact that room 3 our only standard non-view double suffers from some external noise and as our cheapest room is priced to reflect this. It is on all booking websites including our own within the rooms description. We always tell guests about it and we also always confirm the room...
