Super place to stay in Torquay. The proprietor's were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast delicious. Room was clean and comfortable, and also spacious. Perfect for a family. Only one small issue was the shower water pressure.

Great guest house. Well run with welcoming hosts. Stayed in one of the family rooms which was two adjoined. Ideal for us. Slightly away from the sea front but an easy 15 minutes walk. Will book again if we return to Torquay

Always stay here for an annual visit to Torbay and South Devon. Very reliable and in a quieter area, with easy access to roads, and to the seafront on foot. Reasonably close to Torquay railway station.
