7 years our group of friends have stayed here. The hospitality that we receive by Tim and Sarah is more than 100%. The rooms are lovely and spotless and if you need anything you only have to ask. The breakfast is high quality with a cooked breakfast and a variety of cereals, fruit etc. So to sum up this B&B... More

I would like to thank the park guest house for the amazing customer service I received when I had to sadly cancel my trip due to unforseen circumstances... I will definitely be visiting the guest house as soon as I can make it down to Torquay.

Hosts Tim & Sarah were very welcoming. Arrived early, we asked if we could leave our car & walk into Torquay, this was not a problem. Our room was spacious, comfy with loads of hot water. Breakfast was freshly cooked with a good selection of cereals, juice & bread. Lovely location & will definitely stay again.

Lovely breakfast , room ok , would have been nice to have a bath before 11 , but wasn't allowed , without any explanation ! Would have liked to have sat for breakfast where I wanted to sit rather than regimented positions . Not everyone likes dogs either , a dog lovers mentality .

Thanks for the review. Just to clarify :- 1) As it's an old victorian house that was never designed for an en-suite in every room ALL the water is drawn from 1 water tank in the loft. This never causes a problem if everyone has a shower. We have one room with a bath and a shower and a polite... More

We recently had a four night stay in the Kingsize room (10) on the top floor. Lovely clean place and Tim and Sarah are a considerate couple. Breakfast was gorgeous with lots of variety.
