A long weekend in this perfectly decorated boutique hotel was had. Babbacombe is a picturesque cliff top town. The weather was beautiful and the walks just lovely. The hotel has wonderful views overlooking the sea and hills from the front. We upgraded to a sea view room which was bright and spacious. The hotel is decorated in cool and clean...

WOW, what a beautiful hotel this is. Intercom to access the hotel (even during the day so made you feel very safe). A very warm welcome from the receptionist, who showed us to our rooms. Our friends where in Room 4 & we had The Catains Suite. Both rooms were tastefully decorated, with the usual coffee/tea facilities. Bathroom well equipped...

We ate in the bistro cafe for lunch, afternoon tea and breakfast the following morning. The food each time was outstanding and very reasonably priced.

Brilliant, attentive and chatty staff. Good food that was tasty and well presented. Could not fault anything, nice relaxed dining. Softshell crab, ham hock terrine followed by confit duck and a good dessert 'strawberry glory' was well recommend by the friendly waitress :-)

Thank you for your comments. Your groupon voucher meant that your evening meal was at a reduced rate. We still welcome all guests the same way and offer 6 different main courses on our set menu, it can sometimes be overlooked by guests that the option of steak is a small extra charge. We clearly show that steaks are available...

You chose to book a suite rather than a bedroom, which is a little more expensive. Like every hotel; we close off the 2nd bedroom if there are only two guests in a suite, so there is no need to mention it. We also give an automatic £50 cost reduction which you received. If any guest is unhappy with their...

Also it had a separate bedroom which also had a tv. Beds were very comfortable. It is very spacious with a lovely bathroom...

After a day out in Torquay we returned to our hotel in the beautiful Babbacombe Bay area and my daughter and partner texted to say they were in this lovely bistro having a drink and to join them. It was so relaxing in there and although we hadn't booked for dinner they were so accommodating and let us keep the...
