The whole hotel has been recently refurbished and they have done a great job, it is a modern place in what appears to be quite a traditional location (we had never visited Babbacombe before). The room...

I first stayed at this hotel back in 2012, before the renovation work. We originally stayed in the Captains Suite with it's own private rooftop terrace for just the two of us (this is now changed and is a terrace available to all residents). Some of the most amazing views over the bay of Torquay and the privacy was lovely....

Stayed at the Babbacombe Hotel with a gift voucher, booking the stay was easy with reception staff being very helpful. We stayed in the captain suite - it was large, big bathroom and clean. No complaints about the room or hotel. Breakfast was of a high standard too. Parking is awkward, with loading/ unloading at the back of the hotel...
