A big thank you to Gerry and Sue for another great weeks stay in your home, as you said we are regulars now and nothing is ever to much. We were made to feel welcome from the booking of the room through to our departure. As we saw on a sign down there, arrive as strangers, leave as friends.

Had a fabulous time staying here!! Very friendly and accomodating owners, Susan and Gerry!! Breakfast was beautiful with plenty of choice. Gerry is a great cook and does not skimp on quality. The rooms were really clean and comfortable although my mum did find her bed a little springy, however this did not detract from a fab stay. Great location... More

Really pleasant, welcoming, caring and helpful hosts in Susan and Gerry. The guest house is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the breakfasts excellent. Well located for easy access to Torquay town, beaches and transport links. Tremendous value for money and somewhere I would certainly stay at again.
