This 9 bedroom hotel sits just 400 yards from the harbour front. Run by a very nice Nepalese couple who have only been in house for 3 weeks or so. The room we were allocated number 5 was a little small and facing the rear of the hotel over the service road overlooking the pub. ( no noise)The room facilities...

Great B & B we found by chance on the internet and is reasonably priced for Torquay we thought. It is run by a charming couple who had just taken over. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were great hosts. Included in the price was a full English breakfast which was a bellybuster. Also available was toast,...

We were warmly and cheerfully greeted on arrival and when we asked if we could be served breakfast half an hour earlier than the scheduled time, we were advised this was no problem. In fact breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. And so to our King Double Room. This was bright and airy, looking out onto the main...

Hi, Thank you for your kind review however regarding your comments about the mold in the bathroom. The bathroom is bleached regularly and the marks you are referring to are where the grout has been worn away and shows the side of the tiles which are terracotta colour. Each year we re grout the tiles and the cleaner cleans so...

I booked my elderly parents into the Palms Hotel for a weeks stay at the end of September after phoning to check on access and parking as at nearly 80 years and 85 years my parents are fit and active but not mountaineers! I was assured that they would have no problems with direct access to the hotel but would...

The hotel is as shown on the photos where it is clear it is up steps to the entrance, We did speak on the phone about access and we changed rooms so they could have the lowest floor possible. We also have on our web site an access statement and we state not for people with walking problems. We would...

The statement that car parking is available on site is literally true, but a bit misleading. There are two spaces immediately behind the hotel (in front, there is just the terraced garden and the road with double yellow lines) but when those spaces are taken (or if you have a longer than average car) you have to go up the...

We have stayed her several times and we have always been made to feel very welcome. The owners Judith and Graham are always happy to help and they are very friendly, we had our favourite room which is always very clean. Breakfast is really nice with a good variety of choice.

Lovely b&b ran by a lovely couple. Been to torquay for the last 4 years for a long weekend and this was the closest to the harbour being an easy 5 min stroll to everything. Nice clean room no 4 (4 poster bed) with a lovely outlook. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh and hot. Would deff go back one day.
