Stayed for 2 nights in March, 2013 on recommendations from Tripadvisor feedback. Would rate this very highly with lots of good points. The list is long, but firstly we were made to feel "at home" by our hosts Marion and Les. They could not have done more to make our stay any more enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable...

Just returned from a short 3 day break at The Charterhouse and can't recommend it enough. The enthusiastic and friendly welcome from Marion, the spotless and well appointed rooms and the excellent breakfasts with home-made breads, marmalades and chutneys together with local produce was delicious, all helping to make our stay thoroughly enjoyable. Look forward to returning for a further...

We stayed at the Charterhouse for 3 days after Easter and despite the very cold weather outside received a very warm welcome from Marion and Les. The room was clean and warm and the bed was similar to our own at home - Very Comfortable! The house is in an excellent quiet location but very close to the sea front,...

We stayed at the Charterhouse for 4 days over the Easter weekend and were not disappointed. The weather was SO cold, but the welcome was warm, and so was the accommodation. We stayed in the beautifully appointed Riveria room with its sea views, super-king sized  bed, big ensuite bathroom and fluffy bathrobes. Breakfasts were lovely, with a variety of freshly...

I was travelling on business with my wife and arrived fairly late. The welcome was friendly and the room was good. It's about a 20 minute walk to the centre of Torquay. The walk is almost flat and quite easy. Breakfast was good and included home-made bread and preserves.

My partner and I stayed at The Charter House Hotel and we really loved it. It is located close to a beautiful bay, and close to Cockingington a lovely thatched village, and is only a short walk or drive into the centre of Torquay harbour. It was a fantastic experience from arrival to departure. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated...

My Husband, young daughter and I stayed at the Charterhouse last month. We had previously visited a couple of years ago. It was lovely to receive such a warm welcome when we returned in March.

We have spent the Autumn holidays at Charterhouse and enjoyed our stay very much. Marion gave as a warm welcome and a lot of information on the evening of our arrival. We are from Amsterdam and currently live in Berlin, and wanted to spend a few days at the English riviera to get away from the continental October-weather, to enjoy...

The Charterhouse is the most lovely place to stay. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, nothing is too much trouble for Marion and Les. We stayed in the very spacious and tranquil Riviera room which has wonderful views from both bedroom windows and the bathroom. Everything spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a leisurely treat -...
