Excellent few days in April with Marion and Les who are lovely people and couldn't do enough to help us in whatever way they could. Good, well cooked food (proper bacon and sausages for breakfast, not forgetting the home made bread!). Our room was spotlessly clean and bed really comfortable. The hotel has a friendly atmosphere, a return visit is...

My wife, 17 month old son and I stayed here for 5 nights. Marion and Les were very accommodating and helpful with any additional needs or enquiries we had for example vegetarian breakfast, milk for our son and very early breakfast for myself. Our interconnecting room was nice and clean with spacious ensuite bathroom, Wifi, TV and tea/coffee making facilities....

Excellent experience. Marion was the perfect hostess. The room was luxurious with a great bathroom. Really appreciated the provided Badedas! Wifi was also very good. Watched a live Sky football stream with no problems. Good food, homemade whiskey marmalade - Yum.

Stayed 2 nights the beginning of April. Lovely warm welcome from the host, Marion. She made us feel very welcome. We were able to book in early which was great. Room was lovely, clean and had a nice size en- suite. The Charterhouse is beautifully situated in a lovely country lane but only 3 minutes walk from the sea front....

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.

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...
