Only stayed here for one night but made to feel very welcome by the owner and her son. The room I was given had recently been redecorated to a nice standard. Fresh and modern decoration, fixtures and fittings with everything you would need. The extra touches such as chocolates and the biscuits were good. Breakfast was lovely and much nicer... More

Thank you for all your positive feedback. We are pleased you liked the new décor and of course breakfast. We have just taken on a new young local member of staff and have taken on board your tips about balancing concentrating with cheeriness. Tricky for a teenager in the morning but I'm sure we'll get there. More

Mouldy bedroom and bathroom. Would not want to stay again. Would not recommend. Never stayed in a room like this before, and hope never have to again. Glad that the weather was sunny and mild and able to explore lots of Torquay, which was a wonderful place to visit. Would recommend visiting Torquay.
