Vicky was fantastic. Hotel is clean, comfortable, bright, fresh, charming, well equipped and homely. Breakfast was delicious and good quality with everything you could wish for. Grilled on-vine tomatoes and a ramekin of beans made it a little bit special. In the room you have tea coffee biscuits shampoo shower gel cotton buds. Attention to detail was perfect. Will be...

We arrived at the hotel without a booking on Monday 6th July and although Vicky hadn't planned on opening until the Tuesday and was in a little bit of a mess she still welcomed us in & offered us a lovely double room for two nights if we could cope with the mess (which wasn't a mess at all) which...

I was very impressed by the lovely little ramekins for jams and marmalade at the breakfast tables. My double room was luxurious and the hostess, Vicki, always goes...

We have just had a two night stay at Melba House. Vicki is very pleasant and friendly, but we feel she has quite a bit to learn still about the B+B business. While it is obvious that one wants to make as good a profit as possible from one's business, it is a good idea to make sure what one...

On arrival at the Melba House Hotel, I was immediately impressed by the beautifully furnised hotel in the perfect location, close to Railway Station and with easy walking distance to the town and harbour.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A friendly, welcoming non smoking bed and breakfast hotel with private car park and all rooms en-suite. We are one of the best located hotels in Torquay, only 350 yards from sea front, and 250 yards from the Riviera conference centre. The railway station is about 10 minutes level walk away. The hotel overlooks a park, where cricket and rugby can be watched from our terrace. The harbour and town are also just a short stroll away, where you will find the many restaurants and bars Torquay has to offer. ... more   less
