Stayed for a couple of nights, room very comfortable and decorated to compliment the period of the building. All the little extra’s ……. Tea/coffee/toiletries are quality products! and demonstrate the attention to detail Gary, Philip and staff are committed and passionate to make your stay an enjoyable as possible. Breakfast has choice and excellent. Loved our mini break visiting friends and will be back.

Hey Elaine - thanks so much for the top marks and your wonderful feedback - it is particularly pleasing to read your comments about the building and our interiors to complement and highlight The Torcroft's stunning original features, that really was our aim so wonderful to hit the bullseye! And yes, we only sere Yorkshire Tea, Lavazza coffee and Taylors of Harrogate coffee bags - and we too think the toiletries are gorgeous, we love the Bergamot and Rosemary scent! It is so nice to hear your comments about our wonderful team, they work so hard and love the building and want guests to have the best time and service with us! Look forward to your return, hope to see you both back again in the future, all the best Gary

We've just spent 5 wonderful nights at the Torcroft and can not praise it highly enough. Both Gary and Philip are great host's, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is simply the best and the girls Ebony and Lucy are a credit to teenager's of today as they are so pleasant with always a friendly smile. We had a suite, room number 5 which was great as it has a huge bathroom with stand alone bath and walk in shower. Also the most comfortable bed.

The location is ideal for Torquay center or there are plenty of buses available to get you further afield if you wish.

We will definitely be returning.

hey Chris and Alison - genuine thanks for taking the time to leave us such a fabulous review, and high praise is always welcome! We are so pleased you had such a good visit, and enjoyed our locally sourced top breakfasts so much, and yes Ebony and Lucy are both lovely young woman who are an asset to us - guests do love them! And always love it when guests enjoy Room 5 so much - it is so massive and the bathroom is rather spacious - look forward to welcoming you both back in the future - enjoy the summer if it ever stops being grey and wet! All the best, Gary

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful holiday. We cannot recommend this place enough - it was perfectly located within a 5mins walk to the town/pier with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Our hosts Gary and Philip were extremely accomadating, helpful and genuinely welcoming (with great suggestions of what to see and do!) The place was clean, classy and beautifully designed. The breakfast was also fantastic with plenty of veg/vegan options. Defo a gem find!

This was our second time visiting The Torcroft and won’t be our last! We stayed for a long weekend with 3 other couples to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday and we all had such a brilliant time. Gary and Philip are amazing, their B&B is beautiful and the location is spot on. The building is set back from a quiet road making it a peaceful base to relax and sleep soundly. Only a 5 minute walk and you hit the seafront/beach and first handful of bars and restaurants with just another 10 minutes along the seafront into the centre of Torquay. We had one of the balcony rooms at the front of the building this time and it was beautiful. Breakfast was so delicious with ample variety and cooked to perfection, you can tell only the best produce is used! This time round there was the addition of the in house bar which is beautifully decorated and has a variety of local and mainstream drinks. We really did have the best time away and a huge chunk of that was down to Gary and Philip and their wonderful B&B! Can’t wait to go back x

Hey Stacey - you know we love it when you come and stay, and bringing back 6 friends too was fab, never mind the cake! Thanks so much for your comments and we are thrilled you enjoyed all the refurbishment - and the balcony suites are special! Thrilled you all enjoyed breakfast and the bar is super popular, people want to have so much fun this summer, and about time! Look after yourselves, thanks for leaving some of the gorgeous cake and see you both again - enjoy the rest of the summer, Gary
