We stayed here for 7 days in June and then again in September and we can't put into words how lovely this guest house is. Pauline and Anthony are the perfect hosts, Paulines omelettes are amazing and Anthony will always suggest the fruit toast! Staying here is like staying with friends and we can't wait to go back!

If you're looking for a great location in the beautiful Devon region then we'd highly recommend Court Prior. This fabulous accommodation is only a short walk from the sea front and the many restaurants and bars along the esplanade - all of which are great! Pauline and Anthony are fabulous hosts who make you feel incredibly welcome, are happy to chat and share their experience of the region and go out of their way to make your stay extremely comfortable.
Don't go past it - we certainly wouldn't!

What a lovely 5 days we have just had staying at court prior, we had everything we could want, lovely food, lovely room, lovely weather and what a very friendly couple Pauline and Anthony were couldn't do enough for us, not far from town and harbour short walk away. I would recommend staying here, hopefully we will go back in the future.

Room Tip: We had room 9 lovely room at the front

My partner and I decided to take a trip to Torquay and needed a place to stay. We found Prior Court on Trip Advisor and thought, from the lovely reviews, we would give it a go. It was my first time at a B&B and what a fantastic experience it was. Anthony and Pauline were the best hosts I have had at any place I've stayed before, and I've stayed in 5 star hotels. They were extremely welcoming and showed us all of the different things to do around Torquay. They would engage in conversation at Breakfast and ask how our evening was and what we got up to. The Breakfast was beautiful. Lots of choice. My partner and I had the special each day and it was perfect. We were able to ask for anything on the menu, plus toast, cereals, yoghurts, muffins, buns and juices. The room was clean and tidy, and the bins were changed each day of our stay. There is nothing that I can say negative about our stay.
Thank you so much for a brilliant experience and your fantastic hosting. We will most definitely be returning to Court Prior on our next trip to Torquay or the surrounding area.

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay here at this lovely Bed & Breakfast. Pauline & Anthony made us feel extremely welcome and offered a great deal of knowledge of the area with suggestions for the local restaurants, bars etc...The suite was pristine and the bed very comfortable. The breakfasts were enjoyable and very healthy. We would happily recommend and return-thank you.
