We have been staying with Pete and Helen for many years - in fact we wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Torquay. The breakfast is the best there and always served with a smile by the lovely Paul. Also Helens cakes deserve a mention too 😋 The rooms are beautiful, stylish, comfortable and spotless and the location is perfect. The best thing about the Somerville though is the hosts. Pete and Helen give 100% faultless service in every way and nothing is ever too much trouble.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Somerville and are looking forward to returning again soon. This beautiful hotel is extremely well run and provides luxury b&b accommodation, all within walking distance of Torquay. We stayed in the Courtyard suite which was extremely comfortable and clean, with quality bed linen and towels. The attention to detail throughout our stay was noticed and appreciated. Helen’s complimentary afternoon cake was delicious. The breakfast was amazing, beautifully presented and so very tasty using local produce. Thank you to Peter for making us feel so welcome, it was a pleasure to stay at your hotel, we can’t wait to return.

We say won’t go to Torquay again .. But we will because we like this hotel . Got to be best in Torquay and we’ve stayed in a few in that area ... Thanks to Peter and Helen .. A relaxing stay ...
Peter and Helen are wonderful hosts with just the right approach, extremely helpful if you want help but completely unobtrusive. The hotel is fabulous within walking distance of Torquay but just enough outside to feel away from the hustle and bustle. There are amazing places to visit by car, bus or foot from the hotel. The breakfast is first class as little or as much as you like, fresh milk and water for your room and afternoon cake to help yourself too. The rooms are beautiful with individuality but some amazing statement pieces in each one. A relaxed first class stay in every respect.
Wonderful hotel, spotless in all departments, great breakfast with a huge choice. Attention to detail is amazing. The gardens are a pleasure to sit in. Helens home made daily cakes are delicious. Would we stay there again? You bet we will!!
