We have just returned from a lovely week at the Somerville hotel in Torquay. What a gem of a place this is. Spotlessly clean, room is full of little extras, everything you need has been thought of, food is high quality and beautifully presented, breakfasts are delicious! We shall really miss this place and will be returning on our next visit to Torquay

We have just had our third stay at Kim & Trev's Impecable Hotel. The whole experience was faultless, the room was spotless, the food was superb. Kim & Trevor are such a lovely welcoming couple, nothing is too much trouble for them. We've booked to return next year. When you find a place this good - you don't let go. Even the Wi-Fi is excellant @ 174Mbps !!!

Amazing stay would definitely recommend for anyone coming to Torquay. A lovely location just a short walk along the sea front to the harbour. The room we stayed in (3) was lovely and spacious and kept immaculately clean. Breakfast was fantastic every day with a wide range of choice. Would definitely stay again and will be recommending to friends and family.

What a find absolutely perfect in every way! The hosts are so welcoming and friendly. The communal areas are spotless not a speck of dust! The room we had was lovely very clean and we had a fridge! Shower was powerful and hot. Lots of choice at breakfast very good produce no cheap rubbish! They have an honesty bar in the lounge which is perfect for pre dinner drinks or a night cap not expensive great choice. With be coming to Torbay often to see family members this is situated in a great place park up at the hotel and walk to local nearby restaurants. The added bonus was coming back from a long walk to a cream tea which was delicious. Keep up the good work Trev and Kim we look forward to staying with you in 2022
