Reviewed 18 September 2017

Super find, Dave & Clare are excellent hosts, very good choice at breakfast all freshly cooked to order, also very good choices for evening meals, something for everyone. Spotlessly clean. Oh and Dave, Billy Sutton was what he said!

Room Tip: Only stayed in one room but it was very quiet.

Claire & Dave were terrific hosts. Breakfast was amazing as expected & rooms were lovely, bright & clean.

Brilliant location with only a 10 minute walk from Torquay town centre.

*Only small issue is the small car park with limited spaces.

We have just returned from our 4th holiday here-the 3rd with Dave and Claire. Everything was perfect as always. Dave and Claire are wonderful hosts and really do go that extra mile to make sure you have an enjoyable and trouble free stay. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the food is lovely. The breakfasts are cooked to order by Dave (the egg whisperer!) and the evening meals are lovingly cooked by Claire and are delicious. The hotel is in an ideal location behind Torre Abbey and it is a lovely stroll through the grounds to the sea front. Another stroll along the sea front and you come to the centre where there is an excellent bus service, a lovely harbour and a good variety of shops. Thank you Dave and Claire for a lovely week. See you next year!

Room Tip: Some rooms are bigger than others but all are spotlessly clean and well equipped and tastefully deco...

Stayed for 4 nights, spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed, extremely friendly owners and guests, amazing breakfasts and scrumptious optional evening meals. Didn't want to leave, will definitely stay again!

Me and my husband go to Torquay a few times a year and each time I spend ages looking at the reviews for the hotels. I'm pleased that I no longer have to look as we have found the perfect place at Mount Edgecombe. From the minute you arrive you are greeted by wonderful hosts. The room was spotless with the added extra of a fridge. The breakfast was delicious all freshly cooked with a good choice which comes with Claire's friendly chatter. And a lovely email sent by Claire on Dave on your return home - the perfect place to stay.
