Just had our yearly 4 day stay with Dave & Claire and once again we had a wonderful time. We always look forward to spending time with them as nothing's too much trouble and they are just good fun, but very professional. The home cooked breakfast by Dave and the evening meals by Claire were absolutely delicious. Plus, a clean and comfortable room what more do you want. Always happy to recommend this brilliant establishment and cannot wait until our next stay.

Room Tip: All good rooms, but we stayed in Room 2 (large room, large bed, nice furnishings, ground floor).

First time stay. Spotless comfortable room. Good home cooking breakfasts and evening meals. Fantastic hosts, nothing too much trouble. Good location, car parking a bonus. Already booked for next year.

Hi Judy & Trevor
Thank you for the review, we really appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback.
We had a lovely week with you both and all of our other guests, and Trevor's 'foil art skills' were a thing' to marvel.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and have reworded us with another week's booking for 2018.
Take care until we see you both again
Best Wishes
Dave & Claire

We stayed for 7 days, and were made to feel very welcome by excellent hosts. Our room was spotlessly clean, as was everywhere else, and also very comfortable. Breakfasts were really good, being freshly prepared with ample choice. The parking facility was very welcome, particularly in Torquay. The location is ideal being a pleasant walk to the sea front and then into town from which buses run in all directions. An added bonus is the rail station being very close. We felt very much 'at home' during the whole of our stay.

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.
