My mother and I were visiting our grandchildren/greatgrandchildren in Newton Abbot but all the Hotels there were booked as it was 'Race Weekend'.
I was staying at my sons house in Newton Abbot but I had to book my mother into a Guesthouse and the closet place was Torquay (only about 5 miles away).
We were greeted on arrival at 'Kingsway' by an extremely friendly host (Meryl) who showed mother to her room (a single) and talked her through all the breakfast details.
My mother has helped run a Guesthouse herself and she remarked to me how clean the accomodation was and she was extremely satisfied with the way she was looked after during her visit.
The room was a single, had a TV, Kettle and assortment of teas and coffees available in the room.
Mother she she would be most happy to visit here again.
There are 3 Car Parking spaces for this 4 room GuestHouse
The Guesthouse itself is just a few hundred yards from Torre Railway Station.
Buses go into town (about 4 mins away) from the main road about 200 yards away,
Carry on down the road from the Guesthouse and it is about a mile to Torquay Sea Front.More
