A touch of class

Posted 07-Nov-2016
we went for a 50th birthday treat family member weekend. everything was perfect from the Greeting and complimentary tea while checking in, the rooms are roomy and luxurious, lots of little extras, and breakfast to die for so varied and wide choice. Peter the genial host, nothing to much trouble and helped with bookings for evening meals and theatre. we were a party of 2 couples and a single and no complaints from anyone. will definitely return and recommend to anyone wanting a touch of luxury stay within close proximity to torquay centre.

A brilliant experience

Posted 01-Nov-2016
Location: Get the Ferry over to Brixham. Its a lovely little fishing village. Some lovely little shops and some nice little pubs. Ferry only £3.00 return.
I could wax lyrical about this Hotel all day. From being picked up at the train station all part of the service. The Breakfast was second to none. Rooms so clean what ever you needed was provided. All the staff were so friendly. No problems to report. Next time in Torquay no trawling though the internet for me. Its the Somerville all the way for us.

The Best Ever B&B

Posted 04-Oct-2016
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing, just wish they could franchise and replicate their fantastic approach elsewhere!
Location: Torquay and Torbay have lots of options be it seaside attractions, or the fantastic beauty of Dartmoor on the doorstep
We had a fantastic break, the hosts were perfect, the facilities great and we enjoyed the most amazing food. The breakfast buffet was extensive with a great range of local and home made produce and this was all followed by a mesmerising choice of hot food which included local produce. There was cake on hand all day along with fresh tea and coffee and the hosts couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great stay.

Nice Hotel Given Location in Torquay

Posted 25-Sep-2016 on Hotels
Trying to be objective here. We found Torquay to be horrific and cut short our stay at the Somerville. The hotel itself was ok though. Reasonably close to the seafront with restaurants etc. The check in was a little odd as the details from Hotels.com hadn't gone through properly but all sorted out. Room was described as "Deluxe" but was very small - bed basically filled the room - only one chair. Bathroom small but very nicely appointed. Fridge, coffee making etc all good. TV system antiquated and the remote very old. Bed was probably nice once upon a time but mattress now poor. Although we booked seven months in advance we were given the room with a view over the car park at ground level which made for a reasonably noisy stay and when coupled to the endless drunken yobs walking up the main road and the endless numbers of boy racers revving their engines all night long it was a VERY noisy place to stay. I expected a quieter place and personally struggled to sleep at all with the noise and uncomfortable mattress (and I've lived in major city centres with no problems!). Overall, we cut our stay short because of the town, not the hotel. The owners were good and very friendly.

Sensationelles B&B. Sehr nette Gastgeber, hoher Komfort, sauber, tolle Lage - eigentlich schade, dass wir nur eine Nacht da waren.
