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.

Peter and Helen was brilliant hosts and made us most welcome, breakfast was outstanding, service was also excellent and the 2 girls were a credit to the place. car parking was not a problem and was close to the marina, only 5 minute walk. We would be happy to stay again and would recommend.

Faultless Stay

Posted 03-Sep-2016
Excellent hotel in every way. Great location for Town centre within walking distance. Staff could not be better. This hotel is one of the best we have ever stayed at. Cleanliness is excellent. The suite was a delight to stay in. Well done. We will stay again and recommend to family and friends.

Amazing stay - 5 star

Posted 30-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Attention to detail was everywhere from our bedroom, down the stairs, lounge area, breakfast room, sun terrace and the garden to breakfast. Amazing hosts and staff, all so very happy and friendly. Our bed and pillows were pure comfort, best sleep I've had in ages. Breakfast was to die for.. so much choice on the menu and locally sourced produce. The buffet selection made our mouths water just looking at it. The hotel is on a steep hill which can prove a challenge in 4 inch heels at 1pm in the morning, however taxi's and buses are abundant. We will be going back again for sure to see Peter and Helen and enjoy the comforts of the beautiful Somerville.
