Quiet and Comfortable

Posted 06-Aug-2017
Pros: We thought the adverts and descriptions for this hotel were good - in reality, everything was much better.
Cons: Still trying to think of anything that needs improving.
Location: Great location for walks into Torquay and if fit, other local beaches. A hop on/off bus service a few yards away means you can forget the car.
Room was very comfortable and quiet despite hotel being on main road only a five minute walk from harbour and town centre. Peter and Helen were perfect hosts with plenty of godd advice on local attractions and eating places. Great value for money. Just wished we could have stayed longer. Helen's cakes each afternoon were gorgeous.

Lovely B&B close to the marina

Posted 28-Jun-2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing
Location: Close to the marina and shops. Other main areas are only a short car/taxi journey away.
This is a really lovely B&B really close to the marina, yet quiet. The rooms were spotless and decorated elegantly. We stayed for one night on our wedding anniversary and it felt warm and cosy. The owners were really nice and the breakfast served in the morning was delicious. Definitely 5 stars!

Lovely stay - will be back again!

Posted 16-May-2017 on Hotels
We had a wonderful stay at Somerville House. From start to finish, Peter and Helen ensured we had a comfortable stay. This included delicious cakes upon arrival and an extensive, tasty breakfast menu. We had room 1, which was very clean, modern and spacious with a beautiful bathroom. Some nice touches were the pop-up TV in the bed, a snuggle couch with second TV and lovely White Company toiletries. Overall 10/10 - we will be back again soon!

A gem

Posted 29-Apr-2017 on Hotels
We were picked up from the railway station by the host which was great and he could not have been more welcoming. The room was perfect with a television and tea and coffee facilities. A lovely on suite and the room was very peaceful. The breakfast was superb.
