The stay was nice , just the cleaner needs to spend alitlle more time on the floors to ensure they are clean. And maybe get someone in to clean the sofas. Near a lovely beach and beach cafe, which the food was lovely, not to long of a walk into the main part of torquay but some steep hills, bus stop near by if don't want to take the car.

A good location for a family stay in Torquay. Handy for Meadfoot Beach and Cafe in one direction, and for the town centre (albeit up and down hill) in the other.

Lovely cottage very well placed just outside the town centre and next to Meadfoot beach. The house has all amenties catered for. Bedrooms are lovely. The rooms are very warm. It is dog friendly but they have to be kept downstairs which is a shame when the living room is on the first floor. Having said that we had a lovely stay. lots of coastal walkRead mores to occupy your days including a walk to Babbacombe with lovely sea views along the way. Paignton and Dartmouth are great days out. Hide

Lovely apartment on three floors. The beds are comfortable and bedrooms had good storage.There isn't a parking space to the place but the on road parking worked well and close to the property. I had taken the usual tea coffee salt pepper as needed but the place provided all of these. The beach was just down the road with parking if you don't fancy Read morethe short walk up the hill. Hide

We had a great stay and recommend it. The house is comfortable, well equipped, modern facilities and a minutes walk to the beach and bus stop. We would give the location 4 and a half stars, only not 5 stars due to the road which was noisy in the lounge with the doors open, fine when door closed. It's not a big deal as the bedrooms at night are quieRead moret. The house is on 3 floors, so we would have enjoyed a second tv on the ground floor. The management company do a great job, with generous supplies. Hide
