Had a wonderful stay in Torquay! The room appeared bigger than it did in the pictures, was wonderfully clean and the the ensuite was perfect. Very comfy bed in quiet surroundings, plus black out blinds led to a great night sleep. Gary and Steve were incredibly welcoming and allowed us full use of the kitchen- tea and coffee a plenty. Would definitely choose to stay with them again. Leisurely 10-15 min walk to the harbour and town centre (a little longer on the way back as its all up hill).
Gary and Steve were so welcoming - We only booked the night before and had never used airbnb... well, what a lovely introduction to the concept. The room was fab, very comfortable, and we were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived. Would definitely recommend staying here. I am sure we will be back! Jo & Dave
What a fantastic place and what great hosts.
The accommodation was like living in a hotel and so quiet.
Both my partner and I had some good general conversations with
Gary and Steve who made us feel very welcomed.
If we were to revisit Torquay again this is our pick.
Gary and Steve made me feel very welcome at their lovely house in Torquay. The bedroom is situated on the first floor of the house and has a nice view onto the backyard with its plants and trees. The house is located in an extremly quiet and very safe area. I woke up to the sounds of birds in the mornings. I can highly recommend this lovely place and Gary and Steve were so open, helpful and friendly and gave me many tips about Torquay and the surrounding area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay inTorbay with Gary and Steve. Right from our first meeting both were extremely hospitable and welcoming, to our long (and not so lengthy) chats, their helpful trip advice and their general, helpful demeanour for the duration of our stay. Gary and Steve were very affable hosts and we enjoyed their company a great deal. The accommodation that was provided for us was very comfortable (particularly the bed) and the room was comfortable without being overly ostentatious! All in all we were made very welcomed and would have no hesitation in returning to visit or recommend other visitors to seek accommodation with Gary and Steve! Thank you to both of you!
The Hosts made us feel welcome by being friendly and warm. They made themselves available for any information we wanted. The room is warm and cosy and the room is much better in real life. We ate in the conservatory which was spacious and atmospheric. The house in general is very clean, warm and welcoming. If we ever went to Torquay again we would stay here again.
Both hosts were very friendly. The room is small but very clean and stylish. En suite bathroom was great. The location is on top of a hill so it's good exercise to walk to the center (taxi costs only 4-5 pounds). It's a pity they had a backyard renovation going on so we couldn't try their hot tub.
