      Our second stay with Peter and Helen at The Somerville did not disappoint us, breakfasts were great with a varied selection to suit all tastes. Stayed in the Somerville suite, 3 TVs including one in the bathroom, what luxury, unfortunately didnt make use of that, perhaps next time, because there definitely will be a next time. Thanks again Peter and Helen for being brilliant hosts and for the warm welcome received.

      Our 2nd stay at The Somerville and our favourite Bed & Breakfast in Torquay! Peter and Helen are brilliant hosts who once again made us feel welcome. This time we stayed in a Deluxe King Room which was most comfortable and had a lovely bay window with a view down the hill towards the harbour. Breakfasts were outstanding, delicious and filling, with a large selection of buffet and cooked to order options. Plus in the afternoon homemade cakes and fresh milk was available to guests. Another enjoyable and relaxing stay.

    • Perfect stay for a perfect weekend

      What an amazing little B&B, Perfect location just a short walk from the Harbour, Restaurants and Bars. Can't thank Peter and Heeln enough for their hospitality, who doesn't like free homemade cake and the breakfast is frankly Michelin star quality (try the American waffles they don't disappoint). A real gem and 100% will stay again!

    • A wonderful place to stay

      From the moment we were picked up from the station by Helen to the day we left we had a lovely stay. The location is perfect for a wander into Torquay or a bus to local villages/towns. The room was a good size, well equipped and comfortable. The breakfasts were great, a varied menu and lively conversation with Peter who also shared his knowledge of the local area for day trips. We are already looking forward to returning!! Mark and ygunn

    • An amazing find!

      Can't thank Pete and Helen enough for their warm welcome and hospitality. The suite was wonderful and well priced for the amenities. Only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Torquay. Will definitely be back soon. Richard and Lisa
