The hotel room was lovely and very inviting. The place is about a 5min walk from the sea and I would come again.
The room was spacious, warm and very comfortable. BreAkfast was also very good. We will be returning.
Nothing to dislike...
The wi-fi wasn't working, which didn't particularly bother us but might have been a problem for someone else
We were welcomed by name on arrival, there was fresh milk available for our hot drinks and cakes and biscuits to east with it. The bedroom was comfortable and beautifully decorated. A fantastic breakfast with great service. Good location.
Friendly staff. The place was immaculate Close to some lovely restaurants The Junior Suite was beautiful
Everything about this hotel is excellent. The attention to detail; the friendliness of the owners. The superb breakfast. One word covers our experience - fabulous.
Graham was the perfect host.
I have nothing to complain about
Room upgrade close to town friendly staff
The hotel, staff and food were all excellent. Along with a great position, The Somerville is just fantastic, and very reasonably priced.If stopping in Torquay again, we will not be going anywhere else. Thank you.
We liked everything
The whole ambience, service and set up of this small hotel is excellent. The location is very good with free off road parking. Very relaxed, comfortable stay in a very well appointed homely environment. Definitely a hotel to return to.

Warm welcome Friendly atmosphere Superb accommodation Very tasty meals
My husband and I arrived in torquay for a friends wedding. We were greeted with a very warm welcome. We had arrived early and the room was already available. Beautiful bed and breakfast in fantastic location for torquay town centre. Highlights were the decor, comfortable bed, cake and fresh milk on arrival, all facilities available in room (hairdryer, iron and board etc) but best of all the amazing continental and cooked breakfast the next day. Fabulous bed and breakfast! Thank you for our stay!
The hills, but that's Torquay!
Liked the unusual décor, the variety and quality of the food, the helpful friendliness of the staff
Fantastic friendly owners who had thought of every need of their guests. Excellent information on local restaurants and a wonderful breakfast. Parking was very easy and only a short walk to the Harbour. We will certainly visit again.
Everything was better than we had hoped for & we couldn't fault anything!

Everything is superb you can't find better. From the lavish sparkling clean rooms to the people and the excellent food
Nothing at all. I could not find anything to fault or quibble about, no matter how hard I tried. Very unusual these days!
Everything was faultless both in its quality and delivery. Beds very comfortable, breakfasts excellent, everything in between superb.
