You don't 'not like' at the Somerville
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!
Liked the unusual décor, the variety and quality of the food, the helpful friendliness of the staff
The hills, but that's Torquay!
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 was amazing
The sommerville is beautifully furnished clean & very welcoming we love the homemade cake or cookies everyday. The breakfasts are beautiful & really do set you up for the day we have been for 2 years now and enjoyed our stay both times we would highly recommend this guest house
People were great. Food excellent and room was perfect.
Everything is superb you can't find better. From the lavish sparkling clean rooms to the people and the excellent food
No one could fault anything
Everything was faultless both in its quality and delivery. Beds very comfortable, breakfasts excellent, everything in between superb.
Nothing at all. I could not find anything to fault or quibble about, no matter how hard I tried. Very unusual these days!
We have had the pleasure of staying at the Somerville twice now and can highly recommend it. The room are beautifully and thoughtfully decorated making your stay very enjoyable. The owners Adam and Grant are make you feel at home and that nothing is a problem to ask for. The breakfast is also very good. This hotel sets the standard that all other should try to achieve.
Everything! Location, cleanliness, food,nothing was too much trouble thoroughly enjoyed our stay
The breakfast was very well cooked and very well presented .
The bar not being open after 9
very friendly place; Grant made us very welcome. Room was very well equipped and the refreshments were excellent. Breakfast buffet was amazing and cooked menu very extensive all served by friendly staff.
No view from our room which was slightly claustrophobic however we were only staying 1 night over a Bank Hol weekend.
All the little extras and the ecceptional breakfast
The bedding was much too warm for a hot summer's night
The room layout, location and breakfast
The lack of air conditioning
Love the Somerville, attention to detail, immaculately clean (not even any dust on the picture frames). Particularly impressed with the restaurant reviews and tourist info, breakfast was excellent offering everything you could possibly want!! We have even been converted to organic food (especially milk). Will most definitely be returning :)
Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was excellent
Everything. Great small friendly very well run B&B. So much though has gone into providing everything you might need. Breakfast top quality ingredients well presented. Felt like nothing was too much trouble. We were made most welcome, will definitely stay here again.
Location and Food
Noise and uncomfortable sofa
For a last minute booking I was completely taken by surprise I honestly didn't think that it would be anything special and I'm glad I was wrong. Booked in late and the manager was willing to stay up to let me check in, he gave me the guided tour not the disgruntled trollop you usually get for keeping them up late. The room itself had a touch of homely elegance with every amenity you would need on a holiday with decent teas & hot chocolates to drink at night and comfortable dressing gowns to squeeze into after lathering yourself up with the lavish soaps (and bath salts!) after having enjoyed a nice day out. The breakfast in the morning was fabulous I couldn't fault it, was like being back at home as a child having your family cook for you it was delicious and there was a decent spread on the continental breakfast side of things. I hope I can find another excuse to come back to Torquay because the hard part of finding a hotel to stay in that you know you will enjoy has been taken care of with only the holiday left to enjoy. Without a doubt I've travelled half way around the world in many high class hotels and this is a gem and will be back to stay here in the future !
Some of the fixtures came loose. In the shower one of the handles that adjusted the shower came off in my hand. The paint wasn't completely flush around the fire alarm on the ceiling in the bathroom.
Great room very comfortable fresh milk hospitality.
Very good b+b,staff were excellent and would recommend a stay here to see how nice it is. : )
Bed a bit too soft for our liking,cool in bedroom at night due to heating turned off but radiator provided and no bedroom door so open plan to entry door,other than these brilliant place to stay.
The outside roof garden and he quirkyness plus the nice little touches like cakes and cookies as you come in.
Wonky floor in the bathroom
