    Great hospitality and only a short walk to the marina and town. Choice at breakfast was great from muesli to fruit and a full English which was freshly cooked. In a quiet residential area and nothing was too much trouble. Tea and coffee available in the room with some lovely touches like sweets!! Definitely visit again if in Torquay

    There wasn't anything about the property that we didn't like.

    It was an old house but had very modern amenities. The landlady and 'staff' were very friendly. In our room there was plenty of snacks and beverages. The breakfast was awesome.

    There was nothing we didn't like

    Best breakfast in England served on hot plates. Tony and AL(sorry forgot your name) were the perfect hosts. Al poked her head around the door to welcome us for breakfast. It's these little personal touches that add so much.Tony recommended places that we could visit. All in all, a great place to stay. I would recommend Clifton Grove to fellow travelers

    I stopped in a double room without an en suite. The room was quite small, compared to the other double rooms available. There wasn't much room to manoeuvre around the king size bed. The shared toilet I used was constantly low on toilet paper!

    The staff were very friendly and most helpful, without being intrusive! Unlimited coffee and tea in room, where the chocolate chip cookie jar was always kept topped up. The breakfasts were excellent, with an ample range of fruits, cereals, and yogurts as well as a hearty full English. Good job I requested a small full English, as don't think I could of managed anything bigger!

    It's a little hilly way up from the very centre of Torquay. So it might be hard to stay here for people without good health.

    Can't think of one thing I didn't like. Excellent stay.

    The outside of hotel could do with a bit of work. But inside everything is perfect. Spotlessly clean. Unlimited tea and coffee, cookie jar topped up every day. Room had every facility you could think of. Including iron ironing board, and even a fan. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic and big. I couldn't manage all of it, and I asked for small. Every fruit you could think of there also
