Yet another fantastic stay

Went to Heathcliff House for my birthday. Fantastic welcome as usual, great food, great company. Loads of laughs, the weather didn’t matter as we were in the bar in the evening with Nigel and Juliette. Birthday morning received a lovely card and present at breakfast. We have been here about 6 times and wouldn’t go anywhere else in Torquay, you wouldn’t beat the excellent breakfast or hosts as nothing is too much trouble.  Sorry Nigel we will be back!


Nigel and Juliette were the perfect hosts, very patient and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble


Breakfast was great, A very good variety and the homemade yogurt, preserves and butter added a unique and welcoming touch. The location was superb as it was just minutes from the Marina and easy access to great restaurants. The seafood cream tea is a must try. The array of flavours made our palates dance and sing. To sum up in one word SUPERB!!!

Fantastic owners, fantastic place – would highly recommend

Marina, Worcester, Worcestershire  30th September 2019


A comfortable guest house at a great price in a perfect location for all needs


Nigel and Juliet agreed to an arrival/check in time up to 3 hours after their usual check in. This was critical to our travel and weekend plans.  Their welcome is always very warm and friendly. Their rooms are always well serviced and impeccably clean. Breakfasts are the best we have experienced in any hotel worldwide. Ingredients are locally sourced. Jams, butters and yoghurt is made in house. There is a bar on the premises that is a popular and friendly meeting place for evening drinks.  The hotel location is on a main bus route to the town, beach and shops. Close to the local Rail station and local pubs. Nigel and Juliette work extremely hard to ensure that their hotel is a# homely and comfortable as possible for all their guests. They have big personalities and warm hearts.

Couldn’t fault.  Spotlessly clean.  Great welcome from Nigel and Juliette.  Nothing was a problem, the room was really comfortable.  We really enjoyed our stay.

8.3/10  Very Good!!!


As we had the smallest and cheapest room available, it was adequate for what we were charged.  The hospitality was first class ….. very welcoming, sociable hosts.  Breakfast was all you could ask for ….. Husband loves his full English, whereas I love my cereal, toast, yoghurt etc and it was all catered for with good choice of juices, teas and coffees ….. basically a great breakfast.  Thank you Nigel and Juliette J  Clothes storage and size of TV could be improved but we also paid a lot less than the other rooms cost, so fair for the money.

En el desayuno se adaptaron al hecho de que yo era vegano.  Me gusto todo.

At breakfast they adapted to the fact that I was vegan.  I liked it all.

  • Fabulous stay and already booked for 2020.
  • The little added extras like the homemade biscuits which were left in our room were lovely. Really liked the room and the bed was especially comfy.


Nigel and Juliette great hosts, will definitely stay here again

Breakfast was excellent, muffins every morning fresh, raspberry and white chocolate ones melted in your mouth, bed extra comfy.

Excellent place to stay. Nigel and Juliet are lovely people and breakfasts are superb. The property has easy parking. The train station is a five minute walk and a regular bus to and from Torquay stops outside. It is good value for money and we will always stay there when visiting the area.

First class experience

Nice relaxing 3 night break arrived as guests left as friends !!!

Attention to detail at breakfast time was lovely and the bar area was comfy and relaxing with good chat...


Paul and Jo, Dewsbury 11th June 2019

¤¤¤¤¤ Great place to stay


Spent five nights at this B&B. Very comfortable stay, the room (room7) was very comfortable and clean with lovely bedding and a superb shower room. Juliette and Nigel were excellent hosts with a wealth of knowledge on the area and places to go. Juliette’s home made biscuits were topped up every day. Breakfast was superb and as vegetarians we were well catered for. I recommend this family run B&B strongly.

We enjoyed a totally relaxing break at Heathcliff House this week. Juliette and Nigel are fabulous hosts - so friendly, funny, caring and helpful.


Excellent breakfasts (including Juliette's superb home made Clementine and Gin marmalade, so good I brought 2 jars home with me).


Lots of lovely personal touches e.g. home made biscuits / granola bars in the room to have with your coffee, fresh fruit and water on arrival etc.


We had the Seafood afternoon tea on Thursday, there was so much of it we didn't eat again until breakfast on Friday !


We've stayed at HH 3 times now and each room has been very comfortable, clean, bright and airy. As soon as we arrive, my slippers go on and boom ..... I'm home from home ?.


We can't recommend Nigel & Juliette and Heathcliff House highly enough!

We're looking forward to our next stay, see you soon guys xxx

Plenty of choice from the cold buffet , cooked breakfast was very good nice and hot. Everything was home-made right down to the butter.  Everything was just perfect. Juliette and Nigel were lovely and very down to earth, nothing was too much trouble for then couldn't have asked for more.

9.2/10 I enjoyed my stay and felt comfortable at the Heathcliff House!


Nigel and Juliette were friendly and helpful and my room (number 6) had been recently redecorated and had a new en-suite.  There was a good choice at breakfast and the full English was good quality!

¤¤¤¤¤ Another fantastic stay

Stayed at Heathcliff for a special Valentine's weekend. Lovely welcome as always, champagne in room as ordered. Afternoon tea on Friday all home made cakes and pastries. Saturday night 3 course evening meal included in price it was delicious. This was our 3rd visit and it was just as good if not better than the last. We would thoroughly recommend, and we will definitely return.



Food was great

Lovely comfortable accommodation. Nigel and Juliette are great hosts and make you feel very welcome. The cooked breakfasts are delicious with locally sourced products and some homemade jams, muffins etc. There is an added addition of a nice quiet bar, with local beers. Highly recommended.

¤¤¤¤¤ Convenient with a delicious breakfast


Had 4 nights stay as solo traveller. Nigel and Juliette are very friendly. I was impressed by their professionalism from my first contact. Delicious breakfast freshly cooked. Enjoyed the big shower in my room. Conveniently near bus stop and Torre Staion so easy to leave car in the car park. Will stay here again.

5/5 Wonderful Stay


This was one of the best stays we have ever had, the hosts were lovely and friendly, the breakfast was better than 4 and 5 star hotels we have stayed in. All homemade even the butter for the toast. The bedroom was immaculate, clean and tidy with fresh fruit, milk and homemade biscuits. But Nigel and Juliette also really care, my husband was unwell on our last night due to some dodgy seafood eaten elsewhere. They both came up to ask if they could help, produce iced water and checked he was ok,  this would never have happened in a faceless hotel. Thank you for a wonderful 4 days we will be back ?

5/5 Honest Review!

Stayed here this weekend 29/06-01/07 2018

House: On arrival there was plenty of free parking.. We were greeted with a very warm welcome... the reception area is large, clutter free and you can instantly tell that this B&B is spotlessly clean! We were offered an orientation of where to go, what to see and where to eat. We were shown to our room and again it was spotless! #HappyDays Room: The linen/towels were crisp and clean.. and then we spotted the extras.. so we had tea/coffee making facilities in our room with lovely large mugs!  There were plenty of plug sockets for all our gadgets and the clock/radio had USB sockets ... bonus!! Plenty of coat hangers were supplied, hand soap/shower gel (large bottles) were full and branded! The owners have thought of everything ... There is an information folder in the room (a must read!) it gives you so much info on the surrounding areas, public transportation, (the number 12 stops right outside.. £5 for a hop on hop off 24hour pass - with access to Torquay/Brixham/Paignton) history of the house, breakfast info... and so much more.. The bed was so comfortable and we each had 2 pillows...


Breakfast: The hot breakfast is freshly cooked as per your order and you can add, omit and have extras if u wish - on your plate with no hassle.. and it’s hot, fresh, delicious and so tasty!! There is also a huge selection of cold buffet... cereals, muffins, cookies.. there’s a variety of milk, tea bags, coffee, jams, marmalade, curds... and all the preserves were home made! (Lemon Curd... Ooff! Gorgeous!) even the butter is hand churned!! The young lady who we shall call C, (Data Protection) who waited the breakfast tables gave an impeccable service, polite, friendly and a credit to the business!

Recap: I have to say We would highly recommend this B&B..Nigel & Juliette put customer service at the top of their list and it comes naturally to them.. This is so much more than a typical B&B...It’s like ... home from home... Our main concerns when away from home are... Clean/Tidy/Comfy and this home has ticked all 3 and exceeded by far!
