Our experience at Ferndale
I booked this accommodation through late rooms .com. It was a very easy process. I was very pleased to find that it it had a car park in fact it was one the reasons for choosing Ferndale Lodge. I was given instructions as to how to find Ferndale, but found them difficult to follow I would recommend issuing a map with road names and also placing a light on the place name and car park sign. We had in fact passed it several times without noticing! However once we were there everything was fine. Jon the proprietor was extremely helpful and welcoming. He gave us suggestions of where to eat in town and we certainly enjoyed our meal at the Hole in the Wall a very old pub near the harbour. The next day he recommended taking the Cliff Railway at Babbacombe since we wanted to go for a walk this fitted our plans exactly but we wouldnt have known the Cliff Railway as open since the leaflet said April to October only! Breakfast was absolutely delicious with a wide choice of things on offer. We liked the fact that it was a family run guest house and we enjoyed meeting Jon's mother in law. All in all a very good experience.

Fantastic for families and close to town!
I stayed at the ferndale hotel with my mum and two young children (2 year old and a 3 month old). The room was great for families and was situated on the ground floor so we didn't have to contend with any stairs with the two kids! Location was also great, near the town but not too noisy. The hotel staff could not do enough for us and I would highly recommend going here for any one wanting a short break in Torquay!

Fantastic stay
I came to meet a few friends, the people were very friendly, breakfast was great with a variety of choice. Rooms extremely clean, with a kettle, tea/coffee and biscuits. Well worth the money and am already thinking about a return with my family!

Great location, family friendly, good food and hospitality
We used Ferndale for a overnight stay in Torquay - which was perfect for what we needed. They had all the facilities to accomodate my toddler son. Good customer service, all the facilities you need including free WiFi, patio terrace and clean rooms and more importantly a great breakfast. I'd recommend this to anyone for a overnight/short stay.

Ferndale Torquay
I found the welcome i recieved at Ferndale very accompanying, the room was very clean and suited my personal needs being a lone traveller. The breakfast was very fresh and cooked to order with a choice selection of cereals and fruit, over all I found my stay there very pleasant and would recommend the Ferndale guest house to family and freinds
