A little gem in Torquay

We enjoyed our stay very much as we were welcomed and catered for throughout.

Breakfasts were given special attention with fresh fruit, juices and a range of different cooked, local food, so worth getting up for. Rooms comfortable and individual with added character. We felt that we had been treated as we would like to be and that the owners had put themsleves in the shoes of the traveller in deciding how to design their business. Well done!

On entering the spacious car park we had a good feeling.

We were received most efficiently and shown to our ground floor room (Room 2). The room and fittings were truly amazing, with incredible attention to detail in every respect - sweets, home made biscuits, fresh milk, filter coffee and cafetiere, and a fridge. In the corridor was another fridge with fresh milk, and a table of home baking. The bathroom was packed with high quality soaps, and towels were soft and thick - the robes were a lovely surprise. The lounge was quirky but impressive. And the dining room was just fabulous. And the breakfasts were out of this world, with fresh fruit, smoothies, yoghurts, patissieries and the most wonderful cooked items. This is without doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed in - fantastic value for money. Mine hosts were breathtakingly efficient and welcoming, and their staff were first class. The Somerville must be the best hotel in Torquay.

A Wonderful Experience!!

I booked this at short notice as I didnt have my children for the day and my partner had worked three long night shifts I decided to treat her to an overnight break.

Over the years I have stayed in numerous quality hotels in various regions of the country.

This one has to be tried to really be appreciated.

The welcome and the quality of the rooms and the beds were the best I have experienced.

I have been been in the furniture retail industry since 1981. Bed manufacturers have put me up in different hotels on factory visits and no hotel has reached this level of comfort or quality of service.

If you have a special ocassion to celebrate give this place a try. I cannot wait to escape again soon. Hopefully for longer next time...
