We stayed at The Somerville Hotel for three nights 24/1/11 to 16/1/11. We had an excellent stay. Attention to detail was first class and we will certainly be staying again.

Stayed here for a weekend relaxing break. Very friendly hosts and upon arrival gave us a map of Torquay and recommended places to eat. Good quality furniture throughout and huge comfy bed. Fresh milk for tea/coffee in the fridge to help yourself to. You could also help yourself to fresh cookies and fruit. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice and you could basically have any combination you asked for.
