Where you’ll be

Torquay, Devon, United Kingdom

Grosvenor House is in a quiet but central Torquay location. We are not too far from the town centre, but locally there are a few stores for essentials, a couple of takeaways and restaurants, a nice pub, post boxes and cash machines!

So when did we know that we’d made the right choice, giving up well-paid jobs, to risk it all and buy a guest house? Really, as soon as our first guest bought us a lovely thank-you card. We knew then, our aim of providing a warm friendly welcome, clean and comfy rooms, a healthy or hearty breakfast, and value for money was on the mark. Since that day in spring (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , we’ve greeted hundreds of guests in the same way. Some, of course, are just transient. A fleeting stop, travelling to Land’s End, not realising a week here, still isn't long enough to enjoy the English Riviera. Fortunately, so many more stay longer, visit regularly and become great friends. THE reward, for taking THAT risk! Paula’s background was in customer services, Ray’s in event management and journalism. We hankered to be our own bosses before we were 50. Fed up working for ‘The Man’, Ray is, of course, now working for ‘The Woman!’ Having hosted big events for family and friends, including our (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) wedding, and been hands-on with our holiday rental in Florida, albeit from (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) miles away, our skills were ideal for running a guesthouse. Travelling the country for the right location, we fell in love, the second we caught our first glimpse of the English Riviera. Smitten once we saw the beaches, countryside and wealth of natural and man-made attractions. So, Torquay and Grosvenor House are home, for us, and cats Bluebell (mum) and Sprite (kitten), both now into senior feline years. If you take a drink on the patio, you may see them in their outdoor run. When it’s time to relax, green-fingered Paula keeps the pots and baskets looking bright. On a winter Saturday, with Torquay United coat and scarf, Paula cheers on the Gulls, as Ray commentates for the club’s radio service. We’re fans of Eurovision (UK fan club members), not just the week-long festival in May, but the whole build-up as countries select their songs. Staying with a musical theme, if time allows, Ray likes to play his synthesizers. Now you know us, we’d love to get to know you too and look forward to meeting you soon. Our aim is to help you have fun, in what we believe is probably the most diverse area in the country, for enjoyment, relaxation, and adventure, whether you are visiting family and friends, here on business, a romantic break, or a family holiday. To discuss any special requirements, and for the very latest availability and prices, please speak to Paula or Ray on (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) We look forward to meeting you.
