Lovely stay at Kate's place. The room was in really good condition with nice decoration. The bathroom was really nice but the only problem was the shower head wasn't quite tall enough (I'm 5ft11 and my boyfriend is 6ft2). Kate was great with communication and ensured that we had everything we needed. The location of the apartment was ideal to go and explore Devon and the view from Kate's balcony is spectacular. Thanks again for a great stay.

Response from Kate:
Thank you so much for staying with us and pleased you enjoyed it! I’m so sorry about the shower - since having the bathroom fitted, we’ve noticed that the shower head works it’s way down within the supports over time. We thought that we’d remedied this with adhesive but could see it needed redoing when you left! Have fixed it back up ready for the next guests so thank you for your feedback.

The room is in a fairly modern building, one of three blocks with a substantial and well-tended communal garden. Kate and Paul's flat was very clean and spacious. The view over the bay 'is to die for'. It really is something special and you can see the weather rolling in and out. The room was very comfortable with hanging space, a small desk and synthetic pillows and duvet - great if you have allergies, like me. The bathroom is across the little lobby and is big, grey and clean with good quality towels and little toiletries. The nearest shops are about 15 min walk. You can walk straight down to Torquay Harbour and all the restaurants and beach. There is a delightful ferry to Brixham and superb walks all around the coast. Definitely the sort of place with plenty to do for several days. I can thoroughly recommend Kate and Paul's place.

Kate's place was ideal, close to town, stunning view and balcony. Kate is a great host and really made a big effort to make sure I was happy and looked after. A great place to stay for a couple of nights or longer south plenty to explore in the immediate vicinity.

Kate was a wonderful host! Her home was wonderfully neat, quiet, warm, with a staggering view! We loved her sincere desire for us to enjoy our time in lovely Torquay. Its just residential enough to be quiet, yet 15 minutes walk to downtown w/bus service out front. We had a WONDERFUL visit to Torquay, in great part to your accommodations. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay at Kate and Paul's place. The location of the apartment is great and convenient . It is in a very nice and quite residential area, approx. 10 mins walking to the town centre. Amazing sea view from the living room! The bedroom is lovely, and the bathroom is perfectly clean and seems to be recently renovated. Both Kate and Paul are very nice hosts, they provided us with all the information we needed about the stay and the surroundings. Easy check-in and check-out and smooth communications all the way through. We would definitely recommend to stay at Kate and Paul's place! It was a lovely experience :)

Kate and Paul were great hosts, we had an easy check in with Paul and the room and apartment were as described and perfect. Great location 10/15 min walk to town or beach and we got a taxi home which was only £4.50 to save our legs as it's all uphill getting back. They have balcony with an amazing view which is a great was to start the day with the breakfast provided. Kate prepared a folder with all info needed which was a great help. Could not recommend enough and if ever back in Torquay would certainly stay again.
