Outstanding place to stay!! Just home from an absolutely fantastic week in Torquay which was made even better by the beautiful guest house we stayed in. The Millbrook really is superb. The room we stayed in (room 2) was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and really comfortable. The hosts Claire and Ben were absolutely lovely and the breakfast was scrumptious with lots of choice. The COVID controls were excellent but managed so well, it did not spoil anything so we felt really safe and completely relaxed too. Extra special touches like a homemade biscuit in the room on arrival and a bag with fruit and water for the journey home we’re just amazing and so thoughtful. We will most definitely visit again and would highly recommend this guest house to anybody else. You will not be disappointed!!

5 star gem of a find Found The Millbrook whilst looking for accommodation in Torquay. A fraction of the cost of Premier Inn etc, so I was slightly dubious. Well I had absolutely nothing to worry about, what a perfect gem of a find. Claire messaged us beforehand to advise of Covid protocols and our estimated time of arrival. When we arrived we had a parking space at no extra cost. Claire greeted us and went through all the details. Our room was a king size and it didn’t fail to impress, very modern decor. Room came with a mini fridge, which had 2 bottles of water. Home baked cookies, which were demolished with a cuppa, delicious. You message Claire with your breakfast menu every evening from a large choice of items. All cooked fresh by Ben, at your choice of sitting. I am so missing being able to do that now I am home! Do not hesitate folks, get this booked, lovely couple, fabulous B&B, great location. We will most certainly be back. Thanks both.

Brilliant and comfortable stay! Me and my partner was supposed to be going to Spain but due to covid we postponed to next year and booked Torquay instead. Looking on booking.com at places, we found this perfect and beautiful b&b for a fraction of the price of some of the other places and this was just as beautiful and well looked after. The room was surprisingly bigger than I thought, had everything you could possibly need and more, even Claires homemade shortbread which was a lovely touch and very yummy btw. Had plenty of forms to fill out for extra supplies such as water, tea, coffee, shower gels etc for the week we were there for and information surrounding the covid measures was very helpful. It's an ideal location to go for a stroll to the beach, the fair that was there at the time, the shops, bars and restaurants, it was just perfect. Absolutely loved our stay. Claire and Ben are so friendly and make you feel so welcome straight away, Claire took the time to write down some buses that we would need to visit places like Brixham and Paignton and told us where to get them from and which stops to get off at. She couldn't have been more helpful, so really appreciated that. Also when we checked out, she supplied us with bottles of water and fruit for our long journey back home which was such a lovely thing to do, really topped off a perfect week away. Didn't want to go home to be honest. Thank you again for your hospitality Claire and Ben and hope to stay again very soon. Keep doing what you do, you're fab! Hannah and Alex

Fantastic B&B highly recommended Absolutely loved staying at The Millbrook. Hosts Ben & Claire were lovely and hoping next time we can get to know them more as I accidentally booked no breakfast so therefore didn't get to see them much. The rooms are beautiful and have everything you need for a break away, all the little extras are what makes the difference. Even on the days we were just chilling the outside area is really nice to chill out in and it's so peaceful.

A great place For our impulsive short break away this was a gem of a find. Claire was very attentive, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day. We wished we could have stayed longer, so we will definitely return again.

Excellent mid week break With only 3 nights available in our packed retirement schedule (can I blame the children for that?) it was important for us to find good all round accommodation…. Well we found excellent. The location meant no driving for us and a safe free car park was a bonus. The hotel is immaculately kept and has all we required from a B&B. Rooms are spotless and comfy with extras not expected (home made biscuits). From the arrival Clare is so caring & lovely & Ben can cook, you could not have nicer hosts. I so looked forward to breakfast. Being a short walk to Torquay meant the stroll home after eating out was a welcome stretch. Torre Abbey has lovely gardens. The only thing we didn’t like was leaving and we will be returning with more of the family. All being said this stay was one of our favourites & excellent value for money.

Another Brilliant Stay Once again we had the most amazing time staying at the Millbrook, Ben and Claire are incredible hosts nothing is ever too much for them. The room was a great size and had been perfectly cleaned with everything we needed and more! Claire’s handmade biscuits were lovely! Breakfast was delicious, the ingredients are high quality and local which is great. It was cooked brilliantly, particularly the poached eggs. Claire once again was very attentive ensuring everything we wanted/needed was there. Brilliant stay, amazing hosts! Cannot wait to come back!!!
