'Elaine and Martyn are superb hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they are welcoming, friendly and attentive without being overpowering. The area of Torquay is handy and very quiet. The room we stayed in, Tuscany, was lovely; so comfortable that my wife nearly arranged for the bed to be taken home! The breakfasts were a delight and my wife\'s gluten free diet was well catered for. We hadn\'t been to Torquay or Hillcroft before but very tempted to return to see our \'friends\' Elaine and Martyn.'

Coming form London were we live all is flat so climbing 4 flights of stais was a new to us, as was Torwuay being so hilly but after a while it was okay. Martin and Elaine are very proactive in that if you have an issue or problem in the room they will endevour to solve it for you, added with that their local knowledge is great. When we return to our newly purchased timeshare next year we will be paying them a visit for a drink and catchup.'

We dealt with Martyn more bug it was lovely that we had mentioned we\'d just got engaged and that\'s why we booked the penthouse and there on the table from them both was an engagement card. How thoughtful, obviously really care about their guests and Individual reasons for staying. Breakfast was lovely wity juices and cerials and fruit then a menu to choose what you wanted hot (poached eggs, full Breakfast, omelette etc) which was delicious. As soon as we arrived we were given cake and coffee while filling out the form and given room key. It has 5 rooms but you don\'t feel on top dog each other or like rooms are really close. We did have penthouse which was whole of top floor though. Love to come back. Love the idea of themed rooms so if we do go back be like staying in another place.

Night away
4 stars 4

'Very nice place, parking was ok but a bit of a squeeze to get in with a large 4x4. Lovely room, a little cold in November but nevermind. Good nights sleep apart from being cold in the room, soft mattress and squeaky bed!!! Breakfast was ok but unable to add an extra sausage even though it was supposed to be cooked from fresh?? Would go back one day.'

Stylish stay
5 stars 5

'This is a guest house with a difference. What sets it apart from many other establishments is the interior design with guest rooms and the communal areas being decorated and furnished in a variety of \'asiatic\' styles. In addition I and my partner found the bed to be very comfortable ensuring a sound sleep and the choice and quality of food at breakfast would be hard to improve on. The hosts, who had only be managing the venue for several weeks, were very welcoming and helped as locate the cinema for the film we wished to see.'

Unique Boutique B&B
5 stars 5

'The description of this B&B was certainly no exaggeration. Each room was beautifully decorated. We stayed in the India Suite and had 3 restful nights on a luxurious 4 poster bed. Our friendly hosts Martyn & Elaine had only just taken over running The Hillcroft but you would never have known,. Breakfast was delicious, including fresh fruit salad with blueberries and pomegranate. Elaine's omelettes are fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone to stay here.'

4 stars 4

'We stayed in the Provence Suite at the top of the house. Everything was immaculate and not a spot of dust to be found.It is well worth to pay a little extra to have a suite of rooms. I think car parking could be a problem as only a small car park at the rear, not big enough to accommodate all the cars if the hotel was full and there are yellow lines in the surrounding roads. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented, our only complaint is that it is only served until 915am, other establishments offer a much later time.'

Home from home with special touches
5 stars 5

'It was lovely to be greeting by a smiling face. First impressions when you walked through the door into the hallway was the wood panelling which was lovely. We were taken into the bar for a sit down, which was a lovely room which opened up onto the light and airy breakfast room, high ceilings, beautiful cornices, what you would expect in an English villa. We were treated to tea and a slice of cake. our room, which was The Penthouse Suite was at the top of the building and totally private. It was a very pleasant surprise to discover that the lounge , bathroom & bedroom were all proper separate rooms, rather then what a lot of hotels do and just fit all three into one room. It was excellent having a separate lounge as after a long day out you could relax properly and my husband likes to stop up late watching TV which he could do to his hearts content, there was an additional TV in the bedroom aswell. The lounge was light & airy with neutral soft sofa and chair, modern large slimline LED TV. Various choice of teas, coffee and chocolate and bottled water was freely available as biscuits aswell. Lovely antique wooden furniture in the room and a very much appreciated fan as we were there in the heatwave. The bathroom was very large with walls and openings done in stone. Nice overhead shower and if needed free shower gel, hand lotion, soaps, shower caps, sewing kits, lovely large towels and bath robes, tasteful ornaments and it was nice that thought has been taken for ladies at that certain time of the month (hope this was eloquently put. The bedroom was really large with an extremely soft mattress, extra pillows and blankets were available in the room if needed. Tissues boxes were in the bedroom and bathroom, lovely antique bedroom furniture. A thoroughly wonderful stay, only one teeny grumble breakfast was too early 8.30 to 9.15 at w/ends & 8.30 to 9.00 weekdays. Good choice of all breakfast options. Run by a lovely friendly couple. Would come again as it was a lovely.'

'Had a wonderful stay at The Hillcroft. Upon arrival we given a cup of tea and some cake, we were made to feel really welcome. We slept very well there, the bed was one of the best we've slept in, bar our own. Breakfast was top notch. A good choice of fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals to start with. Then a choice of something cooked. We had the full English a couple of times, and poached eggs and scrambled eggs on toast. All was good, but the bacon especially was of a high standard! Would highly recommend staying here.'

'This was a fantastic relaxing stay in a beautiful hotel, we booked the penthouse suite which was the whole top floor, it was very spacious, private and comfortable...best nights sleep weve had in years. Stuart and Karen were extremely kind and helpfull, we were provided fresh filtered coffee and cake on arrival which was a pleasent welcome, after a slight hiccup with the taxi, Stuart drove us into town where we enjoyed a nice dinner and got t taxi back no problems costing £3.90. The breakfast was delicious and filling, cooked and served but Stuart and Karen. We will be returning for another fantastic stay in the future. Overall we felt this hotel had a lovely personal touch and a cut above the rest, nothing seemed too much. Thank you'

'Thought The Hillcroft was Simply the Best. In a brilliant position quiet but only a ten minute walk to the town centre of Torquay. Our room was lovely and we had a brilliant view of the church and surrounding country side in the distance. Excellent breakfast all cooked to orde. It made a lovely change from the hustle and bustle of a packed busy hotel. Owners were lovely and hospitable, the place was spotless with some lovely touches such as white dressing gowns and supplied toiletries which were of good quality. We will be going back.
