Torre Room

The 25 is in the Sunday Times today!


We're very proud to announce that we've made it to the Sunday Times Top 100 Places to Stay list which was published today, being one of only ten B&Bs.

Here's the full write up from their website...

"Prince William was a regular at the country-house hotel that Andy and Julian Banner-Price once ran in Caernarfon — they have a framed photograph of them with HRH to prove it. Yet for all their success in Snowdonia, the couple wanted to downsize and offer a more personalised service. This adults-only, six-bedroom place is the result, and it’s bursting with personality.

One room, Torre, has black and white stripes to match the zebra’s head mounted on its wall (he’s called Frank), and they’ve added dollops of yellow to soften the monochrome moodboard. Oddicombe takes its inspiration from a flame-coloured gerbera, with a close-up frieze of dew-draped tangerine petals across the wall behind the wrought-iron bed. There’s a tangerine chest of drawers, a tangerine Nespresso machine, a tangerine pen with the notepad on the desk and a dainty original fireplace, topped by a vase of gerberas on the mantelpiece. Take a wild guess at their colour. All rooms have king-size or superking beds, smart TVs with movies on demand, mood lighting, iPads loaded with local tourist information and swanky bathrooms with mist-free mirrors and Elemis toiletries.

Downstairs is more subdued. The sitting room is in restful champagne shades and the breakfast room has delicate floral wallpaper. Their award-winning breakfast menu features all the usual suspects, from full English to eggs Benedict, as well as smoothies made by Julian. The biggest surprise at the 25 is the location; it’s in staid, old-fashioned Torquay. Yet the couple will assure you that it’s all change on the English Riviera, with the former two-Michelin-starred chef John Burton-Race recently opening a restaurant near the seafront, and bar staff who don’t look blankly at patrons who ask for craft beer and cosmopolitans."



Just another excuse to come & stay if you haven't already.

If you have been before, isn't it time you came back?

We're open until the end of October, then apart from a couple of weekends in December, we're closed until the middle of February.  However, you can book now for any time in 2018 at www.the25.uk.
