About Us

Best B&B in the world! (Twice! - TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards 2019 & 2020).  Come and see why.

If you think of Fawlty Towers when you think of Torquay then think again!

Funky design meets cutting-edge technology at this adults only boutique B&B which is multi-award winning.

The 25 offers six individually styled luxurious bedrooms to relax in, each with a fabulous en-suite.  Each room is completely different - see our website for lots of photos, full description and videos.  They feature the latest smart technology so you can operate the air conditioning, TV and lighting with Amazon's "Alexa" aswell as play music or interact with it.  

You’ll be greeted warmly, receive great service and appreciate lots of little touches you just don’t get elsewhere. The hosts Andy & Julian do everything so it's a really friendly attmosphere.

The 25 has onsite parking with spaces for all rooms.  The beach, restaurants, Torquay town and tourist attractions are a short flat walk away, the closest being Torre Abbey less than a five minute walk.

Fast Wi-fi, Nespresso coffee machines, air-con (ideal on the English Riviera!), iPads, fluffy dressing gowns, fresh milk, free movies on demand, Elemis toiletries, high pressure showers, homemade biscuits, mood lighting and super comfortable beds all come as standard.

In some rooms you’ll also find extras like a slipper bath, super-king beds and bathroom TVs.

Breakfast is also award winning and there's a great choice of hot and cold items both cooked to order and from the buffet selection on the sideboard.  We cater for vegetarians, gluten free and vegan diets too.  You'll need to stay several days to be able to sample all the different choices from the traditional full breakfast using local butcher's sausages, to Eggs Benedict or Royale or why not try the "Banner-Price Beans"?  

Explore our website & look at our excellent reviews.  We don't take children so it's a relaxing place to stay.  There's ample parking and free Wi-Fi.

Book direct for the best price - guaranteed.  Why not become a VIP Guest to qualify for a further discount and offers?

Location : 10-15 min level walk to the seafront through the picturesque Torre Abbey Gardens and then on to the harbour which is another 10-15 mins. Taxis are also plentiful.  There's really no need for a car.  You can arrive by train (two stations within 10 min walk) and use ferries, trains, buses or walk practically everywhere.  Torquay is a great base for exploring the wider area too such as Dartmoor, Plymouth or Exeter.

If you've not been to the area before you'll be amazed at the amount of things to do from museums to castles, stately homes to shopping, water sports to walking and much more besides.  See the Location page on our website for more information or have a read of Andy's blogs for inspiration.  If you're just looking to relax, we've got that covered too.  Less than 15 minutes walk brings you to a variety of bars and restaurants with outdoor seating in the sun or just stay here.  With such comfy bedrooms, Netflix, a bar and Andy's homemade daily treats you don't even need to leave!  There's a comfy Drawing Room to sit and read the newspaper or book in, or our sun terrace is a real sun trap until about 9pm in summer.

Torquay is a real foodie destination and has many wonderful restaurants and we'll recommend our favourites when you book (pre-booking essential).  We've got everything from great pubs, to local fish bistos and even a Michelin star restaurant.  

We really look forward to welcoming you to our award winning B&B in Torquay very soon.

Andy & Julian.

 From the M5 travelling South, Torquay is signposted as it ends and becomes the A38, then the A380.  Stay on the same road and it becomes the A3022 Riviera Way then Newton Road.  At Torre Station, this becomes Avenue Road.  We are on the left hand side, just past the traffic lights.  We have a free car park.
