About Us

The Southbourne Villa Guest House in Torquay has been extensively refurbished to a high standard, while still retaining its original, Victorian charm.  Our bed and breakfast accommodation is situated in a quiet conservation area near to Torre Abbey sands (0.7 miles), Torre Abbey Museum (0.4 miles) and Riviera International Conference Centre (0.6 miles). Princess Theatre (1.2 miles) and a wide selection of award-winning local restaurants, bistros and wine bars are all just a stroll away. We are also close to Torquay (0.8 miles) and Torre railway stations (0.6 miles), and a short taxi ride will get you to us.  Ample parking is available within the grounds for visitors arriving by car or motorbike.

We offer a comfortable and relaxing place to stay and while away the hours at your leisure during a short break or week-long holiday in South Devon.  The English Riviera is a top seaside destination with award-winning beaches, a UNESCO Global Geopark, 22 miles of breath-taking coastline and landscape which forms part of the famous, South West Coast Path. Torquay and the neighbouring towns of Paignton (3 miles) and Brixham (8.2 miles) provide plenty of day and night time entertainment including fascinating visitor attractions (Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves, Babbacombe Cliff Railway, Berry Head National Nature Reserve); bowling and tennis courts; golf courses; fine-dining restaurants; wine bars, historic pubs and nightclubs. 

All our guest bedrooms are decorated and maintained to a high standard. Your comfort is of paramount importance to us, and all guest rooms are serviced daily to ensure your room remains fresh, comfortable and clean for the duration of your stay. Our rooms are located on ground and first floor level with a choice of Four Poster, Super-King Double, Superior Double, Classic Double, Boutique Double and a Classic Single with a double bed. We provide quality bed linen and towels, TV with digital channels and DVD/CD player, an electric fan, ironing facilities, hairdryer, clock radio alarm, room safe, bath robes, complimentary toiletries and accessories including a shower cap and sewing kit. We also provide hospitality trays with a selection of teas, infusions, coffee and luxury biscuits as well as a small refrigerator with fresh milk and mineral water and a place for you to store your drinks for consumption in the room.

Our spacious, ground floor dining room is where we serve breakfast each morning. Our room rates are per room based on two persons occupying a double en-suite and include a delicious, made-to-order Full English or Continental Breakfast. A single person supplement will apply for sole occupancy of Double, Super-King or Four Poster rooms.  

The guests lounge, also located on the ground floor, has sumptuous leather sofas to relax into and the room leads out on the illuminated sun terrace, a popular spot with guests who enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, the Mediterranean-style climate or just watch the sun go down over Torquay and the English Riviera.  We offer free Wi-Fi internet connection throughout Southbourne Villa and grounds.

A warm welcome is always guaranteed so sit back, relax and enjoy your stay in our guest house. The Southbourne Villa is entirely no smoking throughout for your comfort and safety.

In order to ensure a tranquil and restful environment for our guests, we regret that we do not accept pets with the exception of Guide Dogs for the disabled, children under 14 years or stag, hen or wedding parties.

The Southbourne Villa Guest House is a comfortable and relaxing place in which to stay and while away the hours at your leisure.  Come and stay, then see why our guests return to us time after time.  For details on availability please contact us direct.  We are looking forward to welcoming you to Southbourne Villa.
