Melba House Bed and Breakfast Torquay

About Us – Melba House

The new owners of Melba House, Sharon and Mark Embleton look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful B&B accommodation in Torquay. Melba House is their lovely, luxurious English Riviera home. It is an elegant 1895 Victorian home perfectly located in a beautiful old tree-lined avenue in Torquay. Step out from the door and be strolling through the lovely Torre Abbey Gardens within a minute, and on the English Riviera seafront within another eight minutes, all of which are an easy level walk. We are proud of and work hard to preserve this heritage.

Our lovely, tranquil home is the perfect Torquay B&B accommodation whether on holiday or for business travel. Sit on the terrace, relax, and enjoy the afternoon sun with a drink, while watching the world go by or maybe even a cricket match.

The Riviera has something to satisfy everyone’s desires from the cultural aspect at the Princess theatre to beautiful local walks or rides along the coast. Sharon and Mark will do their best to accommodate everything you may require in as homely a manner as possible.
