We’ve just finished our first summer of being open and what a ride! We decided to open slowly to ensure we were able to dedicate ourselves to the needs of each one of our new guests.
I have to admit it was nerve-wracking in the beginning, knowing that our guests were coming to us to feel pampered and cared for.
We wanted to ensure they all left us feeling like they had really had a break and were fully recharged, especially after the challenges after the last year
At first, getting into a new routine was challenging. There was a lot to do to ensure everyone could enjoy a memorable breakfast, felt welcome and happy in pristine and comfy rooms, and that all requests for an enjoyable stay were quickly met.
We are now fully into the rhythm of our new life and look forward to the arrival of our new guests each day. It has been wonderful getting to know the awesome people who have chosen to come and stay with us. We’ve so enjoyed hearing your stories, sharing laughs and tips on what to do and where to go in beautiful Torquay.
Despite our initial decision to start slowly, we were soon fully booked for most days of the summer season – we really appreciate your support!
We are taking a short break now for further refurbishments, but we will be back soon with some exciting plans for the Christmas season.
Thanks to all of you who came to stay with us for a while and became friends along the way, we hope to see you all again soon!
