We have stayed here so many times now I have lost count! We try to have 2-3 short breaks here every year and the last 2 years because we have not been abroad being able to stay at Belle Dene has been a godsend to us. Dave and Carol are very accommodating and go out of their way to help you and coffee and cake on arrival is very nice too! Breakfast is also freshly cooked and not waiting around for you to self serve as well as being local meat and produce. Everything around you is on the flat and a good walking distance to the beach, pub's restaurants and pier. You are also able to park your car in their car park which is always a bonus when you go away. Covid-19 precautions are still in place here which is reassuring with the rising rates again.
The Belle Dean hotel is in a wonderful location to the front and town centre, David and Carol are very friendly and made us feel really welcome greeting is with tea and cake helped us to our room with luggage. Breakfast was great nothing was to much with home made jams and bread and potato cakes, room was very clean, there is off street parking would highly recommend this guesthouse
If you are looking for a lovely guest house in a great location, with a warm welcome, beautifully decorated comfortable rooms and a fabulous breakfast then Belle Dean is the guest house to choose when visiting this area. I have stayed there at least 6 times now and would not stay anywhere else. Carol and Dave have worked very hard to make this a great place to stay with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a great stay. The location is perfect too, a two minute walk to the beach front and within easy reach of all the beautiful local attractions. I cannot rate Belle Dene highly enough!
Belle Dene Guest House is situated a stone's throw from Paignton Beach, a perfect location to visit the towns and villages and other attractions of Torbay. When we arrived, we were greeted by Carol and offered tea and coffee and a slice of Dave's delicious fruit cake. A well received gesture! The free parking at the house was very convenient, and I felt our car was safe whilst we were off exploring. Carol and Dave have the most inviting oasis of a garden in front of the house, which was perfect to relax in and watch the birds, with many and varied plants. Our smoker took advantage of this space early in the morning and late evening. The guest house was very clean, tidy and welcoming. Masks were worn by our hosts and guests. We had the twin room, which was very comfortable, and provided facilities to make hot drinks, dry hair, watch TV and use WiFi. A lovely touch was having a selection of toiletries in the shower room. We were also shown how to use the house keys to come and go when we pleased. Belle Dene's breakfasts are legendary! Plenty of choice, quality ingredients and beautifully cooked and prepared. Thumbs up to the chef/s! Breakfasts were served in a charming, seaside themed, and spotlessly clean dining room. The dining room could be used to eat any takeaway food guests brought back. Carol and Dave give very good value for the price, and are friendly and helpful. It was such a treat staying with them! We recommend that you go and stay with them too!…
Another great stay with Carol and Dave, Fanatic hosts, Spotless accommodation and a smashing breakfast. Perfect central location and a great base to explore the area. Will definitely be back. Not why you would stay anywhere else in Torbay. See you next year guys!
