The Downs, Babbacombe is a Victorian terraced property built over 150 years ago. As such many of our room layouts are dictated by the construction of the property and every one of our rooms is different.

To ensure consistant quality for our guests throughout, all of our rooms have been refurbished, many bathrooms have been totally refitted and all bedrooms have pocket sprung beds of the largest size to fit the room. We have tried to keep all of the soft furnishings tasteful and appropriate and for your convenience still provide luxury toiletries and a full compliment of hot drink making facilities.

In recognition of the emphasis and importance we put on quality we have been awarded a Gold Accolade from the AA on top of the 4 stars we already held, this in addition to a Breakfast award and a Dinner award from the AA. We have also been awarded 4 stars from VisitEngland aswell as a Gold Award for quality of accommodation and customer service and a Breakfast Award. We were also crowned as Winner of the Small Boutique Hotel or Guest Accommodation category at The Herald Express South Devon Tourism & Hospitality Awards in November 2018. At the end of September 2018 were contacted by HotelsCombined to be advised that we had been awarded their 2018 Recognition of Excellence. This award is in recognition for consistently achieving high standards of customer satisfaction. Something we are very committed to. In October 2018 we were awarded the prestigious VisitEngland ROSE Award in Recognition of Service Excellence. This is an annual award that is only given to the top 100 quality assessed establishments in the whole of the UK. In October 2013 we received the Gold Award in the Bed & Breakfast, Guest House & Inn of the Year category at The South Devon Tourism & Hospitality Awards.
