The 25 Boutique B&B
Andy and Julian have worked hard to transform this establishment from the relatively mainstream to the exceptional, and they continue to work tirelessly to create a unique guest experience. Their attention to detail is exacting, exemplified by the colour-matched Nespresso machines in the bedrooms – such touches are sure to make guests feel appreciated. The bedrooms have great personality and individuality and the smart, sparkling bathrooms certainly don’t disappoint either. Quirky, flamoyant touches, like the zebra with sunglasses, are used judiciously to guarantee a smile, but they are never at the expense of comfort, ease of use or practicality. With Andy and Julian’s great eye for design and lighting, guests experience a real sense of anticipation from the moment they step through the front door. It’s worth noting that this B&B has had a real impact on the overall standards of other accommodation providers in Torquay – where they lead, others are following.
