Excellent Stay at Brierfields
My wife and I with two friends stayed at Brierfields and there was absolutely nothing we could fault. Our rooms were spotless and it had everything you would need.The host's Charlie and Julie were absolutely welcoming and breakfast was something else which gave us full stomachs for the day and it was cooked to perfection. This was our second stay and our friends it was their first visit. There is no doubt we will be back. Definitely five stars.
It was a great b&b
The standard of the room was 100% could not ask for more, the food was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. It's 5 star rating is well deserving for Charlie & Julie.
Beautifully clean and a very comfortable bed. Helpful hosts and a fabulous breakfast. Couldn’t have asked for more. We will be back. Thank you
Excellent Bed and Breakfast, spotlessly clean and comfortable
We stayed at Briarfields for 2 nights at the weekend in August. We had a very comfortable stay, room was spotless and very comfortable. Home made shortbread in the room (very nice), along with fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge. Good location, a short walk from the sea front, free parking on site. Great hosts, very helpful and friendly, would definitely stay again.
Excellent food, clean and very comfortable room with perfect location for easyaccess to train station, Torre Abbey and other local sights. I felt well looked after by Charlie and Julie Ann with many personal touches from them both without intrusion. I've been coming to Torquay for over 20 years and I can say, hand on heart, that this was by far the best accommodation I've experienced. I will be booking into the Briarfields for my annual visit next year!
Our second stay this year, but just as fabulous as the first time. It's so clean and quiet, rooms are great. Charlie and Julie-Ann are brilliant, and the breakfasts are super. I think I've said it all!
The Briarfields torquay
Very pleasurable stay. Our room was very comfortable, nicely decorated and modern, everythingyou would expect and more, including a small fridge and air conditioning. Homemade biscuits, bottles of water and milk, was a lovely touch. The breakfast was delicious, we tried most of the menu, all excellent. Our hosts were very nice, would definitely recommend a stay here
First class guest house, lovely owners can’t do enough for you.Always there to help if needed.Room was 5 star absolutely spotless, lots of little touches milk and water in fridge, home made shortbread.Breakfast was excellent you will never be hungry while staying there.Just wished we had booked for longer rather than staying for a couple of days. Most enjoyable stay and will definitely be going back.It’s a pity we can’t give it more than 5 stars.
What a really lovely place. Great room, very smart, fantastic breakfasts with good choices to make in advance so served very hot and fresh, little touches homemade shortbread in room and sweet treat at end of breakfast. Would stay again thank you Charlie and Julie-Anne.

Great! Your hospitality is amazing, your rooms are comfortabel and clean and your food is delicious!
Had a fantastic weekend the hotel was loverly and Charlie and Julie Ann was fantastic hosts the breakfast was just perfect we walked to the beach so that was good homemade biscuits and tea coffee when we arrived loverly place as no children so that was so special as I have young children living with us the towel was beautiful and the hand soap was loverly I could go on and on it was just perfect for us and if we go to Torquay again we would not want to go anywhere else
Wonderful place to stay
I was driving 250 miles in an EV to get to Torquay, and wanted a place with a charger. I contacted Briarfields before arriving and asked to book it for my trip, and was pleased to arrive and find it waiting for me. Which made a great first impression.We were greeted by Charlie and given a quick welcome tour, then we went up to our room and discovered a beautifully decorated, spacious room and bathroom. Very comfortable room and bed.The property is a very easy walk to the seafront, complete with fair, big wheel, restaurants, bars, etc. Charlie gave us clear directions, and we were walking the front in no time.Breakfast was lovely every morning. You make your choice the night before, pick a time, and then it's ready in no time when you get downstairs in the morning. So much easier than having to wait for your choice to be cooked after you order it.Charlie and Julie were really nice and friendly. We had a good chat one morning, and they were always available and willing to help if needed.We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and will definitely return.
This was our first experience staying within a B&B and it exceeded our expectations. The room was clean, comfortable and we were greeted with such kindness and Charlie was very accommodating on our arrival. The breakfast was delicious and both Charlie and Julie went out of their way to ensure that they catered for our specific dietary requirements. We both really appreciated it and this made our stay in Torquay even more memorable. Location was perfect and we would definitely recommend this B&B to family and friends.
We stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely time. Everything was clean and comfortable and there were lots of extra little touches like making sure we had fresh milk and water in our room everyday and homemade shortbread. The food was excellent too. Lovely couple. Will definitely come back.
Had a really nice stay,lots of care and love gone into this beautiful B&B.Really good choice at breakfast freshly cooked , nice 10 min walk to beach.Would definitely go again.
Fantastic B&B !
We spent 7 nights in Torquay staying at Briarfields. Julie-Anne and Charlie are lovely hosts and made us both feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts are amazing , great food and lots to choose from. Comfy bed and huge bath towels. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Charlie and Julie-Anne for a great break.
Amazing 5 star B&B
Briarfields is a wonderful place to stay, the owners are a lovely couple who can’t do enough for you.The B&B is spotlessly clean, our room was a large room with a Separate lounge area including a second tv & mini fridge. The homemade shortbread & bottles of water were a lovely touch.There is an excellent breakfast menu to choose from and the food served is of the highest standard, and definitely plenty of it!!We would highly recommend Briarfields to anyone you will not be disappointed.
It was an cosy experience to stay at the Briarfields for 2 nights on a stop-over travelling in Cornwall & Devon.The room was very clean with a side lounge for relaxation. Breakfast, prepared to order, was excellent. Certainly our host/hostess are extremely friendly and provided guidance on our questions.
The Briarfields is an exceptional small hotel.The host are welcoming and generous, catered for my mum’s needs providing almond milk.Made our stay (myself and parents) very special.The rooms are beautiful, spotlessly clean, and comfortable.Delicious breakfasts which will leave you full to the brim.Lovely touches such as the homemade shortbread and complimentary teas.A great location, being a short walk to the sea front and a 5 min drive to Torquay station which was handy as we travelled by train.A wonderful stay.
5 star stay 🤩
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Briarfields, from the initial warm welcome from Charlie andJulie-Anne to the comfortable, spotlessly clean accommodation and the absolutely delicious breakfast which was very much enjoyed each morning!We would recommend a stay at Briarfields without hesitation.
A 3 Night Visit
We would recommend the Briarfield based on our recent stay. The location is easy to find with adequate parking. The house is meticulously kept. Our room was very nice and the beds comfortable. Charlie who carried the bags is also the chef, we both enjoyed the food. We found Charlie and Julie both friendly and accommodating. We would stay here again if we were visiting the Torquay area.
Charlie and Julie are absolutely charming and have this wonderful BnB well in hand. There is nothing missing in the environment, accommodations or food. The Briarfields is the only place we will stay when we come back to the Torquay area. We look forward to visiting again!
We've enjoyed our stay at the Briarfields with Julie-Anne and Charly very much. Rom was spacious and clean. Charly is a former chef and takes great price in serving his guests a lovely breakfast wit Juli-Anne taking care of guests and making toast. We most certainly recommend the Briarfields and would love to come back in the future.
The two people that own and run this place,are probably the two nicest folk I've met in a long time,the place was spotless,and the small detailsyou find are subtle,and there everywhere, the breakfast is amazingly filling,and if that's not enough,Charlieor Julie-Anne,,return with more toast and then home made pastries(mouth watering now),to top this review,couldn't be better,shame Charlie supports Rangers.But that's not held against him,oh and there always brilliant conversation with the other guests
Charlie and Julie-anne were great could not do enough to help especially as our car had broke down a great breakfast as usual this was our second stay and will be returning next year
Excellent facilities amazing food
Rooms were modern and clean with plenty of amenities in the rooms, rooms were tided every day with snacks and water being topped up, lots of choices for breakfast were available and food was served quickly and tasted amazing
Lonely stay at the Briarfields
We had a lovely long weekend stay at the Briarfields.Charlie and Julie-Anne are super friendly and made us feel at home during our stay. They provided a wonderful breakfast with some of the best selection of anywhere I’ve stayed!The rooms are clean and homely and made for a really pleasant stay. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wishing to stay in Torquay!
Fab hosts, nothing was too much trouble for Charlie and Julie Ann. They always went the extra mile. Lovely room with lots of little extras. Charlie’s home baked shortbread was the best. Great breakfasts always presented to a high standard combined with the best ingredients. Will definitely be staying again. Highly rrecommended. Lovely hotel with brilliant hosts. Thank you Charlie and Julie Ann for a great stay.
Excellent b and b
We stayed for 2 nights and were welcomed on arrival, biscuits,milk,water etc in our room. Extremely friendly hosts/owners and very good breakfast with added cakes/pastries. Highly recommend
Hardly anything can think of to improve
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your guest house, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and delicious breakfast, will book again with you on my next visit!
Stayed 6 nights excellent holiday - large room was perfect and very comfortable -although on busy road no noise at all due to triple glazing with air con available if required. Breakfast was excellent with good choice and anything we wanted was provided by the hosts. Electric car charging point added bonus. Would be very happy to stay again
Quality , Comfort and Soecial
Beautiful room great sleep and fantastic breakfast. Super hosts Julie and Charlie make you feel welcome and special they go out of their way to make your stay something to remember. We will be back for sure.
Arrived at The Briarfeilds on 10 July 2023.We were given a very warm, friendly greeting from Charlie,whom then proceeded to assist us with our luggage up to our room. He informed us that he had upgraded our room at no extra cost. Our room was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. We had a mini fridge which was re stocked every day with milk and bottled water. The tea and coffee making items were also re stocked as well while the room was cleaned daily. The breakfast menu has plenty of choices whatever your tastes are. Charlie was also prepared to make something not on the menu for my partners dietary needs. The breakfasts are simply delicious which ever option you choose. Overall Charlie and Julie-Anne are fantastic hosts who are warm and friendly and happy to do anything to make sure you're stay is comfortable. We look forward to another stay.
Book the briarfields for 3 days...I cansay I've stayed many places but this place is amongst the best I've ever stayed...Charlie and Julie Ann are the nicest people you could ever meet and very accomdating,the rooms were spacious and immaculately clean with nice little extras in the room abd the breakfast is to die for....I would recommend anyone to stay here and you won't be disssappointed cannot wait to book to go back in the future
We had a lovely one night stay at The Briarfields. Very clean and quiet room. Great location. Amazing selection for breakfast. Friendly hosts. Would definitely recommend!
Beautiful Vacation Spot
Charlie and Julie-Anne are warm, welcoming and very friendly people, the breakfast is out of this world as Charlie is an excellent chef with years of experience. Our room was designed beautifully with air conditioning and a huge en-suite bathroom. The fridge in the room is a welcoming touch, cold water in the morning is refreshing. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Torquay. It’s only 15 minutes walk to the center but it’s so peaceful and perfectly positioned to visit everything. Thank you for a lovely stay Chris & Claire
Just perfect,Charlie and Julie ann were just spot on as usual, as for the full English breakfast highlyrecommended.The room (suite 2) was as clean as like it had just been decorated, faultlessIf i was giving out the star rating I would be up to at least 7 if i could.Nigel & Lesley
Are stay here
Breakfast was great, good variety of food. Hosts great, Ideal for exploring Torquay
One of the Best!
What a fantastic b&b! In many ways it's home from home. Super bedrooms, great food and attentive hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and the accommodation only helped to enhance our overall experience of Torquay generally.
Excellent - Highly recommend
Absolutely loved our stay at Briarfields. Lovely rooms, great location and excellent breakfast. The owners were really helpful and couldnt do enough for us. Would definitely visit again.
All aspects excluded expectations.Service, Decoration, Breakfast, Cleanliness all five star +This B & B is a good reason to visit Torquay.
The best b&b we have ever stayed at
Thankyou Charlie and Julie-Anne for a wonderful weeks holiday you certainly put everything into making sure yout guests are looked after. Our room was clean and comfortable all the bedding and towels where top quality the air con and fridge everthing for a comfortable holiday. And Charlies breakfasts they where simply the best the menus the presentation could not have been better. Then there was the laughs we had.Thankyou both for a great holiday.
Top notch accommodation and friendly
Immaculate decor and a warm welcome with luggage assistance too. Great choices for breakfast, a good experience. Stayed as part of our 50th wedding anniversary trip and Charlie and Julie-Anne made it memorable in many ways. For us it was a great base to explore from and comfortable. Would stay again as there can’t be anything better in the area. Thanks for everything during our stay.
First class B&B
Excellent location, only a short walk to the seafront.Comfortable, tastefully decorated and well appointed bedroom (the air con was essential).Very good choice for breakfast, including optional delicious Stornoway black pudding.Charlie and Julie were friendly and welcoming hosts, making you feel relaxed and immediately at home.
First of all, Charlie and Julie-Ann are the penultimate hosts. When you think about a perfect B&B, you think about personally meeting friendly hosts who really care about you as a guest. Well, that’s Charlie and Julie-Ann. Second, you want everything to be high quality- clean, quality-products, and delicious breakfast. We can tell you that Briarfields is probably cleaner than you own place (that says a lot). The qualify products are everything including the bath products or the jams on the breakfast table. And, you wouldn’t find a better breakfast than Charlie’s. Seriously, I wouldn’t change a thing here, it’s that perfect.
In our opinion this is a fantasticplace to stay,for one night or more,Charlie and Julie-Ann,are the most accommodating people,you could ever wish to meet,the rooms are spotlessly clean,and a good size,especiallyif your partners on the largesize,(joking)all the usual tea and coffee thingies in the room,along with a fresh bottle of milk,each day,the 1/3 size,like we used to get at school,the breakfast is to die for(not literally)you understand, Charlie's cooking is great,along with probably the warmest welcome,you could ever get WELL DONE Charlie and Julie-Ann
Best In the West
We had another wonderful time at Briarfields.The room was spotless and perfect.The whole place is always beautifully clean and well run.Charlie’s breakfasts are legendary and it is very sad to get to the last one.Charlie and Julie-Ann are a delightful couple who always go the extra mile.Don’t miss this gem
We stayed for 5 nights and had a fabulous time. Room was great, nice size and lots of little thoughtful extras such as slippers, gowns and biscuits etc. Charlie and Julie-Ann were lovely, excellent hosts, and the breakfasts were honestly the best we have had! Thank you both!
Best few days away
The Briarfields is so welcoming and a beautiful place to stay.The rooms are beautifully decorated spotlessly Clean and the Breakfast must be the best In Torquay.Charlie and Julie Ann are the most welcoming host's and nothing is to much trouble.
Lovely property just a short walk from the seafront. Very clean and comfortable. The hosts were nice and the breakfast was top notch. Would definitely recommend it.
Excellent place, host were very friendly. Hotel and room was spotless. Would stay again and recommend.
Very nice and clean place,welcoming host ,we will definitely return.
OUSTANDING in every respect!
Wow! What can I say?I have stayed in many seaside B&Bs and The Briarfields is the absolute best I have ever stayed in, by a clear mile!The Briarfields is fastidiously clean. The breakfast is incredible and the hosts, Charlie & Julie-Anne make you feel very welcome.Before I left The Briarfields this morning I made certain to book again for 2 nights in June, which is a testament to how much I enjoyed my stay.Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality, Charlie and Julie-Anne, and I look forward to seeing you again next month.Best wishesAaron
Would highly recommend briarsfield the rooms are lovely and thoroughly enjoyed breakfast especially the black pudding lovely friendly couple nothing is to much bother for them
The room was nice and the service was excellent. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We enjoyed beeing there.
I was amazed with their hospitality and everything was available of your need without asking. And the breakfast superb.
We had such an amazing stay at the Briarfields. Charlie and Julie-Anne couldn’t do enough for us. The rooms were lovely with super comfy beds and the breakfasts were YUMMY! You wouldn’t get a better breakfast elsewhere! They kindly offered us an upgrade knowing I’m quite heavily pregnant which was a lovely touch. We will definitely return! :) Thanks again!
Comfortable 5* B & B
Briarfields is a very comfortable 5* B & B just 15 minutes walk from Torquay’s sea front. Charlie and Julie-Anne were very welcoming and couldn’t do enough for their guests. My Executive Suite had a very useful separate sitting room, whilst the bedroom came with dressing gown and slippers. The breakfast menu offered a very wide choice, all cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. I will definitely stay here again when next in Torquay.
We were met at the front door by a lovely Smiling Julie-Anne, great start to our break!One of the first things we noticed was how clean the hotel was and very tastefully decorated throughout. It was also great to find the fridge in our very comfortable room actually worked properly, unlike lots of other hotels we've stayed in!!Our breakfasts, with lots of choice to choose from was cooked by chef Charlie and very tasty they were too!!They were very attentive and flexible, an outstanding experience was had and we highly recommend this hotel
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. If we are your way in future you can count on us staying with you.it is more thana B &Bit is so comfortable welcoming
Charlie and Julie Anne are perfect hosts, warm and friendly. The rooms were well equiped and spotlessly clean. Beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast had good choice and well cooked. We normally stay in the Premier Inn down the road when visitingfamily in Paignton. We won't now and will stay at Briarfields in future.
We arrived to a warm welcome. The room was bright, spotlessly clean,comfortable with many little extras like a fridge with bottled water, bath robes and slippers. Cold milk for tea or coffee with biscuits.The choice of breakfast was fabulous and the service was excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. Location isgreat. Approximately 15 minutes to sea front and town. Would definitely recommend.Thank you both for a lovely stay. X
Home from Home
Charlie and Julie the owners really go above and beyond to ensure that your every need is taken care of. They are proactive in the sense that they anticipate your needs before you even have to ask. As for the quality of the breakfast,thumbs up and definitely worth a return visit.
Great HostsComfortable RoomGreat BreakfastWould recommend staying with Charlie and Julie.
Perfect and Very Friendly
We had a great stay and enjoyed walking to the beach. The breakfast was great too.The room had everything we needed and the hosts were very firebrand helpful.
Arrived at Briafields to a warm welcome by Charlie who checked us in.The room was lovely, with tea and coffee making facilities and home made shortbread.The bathroom was clean and faultless, the towels were to die for, big and fluffy.Breakfast was brilliant, you had a hugh choice from the menu. All in all wonderful accommodation. Thank you Charlie and Julie Anne
Visiting from Portugal.
Excellent all round. No issues at all & would be happy to stay again.
Fabulous Hosts & 5 Star Breakfast to die for
We wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Torquay!! Great Location, Fabulous hosts and a 5 Star breakfast you will struggle to match anywhere else. We will return here yet again soon.
Would highly recommend
Really friendly welcome, excellent hosts, fantastic breakfasts, lots of nice personal touches such as homemade shortbread on check in, bottles of water in room, air con etc. would definitely stay again.
Lovely little hotel
I stayed here in April 2023 after a couple of bad experiences with other Torquay hotels. I have now have changed my mind and would be so happy happy to stay in this hotel again.The room was very spacious and really clean. Had loads of quirky bits and designs to look at around the hotel that really made me happy to stay. (A lot of effort made to keep guests happy)Lastly the staff where really friendly and the breakfast was cooked perfectly.Thank you
We had one night at Briarfields while visiting the Princess Theatre for a concert and we were so pleased with our choice . The place is spotless clean , very comfy rooms and the owners are helpful and friendly . Big thanks though for breakfast! Great to see choices which you don't normally see on a breakfast menu , I had the corned beef hash with a poached egg and it was fantastic , my husband had huevos rancheros a Spanish breakfast fish ...utterly delicious . Would highly recommend this place and we would love to come back.
Superb accommodation with car parking and a short level stroll to the harbour and marina through the grounds of Torre Abbey. Our room and en-suite were spotlessly clean with beautiful decor which had all been planned excellently. The hosts Charlie and Julie were the best, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Charlie a trained a chef cooked gorgeous breakfasts from a comprehensive list of options which included many vegetarian options!!!We had a lovely three night night stay, so wished it could have been longer
Excellent B and B
This was my 2nd time at Briarfields and without doubt it is the best Place I have ever stayed and that includes 4 and 5 star Hotels . The Rooms have every thing you could wish for . the Breakfast is outstanding anything you desire at breakfast time cooked freshly by Charlie who used to be a chef in hotels in Scotland .Fresh Fruit platters little pastriesjuices cereals. Julie Anne and Charlie are wonderful hosts . If I were looking to stay again in Torquay I would not look anyone where else. You will not regret staying here .Paul and Sue B
Very Welcoming Hotel
The Briarfield's is a very lovely warm welcoming place, wonderful hosts, spacious and beautifully clean rooms, AMAZING breakfasts( i don't think anyone could beat them), nothing was too much trouble for the hosts Charlie & Julie-Anne, really impressed with the way were looked after, cant wait to go back again.
Everything was perfect. Very clean. Breakfast menu was wide ranging and well cooked and presented. Bed was comfortable and we benefitted from the electric car charger. Strongly recommend.
We stayed at Briarfields for two nights.This hotel is absolutely spotlessly clean and the breakfast was the best we have ever had (and we have stayed at a lot of very nice hotels). We would highly recommend Briarfields to everyone.
We had a perfect 3 night stay and were very happy with our choice. Great location within a short walk of the marina and we got a taxi back after dinner. A perfect base for exploring this area of Devon by car. The rooms are immaculate with everything you could need and lovely little touches like biscuits and gorgeous toiletries, shower powerful and a good size, breakfast choices that we tried were all spot on and beautifully cooked. Julie-Anne and Charlie are perfect hosts and we will definitely stay again. Highly recommended, no need to try anywhere else.
friendly and cleanliness
All the rooms are well decorated and extremely clean. Try to book room No 4.The owners are very friendly and parking right at the front. we will definitely come back.
This was a wonderful 2 night break in March 2023.Charlie & Julie-Ann were really friendly and helpful even providing us with a top notch vegan breakfast. Lovely bright, contemporary room which was spotlessly clean. The location was only a few minutes walk from the Abbey and only 10 minutes from the seafront.We loved the adult only vibePerfect mini break
From the moment we arrived until we checked out. Absolutely amazing stay.Comfortable bed. Everything we needed was there and breakfast was fantastic too.Charlie and Julie-Anne were fabulous hosts.
2 night stay
We had a lovely 2 night stay.Usually I don’t sleep that well while I’m away but bed was so comfortable I slept really well.Everything was perfect, couldn’t fault a thing.The extra touches like fresh milk made a big difference and the dressing gowns were a lovely touch.Everything was spotless.Breakfast was 5 star, tasty, hot, fresh and plenty of it, the sweet treats were a lovely touch.Will stay again when next in Torquay, highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely stay x
Wonderful stay. The room was lovely with great little touches everywhere. (And loved the shower!!) Charlie and Julie-Ann are really lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Lots of little unique great things make the place really stand out. Breakfast is amazing and cannot be beaten. Book here and you won't regret it! Me and the friend I stayed with were super impressed!!
Fantastic place to stay
The host/hostess and B&B itself were equally as impressive as each other. We were greeted very friendly as soon as we arrived and was instantly made to feel comfortable.The breakfast was fantastic quality, there is also a really good selection on offer. The room exceeded expectations, was incredibly clean and really did feel like a home away from home. We have already agreed if we are staying in and around that area we will definitely return, really was a lovely little place to stay.
Amazing stay! Defo recommend
Charlie and Julie-Anne are very welcoming, they went above and beyond to make our stay special. They were informative of what is around local to do, places to eat, see and go to.The bedroom and facilities were very clean and tidy, breakfast was amazing.Parking on site and easy to find.We would definitely recommend people to stay here and will be returning ourselves.Thank you for a brilliant nights stay.
We had a wonderful stay at youre B&b, nothing was too much trouble, our room was very comfortable, to to have a welcoming clean fresh room, comfy bed, tea making facilities and a nice little bottle of fresh milk plus some water, the shower was great and the towels were fluffy, very nice toiletries, and the breakfast was 10out of 10, very Prompt service and Charlie and julie were very welcoming and friendly, would recommend this hotel any day.
Superb place to stay.
When we arrived we were greeted by Charlie, who both made us feel very welcome and showed us where our room and the breakfast room was. Charlie was happy to assist us with his local knowledge of the area as required.Breakfast.Breakfast is pre-ordered, the day before. This system works very well as the breakfast is fresh cooked and superb, plus the tea/coffee is fresh and additional drinks or toast are offered if required. Fresh fruit juice, cereals and fruit were also available, but after the cooked breakfast we both declined these.Our room.This was larger than many we have stayed in, spotlessly clean well presented and included a fridge with Fresh milk for tea or coffee in the room. The en-suite bathroom was also larger than average and included a good size shower with plenty of hot water at a good pressure. Supplies were checked and restocked daily as required. In the room was a smart TV so a wide selection of information or entertainment was available if you want it. The Free WiFi works very well, I didn't actually check the speed available but when streaming a movie on the TV and using other devices at the same time there was no buffering.The car parking is a bit tight, but well organised. I would recommend reversing in as reversing out onto quite a busy road might be easy at peak traffic times.The bottom line, would we stay here again?Definitely.
Lovely house, lovely room, lovely hosts, lovely roomLovely stay.Thank you
Perfect place to stay.
Last minute New Years break away and we couldn’t have chosen better. Ideal location, clean, comfortable, delicious breakfast, fantastic friendly hosts, helpful, informative…… what more do you need…..nothing…Simply perfect.
Excellent Accommodation & Service
From beginning to end, my stay here at Briarfields was exemplary. The warm greeting at check-in, the most comfortable of rooms, terrific bed & shower, delicious breakfast and friendly and quick service provided throughout made my business trip in Devon a true delight.
Very well thought out provision of facilities.Everything I needed was there and in the right place. Excellent shower. Good reading lights over the bed, and even 2 TV's in the room (Room 4) one in the bedroom and another in the sitting area. Plenty of drawers and hanging space - even enough hangars (which is rare).Hosts very considerate and helpful.Happy to recommend this lovely B & B.
Nice Place to be.
These Pictures show exactly the hotel which is a small warm and cosy Bed and breakfast Hotel. The couple that runs this hotel is very nice and great hosts, The menue for the breakfast is excellent and all dishes are freshly prepared. I had the scotish breakfast with black pudding which was very tasty and it was more then I would finish. The room I had is comportable and had Coffee Tea and some cookies and you were given freskh milk on request for the night drink. All in all highly recommanded.
Our 4 night stay Briarfields
The owners were very welcoming and went out of their way to be always helpful and attentive.The great breakfasts were served in a delightful dining room and the bedroom was very comfortable helping us to relax. The shower facility was also excellent with luxury bathroom accessories.Overall our stay was brilliant.
What a lovely hotel. It is clean, fresh, bright and vibrant. The hosts are excellent, very helpful.
We stayed over for one night to see a concert. Lovely Hotel, quiet even though we had a room at the front, well equipped and modern. Great Nightsleep - topped of with a proper home made breakfast. Will stay again no problem.
Lovely family run B&B
Lovely family run B&B, quiet night, comfortable beds, lovely breakfast
We would like to thankyou for a wonderful 2night stay.Our accommodation was first class, on our arrival to our departure we couldn’t have asked for a more pleasurable stay. We feel we have discovered a little gem and have every intention to stay with you again in the not to distance future.
Like visiting family
We were greeted by Charlie, who asked us how our journey was and helped us with our bags like coming home to family. Our room was ready and it was beautiful, so cleandecor beautiful and nice touches like homemade shortbread and milk in thr fridge. Throughout our stay Charlie and Julie-Ann were helpful and informative about where to visit and eat. Breakfast was outstanding, my partner had the cornebeef hash and egg on the second day he said he had never had such lovely flavourful cornbeef hash in his life. We would highly recommend staying at Briarfield and we will be staying again.Thankyou so much Charlie and Julie-Ann.
Nice, clean comfortable room.Breakfasts were excellent, friendly people.Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Excellent friendly service
Lovely clean and inviting place to stay. We put extra money towards a 'Buyagift' voucher given for our anniversary. We are so glad we did. Charlie and Julie-ann certainly achieved there mission. The daily breakfast was lovely and got you fueled up for day. This was an excellent location to explore South Devon too.We would and will be recommending to friends and family.Many thanks
I cannot fault this establishment, immaculately clean, comfortable and welcoming.Breakfast was delicious and great portions, even had Earl Grey.I would highly recommend and our hosts were delightful and very professional.Free parking.
Breakfast excellent rooms very comfortable and the hosts were brilliant couldn't do enough for us would highly recommend
Excellent room and service
The Briarfields is spotless.Julie-Anne was very welcoming from the first phone call and she and Charlie run the place to a very high standard.Our room (the Executive Suite) was delightful - the separate sitting-room area and the superkingsize bed were what made me book it.Breakfast was gorgeous - and they will cater even for fussy eaters!My only (tiny) criticism is that I wish the breakfast slot was longer (it's 8 - 9.15).On our first morning there, we had had a busy few days and a late night and really needed to rest and have a lovely long lie-in but we couldn't really. Otherwise everything was ace.
An excellent break.
It has been some years since we last visited Torquay and we booked at Briarfields after looking on trip advisor . We had a lovely stay with Charlie and Julie-anne , enjoying first class breakfasts , nice comfortable room and charming hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we felt as though we were staying with friends.
What a wonderful, clean and welcoming place Briarfields is. We stayed a couple of days and nothing was too much trouble.Would definately stay again.
Excellent from the moment we arrived lovely warm and friendly welcome . Can’t fault Charlie and Julie-Anne. Spotlessly cleanthroughout and the breakfasts were first class. We have stayed in a lot of b & bs and this was by far the best. Thank you for a fantastic few days in lovely Torquay.
We had a very enjoyable stay in a junior suite at Briarfields. Our roomwith en-suite was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space and light. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and very well cooked. We normally stay in a hotel but this B & B had everything we wanted and we will definitely stay there again. Thenkyou to our hosts Charlie and Julie-Anne who were also excellent.
Outstanding five star as always
Julie and Charlie always go the extra mile for all there guests highly recommend rooms are very goodbest b & b we have stopped in Torquay we will be returning for the fith time
My partner and I visited this amazing B&B for a weekend getaway to Torquay, and I couldn’t recommend it enough! The hosts were incredibly kind and accommodating to our late arrival and my diabetic dietary requirements. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic, we were looking forward to it the following morning! The room was very sweet, clean, and had everything you need. Would absolutely come back again and will be recommending this to all my friends and family!!
This was our first time of staying at the Briarfields, and it must be said that our 2 night stay exceeded our expectations.Julie-Anne and Charlie are great hosts, friendly and welcoming. The 5 star rating is thoroughly deserved, in both level of accommodation and service, and breakfast cannot be missed, especially the small pastries to finish with.We have no hesitation in recommending the Briarfields, and we will be back on our next visit to Torquay.
My wife and I have stayed here before. It was brilliant before and it is the same on this, our second visit. We stayed for 3 nights. Accomodation is great.Breakfast is perfect. Julie Ann and Charlie are the perfect hosts. It's a pleasure to stay here. Highly recommended!
Hosts very friendly & helpful , hotel & rooms very clean & tidy . Breakfast was very good & a good selection to choose from.
We stayed for one night while in Torquayhad a very warm welcome and given a flask of fresh milk , and a menu for breakfast and time slot, and were given directions into town and harbour which was a lovely 10 min walk. Our room was lovely which wasimmaculate andattention to detail was excellent coffee/tea etc. breakfast was amazing thank you both a lovely stay will certainly book again if in Torquay and recommend to others 😁😁
We had a fantastic stay at Briarfields B&B. Could not fault a single thing. The room was lovely and spacious, excellent bed - and aircon! Bathroom was spotless and the room had every amenity you could want, the owners really have thought of every tiny detail. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts could not have been more helpful and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Would absolutely stay here again and would happily recommend to anyone considering staying here, you won't regret it!
Best B and B
We stayedfor 1 night the room and bathroom was spotless and very well a quipped great shower couldn't fault itand the breakfast was one of the best we've had quality ingredients will definitely be back
Our Stay At Briarfields
Very friendly family-run establishment.Nothing was too much trouble.Superb breakfasts and plenty to choose from.Quiet accommodation.Very clean.Located only a short walk from the harbour and train station.We liked the view of trains going past our bedroom window.
Great stay that met all our expectations
Excellent room, breakfast and service from the delightful owners. Having an electric car charger made the choice perfect for us as we had to spend zero time "filling up" the car. Attention to detail was outstanding e.g. we had a bottle of champagne in the fridge and two flutes "magically" appeared in the room.
a very nice and friendly place to stay rooms where very clean and tidy.very friendly and welcoming and very good breakfast.i would recommend this place and would stay there again fantastic service.
Excellent!We had a wonderful stay.
Highly recommend this as the perfect place to stay.We were made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we stepped through the front door until we left.The room was extremely comfortable with everything you need for a perfect stay.We had an air conditioned room which was lovely.Fresh cookies and fresh milk was a lovely touch.Comfy beds, great shower, soft towels and luxury toiletries.Breakfast was super amazing and every morning we were given a special treat.I can highly recommend the fruit salad.Location wise, we didn't use the car once during out stay.A short 20 mins stroll to the beach through the abbey grounds and you are in town and access to the boat trips.Thank you for a wonderful stay.We will definitely be back and recommending to friends and family.
Lovely relaxing stay
We turned up slightly later than our scheduled arrival time but were still welcomed warmly by Julie-Anne. The room was very clean and of a nice size.There is a nice variety of breakfasts and plenty of it.We would definitely stay here again when we return to Torquay.Thank you Charlie and Julie-Anne for making our stay nice and relaxing.
We enjoyed our stay at the Briarfields the hotel was spotlessly clean and the breakfast by Charlie was delicious. The couple were very friendly and helpful.Would definitely like another stay there.
Charlie and Julie Ann were perfect hosts. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was unbeatable. Close to sea front and private parking.What more can you ask for.
Superb place to stay
Great breakfasts and well organised timings, Charlie and Julie-Anne were excellent hosts and have put a lot of time, effort and money into making this a gold standard stay. The EV charger was a bonus. Executive suite was superb. With plenty of storage, air con and an extremely comfortable bed. Plenty of parking and decent pubs and restaurants nearby. (Thoroughly recommend the Drum Inn despite its challenging access and "pay for parking" the food was worth it.)
Perfect for getaway holiday
Charlie and Julie were very friendly, very polite and helpful. Cleaned and big room. We'll definitely come back again.
We can highly recommend The Briarfields. The room, the fittings and the breakfast were excellent.
Lovley rooms with a great breakfast and Charlie and Julie Ann were great hosts znd very welcoming would definitely stay again
Really enjoyed our stay, room was lovely, we had everything we needed. Immaculately clean, comfy bed and breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Charlie and Julie for your hospitality x
The best place we have stayed.
As two teachers, it is really essential to re-charge over the summer and make happy memories. We were able to do both, the only bad thing is we didn't book for longer.Everything was superb, the room itself had everything you need and was spotless! The food was the best we have had anywhere we have stayed. Including variety for all needs and service which was simply impeccable.The simply superb hosts were on hand if needed and made us feel welcomed and yet free too. We knew we could ask for anything but equally felt we had the space to just enjoy ourselves. With private parking and key access it makes this place a real must for those looking for a 5 star experience.Absolutely utterly amazing!
Fantastic welcome from you both. Lovelyfriendly stay. Excellent food and service.Nothing too much trouble.
Lovely comfortable spotlessly clean room,including a fridge fresh milk and biscuits. Hosts attention to detail top notch,it was our ruby wedding and there was a card left for us in the room upon arrival. Theres the added bonus of an air-conditioning in the room. Breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit was gorgeous and a great choice of cooked breakfasts (they're omelette are amazing) would recommend yo anyone.
Very very good
Thank you for such a lovely stay.We were made to feel most welcome. Excellent accommodation - everything put in place for our comfort.Definitely will return in 2023.
Very clean and comfortable room
Excellent place to stay. The room for very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were delicious and the hosts Charlie and Julie-Ann were very friendly and helpful. Definitely would recommend this B&B
We were extremely pleased with our room and especially with Charles and Julie.They were wonderful hosts, cooks, and provided anything we needed.They also offered great suggestions about where or what one might want to see or do.They were very accurate in meeting what we were looking for.We recommend this place to anyone. It’s definitely a 5 star accommodation.
Great stay lovely room and facilities. 2 hosts very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
We had a lovely stay, Julie-Anneand Charlie were very welcoming. The room was immaculate and we loved the attention to detail like the biscuits,water, lotions and shower creams etc were all lovely. Spotlessly clean and tidy room, reception area and breakfast room. The breakfast options were impressive and tasted amazing. Again attention to detail with complimentary pastry’s after, nice touch.Ample parking with plenty of space for Charlie’s motorbike !10/10 stay would definitely stay againThank you 😊

We had a great stay, with an amazing breakfast (and a good range of options too). Charlie & Julie-Anne were very friendly and helpful hosts.

Could not fault it. Briarfields is without doubt the best accommodation we have ever stayed at.Would definitely stay again
Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Lovely cushions and throws!Charlie and Julie-Ann are excellent hosts and I can only confirm previous comments about the breakfast, delicious.The Briarfields will be my first choice when I come back to Torquay, just hope they have room with all the brilliant reviews they get.
Spot on .
Absolutely brilliant,Charlie and Julie-ann great sense of humour, and just treated us like we’ve known them for years the first time we met. Our room was spot on as was the breakfast .If going to Torquay again next yearBriarfields will definitely be our first choice to stay at.
Had a 2 night stay at the Brairsfield, everything was lovely, the hosts were very attentive,the rooms were spotless, and breakfast was both plentiful and delicious, would definitely stay here again
Welcome and accommodation Perfect
From the moment of arrival at The Briarfields we knew we had selected an exceptional property for our four night stay.Our host greatest us and immediately offered to assist us with our heavy suitcases and made us feel incredibly welcome.The accommodation was five star plus in every aspect. Then came breakfast, what a treat!!We have been travelling through the UK for two months and without doubt our hosts, Julie-Ann and Charlie, made us feel we had the comforts of arriving home.
My Daughter arranged this stay as a birthday present. Charlie & Julie-Anne were warm and welcoming. The B&B is tastefully, thoughtfully decorated with wonderful attention to detail. Exceptionally clean with good quality beds & bedding and lovely fluffy towels. Bathrooms are modern and well appointed. Breakfast is great! excellent quality ingredients cooked to perfection by Charlie. Bothe Julie-Anne & Charlie are excellent, warm, friendly hosts, nothing is too much trouble! Even distracting me so that Julie-Anne & may daughter could arrange an ice bucket & the Bollinger in my room with brownies & a candle in for me on arrival in my room! Thank You!I would absolutely recommenda stay at the Brairfields and look forward to going back again in the future.
A perfect base
Our recent stay was faultless. The room was immaculate, very homely and had everything we could need (very grateful for the fan on such a hot week!). Breakfast was delicious and Charlie and Julie-Anne were always so attentive. Their hospitality was greatly appreciated - we had a fabulous stay!
Staying at Briarfields was an excellent choice for us, normally it’s just somewhere to lay your head, but the standard of the accommodation and excellent choice of breakfast, presented to a very high standard, was refreshing.The location of the B&B was within walking distance of the town, which has ample entertainment and restaurants.There would only be one place we would stay if we returned, if we are able to get in.Thank you Charlie and Julia
Our Third stay in two years, will definitely be back
Charlie and Julie-Anne make every stay a joy. Rooms are wonderful, Breakfasts the best we have had anywhereNothing too much troubleVeey Highly Recommended
Simply the best
This was my second visit to the Briarfields and once again rooms and service was exceptional. Breakfasts are delicious, spotless rooms and amazing hosts. Close to the beach and restaurants so I couldn’t ask for more.
Charlie and Julie were most welcoming nothing was to much trouble. The standard of the rooms was excellent good facilities and spotlessly clean. Great breakfast with plenty of choice in the nicest possible way almost too much to eat. We would have no hesitation in staying again. In fact why look anywhere else.
I travel for work, quite often and I have to say my stay at the Briarfields was great, very comfortable rooms, great quality, spotlessly clean, breakfast sourdough and poached eggs was great quality and very tasty.I will be staying again and highly recommend this very friendly and comfortable accommodation.See you both soon.
We recently enjoyed a 2 night break at the briarfields, the room, in fact the whole place was spotlessly clean, breakfast was wonderful, friendly and helpful hosts, great location, what more could you want!!! Will be staying there again!!
Such a spacious room
We stayed for 3 nights at the briarfields during the queens platinum jubilee. We were welcomed by Charlie who showed us to the executive suite with a bottle of Prosecco as we were just married. Wow….the room was fantastic and very spacious. There was a big menu for breakfast and it lived up to expectations!!Charlie and Julie-Anne were great hosts!!
A brilliant find
A fantastic B&B with lovely hosts. Room was extremely comfortable with everything you need. The homemade shortbread was a lovely touch and very yummy. You have a great selection for breakfast with some unusual items... My partner tried most and I stuck to the excellent vegetarian cooked breakfast. Made to feel very welcome and will be booking again.
Birthday treat in Torquay
Everything was lovely and the service extremely friendly and attentive.The room was spotless and quiet, with small little touches that really make the difference. I work in hotels and I can genuinely say you can really feel the passion and love that Julie-Ann and Charlie put into this. Thank you for a lovely stay, we will definitely be back.
Arrived early with a very warm welcome from Julie Ann and room ready. Stayed in Suite 7 which was superb, very comfortable and spacious. Everything you needed was provided. Breakfast was excellent,varied menu to order pre order catering for everyone's needs. Excellent location, easy 10 minutes stroll to the beach front. Will definitely revisit and would highly recommend. This was a surprise weekend away leading up to my partner Howard's 65th Birthday next month. Thank you
The perfect base to explore torbay
A gorgeous,clean well equipped room with the most delightful hosts. Amazing breakfasts and spotlessly clean through out. Only 10min walk from the sea front and Torquay. Charlie and Julie couldn't have been any more helpful. Will be visiting again
Great hosts, immaculate accommodation, fantastic breakfasts, walking distance to the front.
Had a really lovely 1 night stay at Briarfields - spotless accommodation, very well equipped, with superb breakfast and delightful hosts. Charlie and Julie-Ann were both very friendly and helpful, Charlie even gave us a lift into town when we couldn’t get a taxi! Would highly recommend and will hopefully stay again in the future.
Exceptional, lovely spacious room, delicious breakfasts and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend staying.
Briarfields 5 star hotel
Just returned home today after spending a great time at your beautiful hotel , dont know where to start ,,food fantastic , nothing too much trouble, room fabulous , bed comfiest ever, room spotless , hosts si friendly , arrived as strangers , left as friends , 5 star for a reason , we had the exec suite & hopefully shall return 🙂🙂
Excellent in every way
Friendly welcome, nice room, good biscuits and toiletries, excellent breakfast and precise service.
Our accommodation was contemporary, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Lots of hanging and drawer space for our needs with in-room fridge stocked with real milk (so much nicer than minute UHT cartons) and bottled water. Smart TV, desk & stool, two tub chairs and comfy bed complete the furnishings for the junior suite. The bathroom- also spotless - has an amazing shower, toiletries supplied and beautiful fluffy towels. Then there’s the breakfast, great choice,beautifully cooked and presented. There are many B&Bs in Torquay to choose from but because Charlie & Julie-Anne go the extra mile they make The Briarfields EXCELLENT! And there’s on site parking!
A gem in Torquay
Our stay was excellent. I can only reiterate our 'Booking.com' review:"Lovely hosts made us feel very welcome. Charlie and Julie-Anne were attentive but not fussy and even helped in our quest to fined a venue for an upcoming event. Our room was comfortable, nicely furnished and well-equipped without being ostentatious. Everything worked. The breakfast turned out to be a highlight. On time, great selection, beautifully cooked and well-presented. One of the best - and we've tried many."
A great stay
Warm welcome, lovely room, terrific breakfast… a really great stay! Thank you
Another 5 Star WOW
Stay here a few times now, never ceased to be impressed with the quality of the rooms and Charlie's AMAZING breakfasts. Great base for travelling around the locality and of course sampling Torquay, added bonus it has level car parking.
Everything you could want in a B&B, comfy bed, fluffy towels, clean room, tasty well cooked breakfast and great hosts. If staying in Torquay we wouldn’t stay anywhere else

Lovely stay and will definitely stay again when in the area - lovely to meet you Charlie & Julie-Anne

Absolutely delightful B&B hotel. Very welcoming despite our late arrival. Spotlessly clean and inviting. Comfortable bed and window that opened (a must for us).

Excellent stay very helpful felt very comfortable, excellent breakfast,will go back again well worth staying thank you very much
We stayed at Briarfields from 15-17/10/21. From first arriving to going up to our room the whole place is spotless. We where greeted by Charlie who showed where breakfast would be served, and asked if we needed a hand with luggage. The room was immaculate and exactly as described. With tea and coffee and fresh milk in the fridge. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was well equipped for our stay. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic, and the Stornaway Black Pudding was delicious. Nothing seemed to be to much trouble for Charlie or Julie-Anne.Very easy to get out and about and nice and peaceful during the evening. We will definitely return in the future.
We stayed here in September 2021 for 3 nights and we could not fault any aspect of it.The room was lovely, spacious & very clean. Bathroom facilities were on point. Nothing missed out and shower unit simple to use. The light on the mirror was a good touch for both of us.The owners Charlie & Julie-Ann were so welcoming, very friendly and knowledgeable of the local sites and potential eateries.The breakfast was amazing, with several choices that I can confirm were cooked to perfection.Would definitely recommend this B&B, we loved our stay here & would definitely stay here again.
Immaculately clean in room and all areas, excellent hosts, great breakfast, I am very picky but could not find fault. Thank you Julie and Charlie a job well done thanks.
Wonderful place, spotless, the hosts we lovely, very helpful. Will defiantly be going back.
5 star name 5 star service
Rooms was spotless , the hosts was always on hand and helpful,the breakfast was delicious and menu was plenty to pick from ,the attention to detail in rooms and breafast area was impressive . Would highly recommend to travellers to visit so near the sea front .
Very welcoming and hosts are delightful. Room nice and big and very comfy bed, lovely bathroom with great shower and toiletries, spotlessly clean everywhere. Charlie and Julie can’t do enough for you. All our dietary requirements were met and the breakfasts we had (3), were all delicious. Plenty of parking. A good time was certainly had by us both!!!
Excellent choice for breakfast, no need for lunch! Lovely room, clean and tidy throughout.Short walk through Tore Abbey Gardens toSeafront.
This is our second visit this year to the Briarfields as we enjoyed so much the first time. Charlie and Julie Ann are outstanding hosts and will cater to your every need, nothing is too much trouble for them.The breakfast quality is fantastic and all locally sourced produce.The rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable and modern, with everything you require, you also get fresh milk and water put into your fridge every day, which is a nice little touch. Thank you Charlie and Julie Ann for making our stay like a home from home.Kind Regards Lorraine and Brian
From the moment we arrived at Briarfields we got a warm welcome. The room was excellent and very spacious. The breakfast was delicious and fresh. Nothing was to much from our hosts Charie and Julie-Anne. We highly recommend this guest house and will return. Thank you!!!
Just had a two night stay at the Briarfields in their executive suite and what a lovely room it was very clean and super comfortable bed with good bedding. Breakfast very tasty especially liked the corn beef hash cake. Nice touches after the breakfast on day one a fresh Danish pastry yummy and just as yummy on day two a strawberry, raspberry and banana smoothie. Last but not least a lovely couple thank you.
Very good,room very comfortable and clean.breakfast choice good.hosts very helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Briarfields, we were made to feel very welcome and everywhere was absolutely spotless. The room was very comfortable and it was great to have the extra touches like a fridge, air conditioning and milk in the fridge. There was plenty of choice for breakfast which was cooked really well. Thank you for a great stay, we are looking forward to coming back soon.
Very nice 2 night stay. Lovely room,comfy bed,choice ofbreakfast and lovely hosts would highly recommend
Very warm welcome. Clear explanation of room location and breakfast plans. Excellent breakfast in both days from a varied menu. Liked having ‘our’ table and sun agreed time. Lovely walk to the harbour and town. All in all an excellent stay and real value for money.
Like a Boutique Hotel
Firstly I would like to thank Charlie and Julie for welcoming us when we arrived. We were shown to our room, which was bigger than we expected. For a bed and breakfast I would compare the rooms to a boutique hotel. Everything was in the room that you could want. The rooms were very clean to a high standard. I loved the wee bottle of fresh milk that was in our fridge. Breakfast was absolutely amazing and we tried something different every day as there was a great choice. Location was great as only a 10 minute walk to the beach. We would definitely go back to Torquay and stay at the Briarfields. Highly recommend Briarfields. You won't be dissapointed. Thank you again Charlie and Julie for making our first stay in Torquay a memorable one. Looking forward to visiting again.
Charlie and Julie were excellent hosts. Our room was bright, very clean, and offered a lot of attention to detail. Tea, coffee, biscuits and fresh milk daily was a nice touch, along with bottled water. The ensuite was a good size and very modern.Breakfast was the best choice that we've had on our travels and was cooked perfectly.We would have no hesitation in returning to Briarfields.
The Briarfields a little jem.
From the moment we arrived both Charlie and Julie made us feel very welcome. The room was spacious and well equipped for our stay. The breakfast did not disappoint with plenty of variety to suit all tastes. I can certainly recommend the Scottish breakfast. We can highly recommend this hotel and will certainly be going back.
What a lovely couple, so friendly and accommodating, the room was lovely spotlessly clean, with air con and a fridge, fresh milk daily and water and lovely large soft fluffy towels and bath robes.Large choice for breakfast which was excellent. Thank you Charlie and Julie-Anne will certainly recommend you and stay with you if we are down in Torquay again.Many thanks Doreen & Ken Redman
Great all rounder!
Had a lovely stay. Owners were attentive and very friendly. Comfortable room, mattress wasn’t to our comfort but was ok (we are used to a memory foam). Breakfast was tasty with a good choice. Brilliantly located and good value for money. We would definitely return.
Wow... excellent stay
Have been to Torquay many times, stayed in many hotels. Briarfields is one of the best, cleanest, and well run places we have stayed. On arrival, greeted by the hosts, lovely and clean, room was lovely bright and clean, at first, was a little worried as on main road, but with secondary glazing no noise. Also surprised even had aircon in room, which made stay, even more comfortable. Breakfast, was spot on, ample portions, and lovely clean breakfast room. So lovely and clean and friendly. Great vue, very professional but lovely and welcoming hosts.. just so clean, would book again definitely.. Thank you for a lovely stay. Fully recommend..
One of the best bits of Torquay!
I’m not one for reviews but felt compelled to write one after the incredible stay we had at Briarfields! The moment we pulled up Charlie was there with a big welcome and took our cases up to our room for us. He joked with my 80 year old mum and made her birthday more memorable. Charlie and Julie were so kind to give mum a birthday card too. The hotel itself was so clean, quiet and the service was exemplary plus the room was a lovely size for us both. There was tea and coffee facilities in the room, a mini fridge and air conditioning too! The breakfast…..omg was lush! Fabulous choices and beautifully presented. We didn’t want to leave! Please don’t think twice, stay here you won’t get a better intimate service anywhere else!
Very friendly welcome, lovely clean room and comfy bed.Breakfast was great, so much choice and tasted amazing.Thank you so much for a lovely stay.
It was my wife's 70th birthday and our daughter treated us lovely couple spotless food excellent and very welcoming and helpful will be going back thanks Richard and marlene denston
Firstly we had a great welcome Julie-Ann and Charlie on arrival . Helpful and welcoming from the start . Room was lovely and comfortable with a modern feel without a spec of dust to find . Excellent breakfast which was dead on time that we ordered for on both days . Would highly recommend and Julie-Ann and Charlie can be really proud of the Briarfields and the hard work they put in .
Brilliant & Bubbly !
We stayed 2 nights with Charlie & Julie - Anne in early SeptemberThey were a wonderful coupleCharlie greeted us and helped with luggageOur room was immaculate and palatial!Breakfast was a feast beginning with fresh fruit,then a choice of several mains, followed by toast,croissant and Danish pastries.Charlie being a trained chef meant that our stomachs were in good hands!Parking was easy in front of the house and it was easy to get around TorquayAll in all a very pleasant stay I thoroughly recommend this B & B
We really enjoyed staying at The Briarfields. The Toom was lovely, comfortable and immaculate. The Breakfasts were fantastic. We would love to stay in a superior room next time
Booked in a hurry, last room left. Did not check any other accommodation as aware rooms tight.How lucky were we. Liked Briarfields instantly. Managed to book extra night. Everythng excellent, rooms, amenities, hosts, food, location.
Very enjoyable stay
We booked this stay last minute to celebrate our Golden Anniversary. The hosts were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and tidy. The en-suite immaculate.Breakfast was good. Situated with just a short walk to the beach.
Lovely hosts, made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be back in the near future. We wish we could of stayed longer. Breakfast lovely. Made my birthday very special. Thankyou very much Kelly and dan
BFF - Brilliant Fantastic Find
There are two things you want in a good bed and breakfast; that is a good bed for a good night's sleep and a really tasty breakfast to start your day... The Briarfields delivers both and much much more. The breakfast choices (from light and fruity to full on fry up!) are truly fantastic and delivered with a cheery smile in a beautiful breakfast room and they taste terrific, especially the sausages and the Stornoway black pudding. The rooms are beautifully designed and finished with thoughtful touches like the Harris tweed throws, the colourful animal inspired cushions and the high quality toiletries. The bed and pillows were super comfy.This really is much more than a B&B and you can tell that the owners Charlie and Julie-Anne really know how to deliver the very best hospitality to their guests.I'm excited for our next visit and will be recommending to anyone travelling to Torquay or surrounding area to stay there.
You state “ we make it our mission to give our guests the best service we can and are constantly evolving to ensure that your stay with us is spot on.” well you have surpassed your mission statement. Lovely room 4 (massive), plenty space to chill and relax and oh what a comfortable bed. In fact the biggest pull to get up was to have Charlie’s breakfast, fantastic, excellent choice and the quality’s spot on. You’ve dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s. Loved the home from home feel and for sure we will be back. David & Elaine x
Most wonderful stay with most wonderful hosts
Loved staying at Briarfields. Julie and Charlie made me feel right at home from the delicious breakfast to the homely room and comfy bed! Felt really special staying there And I Can’t wait to come back, going to make it an annual trip. Thank you again Julie and Charlie for everything
We had a two night stay and the room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The owners are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble, we even got given a lovely fruit smoothie with our breakfast and homemade pastries.In our room we also had a fridge which had fresh water, milk and a tray with coffee, tea and biscuits which were replaced every day for us and we also had a coffee machine too.The Briarfields is a lovely place to stay and the owners make you feel very welcome, we will definitely be making another booking in the not too distant future!Thank you both so much!
5 out of 5 on all counts !
Fabulous hosts where nothing was too much trouble ! The breakfast choice and quality was as good if not better than any 4 or 5 star hotel! Spotless accommodation, Excellent shower, comfortable bed and good sized room. Location was perfect with only 10 mins stroll down through Abbey Torre gardens to the promenade . No hesitation in recommendingthis as the perfect place to stay. We will certainly stay here on any future trip back to Torbay.
4 days stay
Excellent stay. Hosts were fantastic. Breakfast was to die for. Would definitely recommend snd will definitely return.
We absolutely loved it. Both hosts were very welcoming. Breakfast cooked to perfection. Room and bathroom specious and clean. Very convenient as well. Pier only 10 minutes walk. Nothing to dislike
We had a fantastic short break. Lovely spotless room and very well presented. Great choice at breakfast and really good quality produce. Great hosts. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Very enjoyable stay
We enjoyed four days in the Torquay area, staying at Briarfields, in June. The hotel was comfortable, very clean and our room was well equipped. The breakfasts were excellent. My wife described them as the best she had ever had! The hotel was well located, less than a mile from the seafront. I was concerned parking on site may prove a problem, but we always managed to park our car within the spaces provided. We would return. Thank you.
First stay in Torquay
The Briarfields is a lovely bed & Breakfast . It is spotlessly clean and welcoming.The room had good facilities and was comfortable and quiet.The breakfast choice was excellent and freshly cooked by Charlie. It not only tasted first class but the presentation was beautiful. Both Julie-Ann and Charlie were great hosts and continuously asked if we needed anything else.The location was great as it was a straight walk about a mile to the seafront but a long walk if you’re not very mobile you may want to get a bus or taxi.It was a short walk to Torre Abbey which was well preserved worth a look on your way into town. Torquay was lovely and so were the surrounding areas. Plenty of bars and restaurants with an array of ice cream and fudge shops . Great location for sight seeing as only a couple of miles from Paignton and Babacombe with Brixham being about 7 miles away. Definitely worth a visit would go back here again.
Our stay at the Briarfields was excellent. Beautiful clean rooms. Breakfast was excellent. Charlie and Julie-Ann were brilliant hosts. Would recommend this place.
Excellent stay and lovely hosts!
We stayed for 3 nights and were blown away by the quality and cleanliness of the property, the exceptional breakfasts, the location and how courteous and accommodating Julie-Anne and Charlie were. They are definitely a dream team and are both extremely friendly. When we got there, Charlie very kindly offered to take our luggage to the room (which my mother was extremely grateful for!) and also gave us a lift to the station after we checked out. Could not have asked for a better stay - we’ll definitely be back if we stay in Torquay again. Thank you both!!
Excellent,could not have been better
This is an exceptional hotel, we were looked after from arrival to departure, room, breakfast and everything else was excellent.Will definitely be staying there again.
this B&B is incredibly freshly clean and tidy the room was extremely comfortable breakfast was exactly as we ordered and perfectly fresh. The owners are very pleasant, friendly and helpful. the location is ideal with easy walking into the town and seaside and easy to drive out to other places.We stayed the night before in a 5* hotel in Bath and if that is a 5* then Briarfields deserves 6*
Wonderful hosts and lovely hotel
We have just arrived home and couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay . The hotel and host was wonderful would highly recommend .
Amazing 4 Night Stay
As I was the first to arrive, I was warmly welcomed by Charlie and Julie, who were so warm and welcoming. Charlie was so kind as to offer to take my suitcase and showed me the rooms. We had Room 6 and 7 at the top of the house which had a double bed and a nice sitting area. The room was spotlessly clean and decorated to taste, with plenty of storage, armchairs, a comfortable bed, tv, AC, a fridge, well stocked tea/coffee tray, hairdryer, towelling robes/slippers and daily water and milk replenishment.The breakfasts were the highlight of our mornings especially Charlie’s comic relief, we had a good amount of options to choose from, especially being a pescatarian I felt catered to.There was sufficient parking bays at the front of the house which made it easy for us as we did not have to worry about leaving the cars when out at night and having to pay extra for parking. The seafront is a stone away and a pleasant walk too.Charlie and Julie are a very hospitable, professional and friendly couple who deserve our 5 star rating.We really enjoyed our stay and would absolutely recommend.
3 night birthday staycation
We were warmly welcomed by Charlie and Julie, who are still adhering to COVID rules by wearing masks when greeting guests and when serving breakfast.We had Room 7 at the top of the house which had a double bed and a nice sitting area. The room was spotless with plenty of storage, armchairs to relax in, a comfortable bed, tv, air con, a fridge, well stocked tea/coffee tray, hairdryer and lovely towelling robes/slippers. We had plenty of hot water for our showers and the towels were thick.The breakfasts were excellent, with a good choice.We parked our car in a marked bay on the driveway at the front of the house. It took us 12 minutes to walk to the seafront. This is the first season for the owners but you wouldn’t know, they are a very friendly, professional couple who deserve our 5 star rating. They even left a birthday card in the room when they found out it was my partner’s birthday. We really enjoyed our stay at Briarfields.
The location was excellent the rooms wear very clean and tidy the breakfast was excellent and the couple who ran wear amazing thank you
We had a lovely stay at Briarfields which is in a great location 10 minutes walk from the seafront. The accommodation was outstanding and spotlessly clean. The choices and standard of breakfast was wonderful, all credit to Charlie. Julie-Ann and Charlie are wonderful hosts who made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They even left us a card and box of fudge in our room on our wedding anniversary which was very sweet of them. We will definitely be returning at a some time in the future and would highly recommend the hotel to anyone. Keep doing what you are doing with best wishes Adrian and Michelle
Briarfield b&b Torquay .
Decorated to a high standard, clean and covid secure , first class breakfast , nothing too much trouble ,Charlie and Julie Ann went out of there way to make sure we had a lovely holiday .
The accomodation was very clean,bright and comfortable.The breakfast was cooked just as we wanted.Our hosts were not impossing and everything was set up for a relaxing stay.We very much enjoyed the two nights we stayed
Fantastic B & B!
We have recently returned from what was supposed to be a 7 night stay turned into 8 nights.We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to stay on longer and we were lucky that our lovely hosts Julie-Ann and Charlie could accommodate us.There is nothing not to like and this was a little gem of a find.Everything was spotlessly clean and our hosts so welcoming and friendly even lending us their own coop bags to use at the beach!Wonderful choice for breakfast which comprised or quality ingredients and wonderfully presented.Really worth a 6 hour drive and we will certainly return!
Best B & B ever
We loved our first stay at Briarfields so much we came back a second time. Warm welcome from both Julie-Ann and Charlie.The rooms are immaculate.Breakfast was fab. We tried various items from the extensive menu and everything was delicious and well presented.Would thoroughly recommend Briarfields and we will definitely stay there again if back in Torquay.By far the best B&B we have ever stayed in.
Lovely stay, very relaxed
I can't decide if we classify as a married couple or mature couple (perhaps a reality check needed!). We couldn't think of a single thing which merited complaint or criticism in any way. It was a real pleasure to have stayed at the Briarfields. Thank you so much Julie Ann and Charlie. We have returned home the better for it.
Fantastic short stay. We were made extremely welcome as soon as we stepped into the hallway by Charlie.Suite very comfortable and clean.Wonderful breakfast and lots of it!Great location, we will be returning.Angela and Stuart
A beautiful 5 star Guest House. We stayed in Suite 2 which was just perfect. It has a separate lounge area where we could sit comfortably to watch England play in the Euros semi finals on TV. Lots of thoughtful touches such as a pod coffee machine and fresh milk. The breakfasts are truly outstanding and beautifully presented. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to Torquay.
Best B&B in Torquay
Charlie and Julie are the perfect hosts. Our suite was so clean and comfy. As was the whole guest house. They are very friendly and brilliant cooks! Breakfast was lovely and what a choice. I would highly recommendthis guest house and if we ever came back would stay there again. It was a shame outbreak was only a few days thank you again
We had lovely 3 night stay at the Briarfields.Executive suite was spotlessly clean with good facilities in it.There was a good selection at breakfast time and all very well cooked.Husband especially liked the black pudding and corned beef hash cakes are also excellent.It’s a good 15 mins walk to the harbour through torre gardens.A taxi cost us £5.50 to the harbour if your not up for the stroll.Will definitely revisit next time we are in Torquay.
Friendly and welcoming
We stayed in the executive suite which was clean and spacious.Bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows.Breakfasts were plentiful and tasty.Fresh fruitplatter and yoghurt was lovely.Parking adequate and not a problem, just mentioned that we would be using the car, so no car parked behind us ensuring easy assess toexit.Pleasant walk into town on the flat.Would stay again for a short break away.Thank you Charlie and Julie Ann, wishing you all the best in your new venture..kind regards,Julie and Alan Norton.
Really lovely room nice and clean. Lovely en suite. Brilliant breakfast nothing was to much trouble. The whole bed and breakfast as a whole was lovely. Highly recommendGood location about 20 minute walk in to the marina.

Staying with you
We enjoyed our stay very much,very clean and comfortable place to stay would definitely recommend
Our 2nd visit and really enjoyed / stayed in a double room this time which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.Breakfast was amazing both days and the hosts Charlie and Julie Anne are first class.Will definitely stay again ????
Charlie and Julia-Ann were wonderful hosts. They were extremely accommodating and friendly.A lovely choice of breakfast, all were cooked perfectly.The rooms were clean, comfortable, modern and spacious with air conditioning and luxury complimentary toiletries.There were bottles of water in the room each day with a wonderful selection of coffees, teas biscuits and chocolates.The staff here really couldn’t have done any more to make the guest house comfortable and us feel so welcome.We highly recommend this guest house and will definitely be back!
My wife and I have worked right through the lockdown period so it was so nice to get away from it all for a little holiday.We spent a lovely week staying at the Briarfields in Torquay, the hosts Charlie and Julie-Anne made us most welcome from thestart. Off road parking is available (a must in Torquay) and the room was beautifully presented.Being on the top floor our room was very warm and as there was a fault with the air conditioning Julie made sure we had a fan for our use while they had it looked at.The breakfast was not to be missed, a good choice all freshly cooked homemade and sourced locally. Well done Charlie now I've got to go looking for that black pudding.The front is an easy stroll 10/15 away and taxis are good value back.Charlie and Julie-Anne tell me they only took over a few months back, well not a bad start I say long may you continue in your endeavours we shall be sure to return soon.Many thanksRob&Teresa
We chose the Briarfields based on reviews and location and we were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted by Julie-Anne on arrival and she happily accommodated our request to book an extra night and upgraded us to a suite. The suite was immaculately clean and spacious with the added bonus of air conditioning. Breakfast was amazing, good choices and cooked to perfection by Charlie. We will definitely be back ??????????
Fantastic 2 night stay
What a fabulous place to stay! We were greeted by such welcoming hosts and Briarfields exceeded our expectation. The room was beautiful and tastefully furnished, really appreciated the mini fridge with fresh milk and bottled water. Extensive breakfast menu, cooked to perfection and well presented.
Lovely B+B and great hosts
Had an absolutely wonderful stay at The Briarfields. The room was clean, spacious and really comfortable and the hosts were so helpful and lovely! Our TV wasn't working on the first night and they gave us a new one within the day which was just amazing customer service! Highly recommended
A lovely B&B , great location , excellent room , superb breakfast especially the black pudding , thoroughly recommend a stay here
We have just checked out after a 3 night stay at this lovelyguest house . On arrival we were warmly greeted and directed to our room. We stayed in a double room which was clean, pleasantly decorated with a good size bathroom. All of the complimentary toiletries, tea, coffee etc were restocked daily. The breakfast included in the room price was extremely fresh and well prepared. Our hosts were very tentative and polite. We would highly recommend this accommodation.
Great place to stay
The hotel is walking distance from the harbour and town. The hosts Charlie and Julie-Anne were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had a beautiful bedroom which was spotlessly clean and a very comfy bed. The only downside was the signal kept dropping out on the tv but I don’t go away to spend time watching tv anyway.
We stayed for three nights (26th-29th May 2021) at The Brierfields, and it exceeded our expectations. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Julie Anne on our arrival and throughout our stay.We stayed in room 7, on the third floor, which included an ensuite shower.They were both presented to an extremely high standard and well equipped. The essentials for coffee and tea making with fresh milk was a bonus.Consumable extras were replenished daily.A bountiful breakfast, with plenty of variety was served in a very clean and Covid Safe dining room. The specials were a must, like Charlie’s Scottish Breakfast, which included all the English essentials plus a Scottish Black Pudding, which was wonderful.Thank you again, JulieAnne and Charlie, for this five star plus experience.Hope to be back again soon.
We are frequent visitors to Torquay but this is the first time we have stayed at The Briarfields.It won't be the last as the service was excellent and Charlie made us very welcome.The room was immaculately clean and breakfast was cooked to perfection. After a long lockdown, this was the breath of fresh air we needed in these stressful times.See you again soon.
Everything thing was fantastic, lovely room, Fantastic breakfast. Perfect Host's
We had an excellent stay. A warm welcome from lovely hosts we were made to feel at home. The rooms are beautiful with everything you need and the public areas are all perfect. The breakfast was delicious - spot on.Thank you both so much - we really enjoyed our stay :)
Our review of Briarfields
A short break after lockdown. We were met by Julie-Ann and shown our Room. We had room 7 and we were very impressed with it. The room was very modern, very clean and well equippted. Tea, coffee, coffee machine, and cold water and milk in the fridge. The shower room was also of a hight standard.Room serviced every day and consumables replenished.Breakfast needs a special mention, it's first class. My wife went throught the menu, her rating was excellent, well done Charlie. Thank you both for a great stay.
You are new to this you said.You wouldn't think so.Incredible job ????Will look forward to our next stay.
We were warmly welcomed and the accommodation was nice and clean. The best part of our stay was the breakfast. If I have the opportunity to come back to Torquay,I would stay here again.
Both myself and my wife tried to find a hotel in Torbay for a mix of work & leisure and thankfully found Briarfields Hotel. Beautifully presented, immaculately clean and hosted by a couple who clearly have a real passion for customer service & excellence!Trust me don’t book anywhere else the breakfast is worth the money alone.Thanks for your hospitality
We stayed at Briarfields during the lockdown in Spring 2021 (for essential valid travel) and despite the restrictions Julie-Anne and Charlie were exceptional five star hosts.Adhering to all the guidelines, the rooms are pristine and very comfortably furnished, with the extras and attention to detail which make a stay at this lovely B&B a real treat.Our new hosts only took over Briarfields a few days before we arrived but they gave us the warmest of welcomes and nothing was too much trouble.Chef Charlie was keen to show off his exciting new breakfast menu and quite rightly, the breakfasts are absolutely superb.We wholeheartedly recommend this as a first choice B&B in walking distance of Torquay promenade. Thank you to our wonderful hosts for a great stay.
Lovely weekend away
Booked this lovely place during lockdown so did not know what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised. Extremely professional owners, very Covid aware and organised for all its clientele. Fantastic food, good choice on the menu. Stayed in one of the suites. Full size bedroom and lounge. Lovely bathroom with all amenities provided. Would recommend Briarfields as it was spotless.:-)
