JRR Tolkien

A spacious ground-floor double room with an accessible en-suite, inspired by The Hobbit. The sitting area has two faux leather armchairs, one of which is a riser-recliner.


We’ve done our best to make the room as comfy as possible for folk with mobility issues, but we’ve not been able to widen the entrance doorway which is a “standard” 76cm at the narrowest point. There are two steps up to the guesthouse entrance; we have ramps for these. There are no steps between this room and the communal areas.

Check out our Getting Around page for info about mobility equipment hire and so on.

Virginia Woolf

Our Virginia Woolf room is a ground-floor “Room of One’s Own”. Decorated in soothing greens and mellow yellows, the room has a comfy reading nook under the window, a bureau for working on your own masterpiece, drawers and hanging rail, and a newly refurbished ensuite shower room.

Next door to the Tolkien accessible bedroom, this single room could be ideal for a carer travelling with someone who needs the accessible facilities next door.

Mary Shelley

The Mary Shelley room is a romantic, dramatic, gothic suite with red velvet covered armchairs and a side view of the seafront from the first floor bay window. A brand-new walk-in shower ensuite completes the luxurious suite.

The Frankenstein author stayed in Torbay for a Summer, writing a children’s book that was only recently discovered in the attic of an Italian villa.

Oscar Wilde

Inspired by art nouveau styles, with peacocks symbolising Wilde’s foppish style, and quotes from his work. This double room on the first floor has a hanging rail, drawers, comfy armchairs, and a remodelled ensuite with a shower.

Alice Walker

Our Alice Walker room takes the colour purple as its theme. It’s a twin bedroom with two comfy single beds, hanging rail and drawers, an ensuite shower room, and a cosy sitting area with purple velvet covered armchairs.

Price from £72-80 per night (includes breakfast for two).
