10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We stayed here with our toddler. The Guest House was very clean and really nicely decorated. The food was great, as vegetarians Pete and Trish really accomadated us. They did little things such as setting us a table with a cup and straw for our daughter, a pink blnaket on her bed and went to extra lengths to keep her milk fresh by actually buying us a fridge! Thanks it was great , close to the beach and town and pleanty of parking. I would recommend it to anyone and will be staying again."

A Lucky Find
"We found the recently refurbished Briarfields to be an excellent base for a last minute seaside break to Torquay. The light airy uncomplicated decor was calm and uncluttered and miles away from your traditional dark green and burgundy decor of most B&Bs.
Our Superior room was squeaky clean, the towels fluffy and the bed comfy. It did face the main road but was double glazed and had a ceiling fan.
There was wide choice at breakfast and although a bit early, 8.30-9.30 it did make us get up and out.
Everything we needed was there, it was just a shame they couldnât have sorted out the weather for us!!!!!"

Warm and friendly
"Had a lovely couple of nights stay here at this immaculate tastefully decorated hotel/guest house - The proprietors Trish and Pete very welcoming friendly and helpful - Only intended staying one night but due to problems with bike (Pete you will now know who we are!!!) decided to stay for two nights which was a blessing in disguise!
We would have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends a stay at Briarsfields"

Impressive - stylish accommodation with great hosts!!
"My fiance and I stayed in The Briarfields for two nights and must say we were very impressed from the moment we stepped inside. We had a very warm and friendly welcome from Trish who showed us to the newly refurbished suite we were staying in. The suite exceeded our expectations. It has been decorated to a high standard, very modern and stylish en-suite and has a larger than expected lounge area complete with leather settee and plenty of storage! Both mornings when we went down for breakfast we were greeted by Pete who was happy to cook us up whatever we fancied for breakfast. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Torquay that is really worthy of a 5 star rating stay in the Briarfields - when we go back to Torquay, it's the only place we will be staying!!"

"Following a recommendation from friends, we booked to stay at Briarfields for a Long weekend. On arrival we were greeted by the new owners Pete and Trish, who were pleasant and welcoming. The hotel has recently had a major refurbishment which shows throughout the property. The bedroom that we had booked was fantastic with a large ensuite, which like the rest of the property was immaculate. The room had everything we needed with tea making facilites, TV/DVD Player, Alarm clock, Ceiling fan (great for those hot nights) and small fridge. The Dining room again was just perfect and a fantastic breakfast was served by Pete,(we assumed Trish was the one who actaully cooked the breakfast). Nothing was to much trouble for either Pete or Trish, This is the best Guest House / Hotel that we have stayed in within the Torbay area and great Value for money...... We will be definitely going back to Briarfields"

Great, It says what it is, 5 STAR
"We stayed here for 1night as we were travelling around like we often do, and to fall upon this B& B was great, it was home from home, thats if you have 5 star at home, if you dont then I asure you, you will be more than happy with this place. It has just been taken over by a lovely couple who have got the right combination to make this place a top place to stay in Torquay.It has been completely renovated to a high standard.
We would recommend this to any one with a little bit of class & sophistcation, no good for the riff raff.
We would definately stay here again no hesitation. Regards Mr & Mrs Tony Smith"

Pete and Trish have made thsd a special place to stay, clean, modern and welcoming
"We were recommended Briarfields by Helen and partner at Carlton Court when there was a mix up withour booking there. Pete and Trish weren't officially open but took this booking at very short notice. Briarfields is spotlessly clean, modern and welcoming. My husband was particularly in love with the new carpet smell. Our room was spacious with a lovely ensuite shower room, lovely bedding, towels and special touches. Trish made the best dippy egg amd soldiers I have had since my mum cooked me one last!! Altogether a great stay."
