  • Relaxing after Bike Ride
    A friend and I arrived at 8.00pm on a Saturday evening having just completed a group 150 mile bike ride in a day from Gloucestershire. While waiting for our wives to arrive with the luggage, Julia and her husband could not have been more accommodating in storing our bikes for us and sitting us down with tea and a mountain of cake! Rooms were excellent, comfortable, relaxing and quiet and the choice of breakfast wonderful. Overall if staying in Torquay again, we would return to the Garway” Paul 23.6.15 Booking.com

  • GREAT THREE DAY STAY
    Just recovering from illness and was so well looked after. Julie was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent breakfast which was beautifully cooked. Fresh fruit particularly welcome and a varied menu on offer. Everything worked in the room which was comfortable and with clean decor. Parking no problem with off road spaces and plenty of room on surrounding roads. Thanks Julie. Will stay again!

  • THE BEST GUEST HOUSE WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN
    The owners Julia and Paul are without a doubt the most welcoming, friendly and generous people we have met in their line of business. I observed they look after all their guests and always go over and above so their guests are comfortable and well informed about the local area which definitely enhanced our stay no end. I left my mobile phone in my room and Julia reassured us she would send it to our home address and it arrived the next day, causing me no inconvenience. We have stayed at this guest house 4 times and look forward to the comfortable rooms, sumptuous beds but most of all the wonderful breakfasts. Pancakes and crispy bacon is a delight. Thank you Paul and Julia.

  • A WARM WELCOME TO DEVON
    We were directed from Torre station, which is a stone's throw from Garway Lodge. The welcome was friendly and informative. The rooms were beautifully furnished and well equipped. Julia gave us lots of handy tips for our evening sortie into town (sightseeing and dinner). The breakfast menu was comprehensive and the food beautifully cooked. I would heartily recommend a stay here.

  • ONE OF THE BEST B and Bs LOVED HOME MADE JAMS
    As soon as we entered the Garway lodge, we received a warm welcome from Julia, and Paul, and a much needed cup of tea, after a long walk ! The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The bed was so comfortable, that it was difficult to get up in the morning !! The breakfasts were excellent,and certainly started us off well for a good days walking. Really loved the home-made jams - would have liked to try them all, but ran out of time. Really impressed by the time and effort that Julia puts into everything, to make your stay just as you want it to be - couldn't have asked for more. The Torre train station is very convenient - only 5 minutes up the road - linking Torbay resorts to Exeter and Exmouth..Would highly recommend Garway lodge to anyone.

Dear X (or whoever it is) Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and for making me feel so welcome in your home. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to you and.

Thank Someone For Hospitality

thanks for welcoming me into your home

Staying with a host family can be such a great experience, it’s hard to know how to thank your hosts properly.

THE BEST MEMORIES of my recent trip to Ecuador come from the family in Quito that graciously opened their home to me.

After nearly two months of traveling, home-cooked meals and real beds with clean sheets were just what I needed. Plus, my host-family had lived in Quito for decades and were eager to share their city with me.

I had a deeper travel experience from watching how they lived, and I learned a lot about the city that you won’t find in guidebooks.

Staying with a host family can be such a great experience, it’s hard to know how to thank your hosts properly.

When you thank someone for letting you stay with them, make it more than a gesture. Staying in someone’s home while traveling can give you an intimate glimpse into how others live. Let them know how much it meant to you.

1. Earn Your Keep

Doing a few chores around the house or offering to do some of the cooking will always be appreciated.

Play to your strengths. If you’re a bit of a handyman, offer to fix their leaking faucet. If you’re tech-savvy, have a look at their aging computer.

Don’t make it too obvious, or your host will probably feel bad that their guest is doing housework. Be casual about it, don’t let them think of it as payment – and don’t break anything!

2. Quid Pro Quo

Even if they never do make it to your neck of the woods, they will probably enjoy exchanging an occasional email.

Return the favor by inviting your hosts to stay with you the next time they visit your part of the world. Make sure you leave them contact information that will still be good in a few years.

Then, if they do show up on your doorstep, do everything you can to make them feel as welcome as possible. Even if they never do make it to your neck of the woods, they will probably enjoy exchanging an occasional email.

If you enjoy playing the host, and want to make it into a regular thing, visit CouchSurfing. Sign up and start building your own network of international friends.

3. Share Your Memories

Most traveler’s carry a camera. Take a few group pictures with your hosts. When you develop those photos back home, make sure you send a few copies to your host family.

With most of us using digital cameras, the easiest (and cheapest) way to share photos is by e-mailing the files. However, mailing prints will probably be more appreciated.

Either print and mail them yourself, or upload the files to a website that will send the prints. I have used Winkflash, but there are many others.

4. Bring A Gift From Home

Gifts from your own hometown always go over well. Pack some small, nonbreakable gifts before leaving home. Find something that they are not likely to have where they live. On your last day with your host, give them something to remember you by.

Little flag pins or key-chains will work, but the best choice is something more personal. If you have a creative hobby, then give them a sample. Woodworkers, crafters, and other artists have many options.

5. Do Some Research

If you’re going to buy a gift locally, find out what items are considered appropriate in the culture you’re visiting. A certain color of flower may look great to you, but giving it out of the proper cultural context can be an insult to locals.

If you are going to buy a gift locally, find out what items are considered appropriate in the culture you’re visiting.

Some seemingly harmless gift items may be associated with funerals and death. Often guidebooks can give you advice on local taboos. Better yet, ask around the neighborhood market for ideas.

There might be other local customs regarding gifts. Make the effort to know these ahead of time. For example, if you know that in some cultures it’s polite to initially refuse a gift, you won’t be worried when your host turns down your gift the customary number of times.

Research helps here, but don’t worry so much about offending someone that you freeze up and become overly formal. As a foreign guest, you won’t be expected to know every little detail about local etiquette.

6. Treat Your Hosts

Take the family to a movie. Take them to a museum. Ask them which local restaurant is their favorite, and then make reservations.

Even though they may have constant access to the sights in their city, they probably don’t take advantage of them as often as they would like.

Something as simple as going to the bar where your host is a regular gives them a chance to show you off a little to their friends. Remember, you are just as exotic to the local as they are to you.

7. Don’t Overdo It

Expensive gifts and shameless gushing will only make your host uncomfortable. They are not expecting money or jewelry, and will turn them down.

Friendship, interesting conversation and the satisfaction of being a good host are what they really want, so keep smiling and always say thank you!

Thank you for your kindness and warm... - Grove House

thanks for welcoming me into your home

Being the subject of someone’s hospitality is a privilege. By allowing you into their home and life, a person is showing you a window into their world. This is not something that should be taken lightly.

The best way to show your appreciation for someone who has been welcoming, is to write them a note or message to say, “thank you for your hospitality”.

Due to the personal nature of the experience, the writer should be specific about what they’re thanking their host for. Additionally, the writer should convey sincerity.
