My partner and I have recently returned from a three-day weekend break to this Shearings hotel. We stayed in room 315 which was clean and warm but the view was disappointing and I would recommend spending the extra supplement on a room with a sea-view. As far as the dining arrangements were concerned we cannot comment on the quality of...

Last minute break with shearings and was not disappointed! Food very good, sometimes excellent. Service can be a bit speedy at mealtimes but waiter didn't seem to mind when we asked if we could have a minute.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Right at the heart of beautiful Torquay, the Torbay Hotel benefits from stunning views over the lovely harbour. The hotel can be summed up as, 'grand features in warm surroundings,' and includes front-facing rooms with modern facilities - the Premier and Superior rooms are particularly desirable. It has a large ballroom, two bars, an indoor heated swimming pool and a sun terrace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the town centre's shops, boutiques and restaurants. After two years of extensive restoration Royal Terrace Gardens (aka "Rock Walk") has been returned to its former glory with a modern day twist. Located just next to the Torbay Hotel, Rock Walk offers spectacular views across the bay, and at night when it is beautifully lit up, it makes for the perfect evening stroll. ... more   less
