Went here in February on a cheap National Holidays deal for £79 pp. We are quite new to coach holidays so am always a little sceptical of what to expect. It is a little bit of a maze finding your room and access seemed to involve going through the dining room and lounge. There is no lift so few stairs... More

Dear Guest, I'm sorry to have to advise you that you seem to have mistaken The Torbay Hotel for another Hotel. We are directly on the seafront at Torquay and National Holidays do not come to this Hotel. Regards Steve Stott More

This hotel is for coach groups of the older person only. The room we stayed in was 1960 style and we felt like idiots going down for breakfast as they allocated tables to the coach people and not for us and we were not informed on booking in we where just told to go for breakfast between 8 and 9am....

At pentacost, all other hotels and B&B's were full, but this hotel had romms for us. Very friendly porter, superb view to the sea an the harbour, very central location. Definitely the money worth. Hotelguests are in our parents age, so it is very quiet.

We chose this hotel for a long weekend break due to its excellent location and because it offered good value for money. Also we had stayed at the hotel in the past and I was keen to see if it had improved. My first impression was that the décor is old and generally the hotel is in need of modernisation.... More

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
