“Short break bliss”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

This wonderful Edwardian building and the friendly welcome from the effervescent Marion made our two day stay so much better than expected. The Riviera Room is truly worth the extra with its fabulous comfy bed and the double aspect view of both the garden and the sea, plus the huge ensuite luxury bathroom (including fluffy white bathrobes). Everything was very clean and the breakfasts could have been endless if we hadn't shown restraint. Yum...
I'm sure we'll be back to enjoy Charterhouse again with its great position, so close to both the sea and the countryside.

We stayed at the Charterhouse with two of our friends on the 20th April for three nights. The welcome we received from Marion made us feel at home right away. The rooms were homely, and very clean with all the facilities you could wish for.We are still talking about the Breakfasts, superb, especially the home made jams marmalade and bread made by Les, everything you could possibly want and more is available. Hotel is very central to everything especially the lovely Cockington Village. We will only stay at this Hotel when we visit Torquay again. Well done Marion and Les.

Room Tip: Room number 3 has a huge bed, very comfortable.

First, Marion and Les are great. They are incredibly thoughtful, helpful and inviting. They made our stay a real pleasure - and very easy with little kids. I find travelling with kids is tough and few hotels are set up to make it easier. The Charterhouse put us in a room with an adjoining single bedroom, so that the adults could stay up beyond 8pm. Makes such a difference. Our stay was lovely and we will return.

We stayed here for a 2 day break to visit my brother. and we had the Garden Room although a little snug the room was clean comfotable light and airy with a really lovely shower (most unusual for a room of this size!) Les and Marion are great hosts! and they obviously take great pride in their business and it shows Marion is chatty and helpful. and gives a warm welcome The breakfast is indeed worthy of all the praise we can offer (much better than a more expensive hotel that we stayed at later in the week) Would we stay there again YES most definnitely and we will also recommend to the Family.

Room Tip: Although the Garden Room was lovely the small swimming pool is just outside the door and we would t...

My family and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Charterhouse Hotel. We have two young children (2 & 5) and struggled to find a family hotel that would accommodate us all. We booked on reviews alone and we were not disappointed. We stayed in room 16 which is a family room with an interconnecting room for the children. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. Marion & Les are fantastic hosts and immediately made us all feel welcome and relaxed. They were great with the boys and could not do enough to ensure we all had a great holiday. The breakfasts were to die for and Les' home made bread, jams and chutney were just excellent, and those eggs were perfection! So for those who cannot make up your mind about where to stay in Torquay just book it, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: For families with young children room 16 has an interconnecting twin room with its own TV.
