My girlfriends and I decided to spend a weekend away in Torquay to celebrate my engagement and we booked two nights at The Mount Edgcombe. What a fantastic find!! It is a beautiful, friendly hotel run by a lovely couple, Pam and Dave, for whom nothing is too much trouble! From the moment we walked in we felt relaxed and at home, which is exactly what you want when taking a break from work.
The rooms are newly refurbished with vibrant and modern furnishings and everything was spotlessly clean. You could really tell that a lot of thought had been put into designing the rooms to make them feel welcoming and comfortable. There is a cozy lounge area with the most enormous sofa I have ever seen, with a big tv and lots of DVD's to choose from. There is also a light and spacious dining room which offers a large selection for breakfast (including a fabulous fry up) and a brand new and modern bar area.
The hotel is within very easy walking distance of the town centre and beaches so it is an ideal place to stay if you want to experience Torquay without being in the frantic bustle of the main town.
My girlfriends and I have stayed and worked in plenty of hotels before and we all have careers within the hospitatlity industry, so we know what we're talking about. There was not one thing that we could critisize about this hotel, everything was spot on. By the end of our stay at The Mount Edgcombe, we had all agreed that the hotel was brilliant value for money and it made for a perfect weekend. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and we will definitely be going back there, hopefully sooner rather than later!!
