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.

We have stayed here a few times and it is fantastic value for money. Our room this time was large and looked as if it had been renovated. The food was good and always hot. Staff are friendly and helpful. We received a free bottle of wine on the first night and 4 free drinks

Even though there is a lift, there are a few stairs on the landings, I saw a chair lift on one set but then not on another, about 4-5 steps. A handful of stairs going up into the dining room.

Hi we went beginning of December there were 12 of us in total. Not one of us had any complaint about the food or anything else. They really accommodated us well our meals were served with ease and a damm good choice was offered, one of our party is gluten free. If you want Something else pay the money and go elsewhere. Entertainment again it depends on what you want!
