Travellers' Choice
The Meadfoot Bay is currently closed for business. Apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause. We would however like to take this opportunity to thank all our past guests for their support. Exactly what the future holds for Meadfoot at this time is uncertain so please do check our Facebook page for any updates. Meanwhile thank you from all the team at TMB. A cosy, comfy, stylish and above all friendly boutique hotel with an award winning, two rosette brasserie that serves some of the best food in the bay. Plus a team that has one single aim. To make your stay memorable for all the right reasons! Set in a wonderfully tranquil location, just a two minute walk from the blue flag, Meadfoot Beach and less than 15 from Torquay Harbour, the independently owned Meadfoot Bay offers guests a truly stylish alternative We hope we’ll have the chance to welcome you soon to our haven by the bay. By the way please note some guest photos, which can't be edited, show the old cream, gold and red decor from years gone by which is not at all what you will find here today at the Bay!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We've just had a very relaxing 4 nights at The Meadfoot Hotel, where the service, comfort and food was of the highest standard, coupled with value for money. Anna and Marcio who both managed the hotel were extremely efficient and had a good rapport with guests. Together with the support staff of Olivia, Vivien, and Toby, we were extremely well looked after. We wish everyone including the owners all the best for the future.

This is a gem of a hotel in Torquay. Excellent attention to detail from the White Company toiletries to the homemade biscuits, Clippers tea and fresh milk in the mini bar in the room. We stayed for two nights Dinner Bed and Breakfast and the food was incredible, beautiful locally sourced food created and delivered with real care. Homemade Granola and Berry Coulis for the buffet breakfast and scallop and bacon roll, smoked haddock and lots of other options. I don’t think I’ve had a better breakfast in a British hotel. The dinner was top quality and incredible value. We’ll be back!

We’ve visited many a hotel, we love to travel and spend time exploring. So we can write this review from a place of experience. Meadfoot bay hotel is the most thoughtful hotel I have ever visited. Nothing is to much for them. They go out of their way to make sure you are as comfortable and happy as possible. I would go as far as saying the staff are worth their weight in gold! From the moment of booking to checking out they think of every detail! It’s the little things that really make the difference. I won’t ruin any surprises, go! Find out for yourself how awesome this place is! THE FOOD IS INCREDIBLE!!! Perfectly placed just out of time but close enough to access many an adventure! We went shopping, to the beach, visited the theatre and spent the evening enjoying the night life.

My partner booked this as a secret destination and surprise Valentine's Day meal and night away, so I had no idea what to expect: I was more than pleasantly surprised from the moment of our arrival to the time we left. From the warm, relaxed and friendly welcome, to the meal and breakfast the following morning, the staff could not have been any more helpful and charming. Both bedroom and bathroom were of a good size, with the inclusion of a sofa in the bedroom, slippers and dressing gowns in the bathroom. I particularly appreciated the large bottle of water in the fridge, which also contained fresh milk, a welcome change from the usual milk capsules. We had the tasting menu in the evening, which was highly creative and very tasty! Meadfoot beach is only a five minute walk away, so good for an early swim, especially when you can return to a very interesting breakfast menu - another highlight. Indeed, the breakfast alone makes us want to return to spend a few days there so we can work our way through it as it was so difficult to decide what to choose. In all, an excellent experience, and one we'd like to repeat before too long.

Just stayed at this lovely boutique hotel. From the moment we arrived, the service was exceptional. Very welcoming and all the staff we interacted with couldn’t do enough to help. Our room was modern and very nicely decorated, bed super comfy and toiletries thoughtful. We dined in the Brasserie and food was excellent (hats off to the chef). If you are looking at staying or even just dining, don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it!! (Just need to find another reason to go back!)

Arranged a Family Dinner for 8 with 3 couples staying overnight. Pre-event communication was excellent with all arrangements sorted including provision of menus prior to arrival. Rooms were perfect for our needs although there was a problem with the heating (it was freezing weather) but the staff did there best to sort it. The pre-dinner cocktails were just the job followed by an outstanding 3 course meal - the food was excellent. Breakfast the following morning was superb with an excellent choice of hot & cold. Staff looking after us were excellent from start to finish. All in all a lovely experience topped by a travel bag with water/brownies as we checked out/left. Would strongly recommend - excellent value for money,

We didn't stay here but we definitely dined here. Me and my partner went for a celebration meal on Saturday night. From the moment we entered the door to the moment we left we were smiling. Service was impeccable. Food was devine and the atmosphere was just perfect.

From the moment we arrived, the staff were fantastic, and welcomed us so warmly. We were shown to our room and it was just amazing, the suite was so clean, we had everything we could have wished for and our stay was brilliant, breakfast was superb and plentiful. We have to say that the owners of this hotel must be very proud, the decor was amaxing, the standard of cleanliness was of a very high standard, and the staff went above and beyond, We would highly recommend this Hotel to all our friends and family. Thank you Meadfoot Bay we loved every second of it.

A truly excellent experience. Stepping into the hotel allows you to instantly relax, a warm welcome and just the right amount of attention from the staff. We stayed in a suite and what a room to relax and unwind. There was even a little balcony to unwind with a G&T of which one is produced for the hotel (another pleasant surprise). Great amenities and huge bathroom. We chose to eat in the Brasserie after seeing so many positive reviews and the food was better than we ever expected. You really must consider dining here. Location allowed a stroll down the meadfoot beach and wonder around. Although it was a short stay for us we intend to go back as soon as possible to unwind, relax and sample the food again! Thank you

Spent two nights at the mead foot bay hotel with a group of friends to celebrate a special birthday. - There were 8 of us in total. What a lovely hotel. Clean, friendly, well presented with great facilities - and only a short walk to town centre. The breakfast was very special and the staff, without exception, were all excellent. They could not do enough for us during the stay. Would strongly recommend the hotel. Thank you Meadfoot Bay for a memorable weekend.
