About
Description
The Esplanade hotel is a pleasant hotel ideally situated and set on a level seafront position just a short walk to the sandy beach, picturesque harbour, pier, shops and brand new cinema. Paignton is right in More the heart of Torbay and is an ideal resort for all ages as well as a great base from which to explore South Devon and the surrounding area. Within the hotel, the south facing Sun Lounge and Harbour Bar Lounge offer stunning views across ‘the Bay’ and the attractive Riviera Suite provides a warm and friendly atmosphere to enjoy the entertainment. The Esplanade also offers the opportunity to upgrade your standard room to one with a sea view (charges apply) and the stunning view on a sunny day is certainly worth it! Less

We had a sea view and our room was okay it was just a standard room, the food was okay as i remember but that's a personal thing some may think they are okay some may think they are rubbish.

Wifi is available in the hotel. It gets weaker the further away from the receiver, so it depends on where your room is. It's free, sign in code is available from reception
