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.

Great stay again on our 3rd stay very clean, although a little oldy worldy it's has great character. If I had a complaint it would be it was ridiculously hot all heating on despite it being 16c in paignton that week so it felt like a sauna!!! Really no need of heating on this time of year !! ( or turn it down!!)

We revisited the Redcliffe for our 25th wedding anniversary lunch. The hotel looked after us very well in 1999 and again in 2024. The staff, the service and the food all went toward making our day very special. The views of Torbay from our table in the ballroom had the memories flooding back. Thank you

This trip was a 2 night break for me to relax and unwind and I certainly did that! The hotel is fabulous, the staff are attentive and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The pool and spa are fabulous and I spent many hours lounging in the large hot tub with my book. The hotel is perfectly situated on the beach and has lovely walks along to the cliffs. I managed to do a 6 mile round trip easily and the scenery was stunning! My bedroom was perfect for me but would have been tight for 2. It was great having a bath too! The bar is a little dull and would benefit from some zhuzing up but the bar staff are friendly and chatty and the food was perfect for ehat I needed. The Redcliffe is a gem in so many ways and I will definitely return.

I recently held my Mum’s celebration wake at the Redcliffe Hotel and it was absolutely brilliant. The staff were very attentive and extremely helpful. The food was fantastic, fresh sandwiches, delicious scones, cream and jam, freshly made fruit cake, tea, coffee and a bar on hand as well. It was a perfect location, plenty of space, plenty of seats and tables and private enough. A speaker for back ground music, opportunity to display photos and a screen to play photos. I also held my Dad’s wake there 17 months previously and went back again because I was so impressed with the location and service from the staff. Thank you for helping to make the celebration of my parents long lives so special, two great send offs.

Another great stay at the Redcliffe. Great location overlooking the sea with shops and restaurants within walking distance and good free onsite car parking. All staff at the hotel friendly and helpful and cannot do enough for you to make your stay enjoyable. They definitely go above and beyond. Excellent breakfast, cooked, cereals, pastries, fruit, toast etc. Great bar with bar menu, good selection of meals. Plenty of areas around the hotel to sit and relax and the outside terrace is fabulous looking out to sea.

I must have passed this hotel hundreds of time in my youth, but have never been inside or in the grounds. Today, my sister and I had a lunch there and we sat in the bar. It was all very pleasant. The staff were very attentive and we enjoyed our sandwiches which seemed very fresh. There was a lovely outlook to the sea although the weather wasn’t very good, we shall be coming again.

We eat out regularly as a group of friends, we lunch, we dinner, we holiday and we afternoon tea, today we chose to afternoon tea at the Redcliff, hotel, firstly we were impressed by the price, afternoon teas can typically be in the range of over £20 but this one was just £14.50, I can honestly say it was every bit as lovely as ones we have paid twice the price, it was fresh, tasty and totally delicious, one of the best we’ve tried, this will now be a regular place for us, can’t recommend it enough.

Stayed at the hotel for one night. I was the only guest in a 70+ room hotel. Felt very strange and lonely. Was it but spooky seeing more staff walking around than guests. As I was the only guest I would have thought they have given me a far superior bedroom or even one that looked directly out the the sea with a better view than what I did have of the extension rooftop. Bedrooms could do with modernisation with walk in showers and they were very hot even with the heating turned down. This was tired with an old bath to step over. Television had Freeview channels, but not all working. Had a kettle with free tea bags, coffee etc. Leisure facilities available like gym, pool and sauna/steam room. Hotel car parking is free for guests and very large. There were also lots of disability spaces located outside the front door. No EV charging available which was a shame. The restaurant is located next to the bar area. The meals are reasonably priced. I did not eat there as I was the only guest and felt I would go out to a local restaurant for a bit more atmosphere. The walk into town is about 10mins along the seafront. The breakfast is a reasonable choice between hot and cold buffet. On a positive note the hotel staff are super friendly and helpful where it was possible. Full credit to the staff. I understand the hotel maybe having a full re-fit this year. It does need it if correct.
