we were picked up by the inclusive coach in Derby , and taken to the hotel via Birmingham where a party from a british legion got on. After a journey with several stops we arrived at the hotel. We were greeted by Pete the owner and 6 foot talking santa . The hotel was decorated for christmas very well . Our room (22) was very tastefully decorated with high ceilings and a comfortable bed . The sea view was spoilt by large inflated tennis court and a hot air balloon on the sea front . The meals were very good with a large variety for each course . The entertainment was good most nights except the might they only had bingo and games (boring ). They had 2 trips out 1 inclusive and 1 for £5 , good value . As pete was also from Birmingham we felt like we brum not torquay but they were all very friendly . Beware the mincepies ! A very good t & t with a decent present from santa and his elf and reindeer

Had a recent three night stay at the hotel. Our break was very relaxing, as this family run hotel provides a stress free environment with nothing too much trouble. We would recommend this hotel to family's with children of all ages and we will be back next year as it is it excellent value for money!

We have just got back from a mid week trip to Torquay, and we stayed at the excellent Howden Court Hotel. From the minute we arrived to the time we left we had a fabulous time, such a warm welcome from Peter and Gail and the rest of the staff. We stayed bed breakfast and evening meal, our room was very comfortable, plenty of room, and a good sized en suite. Meals were excellent with plenty of choice. Entertainment was laid on which was excellent and the games night was brilliant. Although we travelled to Torquay in our own car, we took advantage of the hotels own coach for a day trip out to Looe in Cornwall, whcih was well organised and very enjoyable.

We are really looking forward to our next trip there, in November.

What can I say, this is our 6th annual holiday & we drive down from Scotland!. We came to Howden Court by chance after being booked in a previous hotel which was a disaster (pleased to say it is closed down) & Pete showed us around and we just keep going back.. My husband & I have been going with our son since he was 12 (he is now 18) and yes he was with us this year again. (think he may bring his new girlfriend next year) Pete & Gail open there doors and welcome you in whole heartedly. The entertainment, games night, Theatre & Quiz Nights allow everyone to let their hair down & join in the fun. From the very young to the older generation ALL are welcome. Breakfast & Dinner is always very good, the rooms (which we have stayed in several over the years) are of a good clean quality. Rooms nicely decorated, bathrooms spotlessly clean & if anything is required you only have to ask because nothing is a problem. We've made friends with several people over the years & its nice to see them when we return. You know who you are !!! All being well we will see you next year.

Room Tip: We like the sea view rooms (although tennis dome blocks it a bit) its not hotels fault
