My wife and I recently drove down from Edinburgh to Torquay to celebrate her 60th birthday. We turned up unannounced. We had been to this hotel on 3 previous occasions,the last time had been over 4 years ago. This time (late in the evening), unannounced, we were met by a member of staff that did not know us; we were given a warm welcome and made to feel comfortable. The hotel's constantly being refurbished and to a high standard.
We normally don't eat in, but on this occasion we did on a number of nights - the food was to a high standard (the tour of the kitchen was interesting - part of my job is as a Medic & safety manager and here I found a high standard).Another guest also commented (positively) to me on this.
On one occasion, we had returned as the evening meal was finishing (having forgotten to make an evening meal booking) and the chef was about to leave - the managers wife carried out the cooking of our meal, which was well prepared - and all without any fuss.
The hotel has its own coach to provide daily tours - the highly skilled driver and the tours are well worth the booking.
The hotel husbandry is also to a high standard.
I can thoroughly recommend this hotel to any age group, I will return again to Torquay, and to the same hotel.
