Good quiet hotel in residential area, away from the hustle and bustle but near enough to reach by car bus or 15 minute walk.

Good food, great entertainment, and pleasent staff. Rooms a little tired with the decor etc., but very clean with good room service

Went on a 5 day break with Shearings
Everything in the hotel was great apart from The 80+ stairs that had to be negotiated to our bedroom as there was only one lift and the hotel was full .Some peoples need was greater than ours The room was good The food was good Cant speak for the entertainment as we went out in the evening to enjoy the good weather
The stairs were the only downside but as long as you are reasonably fit it is not a problem

Room Tip: If you are not reasonably fit ask for a room on a low floor and if noise disturbs you ask for a rear room as the traffic noise goes on till the early hoursin the front

Thank for your review of your recent stay with us at the Torbay, I am glad that you enjoyed the food and that your room was to your satisfaction. We do have four floors so there are a lot of stairs but the lift is always there if people don't want to use them, or as I was told today, its a good way of working off breakfast!

Having travelled with a group of friends every year for the last ten years to a variety of "budget" hotels I can say this was by far the best break we have had. The hotel is perfectly located less than 5 minutes from the town centre and right opposite the marina. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded and I would like to thank the manager for his assistance with this, but even the standard rooms were clean and well presented. The meals whilst not being particularly large were more than sufficient, tasty and well cooked. The staff without fault were polite and friendly. In summary this hotel offers great value for money and we will definitely return to it or one of its sister hotels.

We booked 2 rooms in this hotel for 3 nights (Friday 24Th Sunday 26Th may) both rooms front facing, one standard and one premier. Arrived 19.40 on the Friday and as the restaurant closed at 20.00 was told to go straight in for dinner which we did.We were shown to our table which you use for the length of your stay.the waiter said not to rush and enjoy our meal which by the way was very nice. Our room was the premier room 216 which was large with a 4 poster bed with a seating area by the windows, separate dressing area then the bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle, found it a bit noisy at night with the traffic mainly taxis up to about 3.30 in the morning and revellers shouting funny songs they sing that time We found the food was of a good standard and if you wanted more all you had to do was ask.didn't use the bar so cant comment on that.The heating was not on so got a bit chilly in the rooms, Booked the hotel parking but not parking were it said on the web site but a lot further away and up hill not good if you got walking difficulties which i do, all in all we found the staff to be very polite and helpful Would i stay in this hotel again yes perfectly positioned for town and harbour but would have room at back and park at the multi storey car park around the corner

Room Tip: As i said in my review rooms are quieter at the rear of the hotel

Thank you for posting a review of your stay with us and I am pleased that you enjoyed one of our popular Premier rooms. I am glad that you were well looked after in the Restaurant and that the food you had was good and service by the staff was friendly and attentive. We are located on the sea front in a great spot, but occasionally the ;singing revellers' do pass by. Hopefully we will see you again shortly.

Just arrived back from a 4 day stay at the Torbay Hotel, Torquay. We booked through National Holidays.
The hotel is right on the front overlooking the sea. We didn't get a sea view, because we opted out of paying the supplement. However, this was okay, as we didn't spend much time in the room, which, by the way was more than comfortable. We asked for more pillows when we arrived, and they were delivered to our room quickly. The meals were brilliant, plenty of choice, and the service impeccable. Thankyou to Inga, who started at the hotel on the day we arrived. All of the waiters, and waitresses deserve good tips, they work so hard, and always with smiles on their faces ! Plenty to do in Torquay, and the boat trip to Brixham is well worth the £2.00 return fare we paid. Well done everyone at the Torbay Hotel, we will certaily be coming back. Thankyou
