Me and my husband booked to stay at The Torbay Hotel for 1 night as we decided to extend our trip in Torquay and the hotel we were staying in was fully booked. The Torbay had a room available and it was in a good location so we decided to book. From when you walk in the hotel you think it doesn't look too bad, then when we got into the room we was very disappointed, how people can review this hotel as excellent or even good is beyond belief. We paid £80 for 1 nights bed & breakfast which is unbelievable for the room we had. There was only 2 good things about the room, 1; the size was quite good and 2; the view was overlooking the sea front, other than that, that is where the positives stop! The room wasn't overally clean, it had damp and mould on the ceiling the bed was lumpy and of very poor quality, the furniture was very dated, the bathroom was tiny and had mould on the tiles etc. The tv was very old and didn't work overally well. Overall it was a very tired looking room which is in desperate need of refurbishment. You can see that they have refurbished the main entrance which misleads you into thinking that the hotel is nice, but as soon as you step beyond this you can see how old and tired it really is. The breakfast the following morning we were very dubious about but it was ok, all cooked well but you could tell that the quality of ingredients were on the cheaper side, however they did offer an extensive breakfast menu. The service was good overall, the receptionist who dealt with us was helpful and informative. The parking situation is not ideal however at least they have a car park even though you have to walk round the houses to get to it. All in all we were thoroughly disappointed with our stay and would NEVER stay here again and would discourage anyone from staying here!!! I think the owners seriously need to spend the money on the hotel that they are making rather than pocketing it, because I see no signs of this stated refurbishment in the rooms, where it is needed!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Right at the heart of beautiful Torquay, the Torbay Hotel benefits from stunning views over the lovely harbour. The hotel can be summed up as, 'grand features in warm surroundings,' and includes front-facing rooms with modern facilities - the Premier and Superior rooms are particularly desirable. It has a large ballroom, two bars, an indoor heated swimming pool and a sun terrace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the town centre's shops, boutiques and restaurants. After two years of extensive restoration Royal Terrace Gardens (aka "Rock Walk") has been returned to its former glory with a modern day twist. Located just next to the Torbay Hotel, Rock Walk offers spectacular views across the bay, and at night when it is beautifully lit up, it makes for the perfect evening stroll. ... more less
