Returned to the Torbay for a 3 night break. Our last visit was 5 years ago, and there has been a definate decline in standards. We stayed on the fourth floor in a front facing room, and although clean could do with up-dating and double glazing fitted due to traffic noise.
Additionally, the only lift was out of action from the early hours of Sunday morning till 3:00PM - meaning having to decend and climb four flights of stairs - no wonder they have chairs on each landing, you need them to catch your breath. There were disabled people on our floor, so god knows how they coped.
Breakfast was fine, but evening meals offered a poor choice of main courses.
Evening entertainment has declined, with only the comedian on Saturday night lightening the mood.
Would not dash back to this hotel again, although Torquay is certainly worth a visit.
- 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
