4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

We've just had an excellent weekend at the Abbey Lawn. The staff are amazing -- nothing is too much trouble. The food is very good and plenty of choice. Our room was very clean and we had a sea view, which was wonderful. The amenities are fabulous - indoor pool is lovely. The hotel is very well situated for the sea front and also for the shops. Sorry, but one downside is meal times. Breakfast is 8.30a.m which we feel is too early when on holiday. Dinner is 6.30p.m which we can live with but a bit of flexibility would be nice. Having said that, would highly recommend this hotel.

Despite the varied reviews in regard to this hotel I went with an open mind when a large group of us visited for the last week of November on a Robinsons 7 day Turkey & Tinsel. My friend and myself booked a premier room and I would advise this as it is well worth the extra money. Our room had plenty of room and found house keeping visited during breakfast (this may have been the luck of the draw but it was nice none the less!) We found all of the staff to be friendly and helpful and enjoyed many a laugh with Barry whenever we saw him. Heidi was also great as were the other couple who were there some of the time. The food was on the whole very good though nothing too adventurous-but I understand why they are not. Most of the entertainment was very good as were the drivers Allan and Charlie (we got both!) and the excursions were enjoyable. We were even offered a matinee at Babbacombe Theater "Christmas Stars" and those of us who went had a fantastic afternoon. My advise is book a premier room and go visit yourself and make your own mind up-because it is good value for money. Thanks to all involved.

Room Tip: Book a premier room and if you want a decent view ask for a sea facing or sea view room. You can get...

Well we got pretty much what we expected to be honest . The staff were absolutely brilliant and so polite the rooms were spotless and well presented. The food was very hot but not a lot of it but surprisingly we were full ish !!!! when we finished all 3 courses and we have large appetites . The entertainment wasn't the best but saying that the guy who organised it worked very hard.Cant complain at all and would certainly go back .

Room Tip: Brilliant karaoke in a bar down the road on the right hand side, sorry cant remember the name of it...

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night break at the Abbey Lawn Hotel Torquay.
This was an excellent value KGB deal.
The management were accommodating and very friendly.
The restaurant staff were also very efficient and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable.
The choice of food changed each night, also this food was piping hot and always plentiful.
We had good entertainment each evening and also had the use of two lovely pools.
The bedrooms were comfortable with everything at hand for a pleasant stay.
We had good weather and went for many short walks into Torquay town and the surrounding areas.
Over the 3 night stay; we made some fabulous friends during our meals, using the pool, playing bingo and being entertained in the function room.
We would recommend this hotel to couples or families.
We will defiantly be going back, because we found the hotel to be warm and welcoming.
The price we paid was very reasonable for what we had.
Thank you all at the Abbey Lawn Hotel Torquay X

Room Tip: We did not have a sea facing room. We were looking over the car park. This room was on the third flo...

Very enjoyable trip to the hotel, room was comfortable,very spacious and clean, plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner but remember you're not paying restaurant prices as it's good basic food.waiters were quick, polite and professional, all other management and staff helpful and friendly. Evening entertainment was varied and ideal for us. Would go again without hesitation, find it difficult to believe some of the previous negative reviews.

Room Tip: Good view from the back of the hotel, only a small lift to floors.
