“Gem of the English Riviera”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

Stayed for 2 nights and will defo go back there again. Rooms are being refurbished gradually but even the 'older' rooms were clean, bright and airy (we were shown 4 to choose from). Brand new bathroom with power shower - lovely!! Julie and Bill are the perfect hosts. They work hard and it shows. There is a half size billiard table and dart board, television lounge with leather suite and a very spacious and airy conservatory looking out at the beach. Breakfast was a real treat too, wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Some rooms were smaller than others but they were all good. Busy road at front of hotel but we stay...

Arrived Friday of August Bank holiday weekend, they were fully booked,Our friends had booked this hotel & we arrived first but that was no problem,They gave all guests a warm welcome & a welcome Cup of Tea on arrival. When My friend arrived another cup of tea was brought & there was no hurring us to go to our rooms.Breafast was excellent & served very quickly. Evening meal was plentyfull, & there was a choice as well. The room was lovely & clean & nicely made up with towels & toiletries on the bed. Plenty of draws & hangers in the wardrobe. We had a walk in shower which was powerful & warm when we wanted it. Plenty of lounge area for guests to sit in the evening, seperate TV lounge & games room as well. Overall very good value for money. We will definately be back next year.

it was with trepidation that my husband and i booked this hotel for my mother and aunt as they are a particular pair with definite ideas! However we knew we made the right choice the minute we stepped through the door to drop them off. Following a wonderful welcome (and a cup of tea!) from Julie they were settled into their spotless comfortable room. It certainly was a home from home as Julie had promised. The little touches such as a glass of water at their table each morning for their tablets, the wonderful home-cooked food and the smiley service from Julie, Becky their waitress and the rest of the team made their stay even more relaxing, enjoyable and stress-free - not only for them but also for us! We all cannot recommend this hotel highly enough - particularly for those of a certain age!

Family of 4 stayed here in August 2012 for 2 nights. We booked over the phone without giving any deposit after talking to Julie. When we arrived sure enough we were booked in and shown to our 2 rooms, (1 twin,1dble), both rooms were spotless and we were made very welcome. We were given a front door key which was most welcome as we came back late and the hotel was in darkness but this was not a problem. We only stayed B&B the breakfast was very good cooked to your order and served with a smile. We had a good stay.

Just spent a week at Coombe Court - Accomodation, Food and Hosts Julie & Bill made this a really good break.
The Home Cooked Breakfasts and Dinners were excellent - cooked to perfection and overall nothing was too much trouble for Julie and Bill, we were made really welcome.
As the Title of our Review says you will be extremely hard pressed to find better in Torquay.

I wrote a review here in 2009 (the one with 24 people staying for one weeks half board). I am responsible for arranging a group holiday of around 24 every June, and have done so for ten years.
The one thing we have said we would not do is repeat a venue..we like to move on! However, following our experience in 2009 we have returned to this excellent hotel each year, and hope to do so again next year too! This in itself should confirm the very high quality, to say nothing of exceptional value, that Julie and Bill offer. The bedrooms..although very acceptable to begin with...are gradually being refurbised to a very good standard indeed, and the food,both for breakfast and dinner is good, traditional, fare, with plenty of choices, properly prepared and cooked, and served piping hot.
The lounge and conservatory are very pleasant indeed and 'house' us all together in comfort if we so wish.
And ..we can park our cars in the roomy car park.
In the course of weekend voluntary lecturing work for my church I have had cause to stay in hotels literally accross England and Wales, but large or small, 'budget' or expensive, none of them have impressed me more than Coombe Court does,
As a matter of interest, picking up a point made by a reviewer above, when I send out request forms to the group each year I do get requests for a bath from one or two couples, but many more specify a shower.
On behalf of at least thirty folks who have enjoyed Coombe Court hospitality together at least three and most of them four times over the past four years, and other couples who have visited at different times on our recommendation, my wife, Val, joins me in saying a very big thank you to Julie and Bill for making our work of organizing this party so much easier, and helping us to have such a lovely holiday in a wonderful area. See you next year God Willing! Mike Riley (Ferndown, Dorset).

Room Tip: Val and I have used four different rooms now, and all were acceptable. Balcony rooms tend to have sm...
