“Very friendly hosts, bathroom sorely needs updating!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Were met on arrival by Steph who was lovely and helpful as everyone has said! We stayed in the superior double room which was clean and well furnished. We felt the bathroom really let it down, with its rather outdated avocado(!!) toilet and sink, old style basic shower enclosure and the shower control unit was positioned on a wooden board OUTSIDE the shower. The tiles I'm sure had been painted over, sealant looked messy and about 3 inches thick. The weird plastic shower caddy had mold growing behind. I must say apart from that it was at least clean which is the main thing! I don't think the room should be called superior whilst the ensuite is as it is, we ceratinly felt a little disappointed.
Breakfast was lovely, excellent choice and nicely cooked english breakfast with good choice on continental with special dietary requirements kindly catered for on request.
All in all a good experience, just let down by the bathroom!

A very friendly welcome and then excellent service throughtout my two day stay. Room was comfortable and well-equipped and though facing onto a main road there was little noise at night. The plumbing. TV and lighting all worked properly unlike many other places. Excellent quality breakfast with generous portions. The Atlantis is very convenient for the sea-front (< 10 minutes down a easy hill), Torquay's shopping streets and especially the Riviera Conference Centre. Useful range of local shops, restaurants and pubs a few steps from the hotel. I easily found good parking in a nearly side-street but I understand there is some parking to the rear of Atlantis. One the best guesthouses I have stayed in especially at the rate of £35 for single occupancy of a double that I paid.

Stayed in this htel with my husband and my 18 month old daughter.. fantastic!!
Booked in for 3 nights.Only a 10 mnute walk from the train station, easy to find...only a few minutes away from the sea front.
Was greeted by steph who was lovely and friendly. showed us to our room which was nice,clean.. enought room for the 3 of us. Had put the travel cot up and supplied us with babys bedding.
Was told it was ok to leave our pushchair in the lounge area,which was helpful for us.
Breakfast the next day was lovely. all 3 of us had a full english. lots of toast,tea coffee ect. was a highchair already at our table for our daughter. asked for juice for our daughter which was then at our table for the next 2 mornings (which was a lovely touch)
Was close enough to town with out being to close. tried the pub accross the road which was lovely. also the beefeater at the bottom of the road which again was very nice.
I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. I would defo stay again :)
The only fault that i can give it is that the toilet was very noisy :( so when flushed early hours of the morning it woke everyone up, but not only ours but we heard the other rooms to...
But like i say, the only fault i can give the hotel. Very impressed .

We loved every minute of our mini break in Torquay. We stayed for four nights at the Atlantis and are planning to return in November. Steph and Simon made us feel so welcome and the overall atmosphere was relaxed and friendly.
Parking was great too - we have a much loved motorbike and the parking area was at the rear of the hotel and off the road which meant it was safe and secure.
Our room was clean with all the usual homely comforts including fruit sweets ! The bathroom had a bath and shower and lovely soft fluffy towels. Fabulous breakfasts !
Everything about the Atlantis was perfect really - I would recommend it to friends and family and can't wait to visit again.......

We found the Atlantis to be very friendly and a great value place to stay. Steph the owner was really helpful and gave us lots of advice on good places to visit in the area. It was a very relaxing stay and good location, only a 5 minute walk down to the beach. The car park is very small and we had to park on the street but this wasn't a problem as there are lots of residential roads at the back with lots of spaces to park.

We stayed here for a couple of days as one of us had an interview. The hosts were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us, including helping with arrangements for the interview, which was very helpful.
The room was clean, with plenty of tea, coffee etc and even biscuits and boiled sweets!
The breakfast was really lovely and you could tell that they used quality ingredients.
We would definitely stay here again.
