“Another fab time at the Tor Dean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Thanks Dave and Nicki for another great stay at the Tor Dean. There is not a lot I can add to what I have said on previous visits to this fantastic home from home hotel. You must be doing every thing right as we have been every year since you opened and we have seen what a fantastic job you have done to make the Tor Dean what it is today. Unfortunately we had to come home a day earlier than planned due to my husband being taken ill but Dave and Nicki still found time to make sure he was okay before we travelled. Will definitely see you again next year. You deserve all the reviews you get as this must be the best hotel in Torquay. Lots of love to you all.xxx

Another great holiday at the Tor Dean. Nothing is to much trouble for either Nicola or David. The rooms are warm & comfortable, the food is excellent with a full English for breakfast that sets you up for the day and an evening menu with great variations to choose from. If you fancy a drink in the evening then the small, but adequately stocked, bar is sufficient for all but the fussiest of drinkers. This was not our first visit here and certainly will not be our last (In fact we have already re-booked for next year)

We stayed here for a week in July, Hotel owner's Dave and Nicola were really friendly, Dave picked us up from the train station on arrival and made us a cup of tea when we got to the hotel. The room was lovely very well presented and spotlessly clean, beds were very comfortable there was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, bathroom was small but adequate. Tea and coffee making facilities were in the room along with biscuits and sweets. Rooms were cleaned daily. Meals - we stayed on a half board basis you are allocated a table which was yours for the duration of your stay, each evening you had a menu to chose your breakfast option which consisted of full English, toasted tea cakes, continental, fruit, yogurt, cereals, toast, kippers, various egg dishes, then each morning you had your evening meal menu which had a choice of starter, main and dessert all food was delicious and cooked well. There is a bar area where you can get drinks before dinner or Dave will bring them to your table. The hotel has a comfortable lounge to relax in on a evening where you can also watch television. The outside has a decked area with table and chairs and lovely flower arrangements. The hotel is a 15 minute walk to the train station and about a 30 minute walk to the start of the town centre which has ample shops and cafes which serve delicious cakes and cream teas. Dave is very helpful if you want any information on places to visit or things to do and how to get there. We visited Plymouth by train, Teignmouth, Paignton and babbacombe by bus, Brixham by ferry and we walked to Cockington all places are well worth a visit. Overall this is a fantastic Hotel with lovely hosts which made our stay in Torquay even more memorable.

Thank you Carol for your lovely kind words. It was great to meet you and your mum and we are so pleased you had such a good time. The weather was good and the hotel was full to overflowing with such great guests including yourselves. The reviews our guests write are a huge compliment to us and after 12 years we are still enjoying running the hotel.

Thank you once again and send our best wishes to your mum.

You are assured of a very warm welcome when you arrive at the Tor Dean. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable & the meals are excellent with a good choice on the menu.
Nicola & Dave are great hosts, so friendly and helpful that nothing is too much trouble for them, whether it is information on local events, places to visit or a specific requirement that you may have. Thank you for making our stays so enjoyable, we are already looking forward to our next visit,

We chose to stay here after reading all the glowing reviews here and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were given a warm cheerful welcome by the exceedingly lovely owners, David and Nicola. We stayed in the double en suite room which was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was delicious and filling with David making sure you never ran out of tea and toast!

All in all it was a real pleasure staying there and we will return.

On a final note, a special big thank you to our hosts for catering for us vegans. It's special touches like that which makes a truly fantastic stay.
