I have just spent a long weekend at the Templestowe in Torquay and have to say I had a lovely time.The theme was "Carry on Christmas" and although the poor staff had been doing christmas since September last year,they were still a happy bunch.The decorations were amazing,the staff polite and always smiling and the food and accomadation were first class.
This was my second visit to the hotel and I bet I will go again.
The hotel is owned by the coach company Majestic and the driver (Pedro) had us all in stitches with his sillymusic and jokes.He was very helpful to the less able but never patronising.
My only complaint was lack of heating in the smoking area.It was bitterly cold and wet and a heater would have been a godsend.
They are now doing "Hi Di Hi" with the Krankies.They also have resident singers and comedians.
I highly recommend this holiday to all ages but I believe it is adult only.There is a pool for use in the summer.

Room Tip: There are single rooms available with no extra suppliment.Some of these are on the lower floor where the restaurant and bar are located.There is a lift to all floors.

Thanks for you review. As the originators of the Turkey and Tinsel theme (sorry we are to blame) we really try to make it unique. The staff were very happy you enjoyed their efforts. Thanks Again.

Just returned from the hotel and had a nice time. Good trips out on the coach while we were there. Food was really nice and the waiting staff were really freindly. Entertainment was excellent and Chris Chaplin was so funny.
Our bedroom was nicely decorated and big also the bathroom was large. The staff are all freindly and helpful.

Room Tip: Room at the back of the hotel looking over the sea
