All bedrooms & bathrooms had been upgraded since our last visit. Our spacious bedroom was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a new flat-screen colour TV & tea-making facilities.
The walk to & from the bedroom was unpleasant as the passages were overheated and it seemed quite a far walk using stairs to get to reception or the recently upgraded dining room.
The entertainment was still of a high standard although I felt that the dancers should keep away from doing gymnastics as part of their dance routine. A delightful young lad, Lewis Cudmore, was a special guest singer. He wowed the audience with his repertoire of songs.
Menu choices were varied and well-presented food of a high standard. Waiters seemed to be of a smarter appearance than our previous visit and offered good service.
This coach holiday was amazing value as it included a few excursions as well.

Room Tip: It would be recommended that those with limited mobility request a bedroom close to the lift or book...

came back the 16th dec had a fab weekend. there were 7 of us we all enjoyed couldn't fault the staff, food, room or entertainment well worth the money the decorations were really lovely lots of xmas spirit and i don't mean just behind the bar. only downside was the bus journey we expected pick ups in wales and bristol as we came from swansea but not going to exeter, taunton and bridgewater surely a mini bus would have been a better option instead of us spending hours on the bus also little disapointed when i asked the driver for some xmas music he said he had no cd so we bought a cd then driver said no cd player so no winning there but as i said earlier hotel, staff and food excellent would return next year if we could find other transport

Have just returned from a five day break at this hotel This is the fifth time I have taken this break It is very obvious that the quality has deteriorated The bedrooms were clean and had previously been upgraded The beds were comfortable and clean there were no toiletries or hairdryer In the restaurant there was obvious deterioration in the food quality. The food was often luke-warm never hot. There were less restaurant staff making it necessary for the waiters to run around to get everyone served quickly. The entertainment was good but the budget of this again has been drastically cut The lavish floor shows of the past are no longer The public areas are showing a need for renovation The drinks were expensive The staff in general were all very pleasant and helpful
I enjoyed the break but I will not visit the Templestowe again for a very long time

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter Some even have a sea view

Thank you for taking the time to review the Templestowe Hotel, I am disappointed even though you enjoyed your stay with us, we did not meet your expectations. As you have visited us before you would have been aware that we only provide soap in the bathrooms and hairdryers are available from reception for no extra charge. You state that the entertainment budget has been cut but this is not the case as during your stay there were two floor shows, cabaret and live music every night with the Entertainment Team offering added entertainment throughout each break. We have just finished the refurbishment of the bedrooms and now are concentrating in the public areas. We have taken a lot of effort in sourcing fresh and local produce and I am surprised at your comments regarding the food quality and will bring this to the Head Chefs attention. I will pass on your comments to the whole team and I hope that you will continue to travel with Majestic Tours and return to the Templestowe in the near future.
