5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2011

Have visited this hotel several times over several years, each and every time from the lovely Receptionists, waiters, waitressess, housekeeping et al it is our little piece of heaven!
Nothing is too much trouble, the food is always delicious, varied and beautifully presented.
Rooms are excellent and comfortable, with many having amazing views of the bay, cannot recommend The Corbyn Head Hotel highly enough.........Enjoy!

Two night stay; we had booked a 'sea view room' but on arrival due to the hotel being full we were upgraded to a 'balcony sea view room'. Unfortunately room 70 has a partially obstructed sea view in so far as any view towards Torquay and the beach is blocked out by a hotel wall covered with rusty pipes and peeling paintwork . The room was however spacious and comfortable though why in this day and age one has to make do with mixer taps for the shower rather than an electric or pressurised unit, I don't know. The blue formica sink top in the bathroom was also very 1960s.
That said food in both the Harbour View restaurant and the Orchid restaurant was of a very high standard - in fact the Harbour View was so good I am not sure the Orchid was worth the extra premium though the food was that little bit better than downstairs. Service was very good and the majority of the staff very responsive and friendly.
All in all a comfortable and enjoyable stay though a room with a proper sea view and without a balcony (that we didn't need in February) would have been preferred.
One final word of warning, even on the second floor the noise of the passing traffic from the very budy coast road could clearly be heard though I guess this is the same for most hotels along this road.

After going to this Hotel for the past 7 years for Christmas and Valentine weekend's you could not find a better place to go. You are always made to feel very welcome and at home. The staff are so polite and friendly from the Manager to the Room Sevice Staff. The food is exelent and pleanty of it and if you want to change what is on the menu, say change from roast potatoes to chips, their is no problem with that. Your room is always clean, tidy and warm.

All of the staff are very efficient. so friendly and they give great service. The food was excellent, the rooms spotessly clean and the hotel is well located on the front.
If I could have one little complaint it would be to ask one or two of the evening entertainment acts to slightly lower the sound of their music. It was far too loud on 2 occasions over Xmas in a room which isn't that big size wise and obviously has not that large of an audience numbers wise. A brilliant Christmas, Happy New Year Corbyn Head
