“one terrible hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2011

stayed at this hotel on a coach trip read previous remarks about smoking but they should be more concerned about three fire doors permently wedged open all the time we were there food was tasteless and small portions floorboards were a nightmare bathroom measured 29 inches depth take of toilet roll holder and towel rail left 21inches to sit down on the loo noise from the entertainment was so loud you could not hear your tv and you could hear next door snoring all night half hour journey to town which is empty after five thirty rooms not cleaned properly in all felt like an old peoples home and looked nothing like internet photos save your money and dont go

I spent 5 days at the Seascape and enjoyed it immensely, room was spotless , the cleaner could not do enough for you, all the staff were friendly and very helpful, food was excellent, good entertainment at night.
It might be a 2 star hotel but the service is 5 star. Well done to the staff and management.

After reading the many reviews with regards to the Seacape Hotel, Torquay I was spurred to write one of my own. I and my husband stayed at this hotel in July 2010 with a large tour group organised by Newmarket Holidays. On arrival our bags were quickly taken to our rooms and at reception the staff gave us our keys. Dinner was at 18.30, and served downstairs, with seating arrangements of 2 or 4 people to a table. The service was fast and efficient.
The rooms at the hotel are comfortable, with tv, and en suite. We were lucky enough to have a sea view (albeit the sea was some way off). The hotel have a 'no smoking' policy in the rooms, which is an excellent idea. I understand they had a fire there some years ago and do not want a repetition! This does annoy some people especially smokers who now have to go outside. SHAME..
The hotel was built in 1856 so it is certainly not the Ritz, and does have some internal problems, as mentioned in some reviews. The squeeky floorboards, and many hallways and landings. However, firstly if you want to book your own hotel then DON'T GO ON A COACH TRIP, and secondly if you want the Hilton then pay Hilton prices.
Stop moaning and get on with your life... if you have one. Judging by some of the comments you don't have one!
The tour company we travelled with are good, not excellent. The price we paid for our holiday was fair. Even the entrance costs to the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens was included!!
On our holiday there were some downside to it, especially the coach which many found uncomfortable, with no toilet or drinks machine. The tour manager did a great job, and gave us plenty of stops to use the facilities and was very organised. He gave us loads of information about everything, so no moans there. The coach driver Terry, a gentleman who helped us enormously.
So, the Seascape Hotel, Torquay is good value for money, you must take the price into consideration for the benefits received. I have only one more gripe and that was we had to travel 2 hours to get to Cornwall....Mind you it was a pleasant trip. Thanks for reading my review. I will certainly use this hotel again if I go to Torquay.

A very clean hotel but so very cold, there was heating but it wasn't put on early enough. The resturant was freezing, looking forward to a full English breakfast, we were told no tomatoes or mushrooms on the menu !!! next day no baked beans either, egg bacon and fried bread was what you got. Squeaky floor boards were so bad we were very glad to leave after two nights. Staff were very pleasant. Not a lot to do except shopping in the Winter months as the attractions were closed.

We found the Staff including the Owners of the hotel to be very eager to fulfill all of our requests . The accomodation was warm very clean and comfy , meals where home cooked and all of a good quality .
There was entertainment provided each afternoon /evening during our stay over Christmas .
We would certainly recommend it to friends and hope to visit again .
