From the telephone booking on a weekday evening to our last day we experienced only the best o attention by the Meadfoot Bay team. The breakfasts were truly wonderful and attention to detail within the property amazing everything beautifully arranged a well thought-out. We were made extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Cant wait to visit again.

We have stayed at the Meadfoot Bay Hotel on many occasions, and our most recent visit was June 2012. The welcome we received form Chris, Caroline and Gary couldn't have been better, their attention to detail makes sure your stay is one to fondly remember always.
The Hotel is maintained to a very high standard, the rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable, and the superb breakfasts are not to be missed.
We are looking forward to visiting again soon.

We stayed two nights at the Meadfoot Bay. Very nice house, our room was recently modernised and had the quality and design of a 5 * boutique hotel with a confortable bed and a very large designer bathroom. We had a room directly across the reception - ususally a no go - but the house is so quiet, with thick carpets, that we had a good long sleep. Breakfast was excellent, a very good selection and freshly cooked. And the service was incredibly good. The owners are very nice and we received good tips for dinner restaurants and golf courses. We had forgotten something in our room and they owners were so nice to send it to our home. A very enjoyable and relaxing stay.

I stayed for night whilst on business. After a lousy journey, it was a delight to be greeted by Caroline who promptly showed me through to the lounge and brought me an excellent pot of tea. My room was a small double, which was very well described on their website. It was presented to a very high standard and the bathroom was excellent. Gary was an excellent source of local information and kindly organised a cab to take me to the restaurant in town. Breakfast was simply stunning. Chris, Caroline and Gary, run, in my opinion , an excellent guest house. Their attention to detail and enthusiasm is second to none.

Just returned from a long weekend at Meadfoot Bay Hotel celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. The entire stay was a joy; the owners are most welcoming and the hotel itself comfortable, super-clean and excellent value given the service and opulent standard of the accommodation.
The breakfast selection and quality surpasses all expectations; the range of different foods both "continental" and "full English" has to be seen to be believed. The location is so convenient for both the quietness of Meadfoot Bay and Torquay itself with its variety of restaurants and entertainment.
Owing to previous experience we are always slightly dubious when we see an electric shower unit in a bathroom but this one was very powerful, delivered a great volume of water and with one click so easy to use. Complimentary welcome-drinks in the room, bottled water, tea-making facilities, quality toiletries, wifi and a good TV all added to the comfort of the stay. We certainly will return as soon as possible.
Thank you Chris, Caroline and Gary for making our stay so relaxing.

the owners Chris, Caroline and their son Gary make you feel welcome immediately. Their attentive and friendly service is first class. Breakfast for an additional 10 pound is absolutely worth it. Extensive selection and cooked to order. the rooms are small but impeccably clean. the shower was however very odd and took a while to access hot water.

the hotel common area was traditionally appointed and the garden areas well maintained.

The walk to town was up and then down a steep hill however a taxi is only 5 pound and readily available

iI definitely recommend Meadfoot Bay and will return one day.Great value for money!!! Keep up the great work Chris and family
