“Lovely Breakfast”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Stayed here for a short break in Torquay. Lovely hotel, very clean and welcoming. Coffee or tea on arrival very nice. Breakfast, the choice is amazing. Not far from the centre of the town, walkable. There is a small bar in the lounge area, although I didn't try this - it looks fully stocked with a great range of drinks. Worth staying here if you are in Torquay for a relaxing break.

Stayed April 2014, travelled solo

So I read the reviews for this hotel and saw how great they were, so I booked to stay for my husbands birthday in the suite with terrace for 2 nights.
From the moment we arrived we were well looked after, we were offered complimentary tea or coffee which was nice. Gary really was lovely and made us feel right at home.
The room was amazing, so big with a fantastic king size bed...not only that they had put rose petals on the bed which was lovely. There was plenty of tea and coffee in the room, toiletries and also bottles of water. Breakfast was fantastic, having travelled and stayed in many hotels we were both blown away with how much was on offer and the extra little things like the shots of cranberry and raspberry which were yummy! The cooked breakfast was amazing but could have done with some beans. The service was 5 star and Chris was so attentive, he really looked after us! After working in the industry ourselves and having travelled a lot we do tend to have high expectations when staying somewhere but The Meadfoot Bay honestly exceeded our expectations and will be without a doubt staying again in the future! Thank you all for making my husbands weekend a one to remember :)

Room Tip: Suite 21 is fantastic, really big and spacious, nice furnishings and an amazing bathroom, though I a...

Me and my partner came to stay here for two nights for a friend's wedding travelling from Newcastle. What a great find! We were greeted by Chris, the owner, and made to feel very welcome as he offered us drinks on arrival. We had booked the classic compact double room and it was perfect. It had a lovely spacious bathroom and the bed was very comfortable with nice soft pillows too. Excellent value for money and not a disappointment at all. My favourite part of our stay had to be the breakfast. Wow, the choices available were fantastic. Anything you can think of they served in the buffet. Immediately served tea and coffee when you're seated. Chris was so attentive to our needs and always asking what cooked breakfast we would like. It was unbelievable. There is something for everyone.
I was just gutted to leave as our stay at meadfoot had to be one of the best.ive ever had in a hotel. I would definitely come back again. Time to plan next year's holiday :-) Fantastically run hotel with lovely owners. Thank you!

Stayed here for four nights and it was one of the best places I've ever stayed in. The staff were just fantastic at giving the personal touch and made you feel like you were at home. There was ample choice for breakfast and the cooked breakfast was amazing, every morning. We stayed in a classic double which had plenty of room, and was wonderfully comfortable and clean for the duration.

The hotel is near to Meadfoot beach which was a beautiful little bay, and a short walk to Torquay harbour where everything was situated.

I would strongly recommend this hotel, it was absolutely outstanding! Will definitely stay here again.

We booked this hotel at short notice for one night. We were initially impressed by the area - very nice road with a lovely feel to it. The hotel itself is set back from the road and first impressions were again very good - nice car park, with a couple of raised seating areas, all beautifully landscaped.
Although we arrived quite a bit earlier than the check-in time, the owner couldn't have been more helpful and arranged for our bags to be put in the room as soon as it was ready, while we went out to the town.
The hotel is very near a beautiful bay and within a short distance of the town centre, so very well positioned.
Our room (no 9) was fabulous and extremely comfortable. Large room, with equally large and very luxurious bathroom. It felt like a 5 star hotel in many respects.
Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice, including cold and hot options. It was tempting to try the lot!
All in all, we were extremely impressed with Meadfoot Bay, both in terms of comfort and customer service and would highly recommend it. We will back ourselves ASAP!

Stayed for 5 nights and we wished we could have doubled that time, excellent family run hotel in a quiet part of Torquay, and as stated 2 minute walk to Meadfoot beach which has some facilities, but was great for an early morning walk before breakfast.
We had a Suite Room which was not only luxurious and spacious but also had the beauty of the terrace for the sunny afternoons we enjoyed.
Breakfast - I have never seen so much choice and the cooked breakfast with local ingredients was best in class.
Friendly, and welcoming what more could you ask for, and also as stated a 15 minute hilly walk to any restaurant in the town, approx £4 cab ride back, again a recommended provider.

Room Tip: Room 21 is one of the 3 Suites and certainly worth the cost

Booked for a couple of nights to get away from the hurly burly and wished we could have stayed longer. Comfortable room, good facilities, excellent service, with friendly and helpful advice in a quiet part of Torquay, not far a lovely beach and only 10 minutes from some excellent restaurants.
