“Perfect location, price and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012 via mobile

Under new management since July 2012, this hotel has undergone renovations and had a fresh and friendly appeal. Check in and out was easy and stress free.

The service is excellent as are the location and price. It's a short walk down to the bay and local amenities. Breakfast was great.

There are some stairs at the front but it you enter via the carpark at the rear it's much easier.

We are so pleased that you found everything to your liking here. We do have a fantastic location, just along from the Harbour and shops etc.

We have been working really hard to upgrade the facilities and will be doing some work to the ensuites etc over the winter. It is good to hear that we are going in the right direction and that you enjoyed the service as well.
Many thanks
Ashley and Kathy

We recently stayed 4 nights in this lovely b&b in Torquay. Kathy and Ashley have only recently taken ownership of it and have decorated and furnished it to a high standard.The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable.We had our 14 week old baby with us and Kathy and Ashley had thought of everything for us for our room for the baby, from cot bedding to nappy bags and even a shush baby sleeping sign on our door! I thought it was really thoughtful of them to add these little touches. The breakfast in the morning was delicious,especially the bacon! I would definately recommend a stay in this hotel as the owners are very friendly and welcoming.Lindsey Liverpool

The location of the Ravenswood Hotel is very central, being adjacent to Torquay Museum and on the Agatha Christie Mile.
