“Excellent”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Stayed a night with three work colleagues and we were all very impressed with the Haytor Hotel. Peter and Roger were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating - they even opened the kitchen an hour early so we could have breakfast (which was delicious). The grounds were beautiful, the bar and dining room were charming, and the room was very clean and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend the Haytor.

We stayed here for one night on a theatre trip. The welcome was delightful, the room was comfortable, loved the decor. Breakfast was very nice including marmite, served with a smile from the joint owner. The location was ideal for all the town amenities. Would certainly come back again.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room which was ideal.

Peter and Roger were very helpful. Promptly responded to request for specific room style, provided travel advice with sat nav instructions. Fabulous hotel, a short walk to town and a nice walk to Hope's Nose. Comfy double bedroom + shower (No.14) was tidy, quiet, clean, modern, spacious. Yummy breakfast.

We were visiting relatives in the area and my father-in-law picked this B&B for convenience. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival. The room was nicely decorated and cosy. The bar looked well stocked, unfortunately we didn't have time to sample it. The following morning breakfast was fantastic. Plenty of choice and well cooked, nicely presented. Check out was quick & easy. Throughout we were made to feel very welcome. When visiting the area again we will definitely rebook

Beautifully looked after - over and above the norm. Great communication before arrival. Comfortable bedroom, quiet, clean and tidy with a very nautical theme - perfect for the location. Modern bathroom with lovely fluffy towels. Delicious breakfast. Very amenable to an earlier breakfast with perfectly poached eggs. Perfect location for walking into town for restaurants - with a great choice to be had. Easy parking. Thank you for having us.

Just returned from a brilliant weekend away in Torquay. The Haytor hotel has everything you want for a short break. it is very close to the town centre, has good facilities and the owners Peter and Roger saw to it that we wanted for nothing. Very friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble, would definitely stay again. Lounge bar was very nice and the food was excellent. Thank you!

The title of this review refers to Roger and Peters attitude to any problem that may occur, it was no problem at all to fix it. Can't recommend this hotel enough, the only downside for me our room (No.9) had an en suite bathroom with sloping roof so I couldn't stand up for a shower but that was simply remedied by sitting down - really no big deal.
The decor was sympathetic with the period of the house itself and very well appointed and clean
Breakfast menu was comprehensive and cooked on request and those who wish to have a full English won't be disappointed.
Parking again is no problem, when we arrived there were only three cars occupying spaces but it looks like there is enough spaces for every room. Walking down from the Hotel to Torquay's harbour will take less than 10 minutes.
A good place to stay

Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, and for your nice comments.
You're spot on with our approach, we try to make sure our guests have the best stay possible and try to be "can do" people whenever we can, whether its finding a restaurant booking at short notice, providing something extra in the rooms, or just cooking that breakfast just how you like it.
Regarding your room and the sloping ceiling, we have 4 rooms on our second floor which are original rooms built right into the roof line, meaning that they have sloping roofs in parts. The rooms are our two small doubles with ensuite shower, and two standard doubles with baths. The small doubles have standard shower cubicles, while the standard rooms with baths, simply have a bath, with a shower head attachment to the taps that you use in the seated position. We also have other Standard Doubles with Showers (cubicle style) on our other floors, and of course a range of luxury rooms. When booking on our website you can choose either bath or shower, though I believe we were pretty full the weekend you stayed so choice may have been limited when you booked.
Thanks for your helpful comment about the parking, which can be difficult in some hotels, but as you say we are fortunate to have spaces for every room, allowing people to simply leave their cars and stroll down to the harbour which is just 400m away. By the way, if you are planning to arrive early, we can usually accommodate extra cars, allowing you to park up and explore the town before checking in.
Once again, thanks for your review and hope to see you again before long.
