I stayed at the Haytor Hotel with my husband and inlaws. The hotel was beautiful, spotless clean and very comfortable, Chris and Rob the owners were very attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble, they recommended restaurants and booked tables for us and chatted while serving us drinks from the hotel bar.

The bedrooms were beautifully furnished with crisp bedding, fluffy towels and divine smelling toiletries.

This really is a hotel that I would recommend to anyone without any hesitation,

A great modern contemporary hotel (guest house) in a good location, you can walk into the centre of torquay and the marina etc in 5 minutes down the hill but it is far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of the centre and is on a nice road with ample off street parking.

Our room and bathroom were small-ish, which was to be expected for a central location, and what is effectively a converted bedroom (with added en-suite) however the decor is modern and clean.

Breakfast is great, a nice open, very modern and clean room with friendly and efficient service and nice food!

Friendly staff also, polite and pleasant without being intrusive and eager to help and suggest things to do and the best way to enjoy your stay.

Great value for money, we would stay again.

Just back from a short break at Tthe Haytor and am already thinking about when I can book up to go again, that's how good it is. I stayed at the hotel for three nights with my eldest daughter at the end of July, and neither of us could fault the place or it's staff.

We travelled up by train and made our way from the station to the hotel by foot. The hotel is situated on the other side of the harbour from the station and is halfway up a hill. The hill looks worse than it is to be fair, but if you've lots of luggage I would recommend a taxi from the station. If you are travelling by car there is parking space for roughly ten cars at the entrance of the hotel.

We were greeted by Rob who showed us around and took our luggage up to our room. We stayed in a twin room on the first floor and had a view of the front of the hotel, but we experienced no noise at all at night even with the windows open. The bed is so comfortable you might not want to get up.There is a large floor to ceiling wardrobe for your clothes and a full length mirror too. There was a flat screen tv with all the usual digital channels, tea and coffee making facilities which are replenished every day, bottled water which is replenished when empty , a hairdryer and some lovely aromatherapy toiletries in the bathroom.

The hotel is tastefully decorated and is immaculately clean from the outside in. I think there is only one housekeeper there and she is a credit to the hotel. The garden is beautiful and is a real sun trap in the afternoon. There are tables and chairs outside where you can enjoy a drink in the afternoon while watching the resident ducks splash about in the garden pond.

Breakfast is served from 8.30 - 9.30 in the beautiful dining room which has lovely views out into the garden. I'm not sure of the name of the lady who served us each morning but she was incredibly efficient and professional in her apperance. The breakfast menu is adequate and was always well presented and tasty. We had the full english with toast every morning and we didn't need to eat anything until the evening.

There is also a bar/lounge area which you'll see on arrival and this never seems to get busy, so it's quite nice to enjoy a quite half hour or enjoy a nightcap before bed. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming without being intrusive and are all a credit to the hospitality industry. Can't wait to go again!!

I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay here at The Haytor and look forward to welcoming you again later in the year. The only minor thing I would like to mention to anyone reading this review is regarding the parking spaces, we actually have 15 parking spaces which works out to 1 space for every room in the Hotel.

This hotel ticked all the boxes in terms of style and comfort.. Breakfasts were always delightful as the dining room was light airy and staff cheerful. Our rooms were all well presented and clean. The Manager was chatty to all members of our party and very helpful with local information. All in all a lovely stay and I thoroughly recommend The Haytor to anyone.

My sister and I stayed for a weekend at this hotel, having stayed in recent years at several other hotels in Torquay that we would NOT go to again. We are so glad we found this one and will definitely go again. The decor was tasteful and fashionable. Fantastic organic breakfast - the bacon was not swimming in water like at some hotels! The owner was available for queries but not intrusive - we were able to come and go as we wished. Great location, very close to harbour and shops but still in a quiet residential street so, thank goodness, no noisy hen nights etc. The room and ensuite were modern and very clean and we were impressed by the bottles of water put in our room that were even replenished when we had drunk them. Excellent value for money. Quite large car park but we found out only when we got there that there was only one parking space per guest so this is worth noting if you are sharing a room with someone else who has driven there, as I was - in our case there was sufficient space by chance but it might be worth the hotel pointing this out to guests when they book.
