“What a shabby disgrace!!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Torquay town centre has seen better days! What a disappointment for holidaymakers.half the shops are closed,and many charity shops.The pavements are filthy
And cracked and broken paving slabs.The only nice part is down by the harbour,quite picturesque,with palm trees and gardens.

“TACKY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We just called here for a day whilst holidaying elsewhere. I am so glad that we wern`t staying here, what a place,it was AWFUL .....GRUBBY....UNAPPEALING...... every where we looked there were "savoury characters" which left us feeling uncomfortable .the bins were over flowing with rubbish which was blowing over the grassed area, the toilets on the promenade were filthy......
If you want a fashion parade of Burberry and Lonsdale this is the place to be .
We will never return to this horrible place

“Enjoyable day out”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Lovely way to spend a nice summer day a gentle stroll right through shopping area stop for a nice cup of coffee in the many cafe's.Gentle stoll round the quay and then the park ,we were dissapointed to know the pavilion has closed down ,our family then drove to Brixam another lovely place to visit and stop for fish and chips.Then on to Payton a bit rough and ready but worth a visit not a lot there ,but there is a nice beach.
