“Very welcoming place”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

I enjoyed my stay at The Crimdon Dene very much. It is in a very good location, but more importantly it is managed by Margaret and John who are a lovely couple, very down to earth and friendly. I noticed how much people must enjoy staying here as they had some guests who were obviously regulars and keep returning there.

The cooked breakfasts were really nice and the choice of fruits, cereals and yoghurts etc were way beyond what you would normally expect in a guest house. John will always come out of the kitchen into the breakfast room and greet everyone in the morning(in colourful chef's attire :-).

The hotel is very clean and well kept too. For the price of £30 a night for a single room you just can't go wrong. I'd much rather stay here and receive the hospitality you get than in some large corporate hotel were your just a room number. There is also room for a few cars to park on the forecourt as well.

Thanks for the lovely stay.

The breakfasts were delicious and margaret and John put so much effort into making your stay a great one. I enjoyed the stay very much. The location was great as there were lots of nice restaurants and a fair and also a firework display when we went.

Every year,I take my mother and sister to Torquay,and especially, to stay at Crimdon Dene.I live outside the UK and it is extremely important that we have a great time as I have a limited time that I can be back in England.We would never return time and again if this hotel was not first class in every aspect.My mother loves "the breakfast" and my sister and I enjoy it all especially the yoghurts and marmalade.The rooms are comfortable,clean and always well maintained with decor and furnishings up dated.Margaret and John are the perfect hosts and would do anything above and beyond normal expectations to make their guests' stays enjoyable.This is a wonderful place to stay.We plan on returning next year for our twelfth visit.

For the sixth time in six years I stayed at Crimdon Dene. Margaret & John are excellent, the breakasts are a real treat and the atmosphere can't be more welcoming. Thanks! I'm already looking forward to be back next year.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Falkland Road are less quiet.

Once again I wish to thank Margaret & John for their suberb hospitality while once again using there wonderful hotel for my stay in Torquay, I am never dissapointed, there breakfasts are second to none you can eat as much as you like the fresh fruit selection and john,s homemade yoghurts are fantastic everthing about breakfast is first class. Margaret & Johns eye to detail and little personal touches, Example Thank you card and goodbye chocolate on leaving are a special touch. The whole of of the hotel is spotlessly clean and I would not stay anywhere else in Torquay. Margaret ( Leyland)

Firstly, I would like to respond to Fandango's review of his stay at the Crimdon Dene. For goodness sake you were meant to be on holiday, not spending the day in your room reading the notices and eating pot noodles! You could have started the day with a fantastic breakfast, starting with a choice of about 14 cereals. Follow that with a bowl of grapefruit,mandarin oranges, prunes or pineapples or maybe you would prefer fresh melon, raspberries,strawberries, kiwi's, blueberries, green or black grapes. You will then be served with a hot freshly cooked breakfast of best back bacon, sausage, beans, mushrooms, tomato, sauteed potatoes and egg cooked to your liking.(poached, boiled, sunny side up, flipped over or scrambled.) Margaret will ask you if you would like white, brown or a mix of toast. There are plenty of John's homemade jams and marmalade's to accompany it. Also, you must try the homemade yoghourts Mmmmm!
Tea and coffee is endless. All this will set anyone up for the day.
By the way Mr Fandango, where did you look for something to eat? Torquay has lots of eating establishments from budget to Michelin star! The humble Weatherspoons cater for everyone including solo people like yourself. Why sit in a bedroom on your own with a plastic tablecloth?
Margaret and John's bedrooms are flowery but it suits the age of the premises. More importantly, everywhere is spotlessly clean and nothing has been overlooked. There is an ironing board in the room, hand wash, shower gel, hairdryer, radio alarm, shoe cleaner, tissues, cotton wool balls and buds, yummy biscuits, drinking chocolate, tea, coffee and not forgetting the bottles of water on arrival.
If you want a drink from the bar in the evening, John will oblige and his prices are competitive to anywhere in the whole of Torquay.
Anyway, we have just had our fourth visit with John and Margaret ( June 2nd - June 8th ) and we would recommend them to anyone. I'm just glad I didn't have to look at Mr F's miserable face over breakfast, as the holidaymakers who were there at the same time as us were lovely people and some of them were on their own too. Thanks again. X

Room Tip: Room 2 is a lovely large ground floor room.
