As somebody of forty years of age its fair to say i have stayed at a fair few places in my life.... home & abroad. The best of them leave you feeling very happy, happy about your choice, happy that you got a good deal and feeling good that you met some lovely characters along the way.
The Richwood gave me, my partner & our 5 year old daughter all of this. Veronica and Saida were Lovely, they were warm people and made you feel so welcome instantly upon arriving at their venue that you felt you had known them for years. ( rare these days i feel )
The venue itself had so much character, the decor, the smell of the place as soon as you walk in was Amazing! due to the lebanese food that they cook in their "Bistro Bar" was instantly noticeable.
The beds were as good as our own, we had a great nights sleep, the shower was also Hot if needed, the facilities were endless......., parking, restaurant, bar, outdoor heated pool, ( warm ), heated outdoor Hot Tub, games room, TV with dvd player, its fair to say our daughter loved it.
I have to mention their " Bistro Bar ", where your hosts will cook you Lebanese food, ( Saida is lebanese ). Its " Mouth watering ", just check out their feedback thats all i'll say.
Yes you have lots of choice of places to stay when you go to the English Riviera in Torquay BUT consider this before you decide and commit to pay.... , do you want value for money, do you want to be made to feel special, do you want to leave a place wishing that you didn't have to go home..? If this is the case, ( and lets be honest we all want to feel like that don't we ), then this is one or those "few gems" out there that will give you this feeling.....THE RICHWOOD.
Yeah i know......We Loved It, Thank you Veronica & Saida hope to see you both again soon x x x
