The Richwood gets a resounding thumbs up from us.
Approachable, friendly and helpful owners make this B&B hotel good value for money.
My son and I spent five days here in July 2014 and greatly appreciated our clean and spacious room (number 15) - plenty of case/storage room and opportunity to spread our belongings
What distinguishes is the number of free-of-charge amenities - a swimming pool/spa ouside and a relaxation room indoors (with pool table). We didn't make full use of them, the point being that we could or should have! Our holiday itinerary did not give us the opportunity to sample the delights of the in-house Lebanese restaurant - maybe next time! The hotel bar was pleasant. with a selection of favourably-priced drinks. An ideal location for befriending the other guests.
For those without transportation, The Richwood is literally a stone's throw away from Torre railway station and a ten minute walk away from the centre of Torquay, ideally situated to reach all of the attractions in the Torbay area.
The basic breakfast more than matched our needs. We could have upgraded it - at an acceptable price!
Wi-Fi access was uncomplicated and reliable - best I have experienced anywhere to date!
Non-smokers (like ourselves) need not be concerned by the establishment's smoker-friendly policy as at no point in our stay were our noses challenged in any way. There's room for everybody here!
