“First choice for a short break !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

Hotel Barton was very well situated. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival by Andrew and Helen. The room was great, very spacious, clean, tidy and modern with excellent en suite facilities. Breakfast was hot and plentiful with lots of choice to suit all needs. Would definately recommend this hotel and look forward to booking another short break next year.

The Hotel Barton is at a good location in Torquay, at walking distance from the harbour and its many restaurants, the beach as well as some nice walking trails. There is a big parking space nearby that the hotel arranges at no cost.

Our room was fairly big, with a decent size bathroom (shower/ toilet) and was exceptionally clean. The bed and mattress are very good quality, and it all looked very well kept. There is a small but nice front garden where one can sit on sunny days, and the wifi (which has good speed) reaches there as well. We didn't have the wifi in the room but could use the dining room during the day if needed.

Breakfast is very good, with fresh fruit, cereals, bread etc as well as scrambled eggs, full english breakfast etc available.

The owners are very friendly and helpful and create a very nice atmosphere.

There is a small supermarket nearby, just down the street, and a lot of pubs and restaurants further down to the harbour. We tried quite a few and have only good experiences but would certainly recommend the Indian restaurant nearby (on the same side of the street, there is another one opposite the street which we didn't try so cannot comment on)

I would certainly stay again at this hotel if in the region.

Room Tip: Seemed to me most rooms are more or less similar size

After struggling to find somewhere at quite short notice myself and the group of friends I was travelling with were worried that this last minute booking would backfire and be a real dump. But we were pleasantly surprised. In fact we couldn't have asked for better. It started with a really warm and friendly welcome and we were upgraded to an amazing room for no extra cost as it hadn't been booked that weekend. The bed was massive and very comfortable. The room was spacious and clean with brillliant attention to detail. The location could not have been better with only a few minutes walk to shops, pubs, the harbour etc. Overall we had an amazing stay due to the brilliant bed and breakfast and its location. We would all stay again and recommend it to everyone.
