Reviewed 30 June 2013

We held our wedding here on the 22nd June 2013.

What can i say apart from WOW!
After a couple of small hiccups at the beginning of our booking i had my doubts about how well it would all go on the day.....How wrong I was!!!

The day couldn't of been more perfect! Kimberley was a absolute star, She took charge of all our guests as soon as they arrived and directed them to where they needed to be and kept them informed as to what was happening / where they should be.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't in our favor but we did manage to get some lovely shots out in their lovely garden!

The ballroom where we held our reception looked amazing! The staff at the hotel had put out all the decorations we had left with them and everything looked perfect!

We went for a sit down meal which came out on time, the waiters/waitresses knew exactly who was having what without having to ask. (We had over 60 guests!) and no-one had to wait around for theirs.
The food was delicious, All our guests commented on how nice their meal was & also the evening buffet too.

All the equipment for the microphone for our speeches was all set up and ready to go & while this was happening staff whisked our cake off and cut it all up for guests to have after - again no-one was left waiting for theirs it all seemed to be brought out in one go.

They turned our room around really quick already for the evening do.Everything seemed to run like clockwork without a hitch. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Our bridal suite which was included in our booking was really nice too - Four poster bed with ensuite. It also had lovely views over the gardens. This ended up being a god send for us just to escape for a little bit to chillout and take it all in. Plus pretty handy not having to travel after the reception was all over.

Breakfast was once again very good. Helped ourselves to a selection of cereals, fruit, toast & juices then ordered a full english breakfast.

Overall we couldn't of asked for a more perfect day! Thankyou to Kim & all the staff at the hotel!!

weve just had a weeks holiday,staying @ the bancourt hotel torquay,the food was excellent,the waitresses were speedy,polite& helpful.The hotel itself is not star rated,even though the decor is a bit dated, the cleanliness & upkeep was generally good.The only downside to it was, its not on a bus route & unless you have transport of some kind or a good set of legs,its a tidy walk to the town

Booked up the Hotel online for £30.00 - I just needed a place to stay after what was going to be a glass or 2 in Torquay. Walked back to the hotel and there was a Party going on. got to my room and did not hear anything of it.

Slept well and up (a little late) - room was a single. Clean, Shower was good. No issues just did what it said.

Staff were great and helpful.

Used the hotel as a base for the game yesterday. Very friendly helpful staff including the night porter who dealt firmly with a couple of well drunk lads who arrived at reception! Rooms decent & clean. Great breakfast provided even though we didn't book one! All for £31 for B&B great value - recommended budget hotel!

I stayed here for one night with a small party to visit Plainmoor for a football match. The staff are friendly, with a 24 hour service on reception. Our room was better than you would have expected - which was a bargain at £31 each for B&B. I did not notice if the pool was open or closed - but I didn't care! This was a place to rest my head, at a very reasonable cost. I cannot understand why other reviewers would post negative reports - unless they had paid a lot more.

The room was filthy, full of mould, there were spider webs everywhere, there was chewing gum stuck in the whole in the ceiling, and the bed was so extremely uncomfortable I was rolling down off of it.... The only good thing was the pool.... Oh no, wait, IT WAS CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE, of course without any prior notification!!! Very disappointed. Not worth its price.

We are just back from a great weekend in Torquay staying at the Bancourt hotel. There were 56 of us in the group - mixture of adults and teenagers. The hotel was a great base and Kimberley and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had to make last minute changes to our programme and the staff were able to accommodate this by providing us with an early breakfast. The hotel was clean and tidy. Bar prices reasonable. Food good. Only downside was that the pool was closed as it had a leak.
