Couldnt fault a thing - hotel location was great - room was immaculate, breakfast was excellent and plentiful - nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. Would definitely return and would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Everything you need in room, beds very comfortable and very good shower! The whole place was very clean. Staff extremely welcoming and very helpful with regards to local area, John suggested food places and nice local places we could visit and gave us a map which was very useful to us! Breakfast was really nice! Plenty of parking space also! Only down the road from the seafront probably a 10 minute walk, we are lazy and drove though! If we come back to Torquay we both said we'd come back to the Bahamas and I would reccommend it!

We had a wonderful holiday experience with John and Sonia. They were both so welcoming and hospitable at all times. They make you feel like family. We had a beautiful room overlooking the front of the building. Although it faces the road, it was very quiet. Everywhere you went in this hotel, it was spotless. My husband and I enjoyed our evening chats with John in the bar. They both showed a genuine interest in the people who stayed with them. The breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. We would both highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to visit Torquay. It was close to everything and there are lots to see and do in a very short distance from them. We didn't want to leave. It was the last hotel before returning to Canada the next day. Keep up the great work you two and we look forward to spending time in your lovely home again some day! The McGuires'.

I travelled to Torquay with a friend for a Christening nearby but made a weekend of the trip. The strength of the reviews was what made us choose the Bahamas. Those reviews were spot on.

Let's be honest - from the price you pay you clearly aren't going to be getting the Ritz but the room was clean, modern and comfortable. I stay in hotels all over the country with work and this room was superior to many that cost twice as much. Some of the communal parts of the hotel were slightly dated but what matters to me most is the private space and that was immaculate.

What really makes The Bahamas is John and Sonia - the owners. Genuinely friendly helpful and they make you feel so welcome. We drank in the hotel bar for a couple of hours on both nights we were there and had a great time chatting to John, he could easily just be your mate sat with you - he appears to be able to hold a conversation with anyone on any subject!

If and when I need to return to this part of the world I will choose The Bahamas without a second thought and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone else.

Our recent stay at "The Bahamas Hotel" was excellent. The hotel was clean & the room had everything we needed. The cooked breakfast was lovely & plenty of it! The bar was available in the evening.

The location is perfect for either going to the beach (only 5 min walk), visiting the town or exploring all the local places of interest.

John & Sonia were so friendly & gave some great suggestions of places to visit.

We definitely recommend this hotel.
