“Lots of Style and Very Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Bahamas Hotel is a lovely family run hotel with bags of style. We have been going to The Bahamas Hotel in Torquay since the current owners, John and Sonia, took over - about 7 years ago and always find a warm welcome there. Over the years we have also seen the hotel rooms gradually being refurbished to a boutique hotel standard. The room decor is lovely and relaxing, the beds are some of the most comfortable I've ever slept in and the fabulous breakfast keeps us going until dinner time and all at a really competitive rate. Why go anywhere else: if you're visiting Torquay stay at The Bahamas Hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Stayed at the Bahamas Hotel in May 2014 for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it as the owners were friendly and helpful,the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was tasty.
You are given two keys one for your room and one for the front door so when we came in at the early hours of the morning we could let ourselves in, but it would have been helpful if there was a security light to let us see where the keyhole was !
I would not hesitate staying here again on my next visit to Torquay as we were made very welcome and the location is within easy reach of town and the station.

My first visit to Torquay and to the Bahamas Hotel must say that John was most helpful in advising on places to go and also where to eat in Torquay, which helpedus massively. My husband, myself and parents stayed there and were very impressed with the rooms and the excellent choices at breakfast. John and Sonia are lovely, friendly welcoming hosts and we would definitely stay at the Bahamas again.

Friendly owners John & Sonia.

Stayed for 3 nights in July 2013. This was our 2nd visit and one of the reasons for coming back was the comfortable beds. Other reviewers have mentioned the decor on entry but this did not stop us from coming back as the hotel is very clean and the rooms have been nicely refurbished.

Lovely breakfasts and a couple of choices.

Not far from Torre Beach.

Room Tip: We were in room one on the ground foor. As there was an heatwave this was a good choice as the room...

This was our first stay in Torquay for 43 years. It was a fairly late booking for a 7 day holiday but it turned out to be a good choice as we would certainly stay at The Bahamas again if we return to the area. The owners were friendly and served up a great breakfast with plenty of choice. Comfortable, very clean room. It was ideally located, with the sea front only 5 minutes walk away. First impressions of the hotel outside and entrance are a bit shabby and dark and could do with some decorating to come up to the standard of the rooms.

Room Tip: Room 10 was the Premier Double Room overlooking the front and was an excellent choice for us with pl...

Having returned from short stay at the Bahamas hotel very nice friendly staff .The two rooms we had were very nice and clean much better than recent stay in a large upmarket well known hotel, breakfast was excellent , good location. The only down side are the first impressions of the hotel a bit shabby and dark could with decorating etc .
We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to anybody.

This was our first stay in Torquay, but will certainly stay at The Bahamas again if we return to the area. It was ideally located, with the sea front only 5 minutes walk away.
The owners were very friendly and attentive.
We only had a light breakfast each day but could not help overhearing the compliments given by the other residents.
We spent 3 nights here and the room was extremely comfortable, very clean and very quiet. Well done
