We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Sept 08 with our 2 young children. Initially I was wary as had read some disappointing reviews but was really pleased when we arrived. We arrived before check in time and managed to get a parking space in the small car park (limited parking), the staff were friendly and helpful and nothing seemed too much effort. We were easily able to walk into the town centre and sea front even with a toddler in a pushchair and a 3 year old. Our room was spacious (double bed, single bed plus travel cot) and it was one of the newly re-furbished rooms with a balcony overlooking Torbay. The room was clean and comfortable although being up 3 flights of stairs wasn't ideal!! There was a lift but this was broken on one occasion which was inconvenient with 2 young children. We only used the restaurant for breakfast. This was fine and the staff were friendly, only comment here would be the use of shot glasses for the orange juice!!
We did use the swimming pool although we did find it quite cold - the kids didn't seem to mind though!
All in all a good value hotel. The only drawbacks were that not all rooms have been refurbished to such a high standard, the pool needs to be slightly warmer and there is limited parking but it's proximity to the beach and town make the Richmond a great choice when visiting Torquay
