“The Parks was very friendly and accommodating.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

The Parks was very friendly and accommodating. Went above what was expected to ensure we were comfortable. Quiet location a few minutes walk from the train station and sea front. Rooms were clean and well furnished. Would definately stay there again.

This was the second time that we had stayed at The Parks and once again we found the room and breakfasts excellent and very good value for money. Tim and Sarah are first class hosts and were very accommodating when we asked if we could stay longer. We would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you once again and hope to see you soon.

Booked hotel for a family break. First time we had been together for some years, there were 9 of us so we took over most of the rooms. Found the accomodation clean and tidy. Central location for a tour of the west. Sarah and Tim very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was good and no request denied. Would consider booking again if ever in the area.
Met family from our town who had stayed before, recomendation in it's self.

I found this b&b through laterooms and it was the best find ever, the rooms were really nice very clean and comfortable. the hotel is five min walk from the seafront and about 10 mins from the shops and restaraunts. We had the family room after a little shuffling was done to accommodate us (me, partner and toddler). Tim and sarah were very freindly and very very helpful. the breakfast was the best breakfast we've had at and b&b or hotel. i am a very fussy eater and i didnt have any complaints about the food i even ate the mushrooms which i am very fussy on how i like them. we decided to stay another night but the parks was fully booked, we ended up in another b&b which was miles away from the seafront tiny rooms and cant say i ate much of the breckfast except a piece of toast and a sausage. This made us appreciate the quality of the rooms and service at the parks guest accommodation. we will definetley be returning to here and reccommending it to all our friends and family. So if you are considering booking here dont hesitate book asap as IT IS THE BEST. Emma xoxo

Booked direct with Tim the owner rather than through other sites, would recommend that
you should do this. We had travelled through terrible weather conditions, so it was nice on
arrival to be greeted by such a nice host who even carried our suitcase up to the room for
us ( which incidentally was extremely heavy). After which Tim gave us an extensive tour of
our room. As a bonus when we asked where we should dine out locally, Tim gave us a
voucher for free drinks with our meal at the Ocean Drive Diner. As time went on the weather
was horrendous so we decided to approach Tim as to where we would stand financially if we
cut our stay short, once again Tim was very obliging and because we had booked direct with
him came to an agreement that suited us both. Would definitely return to this B & B as you
would not find a better host.

This was our third visit to The Parks, and we were not at all disappointed with any aspect of it. Torquay was gloriously sunny the whole week we were there which was a major bonus. We had the very comfortable family room: myself, my husband and our 4yr old daughter Charlotte and really could not have asked for more! Tim and Sarah, the proprieters, were as charming, friendly and helpful as ever. Excellent breakfast with lots of variety, great service and good company. Took the oppurtunity to make use of the lovely secluded garden and the refreshing (warm) outdoor pool. Also took more than an oppurtunity of the bar! Would well recommend a visit. Excellent value for money! Will be back there again in the future.
