“Great welcome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2012

Stayed for a couple of nights. The welcome we received was great. The room, although a little tired decor wise, was very comfortable, and had everything we needed. Breakfast was perfect - served with a smile! Overall great, and when we are heading back to Torquay we will be booking again. Thanks.

Just came back from spending 5 days at The Park's, such a friendly family. Tim the owner could not do enough for you. It has an outdoor pool, which we all loved, very relaxing. Breakfast was great, alot of choice, also situated min's from the beach.

Room Tip: Higher floor room's get very warm in the summer night's

My husband, son (12) and I spent a weekend at The Parks at the end of July. Our room was great, a double and a single bed, along with a settee. Large ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. Breakfast was delicious and put a very large smile on our sons face each morning! We arrived on a very hot sunny afternoon so the pool was a very welcome sight. Easy walk into Torquay. Tim and Sarah were brilliant hosts, very friendly and helpful. Evenings spent in the lounge were lovely. We enjoyed our stay so much that I have contacted Tim today to book again for later this year.

I have just spent 5 nights B & B at the Parks with my daughter and grandchild, aged 5. We had a large airy 3 single bedded room, with a large en suite proper bathroom with piping hot water. TV with all channels, cotton Duvet & Pillowcase coverings on comfy beds with bedside lamps, hairdryer, and the use of ironing facilities. We had a lovely proper English breakfast, each morning, after enjoying 'starters' of juices, cereals, fruits, yoghurts and toast and marmalades.
The Parks is a friendly, easy going and well run establishment where the owners Tim and his wife, Sarah, are most helpful and kind. The Parks was once an Edwardian villa and it retains a charming style that immediately made us guests feel at ease. Its a home from home place to stay and all the more valuable for this. On a sunny day we used the warm, small pool, and as the Parks is about 500 meters from Torre sands, the sea and the promenade, there is only praise to give. Excellent and highly recommended. We will be going back again.

Room Tip: Talk your accommodation requirements with Tim and he will be able to give you all the information yo...

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Parks for 5 nights at the end of July. The room we stayed in was on the ground floor, which was really nice. The decor, the furnishing, everything was tip top. The pool is a fantastic addition, the water is warm and the pool area is a great place to chill and catch the sun. Tim, was probably the most helpful person I've met, he made us feel really welcome and went out of his way to make our stay as good as possible. We also had the benefit of nice weather to top it all off. All in all, it's in a great location, ample parking which is rare! The hosts were brilliant, the room was spot on and the pool was a great addition. Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back!
