The Parks Guest Accommodation
Ranked #17 of 150 Torquay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 March 2013

My partner and I have just returned from a weekend at The Parks and will definitely be returning.
Tim and Sarah could not be more attentive and helpful and the hotel is very comfortable, especially the bar area with its huge leather sofas.
The hotel is well positioned, out of the main town but only a short walk away from busy shops bars and restaurants.

Stayed: March 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed here over Christmas with family.
Everything was of a high standard and breakfasts were out of this world.
Nice quiet place to stay, but walking distance from the town, also a bus stop 20 mtrs from the hotel.
The owners recommended good places to eat, and even gave us some vouchers for buy one get one free offers in the local Italian.

My husband and I, and various family members have been coming to The Parks for our annual Christmas stay for years. Tim and Sarah are welcoming and attentive hosts. The hotel is warm and comfortable and is nicely located in a quiet area but 2mins walk and you're on the seafront. I would always choose to stay here.

We rang the owners direct to talk through which room we wanted ( they are all very different )
We chose a 1st fool room with King size bed, settee and bath and shower.
Rooms were very well kept and very clean. The Guest house in also in a quiet area of town away from the main roads, but still easy access to town, bus stops and train station.
( our car didn't move over the 3 nights )
weather was kind to us and we were out most of the time, but did manage a night cap on our last night from the well stocked bar.
Breakfasts were excellant and we only needed to eat again at Tea time ( no lunch )
All in all, VERY GOOD and highly recommended, we will be staying again.

Room Tip: Direct call will always get the best deal !

My wife and I stayed a at the Parks for three days in December 2012 on our first visit to Torquay for many years. Tim was so welcoming and provided great information about the local area and restaurants. The Parks is an ideal place to stay in Torquay, it is extremely clean and tastefully decorated with easy access to the beach and town just a short walk away. The full English breakfast was delicious, made fresh with a choice of cereal, toast and juices to compliment. If we choose to visit Torquay in the future, which I am sure we will, my first call will be to Tim. A highly recommended accommodation from someone who is very well travelled.

We spent a weekend at The Parks at the end of October. Myself, my wife and 13 year old son. Family room was lovely, nicely decorated, cosy and an ensuite. Most important thing to our son was the flat screen tv! Breakfasts were top quality, more than enough choice. Tim and Sarah are wonderful hosts, welcoming and very friendly. Enjoyed spending our evenings with them in the bar. A lovely weekend away and will be sure to return sometime next year.
