“holiday with the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Another great relaxing week at the parks,the choice,size and quality of the breakfasts are superb,the proximity to central Torquay and the reasonably level walk into town is a real bonus,the rooms are of a size that can only be envied by hotels charging twice the price,and i have no hesitation in highly recommending Tim and Sarahs hotel to anyone looking for any length of stay in the Torbay area ... many thanks see ya next year

Clean, quiet and perfectly located near to all Torquay has to offer, and yet away from the main drag. Tim and Sarah are very considerate hosts that my wife and I will not hesitate to stay with when we return to the area. Very good value for money, the sea-front and train station are just down the road and an excellent pub/restaurant, The Ocean Drive, is just around the corner.

We have been going to The Parks for a number of years (sometimes twice in one year) and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Sarah and Tim always make us so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and so comfortable and very nicely furnished. There is a huge choice for breakfast, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, toast, fruit juices as well as a cooked breakfast, something for everyone's taste. So glad we found The Parks !

This is a first-rate hotel – superb, high-ceilinged Victorian rooms, in a building tucked away in a quiet spot by the park. Super service and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone, and shall certainly stay there again the next time I'm down in Torquay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

We were travelling down to Torquay from Bournemouth for a wedding and needed to book somewhere reasonably priced to stay which was near the sea.

Booking was easy and it was a lovely touch when Tim (the owner) called us to arrange collection of the keys as he was aware that we would be arriving later in the evening to check in. What was nice to see was the immense amount of thank you cards on the wall of the entrance hall, it was reassuring that he had received so much gratitude.

Everything was clearly explained and we when returned from an evening out on the first night, we met Tim in the lounge/bar area. He was really down to earth and welcoming. He gave us advice about the local area and it was nice to get to know him on a personal level.

Our room was on the top floor and was so cosy. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom looked as though it had not long been fitted, lovely décor and layout and just what we needed on our short weekend. I didn't even realise there was a train line running right behind our room until the final morning when I looked out the window! We did not hear it at all.

I liked the fact that breakfast was a little later (8.45-9.30) as it timed just right for a relaxing weekend and as we had long drive onwards to our football match, it was nice that we did not have to get up at the crack of dawn to get breakfast. The breakfast room was warm and the layout was simple and there was plenty of choice of fresh fruit, juices, yoghurts, cereals and the cooked breakfast was yummy. It was also nice to see lots of photos of Tim's family and fun times dotted around the room as it helped me get learn more about him and it was a good talking point as well.

The swimming pool looked nice but unfortunately we did not have the time to use it. :-(

I am now trying to find excuses to go down the Torquay so we can stay there again! It was like being welcomed into his own home rather than a hotel, which is what made our stay so special. Some of my family had stayed in the Best Western hotel down the road for much more money and I am just so glad we chose the Parks Hotel instead.
