“Lovely weekend away”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

I had a fantastic stay at the Parks. This was my second time visiting here and it was even better than remembered. Tim and Sarah are incredibly welcoming and happy to help with any request. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the accommodation as a whole has such a warm homely feel to it. Fantastic location and a great stay, thank you!

Had a lovely weekend in the Parks Hotel. The owners were extremely helpful and were very helpful when asked questions about the area. Perfect location for the beach. Nothing was too much trouble. Would certainly recommend. Thank you Tim and Sarah.

We visited the Parks for three nights, the duration of our stay was warm and enjoyable. We were greeted in a friendly manner, it was almost as if we already knew Tim and Sarah. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Although we did not book to have breakfast, we had it in on the last morning and it was not a problem at all, everything was cooked well and served in a very timely manner. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend the Parks to anyone, and will definitely return to stay myself. Faultless hosts, beautifully kept accommodation and worth every penny! Erin and Shane.

Just spent three days at The Parks, my birthday celebration......Brilliant! Tim and Sarah are so friendly and welcoming, we took the hotel over, about 30 of us altogether attended the party. Tim and Sarah arranged Chinese and Indian food for the evening, and also did a quiz, which everyone really enjoyed. As usual the breakfast at The Parks is a bit special....full English on Saturday and a buffet on Sunday, everyone was very pleased with the food and the accommodation.....first class. Some of the guests had not stayed at The Parks before, but they are already talking about staying for another a weekend next year. Well done Tim and Sarah, thank you so much for an unforgettable weekend, Trevor and Sue.

Room Tip: Go and enjoy yourselves.......you'll love it!

Having never been to Torquay before we didn't know what to expect, but on arrival at the guest house, we were very pleasantly surprised to find a more or less hidden away lovely house, we stayed in the top bedroom which we thought was very cosy and comfortable. The seafront was only about 15 minutes away as was the shops, would love to go back next year to see it in the summer. We all had a lovely relaxing weekend. most definitely go back as Tim and Sarah made us very welcome

Room Tip: Good view from the top

Our second visit this year, excellent hosts, super spacious rooms and brilliant breakfasts .... what more would you want. We visited with family and friends for a autumn break. 5 minute walk from the rail station, 10 minute walk to the sea front. Great recommendation for local italian restaurant. We are looking forward to our next visit already!
