“What a superb find”
Reviewed 28 September 2009

An excellent hotel good location in a quiet loction within easy walking distance of all Torquay's amenities. Tim and Sarah were excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Excellent breakfasts. Our room was spotless and serviced daily. Free parking on site and the pool is still heated in September. Cannot fault this hotel.

I found the hotel using standard internet searches of hotels in Torquay, then used Trip advisor to see what others thought - At that time there were 11 excellents for the Parks - Were these real reports from geniune families?? .... Oh yes they were and everyone of them spoke the truth so I can only echo other reviews.
From the moment we spoke to Sarah and Tim we knew the accomodation would be what we wanted.
From arriving early, both Tim and Sarah were extremely accomodating. The breakfasts were excellent and having booked for Evening Meal as well, we were extremely well catered for - Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them.
Our family stayed in rooms 1,4 and 7 - All rooms were extremely clean and kept that way throughout our stay. Room 1 had a 4 poster bed (room enough to put a cot in as well), Room 4 had a huuge bed, 2 seater sofa and shower and room 7, a double, 2 single beds and a bath. .. All rooms had digital freeview and tea / coffee making facilities (and biscuits :). Tim also keeps a well stocked Bar at extremely reasonable prices - recommend the 'Tangle Foot'
Location - approx 5 minute walk to the beachfront.

Thanks very much Tim and Sarah - Paul, Julie, Jess, Andy and Jean

Found The Parks on the internet and booked a last minute week's holiday. From the moment i spoke to Tim & Sarah to confirm availability i knew it was going to be good!
Nothing but praise from our family for how well Tim & Sarah run their guest house.
Lovely quiet location, yet only 10 minute's level walk to sea front and marina.
Excellent full english breakfast started the day off perfectly. Kids loved the heated swimming pool. We look forward to our next stay at The Parks!
Best Wishes from Keith, Lydia, Natalie & Nathan.

Fantastic stay here, would definately recommend. We stayed in Bedroom 1, with a pine 4 poster and sofa. DVD/TV/ipod dock were very good! Very comfy bed, lovely linen and cushions. Very hospitable/friendly owners, who were there when you needed them for directions/local advice etc. Breakfast was lovely, great selection of yoghurts, cereals, juices, bread, cooked items. Big pots of tea served! They can also provide evening meals.
Great tea/coffee making facilities provided in the room (could make tea in flasks for picnics!). Quiet surroundings but also close to the seafront and town centre. (Best to reach the town from along the seafront as it is flat all the way!) Great value for money too (the breakfasts set me up for the whole day!). Close to lots of attractions i.e Cockington Village (lovely rolling lawns and pretty cottages) and Kents Caverns. Would visit again!
