A superb hotel. The hotel was extremely clean and well presented. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. Tea/coffee making facilities were available and extra supplies were readily accessible. Soft fluffy towels were plentiful in the bathroom. Complimentary toiletries were at hand. The Full English Breakfast was tasty along with a varied choice of cereals, fresh fruit and yogurts. The bar meals were delicious with plenty of options obtainable.

My Father-in-law has mobility issues and could not make it down the stairs to the dining room to eat his meals. However, the owners very kindly arranged for us to have our meals in the bar area, which was on the same level as our bedrooms. The owners were very obliging and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel is in an excellent location. A 10 minute stroll (downhill) to the seafront/harbour area and theatre. A 15 minute stroll to the shops in the town centre.

I would highly recommend this hotel!

Just returned from a long weekend at Southbank, room was spotless with everything we needed and bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast was great, with plenty of choice, bar meal was superb, best steak I've had. Great location well situated for shops and sea front. Owners Ian and Marie were very friendly and sociable, we viewed a few of the rooms and all were decorated to a very high standard and very smart, clean and fresh looking.

Stayed at this hotel in the first week of August and the rooms were extremely clean and comfortable. All needs were catered for during our stay and nothing was to much trouble for the owners Ian and Marie who also gave good advice on local attractions and directions to them. Breakfasts were outstanding and the choice was second to none. Location of the hotel is perfect for the center of Torquay. Hotel is very welcoming and would recommend it to anyone who needed somewhere to stay in Torquay. The kids loved Sybil the dog who nearly got packed into the suitcase when we left. We had a great time and hope to be back there in the near future. Thankyou Ian and Marie for a lovely stay. All the best The Hallam family

We recently had a very nice stay at this pleasant and very reasonably priced hotel. First of all, the service was really good - the owners were extremely nice and helpful, they seemed genuinely interested in making our stay in Torquay nice.
The breakfast was very good and solid with a lot to choose between. It was never a problem to get soy milk or gluten free alternatives, which meant a lot to us and made our stay much easier.
The hotel itself is located very central for those who like Torquay.
Our room was very comfortable due to the price, but the bathroom we had does not belong in a four star hotel. The shower was especially annoying as it was so difficult to regulate.
The traffic noise from the street outside did not bother us that much, but some might be disturbed by that during the night.
However, we had a lovely experience because of the excellent service and welcoming atmosphere!

Room Tip: The traffic noise in the room facing the street can be quite disturbing during a warm July night.
