Reviewed 5 July 2010

Six friends and I headed to Torquay from London for the weekend, and I must say the hospitality of the place (which is minutes away from the shore) really added to the experience. The friendly owners Ian and Marie were wonderful and so helpful despite us pestering them every two minutes with incessant special requests! They really made us feel at home and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we need. I had also double parked my car and the owner offered to change its location himself to save me the trouble of doing it. Highly recommended and I would definitely go back there!

What a great pleasure to return to this excellent hotel, after missing last year through health reasons we could not wait to get back and see Ian and Marie oh and Sybil. The welcome you receive is very genuine, the rooms are brilliant and the food is excellent, freshly cooked, hot and plenty of it. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough the best recomendation we can give is to visit and find out. We shall most certainly return again and again.

We found the Southbank online while searching for a much needed short break. It was absolutely lovely.
We had a very friendly welcome from Ian, the owner. He showed us to our room which was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the hotel.
Ians wife Marie did all the cooking and that was just gorgeous. One evening I had a warm beef salad and it has to be the best hotel meal I have ever eaten.
Nothing was too much trouble for either of them.
We would recommend the Southbank to anyone and will definitely stay there again.
