“Customer focused hotel offering good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2012

We stayed at this hotel for three days last week. We opted to pay extra for a Gold Standard room and were allocated the Bridal Suite (room 4) complete with a 4 poster bed! It was worth the extra money, and for us, has enabled an ‘excellent’ rating for this hotel. The bedroom was a good size and had good views over the front gardens of the property and Torquay sea front in the distance. The bathroom too was a generous size and had been recently refurbished. It had dual aspect windows and you had a good view of the ‘Torquay Eye’ big wheel which is to be dismantled and moved to Hyde Park in November. The wi-fi signal seems to be confined to the lounge area in the hotel but the signal was just strong enough to reach our room above.
It was easy enough to park the car outside the property upon arrival. First impressions of the hotel are good as the receptionist was friendly and efficient. We were on a half board basis and always opted for the early dinner sittings (1830) which guaranteed a place in the outer ‘conservatory’ part of the dining room with lovely views - and it was still light outside. Get down early for breakfast and you will get one of these tables as well. The inner dining room is well decorated for this period property and has a spectacular ‘barrel’ ceiling. It is no hardship to have a table in this section either. There was plenty of food at breakfast and dinner. It was not quite cordon bleu standard but more than adequate. The serving staff were all very competent and friendly and there was no delay between courses. Chris is the ‘Bar and Residential Manager’ and he is an excellent ambassador for the hotel. Amongst other things, he ensures the smooth running of the restaurant and nothing was too much trouble for him. There is entertainment on at the hotel most evenings although we chose to visit the Babbacombe Theatre to see ‘Stardust’ which was an excellent variety show. Also check whether there is anything on at the ‘Little Theatre’ which is only five minutes walk up the road. This is well worth a visit. We just used public transport for our stay in Torquay. It’s an easy walk downhill to the bus stops beside Debenhams and there are plenty of buses to Brixham, Teignmouth, Exeter etc. The walk back up the hill to the hotel in the evening will keep you fit and work up an appetite. A very enjoyable three days and we recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get one of the 'Gold Standard' bedrooms on the first floor in the main bui...

We certainly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Pleasant staff and a pleasant room helped make it enjoyable. Would certainly come back. We stayed in a superior room which was adequate and had a nice view. Could just see the sea.The food was good in a very nice dining room. It was about 5 minutes or so, downhill, to the town. A very nice bar and lounge areas helped to create a relaxing atmosphere in well decorated surroundings. The prices for snacks and drinks, I felt, were very reasonable for a good hotel. The hotel offers free parking - some hotels charge £8 per day. We found that there was plenty of space to park. All in all good value for money.

We've just returned from 3 night stay and have to say it exceeded our expectations.We've visited the hotel on 3 occasions before the present owner took over. The difference is huge. Our gold rooms were well furnished,spotless, cosy and welcoming. Room 42 is huge with a queen size bed. Tastefully decorated in white/claret as I understand are all the rooms . Spotless bathroom with walk in shower and bath [ room 7]. We had the sun late afternoons but views only of drive and trees in rooms 7 and 42, Breakfasts were great with good choices on hot and cold. Dinners were fine but not wonderful. Always a good choice and hot. Entertainment ok for middle aged but young couples would definately go out . Situation perfect for exploring by car but very steep hill back if on foot. Will definately return

Room Tip: rooms 5 and 9 ahve lovely views

Stayed here for 5 nights and was very impressed with the hotel and its location. All staff were very friendly and the food was of a very high standard. The cleanliness throughout the hotel was very consistant and the decor was very modern and upto date. We will return to the hotel in the future and recommend this hotel to others.

As a returning guest for several years, this award says it all about the Lincombe Hall Hotel
The Lincombe has been refurbished to a very high standard and is complemented by a team of very friendly and committed staff. You are made to feel so welcome [ always a warm friendly reception from David, Suzy and Russell] and are looked after by staff that care and make this hotel the reason for returning coupled with the exceptional meals the Head Chef prepares.
The three night breaks are exceptional value for money and it is so nice that in the evenings there is live entertainment in the lounge. We will be returning in the spring and we have no hesitation recommending the Lincombe Hall Hotel.
