“lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

A lovely hotel with great facilities and very friendly service. Very nice décor throughout, very clean, lovely gardens and pool area and good location for town and local attractions. Can see why it wins awards.

Have just returned from a holiday at the Lincombe Hall hotel where we spent 3 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our whole experience was fantastic from the well maintained hotel and grounds to the delicious food served. The main thing I would really like to commend the hotel for are the friendly and professional staff - there was always someone on hand to look after us and nothing was a problem. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to anyone planning to stay in Torquay.

Great hotel, great location, nice food, helpful and polite staff!
The weather being nice made all of the difference as we got to use the heated outdoor pool in hot sunny weather. There is a short walk to the harbour from the hotel; nice walking down the hill, however if you don't fancy the struggle back up then the taxi ride will only cost about £4.
Room was nice and spacious. Kitchen staff were really accommodating to our child's food requirements, which really helped.
Entertainment included variety of singers/musicians. Every night a different film was being screened in the tv room.
Overall, a great stay making our first time in Torquay a pleasurable one!

We have just returned from a fabulous 4 night break at Lincombe Hall, the hotel far exceeds it's 3 star rating. It's spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard. The sunny terrace & gardens are perfect for relaxing and having a drink. The temperature of the heated outdoor pool was perfect and made such a treat to have a swim after a full day enjoying all that Torquay has to offer. Great jacuzzi too. Pool towels are provided free of charge. Breakfast was very good. Free wifi throughout the hotel which enabled me to share my photos with friends and family during my stay.
We had a Gold room that was large and very comfortable with nice views over the garden/pool and even the sea in the distance. The weather was fantastic during our stay with temperatures in the mid twenties and the only downside to this was the room was extremely hot even with the window wide open. A tower fan was provided but made very little impact
on cooling the room down. This was our only negative and was very much out weighed with all the good things about the Lincombe.
The hotel is only 10 mins walk from the seafront, all downhill and although we walked back most times we did have a taxi back a couple of times which was well worth the £3.50.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely return to the Lincombe on our next trip to Torquay.
Torquay itself has lots to offer and does great ferry trips over to Brixham and Paignton just for £1. We even saw Dolphins on our return trip from Brixham so that was a real bonus. Fab weather, fab hotel, fab time.

The Lincombe is a lovely sea side hotel ideally situated for exploring Torquay and surrounding district.It is clear the hotel has had a lot of money spent on it and it provides very comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable price.It is very near the town centre and it is within easy walking distance of a number of very good trip advisor recommended restaurants.
Although the walk to the restaurants is easy the walk back is very steep and some may prefer to take a taxi for the return trip.
Staff were very helpful ( particularly reception staff who arranged an extra room heater when the temperature suddenly dropped one evening after the hotel central heating had been turned off )
If you are headed to Torquay you won't go wrong with the Lincombe.

We stayed for one night, and had booked the compact double, they upgraded us for free because they were quite quiet that night. The staff were all wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and they genuinely cared about you enjoying your stay, and it's worth making the most out of their local knowledge. They were also very good at catering for my husbands allergies and strict dietary requirements and are happy to put lactose free milk etc in the fridge for you for breakfast if you bring your own, which when you have to be careful with allergies is a godsend!
The free parking on site was a bonus, the room overlooking the garden and you could see the sea in the distance was lovely! The rooms are very comfortable, the bathroom is lovely and the soaps and moisturiser etc are luxurious. I would recommend this hotel to everyone! We didn't have time to try out the pools but I will make sure to when we return, which we will!

we stayed here for a 2 night break the care and attention by staff started before we even arrived when we had to ammend our original booking dates this was done quickly and with no fuss whatsoever, on arrival we were greeted by reception staff who asked after my daughter who was taken ill and the reason we could not go on our original date a lovely touch .we had booked a standard room but after seeing it we both agreed that there was nothing standard about it ample space tastefully decorated, and a lovely view down to torquay harbour .the room itself was also spotlessly clean with a well stocked beverage tray and little extras like a hair dryer and heated towel rail. the restaurant offered a buffet breakfast which was superb the choice was plentiful, nice hot plates and very friendly attentive staff all food was of a extremely high standard with local produce used very tasty especially the sausages the hotel is rated 3 star but we have stayed in 4 star hotels in torquay no where near lincombe hall standard cant wait to return .
