“Good food and entertainment”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Went as part of coach holiday. Enjoyed it and thought it was good value for money. Decent location. Would go back to Rainbow Hotel. The large club in the hotel had some very good variety acts for your entertainment.

This was a 4 night Turkey and Tinsel break booked direct with the hotel and great value for money. Yes, the rooms are dated but they were clean and warm and the water was always hot so no complaints. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the tennis courts and it was very quiet. Ample food, always hot and the kitchen staff derve a pat on the back for the varied menu. Entertainment okay and the pool is recommended. So many places worth a visit - Brixham, Dartmouth etc, we never get tired of Torbay and will definitely be back to the Rainbow. Easy car parking and buses a short walk away, thank you The Rainbow for a very enjoyable break.

Room Tip: Requested a quiet room high up and this is exactly what we got.

Stayed at the rainbow hotel for turkey and tinsel weekend. Overall the experience was average.
Rooms were very dated but spacious (get what you pay for). We stayed on the 4th floor with no lift access for disabled members of our party, which made things very difficult.
Entertainment was average and very very disappointed that as it was a turkey and tinsel weekend, which is expected to have New Year's Eve on the last evening, we were told there will not be any entertainment. When we asked for management to ask why, we were told there was no management around on a Sunday and that's probably why we had no entertainment which was very frustrating. On the morning of our departure help was requested from staff to take bags out to the coach as they were disabled but was told they would help bring them to the reception but would not help us to the coach.
However, I would like to say how amazing the kitchen staff were, they were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Food was exseptional. Unfortunately I would not stay again off turkey and tinsel. there was nothing festive about the experience apart from the decorations. It was lucky that I was in excellent company.
Best part of the hotel were the kitchen staff.

We recently stayed here on a 4 night break, self drive, through Travelstyle holidays, we'd originally been booked for another hotel which had sea views but the booking was changed because of problems at the original hotel, we are so pleased we were offered this instead, the staff were extremely friendly & couldn't have done more for the guests, the food was brilliant, a lovely carvery each night or you could choose the meat, fish or veggy special each night, the breakfasts were also llovely, being self service you could help yourself to as much or as little as you liked, the only extra thing we'd have liked is mushrooms but that's just us being greedy.......
Our double room, on the 4th floor, (one floor above reception, dining room, lounge etc) was large enough, the bathroom a good size, with a bath, not just a shower, the water was hot & the room nice & warm, if you needed new towels you just needed to leave the used ones in the bath & the cleaner would change them, the room was dated but clean, with a supervisor coming round checking the cleaning, there is a lift with a few steps up to the floor, although we tended to use the main stairs, as the lift is limited to no more than 3 people at a time
The hotel is just a short walk from the beach and the town centre, we also drove in to Paignton, Brixham & the unmissable Trago Mills shopping complex near Newton Abbot,
all in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel, we would definitely go there again

Room Tip: The rooms at the back look over gardens, much nicer than overlooking the busy road at the front

We only went because the Sneakers were playing all weekend so did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were dated but quite big and well equipped and the food was excellent with plenty of choice.There was no scammbled egg for breakfast but were told just to ask at the counter and it was got for us. Staff were all friendly and helpful especially in the restaurant. The swimming pool was lovely, warm and clean and not too deep. There was plenty of room for the entertainment and the acoustics were great. It felt like one big party every night. Will definitely go again. Dave & Sue & friends.

Room Tip: Twin rooms are larger
