We have just returned from a 5 day holiday at the Tor Park hotel, Torquay and would like to thank the staff for their efficient service. They were efficient and friendly. The food we received, although basic, was plentiful and well presented (empty plates every evening). At breakfast there was ample choice of cereal, porridge available and a full English breakfast cooked perfectly was on offer. The evening entertainment was good and passed the nights away in a relaxed way. Our bedroom was perfectly clean although the shower could be improved by having a screen instead of a curtain but I'm sure when the refurbishment of the hotel is complete that this will become a really comfortable and welcoming hotel to stay in. All the linen for bed and bathroom were fresh and clean as was the overall appearance of the hotel. Thanks again for a lovely relaxing holiday. ps nearly forgot to say that the bar staff were really friendly and efficient too.

Room Tip: Room 15 was at the back of the hotel. Had a double bed and a single bed. Would be ideal for family w...

Dear Mollie61

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review of your recent stay at the Tor Park Hotel.
I really appreciate you mentioning how much you enjoyed your stay and how it was made so much better by our wonderful staff. I take your point about the shower curtain and it is certainly something that we are looking to replace with a shower door. I look forward to you returning in the not too distant future

We returned home yesterday from this hotel. We had a lovely time. the food was excellant, plenty of choice. Staff could not do enough for you, if you wanted something they would do their level best to get it. We travelled with Shearings it was great our driver Stephen was the best, This was my first Shearings Holiday it will not be my last, we will definately be back to the Tor Park Hotel.

Room Tip: lower ground floor is a bit dark

We self drove to the Tor Park hotel on our all inclusive break. We were met at reception by Alex who helped us to our room with our luggage. We were early but there was no issue with checking in earlier than the allotted time. We found the breakfasts and evening meals of good quality and they were served by our wonderful waitress Sharon who although having to cover lots of tables was fast, helpful and efficient. We joined in with the bingo and entertainment each evening although it is definitely aimed at the older audience. This didn't spoil our break and the free drinks vouchers definitely helped. The bar ladies Fran and Trina were amazing and were wonderful with our son. Sam loved them and wanted to stay forever. He says thank you for the jar of sweets. I suppose the only gripe we had was with the mattress on our double bed, which was ready to be condemned. It was dreadfully uncomfortable. Considering the price we paid we thought this hotel was excellent value for money and we will definitely be returning. I have to stress it is the excellent staff that make this hotel.

Just returned from a Shearings holiday (friday 28th feb). Excellent valuue. Had a wonderfull time, staff first class. Meals varied and good standard. Bedroom clean and comfortable. Easy to get to harbour or town, downhill. Bus every ten minutes. Note no floods, Torquay and areas surrounding Torbay open for business. Would happily return there.

Room Tip: Corner room very light.

Had a very pleasant stay at the Tor Park Hotel Staff all very friendly and helpful Entertainment good on all four nights, parts of hotel could do with updating our room 41 was on top floor a little on the small side and could hear next door but this is standard at Shearings hotels we have found, being able to get the free WiFi in room was a bonus should only be available in public areas. Dining room was in three different areas our waitress Nicole was new and was a bit nervous but always pleasant and we were never kept waiting food was OK toast was just one slice each and usually burnt the breakfast was never very hot although the plates scorching ? The Hotel lounge was very small with only a few hard vinyl sofas that left you feeling a bit hot after sitting on them for a short while in the entertainment room the chairs we extremely uncomfortable hard and upright. All in all not a bad experience would stay again. But prefer Torbay hotel as nearer to high street and harbour

Dear esherapril

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Tor Park Hotel. I am very pleased to note that you found the holiday to be good value for money (and i am amazed you were able to receive the wifi in your room!). I will investigate your issue with the toast as i find it unacceptable that this should have been served. Our Hotel is not situated in the town centre (as the Torbay is) but on the good side it is in a quieter area and is well served by frequent local buses

Well we have just got back on Friday21st Feb from a Monday 2 Friday holiday with shearing it was our first of this kind we would go back for another break to this hotel good for 2 star it dose wot it says on the tin food fine kippers full English ect yes you get your own cereal and apple or orange juice prunes or grapefruit I know if you could not do that the staff would more than go that extra mile too help you
My wife had 2 lovely poached eggs on toast and ham on brown toast done 2 a tee double kippers for me and porridge as well
Meals on a night were good home cooking standard and 2 say there was over 100 covers to feed the staff work there socks off to do this and if there was a need to complain I am sure it would have been sorted there and then we had no reason to do so .
We had a twin room at the front shower hot room very warm heating on when we got there and on at night and in the morning so we were warm as toast clean towels each day and room maid up 2 a very good standard for 2 star (I think people forget this when they have booked )
All the people we talked to were happy with what they got while away at the hotel for the money and the 700 plus miles done we could not have done this for lees than £400 pounds on our own with the car .
Now on a night bingo and the singers were very good Bar staff quick and on the ball .
A Big Thanks 2 all at the Hotel :-) :-) All the best from Yorkshire
