We have just returned from The Tor Park Hotel booked through Shearing Self Drive holiday. The hotel is on the outskirts of the town. A bus stop very nearby was excellent for travelling into Torquay or further afield, we used this service every day to visit different parts of Devon. The hotel itself could ro with refurbishment especially the bathroom in our bedroom, which had wallpaper coming off the walls, no wall bracket for the mixer tap shower and the window frames were very dirty. The staff were all excellent but the poor dining room staff I felt sorry for, they were desperately short staffed and literaly ran around all the time, our last two meals we waited 30mins before we were even asked what our order was, the last morning we waited 45mins for our cup of teas to arrive, I feel the Manager should employ more staff as we were certainly put off and would not return (I must point out it was not the waiting staff at fault and they did keep apologising)
. We stayed at the Royal Hotel in Whitby 3 weeks ago and the service because of being well staffed could not be faulted although that also needed a refurbishment. We have always found Shearings although not cheap to be worth the cost but feel they should start spending some money on their Hotels as it is very off putting.
