On arriving at reception was met with musty smell and dirty carpet.Our room was better had new carpet ,bathroom was clean although curtains had not been cleaned for a long time.Net curtains needed bining.The whole place needs a spring clean at least.Bar @entertainment area needs new carpet.Entertainment was very good.Food quite good but done on the cheap i think,we ate at 7-30 @found there were some choices not available.Shearings gala dinner consists of an extra course "a slice of melon"hadly a gala dinner.On the upside our coach driver was very good @we saw alot of the area making me want to return but not to the Torpark unless things improve.

Just came back from Tor Park hotel Torquay with Shearings we had a very enjoyable week
Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, meals were good and good choice menu.
Bedroom was a decent size, and a good size bathroom, but could do with a lick of paint all
over the Hotel.Rooms were cleaned every day ,and fresh towels when you wanted them. Only gripe we had was it,s a good ten minute walk to town centre going down was all right as it,s down hill it,s the coming back , but there is a bus stop right out side the hotel and they run every ten minutes.The weather was good also.

Just spent a week there with Shearings , would go again , the food was very good but the entertainment was first class , one night they had a lad playing three keyboards with a mixing console and strobe lights and you would have thought it was a six piece band . The only down side was the all inclusive bar , you had to take an empty glass back before you got another drink and you were served by a typical jobsworth barmaid , other than that , great holiday

recently stayed at the Tor Park Hotel on an 8 day all inclusive break with shearings.had good sized twin room which was cleaned daily.the food was excellant and service was quick at the all inclusive bar.thought the entertainment was quite good.the hotel is situated up a fairly steep hill but it is only a 5 or 10 minute walk to the seafront.my only complaint was that the bedroom was quite warm but we survived.my husband and i would stay at this hotel again if we went back to torquay.

Hotel staff were very helpful, Hotel in bad need of updating, rooms were small.
Restaurant supervisor was one of the best down to earth nothing was any trouble for her to do.
Drinks in the bar how silly we felt taking our glasses back before we could have another drink, we felt like school children.
Ballroom was dirty and smelly, and seats were ripped. The heat in there was terrible no air conditioning that worked as it blew out hot air, would we go again !!! no not unless it had a big refit.
Nowhere near anything you had to get a bus thankfully the bus stop was practicly outside the hotel.

Good location ample parking & within walking distance of all attractions. Staff very pleasant & helpful,hotel itself very tired & dated. As a Shearings hotel good value but not to the same standard of its other west country venues. Food was good although service was rushed to the point that you could not relax over your meal. Intertainment OK bar was fine but the sprits served were budget. Rooms are fine clean & serviced daily.
