“Excellent!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stayed 7 nights at the hotel and it was excellent. The rooms were clean, the food was great and the staff were really polite. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we walked through the door. There was a lovely lounge bar as well, where you could have a quiet drink in the evening if you wished. Very peaceful where the hotel is situated with great views.

Me and my wife used this hotel for a short break in July 2014

We found the hotel to be excellent with very good rooms and an excellent restaurant

What was really impressive however was the service. My wife is disabled and uses a wheel chair. The hotel staff went out of their way to help us with advice and help with taxis and busses so we were able to get around. Without their help it would have been difficult to enjoy the holiday. We had a fantastic time as result of their efforts

A very pleasant stay, A warm welcome from the family run hotel. The breakfast was a big hit and the Dinner had a varied choice. The WIFI was not the best, it kept knocking off. The room was very comfortable, had a good choice of tea, coffee etc in the room and a very large TV. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

Want to spend some time in the Torbay area? Need a hotel? Then look no further than the Summerhill hotel. This family run hotel really puts some 4-star hotels to shame, or when were you last presented with a pre-heated breakfast plate? It's the small things that count, and this hotel has many. Clean rooms, friendly professional staff that go out of their way to help. Very good food. A massive brass tripod telescope that overlooks the bay in the dining room (à la Hercule Poirot). A 32" flatscreen TV in the room. Wifi availability and very reasonable bar prices. This is not an ultra-modern hotel, its charm comes from the feeling you are in a Edgar Wallace film expecting to meet Klaus Kinski and Joachim Fuchsberger coming down the Stairs!

A very pleasant stay. Very welcoming family run hotel. Room clean and well presented. Breakfast exceptional.
All this and a stones throw from the beach and amenities
Would definitely return and recommend

I stopped for four nights in June as I was working at a nearby show. The hotel itself is quite nice, but probably not the best location as it's easy to get lost trying to find it! Like I did a few times! The breakfast is a bit hit and miss, so don't expect too much. I found sleep quality to be 10/10. Wifi wasn't the best, and kept knocking off, but I was at the end of the block so this is probably why. No major complaints, I had a pleasant stay.
