Stayed at this Hotel for 5 days with GB tours. Asked for a refurbished room on a high floor. We were given Room 56 which had been refurbished and had a view of the sea over the roof tops.
The room itself was nice and clean with fresh linen and towels changed frequently during our stay. There was a wall mounted flat screen TV and a plentiful supply of tea and coffee and lots of storage for our 5 day stay. My only concern was that the bathroom could do with a bit more TLC and you do need to be careful with the hot water when it eventually arrives. The room was nice and quiet apart from occasional gulls but they did not seem too bad at this time of year.

The main areas of the hotel have been upgraded and are kept very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful and always had a smile. The evening entertainment was also excellent and they managed to get everybody involved.

The Hotel is perfectly situated a few minutes stroll from either the beach or the town centre. It was also central for all our trips out on the coach. We also managed a bus trip to Brixham and a ride on the steam train.

My only complaint was with the standard of the food and the speed of service. The homemade soups and starters were excellent but the vegetables always looked as if they had been warmed up from the day before and the potatoes swimming in oil. We also found the look of the apple crumble very unappealing with stewed brown apples and exceedingly sweet custard. We also found that sitting on the first or last tables you were either first to be served or last as they served the tables in numerical order and not because you had finished your previous course. It did feel slightly like school dinners.

I would say that our holiday was excellent value for money but I'm not sure I would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room on a high floor as they seem to be quieter.

I have also just spent 4 days at Torbay Court with GB Tours, I cannot fail this weekend break. Staff very helpful, food good, clean room, beds comfortable, evening entertainment very good.

Those who are wanting 'The Ritz Hotel' excellence will clearly be in the wrong place, so don't you dare complain, this hotel for the price you pay is first class. I will certainly recommend, and hope that GBtours will use again. Well done to the staff.

Room Tip: In a quiet location anyway, a train passes rarely and is not an issue.

Just spent 4 days with GB Tours staying here for a short break. Hotel was very good, lovely helpful staff and clean comfortable rooms (although my twin bedded room would have been a bit small for a couple). Lovely food throughout. Entertainment in evenings. Friendly atmosphere. Hotel close to beach and shops. Would recommend it to friends,

Room Tip: Lift available to all floors

Just spent 4 days at the Torbay court hotel through GB tours.
John our driver gets top marks .
Staff at the Hotel very friendly and helpful Food we thought was very good and no waiting. Restaurant staff all in uniform very smart.Shame about the Wednesday night entertainer .Still you cant please us all. Our main concern was our "Cupboard" we had, called a double room .Room 3 is NO double it is very poorly furnished nothing matching just odd bits from other places.It was clean, bed comfortable BUT total cheerless and depressing.What a shame it lets it self down .This is management fault Not the staff

Room Tip: Dont accept rooms 3-4-5 on ground floor Take minimum luggage as you have minimum space
