Went here for a dance weekend. Excellent value & good facilities. On a very cold weekend the whole place was toasting. Nice pool. Good dancefloor. Restaurant staff were very good.

Myself, my husband and daughter stayed for the weekend at this hotel. At first we thought that our grown up daughter wouldn't have a sea view being in a single room, and would possibly have a room far away from ours. We were pleasantly surprised, although her room overlooked the car park it was possible for her to see the sea. She said her room was cosy, spotlessly clean and she was pleased with the facilities, and the room was just opposite ours. She said ,however, that her neighbours in the rooms either side , were watching TV until the early hours of the morning and it disturbed her sleep somewhat. Our room was fine, very clean and comfortable and an adjacent sea view. We had no problem with any noise.
The hotel has bags of character, with themed public rooms and interesting old photographs on the walls.
It is an ideal location right on the seafront, and the breakfast and food in the restaurant was excellent.

double room a bit small but clean. Blanket on bed not duvet. Unfortunately overlooked car park so a bit noisy. However food and service excellent. Only downside is that went with disabled relative and no ramp up to reception just very steep steps although there was a ramp down to the restuarant. Disabled room on first floor and although stair lift down to fire exit this wouldn't work if there was no electricity! Would stay again though.

This was our first bowls tour and I do not think our stay at this hotel could ever be surpassed. The check in was well organised for a large group and our twin room was spacious with an excellent bathroom. Everything was clean and bright and serviced to the highest standard every day. The dining room was delightful and the food was superb. The breakfast was amazing and we were spoilt for choice, it really set us up for the day. Dinner was just as good, plenty of choice, generous portions and cooked to a very high standard. All staff were very attentive and helpful. I hope we will be going to this hotel again and we would recommend it to anyone

A couple of things that occured to us:

We feel that having the Pool table in the morning room where the television was downstairs was not a good idea. If people were in there watching television they would not want to be interrupted by people playing pool. The pool table should be moved to within the bar area.

We were also taken aback with staff attittudes when placing an order for lunch in the bar and the order came wrong and then it was taken away and just modified, however not satisfactorily. We actually felt we had been a real nuisance that day.

We have been regular visitors to the Redcliffe Hotel for some years, always during the low season. As a family owned hotel, Guests are assured of the highest levels of service and personal attention. The Hotel is located in an excellent positon with superb views of Torbay and altthough only a short walk from the centre of Paignton, is far enough away not to be affected by the noise from the usual visitor attractions of a seaside resort. The comfortable lounges provide a quiet haven where guests can meet up with friends, whilst the Hotel Restaurant is a delight, the large panoramic windows affording magnificent views over the bay. Food quality is excellent - with a choice of imaginative dishes available each evening for Dinner from a varied menu that offers something for every taste. Similarly, Breakfast at the Redcliffe is a delight, with an excellent selection of all the usual goodies. The only minor observation (not a criticism) we would make is that for guests used to sleeping in a king size bed, the standard double bed can take a while to get used to. All in all, though, this is a Hotel that we would recommend unreservedly.

Do not be put off by the slightly dark appearance of both the foyer and the external walls of this hotel converted from a Victorian Gentleman's home in c1906. I must admit I had been put off in the past,but some friends of ours thankfully recommended the Redcliffe
( Incidentally,many people do admire this feature but not not to my taste).
This is a traditional seaside hotel with superb sea-views and an outstanding selection of food in a light and airy restaurant with exceptional silver service for which the hotel should be congratulated.
The hotel is a little old fashioned and the clients mature, but that is also its great strength; sadly I fit into this category and felt at home. The en-suite bedroom had a magnificent vista of Torbay and was immaculately clean if a little dated with only a standard double bed and slightly dated furniture.
The indoor swimming pool is superb with Jacuzzi and sauna-no charge!The outdoor pool is also very good with free towels. The Redcliffe is not competing with slick city hotels but it succeeds in providing great value, service and facilities for the rate charged for holiday makers who deserve to get value for money.
