“Spectacular location”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

The hotel is situated on rocks at the foot of Berry Head Country Park with spectacular views across the whole of Torbay, and only a 20 minute leisurely walk into Brixham. On our arrival we received a warm and friendly welcome and were offered help to our room if we needed it. Our room (17), which was located on the first floor, overlooked the hill behind the hotel. It was fairly small and could have done with stronger lighting, but it was clean and comfortable and adequate for our needs. However the motor of the nearby lift was fairly loud, but luckily it wasn't too much of a problem in the evening. The lift noise aside, the hotel was very quiet at night. The restaurant served piping hot breakfasts, and offered a good choice of meals throughout the day. Both the restaurant and terrace offer spectacular views out to sea, and across Torbay. We found all members of staff to be very friendly and helpful, and overall had a great stay despite the weather. We would have no hesitation of returning to the BHH, but would upgrade to a slightly better room.

We have just got back from a week's stay at the Berry Head. Despite some very "changeable" weather, we are in no doubt that this has been one of our best holidays to date in the UK. The food has been exceptional, fantastic fish cooked to perfection; breakfasts to set you up for the day. If you have any special requests the chef is only too happy to oblige - they want their customers to go away happy and we certainly did.
Our room had a wonderful sea view, we could sit up in bed and see the sea first thing in the morning - what could be better? Having read some of the other reviews, yes the hotel is a little dated but that fits in with the period and history, which is fascinating.
For us, the best thing about Berry Head is the people, from the porter who helped with our luggage (and didn't want a tip, he said it was his job!) to the owners, who could not have been more friendly. Their daughter took the time to give us the best directions to Dartmouth. Ken, the restaurant Manager was a star, ably assisted by some lovely waitresses. The housekeeper was also very helpful, as were the receptionists and bar staff.
It's also a great base for the places we wanted to visit, such as Buckfast Abbey, Greenway (Agatha Christie's holiday home) and Coleton Fishacre, the d'Oyly Carte family home.
We were so impressed with everything about the hotel and the area that we have made a booking for another week next year.

Room Tip: Try to get a sea view or coastal view; the supplement is well worth it.

I booked in here for Sunday lunch when on holiday in the area. We were seated in the bistro and not offered the chance to sit outside despite it being the best weather of the year - but we decided to stay in and enjoy the view from our table and avoid sunburn.

The views from this hotel are to die for. Even if you only pop in for a coffee on the terrace it's totally worth it!

Anyway, the hotel is pleasant if decor is a little dated - it kind of works in the location though. My mum had a Sunday carvery and thoroughly enjoyed it and I had a falafel dish with extra chips (I so didn't need those, the meal was massive) - it was a reasonable price, the service was pleasant and friendly and the view - did I mention the view?

Highly recommended for a visit just to soak in the vista!

We stayed at the Berry Head a couple of weeks ago. Interior is tired and dated, and hotel has a strange smell. Walls were paper thin; we could clearly here the people in the rooms next to us. Expensive nightly rate, charged per person. We were attracted to the hotel when we saw photos of the view on the internet. That is basically the only thing going for this place.

We had our wedding here in June, I have been frequenting this hotel since I was a child and have wonderful memories of this place so there was no question of venue when it came to deciding where to celebrate our marriage. We didn't give ourselves much time to plan the reception but this was no problem at all, Sarah is a true professional when it comes to organising events, I felt completely reassured that everything would be just how we wanted it-and it was. Its no wonder Weddings are so popular here and they are nominated for so many various awards. The hotel owner Eddie made sure that our menu was to our exact requirements and helped out with my various random requests and last minute changes with the patience of a saint. I would like to also highlight how fabulous Eddie (manager) was, he personally made sure everything ran smoothly for us, even helped out decorating the room with us the night before-climbing up a ladder whilst I directed where I wanted the hundreds of meters of bunting to go for example :) he's a real star and it wouldn't have been the same without him. On the day it rained so hard but that didn't matter because we were all having such a great time, pimms in the library with yummy canapés on arrival, family photos in the restaurant ( tables were cleared for us as this was a great indoor location for the pics) followed by our sit down dinner in the Mulberry room. Our food was delicious-fresh fish as a main all cooked to perfection, everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it afterwards, it was 71 people to cater for and the service was impeccable. We even got some romantic photos on the rocks by the sea after dinner when the sun came out (the hotel has a little path down to the beach) we also stayed the night in a beautiful sea view balcony room-waking up to that view is unforgettable. This is THE place to get married in the bay, and I can assure any couple looking for a venue that you will not be disappointed. It was perfect-thank you XXX

views amazing, try to book one on the first floor with a balcony.we had a second floor room - still had an amazing view, but a balcony would have made the stay perfect.
i have never known such friendly,happy and helpful staff.
we ate in the restaurant, service great, food not quite so good. next day we ate outside ordering from the bistro menu, cheaper and with a much bigger choice- def would chose that option again.

Room Tip: book if you want to eat in the bistro- gets very busy .

We went for a morning coffee. The weather ok a bit wet, but the view was spectacular. The staff where polite and helpful. We didn't have food, but what was coming to the tables looked good.The road leading to the hotel could do with some pot holes filling in. Could be dangerous to person or car.
