“Birthday lunch was a great success”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We booked a family meal for 17 people ( including 6 children ) to celebrate 3 family birthdays in one week and have had a brilliant afternoon, the menu choices were good for all of us( the children's menu is really good value). The food was lovely tasty and of a good quality, nothing was to much trouble and at the end of the meal we were presented with 3 birthday cakes a really lovely end to a relaxing enjoyable afternoon. Great value and there was also a pianist play in the bar

We don't understand the positive reviews for the Bay Hotel at all!! Some of the reviewers must have VERY low standards! We just got back today from a 3 night stay at this hotel and we don't ever plan on going there again. The hotel looked nice enough on the website and from the outside when we arrived...the inside however was a complete let down. The decor was shabby throughout and cleanliness was poor. We had to change rooms within 10 mins of arriving because the toilet wouldn't flush. The substitute room was freezing cold (we had to ask for the heating to be switched on!), the carpet and furniture were grubby, there was damp and mould in the bathroom and we found bugs crawling on the pillows!! It was noisy at night and one woman who appeared to either own or manage the place was drunk in the bar every night, swearing and making a spectacle of herself, very unprofessional! The hotel is apparently under new management, well they have a LONG way to go to knock that place into shape. The young girl on reception didn't have a clue what she was doing and we were given no receipt for the money we paid. The only member of staff who was polite and helpful was the person waiting on people at breakfast. Give this place a wide berth...we couldn't wait to get out of there!!

We are currently staying here and cannot fault it. The room is spotless and lovely and warm. The staff are wonderful especially Brendan and Jason and nothing is too much for them. The breakfast is lovely especially the scrambled eggs. If you are looking for a cosy friendly place to stay then The Bay is the one

Spent some time recently (during half term week) at the Bay Hotel Teignmouth. Found the staff really friendly and eager to make our visit as enjoyable as possible. Was a bit apprehensive at first having only read previous reviews of this hotel after we had arrived, but couldn't find anything wrong, so pleasantly surprised. Especially happy as the chef bent over backwards to cater for us as we are both vegetarians who don't like mushrooms. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice clean and comfortable hotel, close to the beaches.

Very disappointed with this hotel at £80.00 for b and b. We got a small room (10) on top floor. Loads of narrow stairs with very dodgy handrail.No view except side street. Poor teamaking facilities .awful bathroom with leaking tap,loo flush hardly operating,window not opening due to broken sashcord(this might be illegal?) Chandelier in bedroom so low it hits your head everytime you walk across the room. Breakfast mediocre;had to keep asking for all the things not on the table and not very pleasant staff. Parking is pretty poor and once you are in it is a problem to get out. Food VERY EXPENSIVE and a limited menu on offer. Had a lovely roast at the pub nearby at half the price! Would never stay there again

From a distance the Bay Hotel looks very smart (and there isn't much choice in Teignmouth), but on closer inspection it is clear it is in need of refurbishment. The gentleman owner had a room and showed us up two narrow flights of stairs, however we were pleasantly surprised. He had obviously been watching The Hotel Inspector as the room was magnolia with an accent wall, and had some 'shabby chic' furniture. However the chandelier was like nothing I have ever seen before.... The bathroom was very large and clean but in desperate need of decent grouting around the bath and new shelving (which was sloping) instead of cheap metal hanging shelving for your toiletries. The sink plug had had an argument with its chain. Little things like this let the room down. The bed was a small double but very clean and fresh with a clean duvet cover, although my husband's pillows both sagged into the middle. It doesn't cost much to replace things like this and tidy up the bathroom. OK I will now mention the breakfast room. We had to walk into the basement – down some more dingy stairs to a filthy dirty door which had no sign on. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the large breakfast room, again they had refurbished in shabby chic cream and mulberry with trendy canvases on the walls, although it was a bit stuffy as there were no windows.. But why that awful awful depressing walk down to the basement which really puts you off eating there? There is a perfectly large, airy dining room on the ground floor which would have been so much better to eat in. Breakfast was adequate, but not much choice apart from a cooked breakfast or a couple of eggs. Again I must stress the staff were all lovely and friendly, but this place needs finishing off, outside and the common parts need a good coat of paint, clean fresh carpets, especially the basement and door leading to the breakfast room.

Comfortable four night stay in very central hotel, handy for all attractions. Breakfasts were excellent. Freshly cooked to order. Did not have dinner here as we were visiting relations and ate out. Pleasant friendly staff.

Room Tip: Some rooms will have a sea view.
