Would recommend and return to this hotel. Located on the seafront the Torbay offered us excellent service for our Turkey and Tinsel stay. Our room on the second floor was front facing and very comfortable with an excellent en-suite and plenty of room. The lounges, restaurant, bars & function room very well presented and comfortable. Restaurant menus were varied and... More

My friend and I stayed at the Torbay hotel in Torquay, the food was really good and we thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of the hotel, it is in a lovely position overlooking the harbour and very convenient for the shops. There was entertainment and bingo every evening. The restaurant was very busy and it was a bit of a job... More

We arrived on 18 November. Very quick check-in with luggage taken up to rooms. We paid extra for a front facing room which was well appointed, the bedroom obviously having had a modern facelift, though the bathroom still needs that update. However, everything was clean and tidy and perfect for the money we paid. The meals, breakfast and dinner were... More

This hotel is very tired and could do with a major re vamp but the staff and service are spot on! It is in a great location, very close to the town where you are spoilt for choice of where to eat and drink.

My husband and I visited this hotel for 2 nights from Friday 25th November 2016, for a romantic break. We had paid an extra £28 for what I believed to be a sea view room, but turned out to be a tree view room! I could barely see the water through the bare November branches, and can imagine it would...

This hotel is in an excellent location right on the sea front & close to amenities, there is a bus stop right outside the hotel that takes you to other towns in the Torbay area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Right at the heart of beautiful Torquay, the Torbay Hotel benefits from stunning views over the lovely harbour. The hotel can be summed up as, 'grand features in warm surroundings,' and includes front-facing rooms with modern facilities - the Premier and Superior rooms are particularly desirable. It has a large ballroom, two bars, an indoor heated swimming pool and a sun terrace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the town centre's shops, boutiques and restaurants. After two years of extensive restoration Royal Terrace Gardens (aka "Rock Walk") has been returned to its former glory with a modern day twist. Located just next to the Torbay Hotel, Rock Walk offers spectacular views across the bay, and at night when it is beautifully lit up, it makes for the perfect evening stroll. ... more   less
