Have just returned home form a really nice 6 night stay. Great welcome from Gary showed us the fridge to get fresh milk and water for a cuppa after a long journey. We had room no 5 lovely large suite with a super king comfortable bed , huge bathroom with lovely big tub, and big towels that actually go around you loved that. Plenty of storage as going for 6 nights and changeable weather took a bit of everything but got it all away. Liked there was 2 seatings for breakfast always did 2nd not a morning person especially on holiday. Excellent choice loved the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs . The home made lemon yogurt was lovely on my muesli . Gary or Philip aways around if you needed anything or just for a chat with suggestions of places to go or eat. Nice bar in the evening for a drink and chat with other guests. Ran as an honesty bar if no body around. We had booked all are restaurants before we came down, but it was a first when told if you would like a take way just to let the guys know and you could use the dinning room nice touch. Can highly recommend this very friendly small hotel clean rooms important in this day and age. Great service and friendly staff what more could you wish for.

Dear Wendy - thanks so much for leaving such a detailed, and wonderful review. We so enjoyed having you and John to stay, you were both fabulous company and so much fun - the whole house enjoyed you at the bar! You had our biggest room, with a huge bed so glad you enjoyed it. Pleased you were happy with the 2 sittings, they have been really popular this summer so we will keep them for the future. The salmon is so popular, and it is from an award winning smokehouse in Newton Abbot so happy you loved it so much! And the bar is so popular glad you made great use of it. Only hope you both return in the future, look after yourselves, Gary

IMMACULATE Just arrived home after a wonderful 4 night stay at the Torcroft Hotel, we arrived early and was greeted warmly by Gary who made us extremely welcome. The hotel as stylish reception rooms,bar and bedrooms and is exceptionally clean. Breakfast was delicious and had a varied choice and was freshly cooked. Staff are courteous and nothing was to much trouble for them. The hotel is in a quite location central for all amenities Hopefully we will be back and the Torcroft Hotel will be our 1st choice.
