Spent five enjoyable days at the Southbank. Clean and comfortable rooms well appointed with nice central location close to facilities and activities. Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful - even went out a purchased a room fan for us to use during the unseasonably hot weather. Highly recommended. Great value for money.

I chose the Southbank Hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were visiting the Torquay area for a very special event that our daughter was participating in and were anxious that everything was perfect for the occasion. We could not have been more impressed with the Southbank and the owners Ian and Marie. From start to finish they ensured that our...

Very clean great rooms and wonderful location. Only minutes from the beach and a very pleasant walk along the front to the town centre. Where you will find all your favourite shops and great places to eat. I would recommend this hotel for your perfect stay in Torquay.
