Stayed with my mum for two nights in a twin room to celebrate my birthday. Very warm welcome by Paula and Ray with a much needed cuppa. Room spotless and well appointed. Knowledgeable and friendly owners. Nothing too much trouble from carrying suitcase to extra toast and teabags. Wouldn't hesitate to come here again or recommend to others. Just perfect!

During our stay they gave us very knowledgeable advice about local places to visit. Our room was very spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed. There was a...

A brief, action-packed stay in Torquay, and this was the perfect venue. Dedicated car parking; not too far from the centre of town, but just far enough to avoid late-night noise. Handy local transport links - station nearby and buses stop outside! Grosvenor House has been recently had several areas renovated by new proprietors Ray & Paula, and the bedroom...

Just returned from a conference in Torquay and stayed here for three nights. Paula and Ray made me so welcome, nothing was too much trouble, and I had three great nights sleep in the comfortable bed. Lovely white bath sheet towels, nice bed linen and plenty of choice at breakfast. Would certainly recommend.

What a fantastic place, from the moment you step in the door you are greeted by a warm and friendly atmosphere. A really personal touch is applied Paula and Ray refer to you as your name and know exactly what their guest want. Would highly recommend them. Shame we had to leave this place. Tom and Tash
