You can see the grandeur that this hotel would once have displayed. We were on a four day, three night break with Shearing. We cannot fault the way arrangements for luggage was taken care of, once on the coach never seen again till brought to our room. Our room 221 was rear facing. The room itself was a good size, and contained all we required, and contrary to other reviews we found the room extremely warm. However, our view was non existent we looked out through a sash window, the frame of which was not in a very good state of repair, onto a flat roof on which was a container of milk which might have been there for quite a while. The bathroom had a quite distinctive smell which only slightly disappeared when the light/extractor was put on. The biggest problem was the toilet. It was located such that you could not sit astride it, centimetres off the wall. The stairwell leading to our room had an extremely odd smell as well.
We enjoyed the breakfasts, buffet style is our favourite.
All things considered it was good value for a budget break weekend. Next time we would consider upgrading to a room on the front.
- 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
