Following a recent stay at the Sefton Hotel I left feeling that this hotel could be better if they simply replaced the miserable male manager and the equally off hand female receptionist ( I believe she is the owners daughter ! ). Generally the staff are all bright and cheery with the exception of the previous aforementioned individuals. This is... More

We have just returned from four days staying at The Sefton hotel which desperately needs updating, the decor looked very old and tired but the hotel was clean. the bedroom we had (number 35) was warm, some of the guests were complaining that their rooms were cold. The food was good apart from Sunday evening when the roast beef was... More

Lovely views from this hotel, and well situated. I was made reasonably comfortable but would have appreciated having my case taken to the room as I had to cover three floors until I found my room. The food was reasonably good but the entertainment might have been better. Fairly good experience overall in a well situated hotel

Recently stayed at the Sefton Hotel in Babbacombe Torquay. Found the hotel to be really good. Food was plentiful, hot and served very well. Good choice for both Breakfast and Evening meal. Room was warm and we particularly liked the evening entertainment and 99p bar for beer, house wine and spirits. We went with Just Go and enjoyed the excursions.... More

Not impressive on entry, and certainly a wee bit shabby, the Sefton turned out to be a delightful surprise. What struck us first was the very pleasant and helpful staff and the good, no-nonsense food which even catered reasonably for my vegetarian wife and nut-allergic daughter. Our family room was big and comfortable, with a patio door leading out on... More

Stayed here a few years ago with a coach of friends had a really good time food and accommodation could not be faulted. Perhaps the decor was not up to standard as you would want at home but we did not feel like it was out of a time warp. The staff were as attentive as any hotel and the... More
