this hotel meets all standards expected, comfy bed, adequate room in en-suite bathroom. windows are double glazed to keep out the noise from the seagulls, but they do have the decency to go to sleep from 10pm. the meals are filling and tasty, also the waiters/waitresses are on the ball ,you are not kept waiting.

Having stayed at this hotel previously we knew what to expect. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and tidy. Food adequate and a reasonable variety of dishes to choose from. Staff over the whole hotel were excellent, friendly and very helpful. The usual complaint about the lift being not really fit for purpose. You get what you pay... More

We just spent four nights at The Bay Torbay which we found to be full of character. We had a front facing room on the second floor which overlooked the gardens, fountain and harbour/sea although the sea was rather obscured by large trees. It was a very clean and comfortable room. We found all the communal areas to be clean... More

We had a lovely weekend in the Bay Torbay Hotel.Breakfast was early 8-9am but adequate. The evening meal was delicious and an excellent choice. The room was small at the back of the hotel and the shower very compact but it was clean and the view was of the cliff covered in trees. It did have an old tv that... More

The room was very clean, bed comfortable and towels etc changed daily. The staff were very helpful and pleaant. The breakfast was ok the evening meals were a bit hit and miss although... More

Stayed here for a night in April 2014. It was very good value for money. Room was very dated but I understand that there are superior rooms and they are possibly renovating room by room. There is a swimming pool, we did use it. Breakfast was ok. Can't be any more central. Overall, it was fine, as the old saying... More

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 with sea views 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
