This is my second stay at the Cavendish and I liked it even better to last time. Had a nice room before but liked my room even better this time. Room was a single room so a lot smaller, but much cozier. Room overlooked main road but didn't have any problems with noise. Room was clean and tidy and bed... More

Having watched the show, we just had to visit....From the moment we walked through the door, we were greeted with friendly smiles from all the reception staff and made to feel welcome and we were also allocated a great room. ALL the hotel staff from reception through to waiting staff couldn't do enough for us and we would like to... More

Booked a one night stay on our way back from a break in France. We booked it purely because of its TV fame and it was clear so did several of the other guests. On arrival the reception area had clearly just been refurbished with a new floor and a revamp. On checking in we were greeted by a male... More

This hotel is great. It's a family run gem in the heart of Torquay that ticks all the boxes - It's clean, safe, economical and great fun. If you want a five star hotel - with the star rating for entertainment and comedy value, then you've found the place! Brilliant!

We were ready as we had seen it on TV. Reception was very smart as the rest except the bedroom. Very cold as windows wouldn't shut. Everywhere very clean just dated. We had a very nice afternoon tea and breakfast was delicious. Staff were excellent. Indoor pool not so inviting.

Booked a cheap and cheerful family room for family of 5 with 3 children (aged 8, 11, 13) to escape to the sea. Bit nervous about what to expect, but pleasantly surprised. Some building work going on outside, but clearly this is where they are making improvements which is good to see and didn't bother us atall. After a long... More

This hotel is disgusting! Our room, number 9 on the ground floor, was out-dated, poorly ventilated and the carpet was thread-bare. The bathroom; a two-toned beige suit, yellow walls and a red carpet benefitted from a window overlooking the bathtub and a toilet that would not flush. The people next door were blaring out Eminem until 3am and the bed... More

We've stay at this hotel quite often, and have never had a bad stay. Since the filming of the Channel 4 TV series "The Hotel", the hotel is currently undergoing a make over. The reception lobby has a lovely new floor, and the hotel roof is currently being replaced. We we're last here in December, and the small changes that... More
