Warm and friendly and welcoming staff who I think are the actual owners. A little bit old fashioned in a good way, it felt like we went back in time :-) we loved the decorations and all that, although might need a litttle bit of renovating here and there! Beautiful garden too. Breakfast was delicious! They accept guests with pets... More

It was a charming character hotel with all original detail intact. Unusual for this day & age of ripping out and modernizing! The friendly welcome from Stephen and Amanda was most appreciated with their local knowledge where our dog would be as welcome as part of family! Nothing was too much trouble and our meal on the first night was... More

On arrival thought we had arrived at wrong hotel. Not at all like web site depicts. Looks very run down from outside which is a shame as the building obviously has character. Breakfasts were good and plentiful. In need of a major renovation but still a pleasant stay even though not as expected.

We have stayed at Frognel Hall several times now and is always our first choice when having a break in Torquay. Stephen and Amanda are always so welcoming and make us feel at home as soon as we arrive. We find the hotel is in the perfect location for us, as it's very peaceful yet only a few minutes walk...

we stayed in the Master's room, it was really nice with a sea view. The bed was really comfy. Breakfast was good with a good choice. We only dined in once - the evening meal was well cooked and tasty. All in all a lovely stay, Steven and Amanda were friendly and helpful. The only criticism would be the outside... More

Two months ago I based my booking on the good reviews I had read about Frognal Hall, sadly I was very disappointed within twelve hours of arriving there and left in the early hours of the morning. I agree with the comments made earlier by the 'murder mystery' reviewer on the 17th of March. I found our room, a family... More

Just spent a lovely long weekend break with my family at Frognel Hall in sunny Torquay. We have family in Paignton so it was a perfect base to stay. Myself and my son are Torquay United fans, being only a mile away from the ground was again a perfect choice. From the moment we arrived (which was early in the... More

Had a lovely long weekend at Frognel Hall. A great base to explore Torquay and the surrounding area. Ten minute walk into town downhill and slightly longer walking back uphill ha! We stayed in the December room on the second floor which was lovely. Nice size room with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was lovely and definitely sets you up... More

We stayed with our grand-daughter for 6 days. It was an oasis of peace and calm, especially in the garden. An excellent place for a child to explore. Our room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The drawing room with its various games and watching the bats fly at dusk, was a great hit with us all. To... More
