Great to have you back. Thank you kindly for your thumbs-up. The team would love to see you at Christmas, it really is special and popular (80% sold out already). Don't forget, you can enjoy all the atmosphere on and Early Christmas Fun Break or a Carry-On Christmas - all the fun of Christmas at less than half the price!... More

my wife and I took a last minute 3 night break at the Templestowe hotel Torquay this week, as usual,the staff and food was wonderful, the restaurant waiter "Dougie" was such an ambassador for the hotel, he catered for all our needs, (and more) we have used this hotel on quite a few occasions, thus I would recommend others to...

My husband and I and two friends have had a fun 'Turkey and Tinsel' weekend. Even though it was after Christmas every effort was made to make it feel Christmassy, especially the evening entertainment, not at all stale. All the staff were friendly and efficient. We had sea view rooms which were clean and spacious, with lovely fresh bed linen... More

Just returned from a break and found the hotel very nice spotlessly clean throughout comfortable bed and with great entertainment that made the break and I would come back because of this but a couple of things really spoiled my stay.

Glad to hear your overall experience was excellent. However, our apologies over the few issues you had. We serve tea/coffee in the ballroom after evening meals to satisfy customers who want to settle in a seat ready for the entertainment. For those that wish, you can stay in the restaurant, so not sure why this did not happen for yourself.... More

Just back from a Carry on Christmas break at The Templestowe. What a lovely time we had. The hotel was beautifully decorated and had a real festive feel. We were warmly greeted by the reception staff who arranged for our cases to be taken to our rooms as we arrived early so we could go into Torquay to visit the... More

Great to hear you had a lovely holiday. Totally agree with you regarding the glasses. All now under control, with an order for 100 large wine glasses placed. (We had a great number of large glasses disappear at one of our pre-Christmas parties - and then were let down by our supplier for more. Now all resolved thankfully.) Appreciate your... More

Another good short break, very good value for money, no complaints at all about the hotel and the staff but a few of the guests could do with some manners. Two people took our assigned place in the dining room and refused to move. Lovely room with a sea view. Nice to see wifi is available in the entertainment room... More

My friends and i were very satisfied with our rooms along with the food the dinner time menu and snacks were well presented at a very reasonable cost . I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family . Entertainment was first class the comedians who could also sing were the tops .

The arrogance and rudeness of one member of staff almost spoiled what was meant to be a well earned holiday and rest! It has also made me think twice about returning, Our room should have been a single not a double so it was very tight on space. We could only walk around the bed one at a time! Apart... More
