We came back to The Grand for a 3 night summer break in June having previously stayed in late September a couple of years ago. We were satisfied then and wondered how it would be in the summer. We were not disappointed. A spacious sea-view room was good value - we did find however that the previous, probably portly incumbent,... More

We stayed here last year and it was okay. But having read the reviews on Trip Advisor it had seemingly gone downhill so this years holiday we opted to stay elsewhere in Torquay. I'm glad we did. We decided to go back to the Grand just for a Devon Tea as from what we remembered last year it was exceptional.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in April 2014. The hotel was lovely and the location was perfect over looking the bay and a short walk from local shops and restaurants. The room was clean with a very comfy bed and a cosy feel to it. We only used the restaurant for breakfast which was included in the price of... More

We have stayed at The Grand Hotel before over the years, but somehow the glory that once was is fading away rapidly. Having negotiated a reasonable rate direct with The Grand, I was rather disappointed with the double room we received. The view from our room was completely non-existent and the fixture and fittings had all seen far better days... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a large conference. Our first floor room was large with a sea view but in places the grandeur was fading. Whilst we had a recently upgraded bathroom, the rest of the room was starting to show its age. During our stay we visited a number of other rooms and its true to... More

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a relaxing 3 nights at The Grand Hotel, Torquay (July 2014). The hotel is dated and in need of some TLC, this hotel is rated as four star and needs upgrading. I understand if they are wanting to keep a classic, old look but ripped carpet and stained wallpaper is unacceptable. The... More

I've been coming to Torquay for 3 decades now and have always walked past the Grand Hotel, wondering what it was like and whether it lived up to its "grand" title. Well, I'm pleased to say that it does. I stayed here for 4 nights recently and found the staff extremely friendly, the food delicious and the rooms clean. The... More
