We stayed here on a business trip . It was clean but very aged. I was a little concerned when they gave me a key to open my room instead of an electronic card. The fact that they said my key was missing should have rang alarm bells so imagine my surprise when I got upstairs and found someone's belongings... More

We have become annual frequenters of this hotel when travelling down to stay there for an annual trade show. It never disappoints, from the moment we walk in we love it, its like walking away from every day troubles of the world and shutting yourselves away in a restful cocoon! We always treat ourselves to an evening meal in the... More

Stayed for three days at the Grand hotel and the hotel staff from start to finish were friendly and efficient at all times. Room was ok but needs a little tlc. Had a real downpour and wind coming off the sea one night which whistled through the sides of the window. Used the indoor swimming pool and gym facilities. All... More

A bit disorganised, things seemed to be just a bit late,for example,when we were eventually asked to go in for dinner, the group were still doing a sound test!!,also it was along time before the starters arrived. I am sorry to say that the food was indifferent, best course the pudding. The sound system for the draw and auction was... More

Thank you for your review regarding the Torquay Tennis club dinner last Saturday. I am surprised by your comments as we called you through 5 minutes prior to the time on our schedule which was 8pm. We were ready as a hotel to serve you straight away but we were asked to delay serving the starter by your organiser as... More

The Grand at Torquay is a typical Edwardian "pile" of an hotel, in many places very elegant. Our room was fine, overlooking the park.The "special" rate of £136 seemed a bit high to me in the off-season. The hotel needs a bit of TLC to keep up to the mark expected for 4 stars - the bathtub did not drain... More

Great find on Booking.com. Excellent hotel, brilliant staff, delicious food. Perfect location by the railway station and overlooking the sea. Only a short walk along the seafront to the centre of Torquay and the harbour area, (but also nearby bus stop and regular bus service). This was my first stay here and would certainly go back. Could say a little... More

My 4th stay at The Grand, all to attend conferences. My room on this occasion was very nice and well equipped (better than my previous visits) All of the staff have been more than helpful, all very polite and it's nice to see some of the same faces again and again each time I visit. The food served in the... More
