As Henry James said in 1843 "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea" and this is an ideal place to try out the old English custom of afternoon. We came as a birthday treat for my sister, and this was acknowledged by the manager by giving her a... More

We booked a 4 night stay in a 2 bedroomed suite for my elderly father, husband and our 2 dogs. The entrance of the hotel and communal parts on the ground floor were first rate and impressive and the staff very welcoming. Our suite was on the 2nd floor and sadly, the hallway carpet was worn and the décor needed... More

On arriving at the hotel we had to go up a flight of marble steps which were very badly cracked and crumbling in places, there is an ACCIDENT just waiting to happen on these steps, it's certainly NOT a very GOOD first impression of this hotel. The same marble covers the floor in the entrance hall and this is also... More

On first impressions the Grand hotel in Torquay looks just that. On closer inspection the decor is looking a little tired. My friend and I booked in for our 3 night stay and the ladies on reception were very friendly ensuring we were aware of hotel facilities. We were asked at what time we would like our evening meal....7.30 was... More

We have just returned today from a 2 night break at this hotel through Booking.com. Upon arrival the hotel looks slightly in need of some tlc but upon on entering the doors....wow!! Magnificent! We parked easily and were provided with a pass for our car. We had a sea view room that was clean and very big! The rooms and... More

Stayed for two nights early September on a Dinner, B&B deal with Cream Tea. We arrived late morning and were able to park in front of the hotel. We decided to leave the car in this space over the weekend as parking is limited and the hotel was full. On arrival our luggage was stored for us and we were... More

Managed to get a good deal however, found the Hotel to be well past it's best. Our room was tiny and overlooked the kitchen roof, so was very warm and noisy. Despite booking a time for dinner well in advance, and confirming the day before arriving, the Hotel had no record and the time we wanted was blocked out by... More

Had a lovely weekend. Hotel was very clean but could do with a a little TLC. Food excellent staff very friendly and were very helpful. The only little thing I need to say is we had a couple of little issue and felt they weren't dealt with the way I thought they should have been. When these things happened I... More

We recently stayed at the Grand and were pleasantly surprised how lovely it is. Having read all the bad reviews we were concerned our weekend would be awful. However upon arrival at the hotel on Saturday at 12 noon we were greeted by a very pleasant young man on reception who was more than helpful. We were able to go... More

Went for a meal here tonight. Having waited for too long to have this served to us and then it was rubbish - 'hand cut chips' raw in the middle, 55 degree lamb was overdone, t-bone steak was small and well done rather than medium rare, kids pizza was over cooked from frozen. Service was also poor with staff not... More
