We took advantage of a low season offer and enjoyed our stay at The Grand hotel in Torquay. We are fans of the Richardson hotels - they are all luxurious in Victorian splendour. We ate in The Compass brasserie and enjoyed the sumptuous ambience at reasonable prices. Everything about it was first class.

The Grand is a lovely hotel overlooking the sea. It is a very welcoming hotel & the staff are friendly & helpful. We didn't have dinner but the breakfast was excellent. The spa facilities are adequate but not brilliant. The gym is ok & the pool is fine. The town centre is a short walk away. Overall, just a lovely... More

Just spent a luxury weekend with friends at The Grand Hotel, Torquay, excellent customer service. Really good food, reasonably priced. Bedrooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. Disable parking close by is a problem. Would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends & family.

I booked dinner, bed and breakfast for 2 nights for my Mum's 70th birthday and had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The restaurant staff were impeccable on both nights and on the second night my family joined us for a surprise meal and we were given a bottle of processco on the house which was a really nice touch....

From our very first enquiry of availability to our final checkout the "Grand" was truly GRAND!!! My wife and I needed a sea front hotel where we could take my wife's elderly parents who has mobility issues. The hotel foyer has an easy access ramp for wheelchairs and a lift to all the floors. The room 100 was actually a... More

The Grand Hotel, well it probably was once upon a time. An amazing building which is beautifully located on the bay at Torquay. Sadly it is not very Grand now. I just wish someone would lavish some money on it and return it to the 1920's or 1930's glamour it was once so famous for. The reception and through to... More

We booked some time ago following a promotion deal. Reception was helpful and even though we were early and our room not yet ready, we were checked in. Dinner the first evening was not ideal. Because there was a formal dinner in the main dining room, we were seated in the bar area, which was rather cold. The service was... More

My wife and I booked into the Torquay Grand hotel new years eve an executive double room and the gala dinner. We were allocated room 425 which could not be described as executive by any stretch of the imagination the view from the window we didn’t expect the hanging gardens of Babylon or even a sea view but we expected...

the reception area is a very nice looking part of the hotel, and the spa and indoor pool look absolutely amazing. The room was comfortable, had a nice sea view and the breakfast was lovely. However, the evening meal was a little too upmarket, without any more standard options available, not even for children. The decor elsewhere is looking tired,... More
