Spotless and tasteful room with amazing sea view. Smart modern bathroom--with a proper heated towel rail! Hotel has a bar/restaurant on the ground floor so food and drink are close at hand. Hotel guests also have their own entrance to the building separate from the bar/restaurant. Lovely hotel in a great location.

We booked at the Royal for a weekend break in the Torquay area, check in is from 14.00 hrs so we arrived shortly after that. Ample safe parking. Check in was swift and we were escorted to the room which was very clean, homely with a great bathroom and very comfortable bed. Lovely view from the window over the cliffs... More

This is a pub/hotel on Babbacombe sea front, sea view room, clean warm and comfortable. The staff are friendly but let you get on with your business. We would always try for a room here when visiting Torquay.

We didn't eat at the hotel but noted there was a restaurant and several others close by. Went for a walk down along Babbacombe beach in the morning. There's a cliff railway you can... More

What stunning views from the Babbacombe Royal hotel. Although the bar areas could do with refurbishing which we are sure will be carried out as soon as. Our room was brilliant! We will definitely return to the hotel. A tip park not on the left as you go into the car park as other cars struggle to get passed the... More

I stayed for one night - didn't eat there, so only judging the accomodation. Everyone was very friendly, the room and linen were clean and well presented. Practical rather than luxurious, but the price was also practical and there were lovely views. The one criticism is that the room smelt quite strongly of cigarette smoke, which still lingered after a... More

Apologies it's taken me so long to write about the amazing stay we had back in August for a family wedding. The service from booking to checkout was five star all the way. The management and all the staff were really accommodating when we said we needed to be at the wedding by 10 and with young children provided us... More

Simple clean rooms. Helpful and friendly staff and good food. We had a room with a great view of the sea and the coastline. We only stayed one night but it was great for what we needed. Met some friendly locals in the pub downstairs.

Only stayed for one night and did not eat or drink here but, our room was clean, staff were friendly and helpful and it is an ideal location if you are going to Babbacombe theatre. Would happily book again.
