Clean hotel but needs updating, most of the staff helpful . I don't know what award the chef won for his breakfasts because they are nothing special and a bit small . One big annoyance was the piano music being played everywhere downstairs all the time , it was terrible . The bed was small ,not even a double and... More

I booked The Penthouse for 7 nights. A friend with me for the first two days, then I was alone. Penthouse is very comfortable, free wifi throughout, and amazing panoramic views. Magnificent terrace. The Corbyn is very friendly. I felt comfortable as a woman alone going down the the bar. Guests were as friendly as the staff. Food is excellent... More

I recently visited the hotel to use as a base whilst staying in Torquay for two days. I chose it as I had stayed here 30 years ago as a child whilst on holiday. I had such fond memories of the place that I had to return. Although I was delighted to find that things hadn't changed a bit the... More

Hadn't been to the Corbyn for Sunday lunch for somewhile.Dining room has been totally re-decorated and re-furbished all to a very high standard in very nice pastel colours.The lunch itself was excellent and could be classified as fine dining.For £16.50 for 4 courses was very good value.

We booked on line the pictures of the hotel must have been 20 years old as it did not look anything like as shown. It needs a complete refit, as everything was well worn and shabby looking, very disappointing and would not recommend. We cannot comment on the food or staff because we walked out after being shown the room.

only stayed one night, booked at short notice. We had 2 rooms, one twin and one double, both with seaviews. They were spacious and the beds very comfy. Dogs are permitted in rooms which is very good and helpful. We found the service excellent, (eg I couldn't work the shower and someone arrived within 2 minutes to help me), the... More

Amazing sea view, brilliant service and lovely breakfast. Corbyn head hotel is in a great location with apt parking facilities however was let down by strange bed covering as well as filthy bed throw which made me feel uneasy. The shower did not warm up at all and did not drain either so we were unable to shower properly. Cleanliness... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff, good service and a fabulous room - well it was the Penthouse. I have included some photos to show how nice the suite was. If it is within your budget, then I recommend you do the same.

Had a 2 course luncheon here with a local organisation and by far this has been the best food yet out of the 3 hotels in the Ren Group. Lovely setting, friendly & professional staff, terrific food and the ladies powder room is unbelievable! Can't wait until the next visit!
