A flying visit but still made to feel very welcome. On arrival we were offered fresh coffee and given time to relax from our journey. The room was clean and well presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful in giving ideas of walks and places to go. The breakfast was outstanding and I can honestly say I've never seen... More

Excellent hotel. Fantastic staff and room. I would highly recommend booking into this establishment if you are staying in Torquay. Situated near Meadfoot beach and a small stroll from Torquay town centre itself, I was really impressed. Great cooked breakfast too. I will return. :-)

We spent all day on Saturday in Paignton and reminisced in the sunshine. The Meadfoot Bay Hotel and proprietors were perfect. The breakfast was amazing and it was so... More

This was our second visit to The Meadfoot, and it still exceeded our expectations. We had the Signature Suite this time...wow! It has such a calm relaxing ambience, is beautifully designed, a wonderfully comfortable bed, and the adjoining terrace was delightful with a lovely water feature and pretty lighting. Our complimentary drinks were unexpected and much appreciated too.The bathroom is... More

Stayed here for a short break in Torquay. Lovely hotel, very clean and welcoming. Coffee or tea on arrival very nice. Breakfast, the choice is amazing. Not far from the centre of the town, walkable. There is a small bar in the lounge area, although I didn't try this - it looks fully stocked with a great range of drinks.... More

So I read the reviews for this hotel and saw how great they were, so I booked to stay for my husbands birthday in the suite with terrace for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived we were well looked after, we were offered complimentary tea or coffee which was nice. Gary really was lovely and made us feel right... More
