Stayed here for one night whilst visiting family. Amazing experience, it's a family run hotel with fantastic attention to detail. We were offered drinks on arrival and complimentary bottles of water and glasses of sherry in the room! The breakfast was a really big selection and you could order hot breakfast as well. Overall really impressed, definitely coming back!

We stayed here for our honeymoon. The staff literally could not do enough for us, so welcoming and friendly. The room was really comfortable, the staff had scattered rose petals all over for us! The breakfast was excellent, so much choice! The owner remembered our preferred drink and after a couple of days brought it to the table without us... More

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. :-)

The hotel is situated on Meadfoot Road, and is in a delightful leafy area a short distance from the sea and just a little away from the main bustling town of Torquay. Upon arrival at the... 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
