We have stayed at the Ravenswood Hotel several times in the last five years as it was a small family run hotel and we liked the home from home feeling. We were always greeted like friends. On our first visit this year we found it had changed ownership and a total renovation. The new owners are lovely and the same... More

Lovely hotel in good location for Torquay harbour and sea front. Room was small but obviously newly decorated with some lovely touches. Good breakfast. Very Friendly welcome and Ashley had obviously made a point of remembering my name before arrival.

Only stayed one night with my family, but it was amazing. Ashley cooks an awesome breakfast, anything you would like. Room was spotless, bathroom was a bit small but it was the best that they could do with the space available. Would go back again x

A relaxing few days at The Ravenswood which was near to the sea front. Ensuite room had character and was clean and fresh. Kathy and Ashley are delightful, we had a warm and friendly greeting, nothing was too much trouble for them, and their local knowledge helpful. Breakfast was varied and superb! A thoroughly enjoyable stay. Polly

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ashley and Kathy welcome you to the Ravenswood Hotel, centrally located only 400 metres from Torquay harbour and town centre. We are a B&B hotel, offering clean, good value, non-smoking accommodation, plus an excellent breakfast, served in the dining room, with views over Torwood Gardens. The location of the Ravenswood Hotel is very central, being adjacent to Torquay Museum and on the Agatha Christie Mile. A short walk of 400 metres takes you to the harbour, with its boats, restaurants, shops and Pavilion, or to the central shopping area in Fleet Street and Torquay's nightlife and theatres. Also within a 400 metre radius are over 30 pubs, cafes and restaurants, so you will be spoilt for choice when selecting something to eat. Torquay's blue flag award beaches are but a short walk away, and for the energetic, the south west coast path is a great place to walk and take in the scenery. ... more   less
