What an amazing find. Everything at this hotel, from the very warm welcome, the immaculately clean rooms, the very comfortable beds and the scrumptious breakfast to the fond farewells have convinced us that there is nowhere else we would wish to stay when we are in Torquay. Thank you so much for making our stay perfect.

We chose Ravenswood Hotel because of all the excellent reviews by previous guests. Normally I go into a bit more detail but I would only be writing what has already been said! So I will keep it short and just say that if you want to stay in Torquay you won't find a better place.

What can be said about the Ravenswood Hotel that hasn't already been said by all the amazing reviews on here?? I hate going somewhere with high expectations, as you inevitably end up get let down, and after booking this place based on its excellent feedback I was wondering if we'd end up being the unlucky ones... but no such chance!...

We have just stayed four days here and we will be returning next year. Ashley and Kathy who run the Ravenswood do a fantastic job and are a lovely and friendly couple. Rooms clean. Wonderful breakfast. First class. No negative points. Would highly recommend.

Arrived on Saturday afternoon for a long weekend with the family, greeted warmly by a very pleasant Ashley who carried our cases to our rooms and showed us round their lovely hotel. The breakfasts were incredibly good and you could mix and match any combination of what was on offer (all locally sourced and top quality) - nothing was too... More

A really lovely seaside hotel with THE MOST welcoming hosts you could wish for. Thank you to Kathy & Ashley for making our stay so special. Immaculate rooms, great location and as many have mentioned; a superb breakfast. My daughter is still talking about Kathy & Ashley weeks after we stayed! High praise indeed!

I have just visited the Ravenswood Hotel for 2 days with my mother. The hotel is very conveniently situated about 5-10 mins walk from the bustling harbour. Our twin room had plenty of space, with each bed in its own separate area, which was great. Everything was immaculately clean with everything you would need. Breakfast was lovely - full English...

This was my fourth visit to Ravenswood. It is always a real joy to see Kathy & Ashley and their welcome is always warm and genuine, Being disabled, they attend to wonderful details which make my stay very pleasant. Nothing is too much trouble. The 10 days seemed to fly by. As always, I am looking forward to my visit... More
