Over the last 36 years I am frequently using hotels and guest houses as I travel throughout the country in business and this is the best and most reasonable one that I have come across. The breakfast is excellent; the rooms comfortable and the care and attention given by the owner is first class. It truly is a bargain and... More

The hosts friendly and helpful, our double bedroom cosy and clean ( as was the rest of the complex), breakfast serves delicious and generous, our bedroom overlooked a spacious and picturesque park. Great central location to town centre. Would definitely stay there again!

We booked a room here and tried our very best to get there in time. But how could we know that the ferry from Torpoint was on strike that very day? On top of that my phone was out of charge, so I could not call Tusker Lodge and tell them. I call that force majeure. But there was nothing... More

I am sorry that you feel that you had such a bad experience in Torquay, I hope that you can learn from your experience how very important it is to be prepared and organised when travelling abroad, for instance checking that ferries are running and ensuring that you have means of contacting people. Our check in times are clearly stated,... More

Just stayed at this hotel, found the room to be clean and tidy, staff were great as was the breakfast, the hotel is situated close to the town centre which was also a big plus, well worth a visit will book again when in the area

Stayed recently for one night and had an excellent stay for the value. Room was clean and tidy, felt welcome by the owners and was situated a short walk from the harbour. Handy for some lovely eateries near by (would recommend Amici Italian just down the road). Would stay again when I'm in the area.

We spent one night at Tusker Lodge. We received a very friendly welcome and were allowed access to our room early The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom was very dated and the room furnished with bits of mismatched furniture. However it was spotlessly clean and the refreshment tray was excellent. Not the best breakfast though, unfortunately.

The rooms are clean,comfortable and well stocked with Tea,coffee,bottled water etc. The proprietors are friendly and accomodating. Tusker Lodge is approx 10 mins walk from the seafront where you will find plenty of bars and restaurants. There is also a bowling alley with a... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Apart from hearing good things said about us and what we are trying to achieve here, it is always good to know what our guests have found to enjoy outside of the hotel. I will certainly add the bowling alley to our room information so that future... More
