Superb location at a good price. The hotel is situated within an easy walk to the Torquay harbour area and surrounded by loads of quirky eateries. The only drawback would be the size of the room, which was small to say the least. Apart from that it had everything we needed.

On arrival I found the owners very welcoming and approachable which helped as this was my first solo holiday. The room was clean and had everything i need. Breakfast was superb. You could have the full English or a combination of such. The walk into the town and harbour was very pleasant and only about a 10 minute walk. There... More

Tusker Lodge is a great hotel. It's a five minute walk from the centre of Torquay. Parking is secure. Breakfasts were great. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Absolutely no complaints about the hotel at all. This was our second visit and we plan to return again next summer.

We were really impressed with Tusker Lodge. We were a bit weary at first as we booked quite last minute but were really pleasantly surprised. We turned up early but were allowed into our room and taken care of well. We had a double room with en-suite and all the facilities were amazingly clean and i felt very at home... More

We stayed at Tusker Lodge for the first time last weekend, with a group of family and friends. It lived up to all expectations, and certainly deserves its praise! Gordon and Carole are friendly and welcoming, even willing to welcome us at almost 11 at night as we'd been stuck in horrible traffic almost half the way down. The room... More
