Just got back from this hotel, we went with GB Tours for five days. We can't wait to go back. Everything was perfect . We were greeted by the hotel manager, our cases were taken to our rooms while we all had tea/coffee and biscuits in the bar. Check in was done really quickly. We went up to our room... More

An excellent hotel all round, we had a first class room overlooking the sea, and a wonderful bed to sleep on. They even put in the room an Easter egg for us when we arrived which was a nice thought, The food we could not fault it, and the staff you could not fault them either the manager would come... More

Our 14th stay as a family of four adults and three teenagers. The eldest had his own room (169) for the first time and it was perfect, with everything he needed to relax and do a little studying. His bathroom was obviously newly installed and extremely attractive. Rooms 172 (Club family room) and 177 (standard double) were nearby. As always,... More

Thought we would be one small party in a full hotel, but I was wrong! The service was slick and friendly at all times. I took a tumble - not at the hotel! - and everyone was so kind and caring. The room was small, but had a pretty view and all I needed, and more. Loved the range of... More

We were warmly greeted on arrival we were 2 couples. Our rooms were executive with lovely sea views, and very comfortable. There was building work going on but it did not interfere with us. Food etc was good. The only negative for us was that the bar and surrounding area was taken over by a group and no one else... More

This was another visit to this Hotel and yet again it exceeded our expectations. On arrival we were upgraded to a Royal room, Titania room 150, a large room with an uninterrupted sea view and a bathroom that was beautifully fitted and finished. Décor was fresh and good and the bed was large and comfortable. We were given a table... More

What a lovely birthday meal we had here. Everyone was very friendly and can't commend our waiter Tomasz enough. He was very friendly and made our visit warm and welcoming. Would love to take him home with us too. He even threw i free desserts for us as we are attending later this year for a wedding reception

This was my second visit to the Headland Hotel. My stay was for 4 days. My opinion is still the same, it is a great hotel situated in a wonderful elevated position on the Headland above Torquay. The hotel is very clean and tidy, our room overlooked the gardens at the rear and was very quiet and pleasant. The food... More

We had a 3 night break here with GB Tours, the hotel was clean, the food was very good and overall it was very good. The downside was the service in the restaurant was a bit slow due to lack of staff. The room cleaner was very good, friendly and happy in her work. The coach driver Phil was very... More
