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

Have stayed many times and The Headland Hotel never disappoints. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and welcoming. We have always been allocated lovely rooms, large bathrooms, well furnished and with sea views. Hotel well placed for good walks and Torquay harbour close-by.
