This is how a hotel should be run. Lovely friendly staff who are happy to help with anything and everything. Beautiful rooms with the comfiest bed I have slept in. You couldn't ask for a better location with amazing views - all from the warmth of the hotel on a cold day.

Just returned from a 5 day stay at this lovely hotel with our rambling group. My husband and I had stayed before, and on that occasion paid for a sea view room. This time we decided to stay "Standard". The room was smaller than we expected. Not enough space between the bottom of the bed and the shower room door,... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for two nights from 24 April to meet up with family. We were upgraded to a very pleasant and comfortable room. The bathroom was huge and very well appointed. All staff we came into contact with were friendly, polite and helpful. The only thing that spoilt our stay was the evening meal... More

Yet another great 4 . nights at the Headland hotel in Torquay. Our 6 course evening dinners this time were exemplary to say the least. No disruption whatsoever to the guests whilst the new extension is being completed. Booked for June for our third visit this year. . .

Cannot comment on staying at this hotel as we attended it for a wedding. The setting was excellent. The food at the main reception was superb and the service excellent at night there was a buffet which again was excellent and plentiful. The staff were brilliant one even pushed my sister in her wheelchair to where they were taking pictures.... More

We have just returned from a long weekend at this lovely hotel. It is situated on Daddyhole Plain with spectacular sea views. the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The rooms very clean and comfortable and a excellent 6 course menu in the evening. A real must for any "Walkers" for lovely coastal walk to the harbour!

The room with a sea view was great and all staff were very friendly , keeping the smiles on their faces although under pressure from a wedding party on the Saturday.Tomas and his waiting staff gave us an excellent service .The food...
