Arrived at the hotel and got parked easily as it has got a long driveway with ample space. We were greeted by John with a very warm welcoming and he took time to talk to us about places of interest and things to do which we thought was a very nice touch. He gave us some leaflets and a map... More

The Bahamas Hotel is a lovely family run hotel with bags of style. We have been going to The Bahamas Hotel in Torquay since the current owners, John and Sonia, took over - about 7 years ago and always find a warm welcome there. Over the years we have also seen the hotel rooms gradually being refurbished to a boutique... More

Friendly owners John & Sonia. Stayed for 3 nights in July 2013. This was our 2nd visit and one of the reasons for coming back was the comfortable beds. Other reviewers have mentioned the decor on entry but this did not stop us from coming back as the hotel is very clean and the rooms have been nicely refurbished. Lovely... More

This was our first stay in Torquay for 43 years. It was a fairly late booking for a 7 day holiday but it turned out to be a good choice as we would certainly stay at The Bahamas again if we return to the area. The owners were friendly and served up a great breakfast with plenty of choice. Comfortable,... More

This was our first stay in Torquay, but will certainly stay at The Bahamas again if we return to the area. It was ideally located, with the sea front only 5 minutes walk away. The owners were very friendly and attentive. We only had a light breakfast each day but could not help overhearing the compliments given by the other... More

This is a basic B&B in Torquay. The room we had was very nice however the on-suit was very dated. We were in room 1 which was on the ground floor and was in the shade of the house all day long which was really good as we were there in a very hot week, However the only smoking area... More
