A theatre trip and overnight stay with friends was made more pleasant by a helpful, friendly staff, and a clean and comfortable room with a lovely view. The bathroom was clean and had a good shower with a large bath towel and hand towel and soap. The bed was comfortable with two pillows and even though the room was basic,... More

But... More

The room was very dated and the shower took a very very long time to get hot. the bed was rather... More

Up side to the hotel was the view from the balcony and the room was comfortable. Down side was the hotel needed up dating. Balcony was very 1970s and needed painting and work done before the season started. The hotel had a feeling of being something years ago but having gone to seed now. Apparently there had been a swimming... More

If you want a nice clean, comfortable and quiet room. With a very warm welcome,friendly and helpful manager (Samantha) and staff, easy walking distance to the beach and town centre, a good breakfast,at a price to suit most peoples pockets, then the Hotel Richmond is a must. On the other hand if you want to pay five times as much... More

We used the Hotel Richmond as a base to attend a christening in torquay.Staying on Saturday 17th may '14. We booked 2 family rooms (#19 & #25) for our family of 6. Room 25 was above 19 and both were looking onto front entrance. As it is an old building the windows are single glazed and from midnight to 4:30... More
