I chose the Southbank Hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were visiting the Torquay area for a very special event that our daughter was participating in and were anxious that everything was perfect for the occasion. We could not have been more impressed with the Southbank and the owners Ian and Marie. From start to finish they ensured that our... More

Very clean great rooms and wonderful location. Only minutes from the beach and a very pleasant walk along the front to the town centre. Where you will find all your favourite shops and great places to eat. I would recommend this hotel for your perfect stay in Torquay.

The proprietors Ian and Marie are friendly and helpful, the room we stayed in was immaculate, beautifully decorated with all the facilities you could wish for on holiday, and I must say the king sized bed in our room was the most comfortable I have come across. The breakfast menu was extensive and faultless, made all the better by being... More

I recently stayed here with my husband and had a very pleasant stay, the rooms are immaculate and the beds are the best I have slept in when away from home, the couple who run it are very sociable and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms have some lovely extra's such as Fruit tea's, bottled water and chocolate drinks.... More

Ian & Marie - the proprietors of The Southbank Hotel, are the best thing about the place. But in this day & age - there has to me more on offer than a friendly face. This Hotel displays 4 stars on its website and board, but is nearer 2 star IMO. The breakfasts were 4 star though!
