Just returned from a short weekend break at the Water Edge Hotel in Torquay, the hotel is situated at the far end of the bay and if you have a forward facing room the view is just fantastic out across the sea. The Hotel was great value, the rooms were clean with tea and coffee on hand, comfy beds and... More

stayed for 1 night , check in was good as was room , nice view of the sea . Breakfast was probably the best we have had from a budget hotel. This is a very good hotel with very friendly and helpful staff in a lovely position.

Brilliant hotel, lovely guy behind reception who helps out. The parking is not the best during busy periods, but is not a major problem. Room is very standard but is great value and a good base. Good location, 5 minute walk to Torquay. Would stay again

Stays here for one night (25/07/2015) with my partner and two friends. Greeted on arrival by pleasant receptionist who was very helpful. Rooms were basic but clean. Beds comfy. Location of hotel is ideal right on the seafront and only 15-20 walk from town. Owner likes to watch his tele in room next to reception but he is nice enough... More

A very Basic Hotel, but ideal if your on a budget. Breakfast was ok but not the best, the room was very hot with no fans so we found it very stuffy but I will say the guy who worked there was very nice and was always available if needed. Unfortunately we stayed there under the impression we had free... More

A little tired and dated, it could do with a little modernisation but ok for its price tag. The room and ensuite were clean although the mattress was rather uncomfortable. The £5 breakfast hit the spot. The staff were friendly and helpful. A short walk to marina meaning it's in an ideal location.

Excellent value for money. Staff were friendly and the facilities were clean. The rooms were a little dated but served their purpose nonetheless. The £5 breakfast hit the spot perfectly. My only gripe was my O2 3/4g's coverage was very poor in the area although the hotel's wifi was available but in their lounge room only. What more do you... More

Basic yet clean and comfy bed, was on overnight stop over. We had a lovely sea-view, and the breakfast was fantastic , especially for £5. You couldn't buy a full English, with cereal and toast and tea or coffee along with juice anywhere else for £5. Waters edge would be a fab stay, for those on a budget.
