The location is perfect, lovely sea views and a good price too. At the reception we were greeted by a man that seems to run the place 24/7, he's either at the reception, serving breakfast, or bizarrely watching TV with a cuppa in the evenings. Seems like we live in his house, not a hotel. The floorboards everywhere are shocking,... More

This once proud hotel is but a shadow of it's former glory days. The "lets have your money now" arrival speech from the unfriendly evening porter spoke volumes and rang an alarm-bell. Although in fairness, the room had a fresh coat of paint, was reasonably clean, with towels and tea/coffee makings supplied. However, my fears about the type of clientèle... More

Located on the seafront in the Livermead area, the Waters Edge has fantastic potential, but is let down by the lack of attention to clients comfort, especially in the public areas. Receeption is gloomy, the bar poorly furnished, dark and unmanned. The restaurant has no character, but the breakfast is quite good. We went out of season immediately after the... More

Stayed for 2 awful nights, grumpy old(owner,manager?) Not very clean, old fashioned,no sleep because of the baby seagulls squealing on the flat roof outside our room. Its a no no for me. Torquay is a nice place if your over 60 but you need to find a good hotel.

Stayed here for one night whilst intending to watch a football game in Torquay, though unfortunately the only winners of the football was great British weather. This hotel has friendly and helpful staff and is situated in an excellent location being only 5 mins walk from the railway station and a further 15 mins walk along the sea front into... More

We stayed at the Waters Edge from 23 Dec 2013 until 27 Dec 2013 The room (No 28) was very clean and well maintained, two drawbacks spring to mind there was no dressing table, which I believe most ladies would consider a basic necessity, and when the heating was turned off daily from mid morning to late afternoon it was...

Spent Christmas in the Waters Edge from the 23rd December to the 27th December. The room was more than adequate, comfortable bed and a lovely sea view. The staff were really brilliant, nothing was ever too much trouble. They gave my Husband a birthday cake with happy birthday candles for his birthday on Christmas Eve. The food was really tasty...
