A great find. Trafalgar House is spotlessly clean, the rooms beautifully furnished and decorated, and the hosts are extremely helpful when it comes to finding your way about Torquay if you are new to the area. The breakfasts were delicious, with everything you could wish for. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and would thoroughly recommend it.

The Trafalgar was beautiful and the hosts were welcoming. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely, calm, relaxed atmosphere. We were in room 7. It was exceptional. Definitely tell everyone we know. If you are going to Torquay you need to try the Trafalgar. We are going back. Thanks Barbara and Graham our short break was lovely

A very friendly and helpful couple run this hotel. From the start you are made welcome and when I stumped the host with a question about Teignmouth pier he went off and found the answer for me.i suspect that helpfulness is typical of both hosts. The room was spotless with good facilities and the breakfasts delicious. Very nice stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Trafalgar House is perfectly located on the English Riviera in Torquay, so as to be within easily walking distance of the Marina, Harbour, town and coast, yet being set 700 metres away in a calm, tree lined road it is a wonderful place to come back to after an active day. Guests can relax in the sub-tropical garden or in the guest lounge with a glass of wine. Recently fully refurbished all the rooms and open guest areas are tastefully decorated, light, bright and airy. We are very proud of the breakfasts which offer a large choice of freshly prepared fruit, cereals, youghurts and fruit juice, followed by a wide menu selection of cooked breakfasts or continental choices. We are perfectly located so guests can enjoy the many sites and activities in the area:- Coastal walks are stunning, National Trust properties: Coleton Fishacre, Greenway Mansion and Killerton are all only a short drive away. Dartmoor National Park is also within 30 minutes. Boat Trips, Steam Railway trips, Caverns and a coastline of world renown, Cockington, Dartmouth and Totnes great places to visit as well as many other Devon villages. Golf, Bowls, Crazy golf and tennis are all available within 600 metres. There are many many more things to do and places to visit. We are also fortunate to have a vast range of excellent restaurants in the town and surrounding areas. We are very happy to make helpful suggestions based on what you would like to do to get the most from the time you spend with us. We look forward to welcoming you to Trafalgar House. ... more   less
