Our first stay in Torquay and a very warm and friendly hostelry, with very personable hosts. Pauline and Anthony are the new owners who make you feel very welcome indeed. They shared their plans for Court Prior with us and we are looking forward to our next visit when we travel from our home in Australia.

We very much enjoyed the warm & friendly welcome we received. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts Pauline & Anthony.Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Fantastic breakfast which included fresh fruit salad.

I stayed recently for a short holiday and would thoroughly recommend the Court Prior. The proprietors, Pauline and Anthony, were very welcoming and friendly and my room was comfortable and clean. An excellent choice of breakfast is offered - everything from a delicious fresh fruit salad for the health conscious to a hearty 'full English'. The hotel is just a... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, the location and views were something to behold. Rooms comfy & clean, service attentive and breakfast cooked just how you want it - great. Never been to the 'English Riviera' before and decided to come on a stopover to a wedding, will come back and explore more from Court Prior, thats says it all. Thanks

Me and my partner had a long weekend in this hotel and had a lovely stay. We were welcomed by the owner Anthony who was friendly and showed us to our room. Although the new owners had only been there a week they seem to be getting on very well and had some good ideas for the future of the... More

We have just had 5 days at the Court Prior Hotel. And we, too, were surprised to find that it had changed hands, since we booked just a few weeks ago. However, unlike the other guests who have reviewed it, we were very happy with our stay. The new owners couldn't do enough for us and were very friendly. It... More

We booked this B&B purely off of the good reviews from previous holidaymakers. However, upon arrival, we discovered that the owners had changed within the last week, and my word, I wonder whether this is the business for them! After being hurriedly directed to our TINY room, we discovered that the room had not been prepared properly. For example, there... More

Sadly, a ridiculous and fabricated review. On arrival you were informed that breakfast is served between 8-9am and this is also stated in our Guest Information packs. You came down for breakfast at 9.25am and although we had finished serving cooked breakfasts you were offered our usual poached fruits, fresh fruit-salad, yogurt, cereals, together with toast & preserves. We never... More
