I stayed for 3 nights as booked by the person who organised a weekend of walking in the area. My single room was on the second floor on the Sands Road elevation. Upon entering the room it felt nice and warm and was pleasing enough to my eyes. The bathroom was very small but I am not critical of that.... More

This is the second time we have visited the Esplanade at Paignton, on the first visit we were disappointed but after paying the upgrade we were rewarded with a much better room. All the staff were very efficient and contributed to a pleasant break. We did not see much of the entertainment on Monday but Tues/Wed/Thurs were excellent. The menus... More

When we first opened the door to our room we were extremely impressed, the furniture was new, the beds had white duvets and purple throws across near the base and it looked like we were stepping into a premier inn bedroom. There was also a new flatscreen tv, a large freshly decorated bathroom and a step at the side of... More

This was our 4th. visit to this hotel and we were pleased to find the room had been re decorated in lovely colours -grey & purple-was truly nice. The only let down was the bathroom which although had been painted had odd taps on the bath and no shower. It would benefit from a shower attachment. Food excellent as usual... More

Stayed at this Hotel from 7th March till 10th, we went to watch a football match in Torquay,and I must say it was most enjoyable, the weather was an added bonus. the Hotel is basic, very clean, and the food was very good too. All in all I would recommend this Hotel to anyone wanting somewhere to stay in Torbay.
