Stayed for a long weekend in August 2014 and the family absolutely loved it. We were disappointed we only stayed 4 nights. The public rooms are beautiful with fantastic views to boot. The private rooms are great and completely spotless. Breakfast (included!) is homemade and to die for! The hotel is just a short walk from the beach and other... More

This is, and feels, like a family-run hotel. Don't be mislead by the rather old-fashioned furniture into thinking that the comfort and service are anything but fresh. The dining room and lounge are spacious and comfortable, with a fine view over the western bay. I stayed for four weekday nights in mid August, had a comfortable double room and balcony... More

Stayed 4 nights. Really clean well run hotel. Large room. Nice bar area. Friendly staff. Good location for the beach and getting in to the harbour area. A lot of the restaurants shut early so be warned.

This is a wonderful family hotel, where they make you feel so very welcome that you relax straight away! Good location, with easy parking where you can walk to the seafront , with a cafe, boating pool, nature garden and lots to do, without getting into the car! But we also went by steam train to Greenway ( shut Mon... More

We stood two weeks in Summerhill Hotel, because we joined a langauge course at LAL Torbay. Just to get to the heart - it was perfect. The whole staff was friendly, we had a nice, quiet and clean room (WIFI was also free). The food was really good and breakfast at Summerhill was always a fantastic experience. Summerhill Hotel is...

Friendly, outgoing staff, lovely, healthy food (the sea-food dishes were absolutely delightful) and also quite important, very clean and tidy.I stayed for two weeks feeling at home every minute of it. With the beach not far away, what more can you wish. If you are not happy there, you will not be anywhere else!

We cannot believe this is only two stars. We stayed for three nights in July/August and found it to be exceptionally clean, welcoming and comfortable. Choice for breakfast and dinner very good, food hot and plentiful and well cooked. Nothing is any trouble for the Staff and our only negative comments are the lack of beer choice for husband and...

We stayed at the hotel for one night in late July in a double room with a balcony. The initial welcome was good, the room was fine and our dinner was really very nice. Sadly, the experience was let down by a very poor breakfast. Quite apart from my wife's very hard boiled eggs, I chose kippers from the menu... More
