This is an excellent family run hotel situated in a quiet location with ample parking, yet just a short walk to the beach. The rooms are spotlessly clean and there is an attractive dining room, bar and lounge with sea views. Breakfast is large and beautifully cooked, as is evening dinner. We were afforded a very warm welcome and received... More

A very pleasant two night stay in this family run hotel. I booked the room 24 hours prior to our stay via Michelin. The staff really couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome in their hotel. The room, though small, was as advertised and was immaculate and appeared as if it had recently been decorated/carpeted. It was functional... More

We stayed 7 nights at the hotel and it was excellent. The rooms were clean, the food was great and the staff were really polite. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we walked through the door. There was a lovely lounge bar as well, where you could have a quiet drink in the evening if you wished.... More

Want to spend some time in the Torbay area? Need a hotel? Then look no further than the Summerhill hotel. This family run hotel really puts some 4-star hotels to shame, or when were you last presented with a pre-heated breakfast plate? It's the small things that count, and this hotel has many. Clean rooms, friendly professional staff that go... More

A very pleasant stay. Very welcoming family run hotel. Room clean and well presented. Breakfast exceptional. All this and a stones throw from the beach and amenities Would definitely return and recommend

I stopped for four nights in June as I was working at a nearby show. The hotel itself is quite nice, but probably not the best location as it's easy to get lost trying to find it! Like I did a few times! The breakfast is a bit hit and miss, so don't expect too much. I found sleep quality... More
