This is a lovely traditional hotel with olde world features, but updated to a high standard. We have stayed at The Redcliffe Hotel on several previous occasions over the past 13 or so years and always had a very pleasant time. The location is superb being so close to the beach and nestled in between Brixham and Torquay with Totnes... More

Situated plum in the middle of the seafront at Paignton, with panoramic marine views of Torbay to die for, this old world charm hotel has so much to offer. The restaurant will cater for the casual visitor as well as residents, with a wide and varied menu to suit all tastes, at an affordable price. With a large conference room... More

Just spent the weekend with our dance party at the Redcliffe Hotel. It was a fantastic experience. The hotel is very "grand", with beautiful lounges looking out to sea. The Dick Frances lounge is idyllic. The room we had was a little "tired" and could have done with redecoration. It was also quite cold as the heating didn't seem to... More

Having just returned after staying for 3 nights at the Redcliffe I felt I must add a review. The hotel is situated in a lovely area on the sea front in walking distance of the pier. The staff are really committed to their jobs and nothing was ever to much trouble. The deputy manager Sandra Row was always around with... More

Yes, a truly wonderful location. It's a shame then that more isn't made of this wonderful building, once a gentleman's residence right next to the beach at Paignton. We met friends there yesterday for a bar meal. It was lovely to see them and I wouldn't want them to be hurt if they are reading this as in no way... More

Have not stayed at the Redcliffe for a few years so it was nice to return. As before we were not disappointed for our room had both a balcony and an excellent sea view. Situated right on the beach with either indoor leisure facilities, including pool, steam room and sauna or outdoor pool every taste, and weather, is accounted for.... More

We had light bite in the bar area and found both the quality and quantity of food to be excellent. Service was fast and efficient. My elderly mother even praised the prawn & shrimp platter for NOT having mayo on it, the first time something is praised for having less ingredients! Our coffee to follow was served by the pot...

We spent three weeks in The Redcliffe hotel in August (with my husband, my daughter and her boyfriend) - and we were really happy there. The location is absolutely perfect (the hotel is really by the sea - no road, no path, just the sea - and it is close to the promenade) and the views from our room, from... More

This hotel has the best location in torbay with fine sea views. It was built as a gentleman's residence and I am prepared to accept that the accomodant is of good quality. I live locally and eat here occsaionally, but my problem is that I have yet to have a decent meal here. Recently I had a bar lunch of... More
