We went through an online booking system and booked for two adults and a child. On arrival we booked in and went up to our room but no child's bed was available. The receptionist Tina and Nigel were very helpful and kind. All was sorted. As the weather was glorious on arrival and there was plenty to see and do... More

My wife and I could only spare the time to book for one night at this hotel, but we will be back. The receptionist who welcomed us also happened to be the deputy manager. She could not have been more pleasant, even offering us a complimentary upgrade - just because the room had become available, during an otherwise very busy... More

Having stayed at the Redcliffe Hotel for many years, we can honestly say that we have enjoyed the experience every time. Situated between Brixham and Torquay it is ideally placed for excursions around the Torbay area. The hotel is somewhat dated in places, however you soon come to realise that this just adds to quaint charm of the building. This... More

We ended up staying at the redcliffe for one night by chance. Having checked out of a truly awful hotel - the Imperial - which I have written a review of separately, we happened to get rooms at the redcliffe. The service was excellent, five star in our opinion, from the first point of contact with Kate at reception to... More

Car parking is free which makes a nice change. This hotel is traditional in the best possible way. What makes this hotel is the friendly, helpful staff. The food is good.... More

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside & yes I did like staying at the Redcliffe Hotel. The location must be the best in Torbay , right on the seafront in the centre of the bay, the views were tremendous, especially from the dining room & the large terrace. The thing that never failed to make me smile... More

My husband and I have just come back from a 4 day stay. The Hotel stands right on the waters edge. My husband is disabled and the service we got was great. All the staff were friendly and could not help (when required) enough. We were allocated a room which had sea views towards Torquay from one window and along... More
