We spent two enjoyable nights at the Thurlestone Hotel with all of our family. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We made use of all the facilities over the 2 days and the indoor pool was very popular with the children. The service was a little slow in the restaurant but it was a very busy evening with lots...

On the basis of a one night stay in June I must heartily commend the owners of the Thurlestone. They have had it in the family since the late 1800s, which usually is a recipe for complacency and slipping standards: on the contrary this is everything you want of a quality hotel in 2014. It looked to me as if... More

Expensive hotel. However I'm happy to pay the price if quality and service match. In this case it did not. Customer service very bland, no personality to be seen anywhere. Room furnishing is worn and dated. Would have been better off booking into a Travel Lodge, would have paid a fraction of the price or less! Won't be in a... More

We have been staying at the hotel for a number of years and find the facilities good, the staff welcoming and the rooms improving. Like all large seaside hotels, peak occupancy is seasonal and so re-investment can only be gradual. The refurbishment of the bedrooms is certainly work-in-progress but those completed are very good indeed. Much improved bathrooms and attractive... More

We were staying here in a larger group and enjoyed it also for its suitability for children. The room was very comfortable and in good condition although not up to date compared with other more modern hotels. But this is not as important because you start feeling you are on vacation immediately and the staff do their best to help.... More

An excellent hotel with a great range of facilities. Bedrooms very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Very good food. Staff welcoming and helpful. I especially enjoyed the peace and quiet of the gardens during my stay this time.

My mum and I went to Thurlestone hotel for a spa afternoon and had a fabulous time. We had lunch on the terrace first and the food was excellent. Really tasty, great service and great views. The menu isn't huge, but they have it on their website so you can check it before you go. We had salads and they... More

We stayed here for 5 days as a large family goup celebrating a golden Wedding anniversary. The rooms were superb, we had a suite for us and our 2 children. Views were excellent. the food was amazing too. Great facilities with Spa and indoor pool and a heated outdoor pool. Lovely pub attached to the hotel as well.

I visit this hotel at least 4 times a year often on my own as I like to visit Kingsbridge where I grew up. I always enjoy this hotel maybe preferring it off peak. I would like to say that I am always treated well when travelling on my own and would like to especially mention Luigi the restaurant manager... More
