to give a poor rating because their food has been smashing. Up until a few weeks ago (April ish?) you could get a fabulous lunch deal here which for two discerning ladies made a lovely finish to a morning's shopping in Torquay. BUT, I discovered yesterday you can now only get a sandwich or a panini at lunch time, which... More

When I went for evening meal on both nights I was only offered the daily table d'hôte menu which was adequate but not fantastic, I would have preferred a bigger choice that was offered by the a la carte menu. The staff were multi tasking, running the bar as well, and you could see the stress kicking in, I decided... More

I would like to take this opportunity to thank The Hotel Gleneagles, Torquay for what I can only describe as one of the best dining experiences ever! I have travelled extensively around the UK, Europe and Asia, but in total honesty The Gleneagles is really up there on the overall scale. Firstly, I would like to compliment the manager and... More

Basil's is within the hotel, so dined here two days out of three, definitely a good choice. Smiling staff delivered delicious food, plates were cleaned with the honey glazed sausage on champ, and the seafood linguini, highly recommended.

Excellent modern venue with panoramic sea views from the tastefully arranged conservatory. We have enjoyed a very good home made Sunday roast and the Wednesday Steak Night when we were served with beautifully presented tasty tender meat. The reasonably priced Australian house wine was served at just the right temperature too. Offers excellent value for home made food in very... More
