“Most Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

My first visit to Torquay and to the Bahamas Hotel must say that John was most helpful in advising on places to go and also where to eat in Torquay, which helpedus massively. My husband, myself and parents stayed there and were very impressed with the rooms and the excellent choices at breakfast. John and Sonia are lovely, friendly welcoming hosts and we would definitely stay at the Bahamas again.

Friendly owners John & Sonia.

Stayed for 3 nights in July 2013. This was our 2nd visit and one of the reasons for coming back was the comfortable beds. Other reviewers have mentioned the decor on entry but this did not stop us from coming back as the hotel is very clean and the rooms have been nicely refurbished.

Lovely breakfasts and a couple of choices.

Not far from Torre Beach.

Room Tip: We were in room one on the ground foor. As there was an heatwave this was a good choice as the room...

This was our first stay in Torquay for 43 years. It was a fairly late booking for a 7 day holiday but it turned out to be a good choice as we would certainly stay at The Bahamas again if we return to the area. The owners were friendly and served up a great breakfast with plenty of choice. Comfortable, very clean room. It was ideally located, with the sea front only 5 minutes walk away. First impressions of the hotel outside and entrance are a bit shabby and dark and could do with some decorating to come up to the standard of the rooms.

Room Tip: Room 10 was the Premier Double Room overlooking the front and was an excellent choice for us with pl...

Having returned from short stay at the Bahamas hotel very nice friendly staff .The two rooms we had were very nice and clean much better than recent stay in a large upmarket well known hotel, breakfast was excellent , good location. The only down side are the first impressions of the hotel a bit shabby and dark could with decorating etc .
We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to anybody.

This was our first stay in Torquay, but will certainly stay at The Bahamas again if we return to the area. It was ideally located, with the sea front only 5 minutes walk away.
The owners were very friendly and attentive.
We only had a light breakfast each day but could not help overhearing the compliments given by the other residents.
We spent 3 nights here and the room was extremely comfortable, very clean and very quiet. Well done

This is a basic B&B in Torquay. The room we had was very nice however the on-suit was very dated. We were in room 1 which was on the ground floor and was in the shade of the house all day long which was really good as we were there in a very hot week, However the only smoking area was just outside our window so very time someone when out for a smoke it all bellowed in through our open window so would suggest not taking this room and I would think the room next door which was room 2.

Room Tip: not room 1 or 2 smoke comes in from smoking area outside

Having just returned from a weekend at the Bahamas hotel Torquay I must say that first impresions were not the best as we walked in to reception area the carpet had seen better days and smelt musty.............

Good Points: Very welcoming,excelent location (5 mins walk to sea front),room bedding towels bathroom very clean and presentable , breakfast was an excellent choice of cereal,fresh fruit,full english etc etc, and the cost was reasonable for the location.

If your looking for a reasonable priced hotel that wont break the bank with a nice clean comfotable bed and good food you wont go wrong with this one .

Torquay on the other hand could do with some serious updates, looking very shabby.
