“lincombe hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

we stayed here for a 2 night break the care and attention by staff started before we even arrived when we had to ammend our original booking dates this was done quickly and with no fuss whatsoever, on arrival we were greeted by reception staff who asked after my daughter who was taken ill and the reason we could not go on our original date a lovely touch .we had booked a standard room but after seeing it we both agreed that there was nothing standard about it ample space tastefully decorated, and a lovely view down to torquay harbour .the room itself was also spotlessly clean with a well stocked beverage tray and little extras like a hair dryer and heated towel rail. the restaurant offered a buffet breakfast which was superb the choice was plentiful, nice hot plates and very friendly attentive staff all food was of a extremely high standard with local produce used very tasty especially the sausages the hotel is rated 3 star but we have stayed in 4 star hotels in torquay no where near lincombe hall standard cant wait to return .

This was submitted several weeks ago, but unfortunately was not published.
This was our first time at this hotel and we cannot recommend it enough.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming and always dressed smartly.
Difficulty in getting our computer on-line was no obstacle and a very helpful member of staff arrived promptly at our room, unable to fix the problem Brett the owner got involved and through their internet provider things were up and running in no time.
We were a little concerned that the hotel is on a hill and although we are both nearing 70 the short steepish walk to the town was no obstacle and the fact that there was not a lift made no difference.
We stayed in room 45 a ‘Superior room’ in the hotel annex, a large airy room with a lovely view over the manicured rear gardens.
The hotel was very clean and decorated to a high standard.
The food at breakfast and dinner was of good quality, tasty, well cooked and served on hot plates.
The restaurant service was prompt and efficient with an earlier than normal sitting being 6:15, should you have a 7:30 show in Torquay planned, although needing to be out by 7:00pm to allow enough time to walk and get seated this was a little bit of a rush.
Entertainment was excellent, a film show every night or entertainment in the lounge.
A room safe would be a nice touch (no embarrassment should a guest misplace an item).
The floor was a little creaky but this is a minor negative compared with all the positives.
All in all a very well run hotel and would we stay here again: - Definitely.

Room Tip: Room 45 in the annex was large, nice and quiet with a nice view of the garden.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Lincombe Hall. It is always nice to hear feedback from new guests and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. You'll be pleased to know the internet is now working perfectly!
As you mentioned, yes we are on a hill, however, it is an easy work down, and if you don't want the walk back up, just a few pounds in a taxi.
You suggested that room safes would be a good idea, you'll be pleased to know that we are looking into the possibility of installing a safe in every room.
Once again, thank you for your lovely review, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
Kind Regards

Visited this hotel again for evening meal, greeted with a warm friendly manager plus escorted to the Restaurant where again greeted by the Restaurant manger and staff, all who were very friendly and knowledgeable reference the menu.
Enjoy my 3 course evening meal plus the wine and then sat in the lounge to list to the excellent soloist with a mixture of songs.
Excellent hotel and meal and credit to the staff for their warm, kind, friendly manners.
Many thanks

Thank you for your lovely review. We are pleased you decided to visit us for an evening meal to sample our wonderful food, and also to enjoy the entertainment afterwards in the lounge areas. Maybe on your next visit you could stay over and enjoy our equally wonderful breakfast offering. See you again soon.

We have just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was really lovely and only a short walk from Torquay town centre but in particular the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, particularly with regard to our two young children. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely go again!
