Visited the Tor Park Hotel as part of a Shearing's 5 day break. The hotel situated in a quiet residential area is not the most impressive of buildings. However the sunny disposition of the welcoming Manager and the fast and efficient check in soon dispel any doubts. Our room number 40 was a little cramped but had a comfortable bed and plenty of storage /hangers etc. The shower and toilet were in a cubicle but the sink was fitted in the bedroom. I had two complaints, (1) There should have been a towel hook fitted close to sink and(2) the entrance door to the shower was far too small for anyone but the slimmest (not me) of people. As mentioned before in other reviews the lift is a bit ancient talking nearly a minute to climb two floors.
The restaurant is a bright and pleasant place to eat, and the entertainment room functional but with little comfortable seating, There is however an adjacent lounge with settees and armchairs.
There is a bus stop just across the road and there are frequent services to town and to Newton Abbot.
Meals were tasty, well prepared ,choices available at breakfast and Dinner, plus a lunch and takeaway menu available.
Service. One word, excellent. All staff we met, reception, waiters, bar staff, cleaners, repairmen were friendly and efficient (even under pressure).
Entertainment was enjoyable.
All in all they say you get what you pay for. You do at the Tor Park and more!!
Oh forgot, the weather was poor, but the sunshine at the hotel made up for it.
