“Lovely stuff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2008

I stayed in Maxton Lodge 10 with my wife and two children, this lodge was to a nice standard with sea views. The lodge had plently of room for my family and was a very comfortable stay. Food was excellent and there seems to be good improvments since my last visit the manager also informed me there will be a new resturant and bar in the summer so look forward to returning. Over all this hotel is a very nice stay with helpful staff and great facilities would recommend to all.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2008

A nice welcome - I was allowed to check in a bit early because my room happened to be ready, and was then given a tour of the amenities, which include a small pool, gym, sauna and hot tub.

The hotel is a large, red Victorian house situated about a 5-10 minute walk (depending on your speed!) from the seafront and station.

My room was tucked in away in the attic, and although fairly small, it was very quiet. It was also clean, warm and the decor was contemporary and fresh.

The staff are very friendly and were happy to accomodate a request for an early breakfast (substantial and good).

  • Liked — Clean, quiet room and friendly staff
  • Disliked — Located on a sloping road, and perhaps not good for mobility impaired

Booked a two bedroom apartment, to sleep 5 people.
lounge was not big enough to swing a cat!! kitchen was even
smaller, bedrooms were shabby,small,and dull. Furnishings
poor. Told this apartment had been refurbished (poor effort).
No. 10.
Hotel facilities average, staff helpful, Food in bar/lounge good
Restaurant basic and very dated.
Nice weather, but won't be returning to maxton apartments.

Just had a fantastic week in the apartments next to the hotel. All of the staff were really friendly and helpful. The apartment was modern, clean and well equipped.
The indoor and outdoor pool are lovely and the food served in the hotel was very good and reasonably priced.
Overall would definately go back again and would recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing break in a very lovely part of Torquay.
Very dog friendly!!
