The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful with every request. The entertainment was very good too! We would definitely recommended this hotel to friends and family, and look forward to returning in the future!😊😊😊😊

Ideal position for everything, shops, walks, and bus services. The hotel is clean friendly and welcoming. Not sure about the £49 per person front facing room charge we were in room 202, because that is all it is, no view as the street is lined with trees, and the rooms are overlooked by the big wheels which operates until ten...

Stayed at this hotel and what a disaster. The only thing going for it is the location. The owners want to visit other hotels in the area and see what they are doing to keep the customers coming back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Right at the heart of beautiful Torquay, the Torbay Hotel benefits from stunning views over the lovely harbour. The hotel can be summed up as, 'grand features in warm surroundings,' and includes front-facing rooms with modern facilities - the Premier and Superior rooms are particularly desirable. It has a large ballroom, two bars, an indoor heated swimming pool and a sun terrace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the town centre's shops, boutiques and restaurants. After two years of extensive restoration Royal Terrace Gardens (aka "Rock Walk") has been returned to its former glory with a modern day twist. Located just next to the Torbay Hotel, Rock Walk offers spectacular views across the bay, and at night when it is beautifully lit up, it makes for the perfect evening stroll. ... more   less
