Very friendly hotel. Dated but full of character. Staff could not be more accomodating. Have stayed a number of times now and it is my favourite hotel for the money in Torquay. Wil be back soon. Chris.

We must be honest and admit that this was a late booking, and The Cavendish was the closest we could find to what we were looking for by way of location and cost. We expected to find an older hotel that has seen better days, now mostly used by coach parties and families, and this is exactly what we found.... More

A hostel would have been 5 stars compared to this. I wasn't expecting to much from this after seeing the TV programme on channel 4. The room smelt of disinfectant, creaky floor boards, peeling wallpaper, dirty hand rails, rubbish under the bed, bathroom was clean although Lino on the floor was torn, the room would have been suffice as a...

Wow, what a state this hotel is in. As we were sat in the bar area we got dripped on from the ceiling above... Called the bar staff over to show them, we were expecting a shocked look, but got told it was "standard" for this hotel! No apology that my head was dripping wet and a hazard for the... More

I don't know if I've ever been told that the restaurant is full so we're 'not offering food in the bar' despite staging a kid's disco at the time- Rubbish! Room was vile, shower was super hot or super cold. Beds uncomfortable and sash windows on a family room 3 floors up could have proved fatal! Sort it out Cavendish... More

We stayed two nights for a cricket trip, the hotel were very accommodating to us, we had a great meal organised for us one evening and the wait staff worked late, they were all lovely and helpful. They are clearly trying to modernise the Cavendish, there was decorating improvements happening whilst we were there. Significant improvements to bathrooms still need... More

Me, my partner and our two young children stayed in this hotel on 13-14 August and would highly recommend staying here. Especially if you are a family. We stayed in room 8 and it was perfect. The room was very spacious, very clean and not at all dated as mentioned in other reviews. The staff were extremely polite and helpful.... More

Sat by the pool having a cuppa while I write this. Yes we've checked out.... but we are just relaxing for half more hour before setting off in the car again... & that's the type of place this hotel is. Actually there is something oddly special about the Cavendish but only if you are prepared to not expect the Hilton.... More

the hotel is very tired and needs a revamp, the hotel room was basic we were a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children, the outdoor space for the kids was great and the outside pool was good with a little spa pool included in the main outdoor pool, which was a lot warmer than being in main pool,...
