On arrival we were allocated a room. We all walked in the room and we were insulted that this room was even allowed to be used. Awful. Dreadful. Depressing. These are just a few words that spring to mind. Peeling paint and wallpaper, an old wardrobe that certainly had seen better days, all wonky. My son tried to straighten it... More

Once again had a great time at the derwent , stayed in an updated family room very comfortable. Evening entertainment ok, always lots to do. Only moan our dining room table was in an area with a very large party, service was slow between courses.

We've just returned from a 3 night mini break with family. We booked last minute and pleased to get a family room for a fairly decent price. I think it has been well documented that this hotel is part of a bigger group of hotels making up the TLH Leisure group meaning that you can use the facilities across the... More

We booked a short break at the Carlton and upon arrival we found that this hotel was in a complex of four very good hotels under the Torquay Leisure Hotels Banner. Having the use of the facilities at four quite large hotels in the complex with many leisure activities was a bonus. Whatever the weather there is always something to... More

Just back from 10 days staying here. When we opened the door to our room, I could have cried at the disappointment on my families faces. The apartment was dark, dingy and not very clean. The curtains looked like they were bought in a charity shop, the wallpaper was peeling off the wall, there were cobwebs in the corner of... More
