We arrived on Saturday afternoon to a warm welcome at check in, I was directed to the indoor car park after unloading the luggage at the drop off point. The car park is only small but having the bike I soon found a space. We were offered help with our luggage and soon found our room (331) it's a good... More

In need of refurbishment. The public areas were ok, but as soon as you leave the lobby it becomes clear that it's been a while since money was spent on the bedrooms. The compact doubles we were originally allocated (414 and 324) were grubby and the beds unbelievably uncomfortable, cracked hand basin and lots of dust on skirting boards. The... More

The Good. The staff (apparently mostly East European) were generally excellent. Smart, polite, cheerful, courteous and helpful. The Bad. I paid for a double room with a sea-view, and my mother occupied another similar room. In short; I expected more for the price. The room was generally a bit tatty, accesses by an old-fashioned key and the balcony (though in... More

We often visited Torquay and always said one day we will stay in the Grand Hotel. This week we did. Upon arrival the receptionist was cheerful and efficient. I booked a sea view room and we were on the second floor. The room was fairly large with plenty of storage space, good welcome tray, bathroom was ok. The room had... More

The location of The Grand was perfect being opposite the train station and on Torquay seafront. Very friendly welcome from reception staff. Our party of 4arrived early but staff readily agreed to store our luggage until our suite, The Prince William, was ready enabling us to explore the hotel & surroundings. The suite was well furnished,very clean & offered fabulous... More

We have just returned home a thee night stay 17th-20th September at the Grand Hotel Torquay , it is certainly iconic and still very Grand. We found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly. We decided to eat in the Brassiere which turned out to be, much to our amusement, like a sketch from faulty towers. People around... More

Very excited about finally staying at the Grand after previously visiting Torquay and enjoying other hotels. The booking itself was easy, hotel staff very nice. I ordered some packages in advanced which they had stored me. Very thoughtful email was sent to me in advanced asking if I have any queries etc. On the arrival the receptionist was very pleasant...

We had a two night weekend in this hotel. The hotel is not so much grand, but tired and in need of a little TLC. Check in was fairly quick (once the computers had sorted themselves out!!) Our room on the first floor was disappointing... we paid extra money for a sea view, but what we actually got was a... More
