Sadly we only got to stay at Robin Hill for one night en route to elsewhere. We were very warmly greeted by Jack. Our room was lovely, very comfortable, huge bed, great shower, large towels! All immaculately clean! Breakfast was perfect and definitely set us up for the rest of the day. I wish all the family well with the... More

On approaching this hotel it looks impressive..BUT. The driveway is very steep and narrow --the turning point at the top is always blocked by the owners vehicles, so you have to reverse down the drive -- not easy in the dark and rain with a wall on one side and cars on the other. Room was ok. but no hot... More

Dear Traveller I'm not entirely sure why you have written this review almost 11 months after your visit. Indeed had we known of your problems when you were here it's entirely possible that things could have been addressed, as it is I can't even think of when all these problems might have come together.

This is an Edwardian property with traditional levels of service and hospitality offering a lovely location not far from the harbour in Torquay. The Mead family understand how to look after their guests to give you the feeling of being part of an extended family rather than merely guests. The beds are comfy and the breakfast sets you up nicely... More

Once we arrived for the first time, the initial impression was that the hotel looked a bit dated and worn on the outside. Once we entered however we were greeted with a friendly member of staff (the owner or his son?) who showed us to our room and offered to help with luggage - this was very welcoming. The room...

Dear Traveller Very many thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you didn't decide to review 'the book by its cover'. Since buying the hotel we have had a constant programme of repair and refurbishment. Internally all the bathrooms and bedrooms have now been brought up to date and after about 15 years of neglect...

We were made welcome from the start to the finish of our stay. This is a family run hotel and most of the staff appear to be family members. Our Room number 6 was very pleasant being spacious and well decorated. There is a most comfortable and well decorated lounge for the use of guests.The barman was excellent. There is... More

We had a lovely time , family and friendly run b&b. The rooms were very clean, nicely decorated and modern. James was the perfect host. Breakfast was an enjoyable experence, all the things you could wish for. The outside is in need of decoration but that is being taken care of as we speak. We had a fabulous stay.

We stayed for four nights in the Robin Hill. We had chosen this place because it is on walking distance from the harbor, and because it offers free parking. The building as well as the whole interior offer a very traditional English look, which we loved. This place has a very lovely atmosphere. It is family run, and that you... More

Just one night. Comfy bed, good sized room, very nice en-suite, lovely hosts and a great full English breakfast. The room cost £103 (superior room), we felt maybe £20 over priced but a very good location being within 5 minutes walk of Torquay harbour. Attention to detail on the cleaning required as a couple of areas not up to scratch... More
