A short stay (thank goodness) as the Hotel has no lifts but a maze of corridors and stairs! Absolute No No for anyone with disability problems, although a slow stair lift was installed on one floor. We were in the 'servants quarters' downstairs which smelt musky and mouldy! (No where else did) and at approx.12pm at night the water tank... More

From viewing the website of the Rainbow Hotel it looked great. What a disapointment when we arrived!! Miserable staff. Huge queue to book in. Bathroom seen much better days and was mostly held together with sealant. The lift.... OMG! number sequence was wrong and the door nearly decapitates you it shuts so quickly. Tried the 'carvery' on the 1st night,... More

I had always assumed that when you pay little for accommodation, you shouldn't expect too much, and having reviewed the heritage hotel in Torquay before, they always exceeded expectations of cheap and cheerful. Until I had the misfortune of booking at the rainbow, I had expected the heritage to always be a little more excellent per buck. Now I think... More

I've mentioned in a previous review that this is a cheap and cheerful hotel. This time, our room ( 436) was not as good as previous visits, but because the accommodation is so cheap I was reluctant to complain. The main problem for me was the uncomfortable bed. I've been visiting the hotel since 2008, and this particular bed was... More

I went down to this hotel on 01/08/16 to 05/08/16, with my mum and sisters family. So there was a wide age range within our group. Plus points for this place: Ample parking. Clean around the hotels main areas, and for the main, helpful friendly staff. Unfortunate negatives for this place: not much range of food ( although I will... More

After a 10 hour journey we arrived at The Rainbow International Hotel in torrential rain, which to be fair wasn't a good first impression. We were given the keys to room 118 which if you ever stay here and your given this room POINT BLANK REFUSE!!! This room was disgusting. After dragging cases around this maze we opened the door...

Hotel clean and welcoming, with efficient staff, food ranges from adequate to excellent, with reasonable choice for dinner. No table allocation, leading to some confusion when busy. Evening entertainment ranges from good to excellent. Drink prices high, but average for area. Accommodation we stayed in was room 141, which was clean and because it had four beds, suitable for two... More
