Another great stay at the Torbay Hotel in Torquay. Saw a lot of the regular staff and just as warm, friendly and welcoming as before.What is all this I read before my wife and I went about small portions of food? What on earth are these people talking about? Are they Fred Flintstone expecting dinosaur steaks? Or Desperate Dan with his cow pies? Portions are adequate and plentiful. They were a little short staffed in the restaurant, but in all the food was hot and tasty and my wife were in and out after three courses in under an hour...and I am a VERY slow eater always chewing my food well. I could mention so many staff by name like Anjetta(? apologies if spelt wrongly) Joanne, John, Bernadette, (and some I don't know the names of!) but as I say all too many to mention. Special mention as I am sure behind the scenes they are forgotten, Jane our room cleaner. she was pleasant and helpful. I booked again for next year as i did last year. People forget the hotel is old but as long as the food is great and the staff friendly, who cares?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Right at the heart of beautiful Torquay, the Torbay Hotel benefits from stunning views over the lovely harbour. The hotel can be summed up as, 'grand features in warm surroundings,' and includes front-facing rooms with modern facilities - the Premier and Superior rooms are particularly desirable. It has a large ballroom, two bars, an indoor heated swimming pool and a sun terrace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the town centre's shops, boutiques and restaurants. After two years of extensive restoration Royal Terrace Gardens (aka "Rock Walk") has been returned to its former glory with a modern day twist. Located just next to the Torbay Hotel, Rock Walk offers spectacular views across the bay, and at night when it is beautifully lit up, it makes for the perfect evening stroll. ... more less
