Robinson's coach holiday - value for money. Food varied choice and good quality. Compliments to the Chef !! Trips, coach driver, staff all fine. Only thing I was disappointed in was the sauna - it wasn't working, all seats broken and the accompanying shower was disgusting and unusable. Yuk!! (I would say it was even worse than the photos already posted). The indoor pool was fine and the gym was obviously newly refurbished so maybe it will be the turn of the 'spa' area next? hope so!! Nearby Cockinton village was beautiful, the harbour/shops of Torquay were very good, bus service good and easy to use. Really enjoyed trip to Totnes too - lovely shops and architecture. Even went to a variety show in Babbacombe and really enjoyed it. Exeter Cathedral charge you £5 to enter. Any questions? please send me a message and will do my best to help

We have just returned from the Abbey Lawn hotel, and had a most enjoyable stay. The hotel had a friendly atmosphere and the food, rooms and entertainment were quite acceptable. The only slight complaint concerned the bathroom. It was quite cramped for space and lacked adequate shelving. The shower was rather awkward to operate and not easy to obtain the required temperature.

We found the management team friendly and helpful, so many thanks to them and also to Gary our young waiter who waited on 20 odd of us single handedly. All in all, a lovely holiday.

We have just returned from an 8 day holiday at this hotel and have nothing but praise for the management and staff who from the moment we arrived went out of their way to make us welcome.The food was varied and plentiful,staff efficient and helpful and housekeeping excellent. As seasoned travellers and in particular of coach holidays we would rate this hotel above average and feel that we could not have received better treatement had it been rated 5*.

My wife and I have just returned from a five day Robinson coach holiday in the Abbey Lawn Hotel and found it a very enjoyable experience. We had an excellent en suit room with a splendid view of the bay.
The menu provided a good choice of well cooked food which catered for the tastes of most people. The service in all areas of the hotel was first class. In all we found this to be a very good value for money holiday which we would recomend to anybody, but in particular to other OAPs like ourselves.

We have been prompted to write this review after reading some of other peoples comments about this hotel, surely they cannot be talking about the same place. We stayed at the Abbey Lawn hotel Torquay, with Robinsons Coach holidays, and found the hotel clean, the food exscellent and the staff and management eager to please. We had stayed there two years earlier and were quite happy to return there, but were surprised to find that the standards at the hotel had even improved since out last visit. The bedrooms were imaculately clean, even if some of the furniture was a little dated. We would have preferred the oportunity to have a slightly later breakfast than 8.30 a.m. but on a coach holiday this has to be expected,

My elderly mother booked a coach trip to this Hotel with Robinsons.
I checked on trip advisor and found some of the reviews very uncomplimentary.
I was most worried about the review which berated the managements treatment of elderly guests.
My mother is in a wheel chair and I didn't want her to be upset or made to feel unwelcome.

Our experience of the hotel was far different from many of those uncomplimentary reports.
We received a warm welcome from the staff.
Our room was clean and decoarated tastefully, it was spacious and had a lovely view of the bay.
the food was well cooked and there was a good choice.....didn't seem to be frozen veggies as was noted by another reviewer, and theroast lamb was in good thick slices...definitely not commercially bought in cooked meat.

As for the comment about Barry, the Manager.......we found that his dry sense of humour was refreshing......he spent a lunchtime chatting with us and waspleasant and helpful....as were all of the staff that we encountered

The situation of the hotel was not ideal for wheelchair users, but we managed on public transport.
We had a lovely break which was worth every penny.....even the weather wasn't too bad.
What more can you ask for in February?
