“I'll be going back”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

As a young solo female traveller I stayed in this hotel during the summer. I would say the following and not in any order
- great location, close to the front but easy to get to by car and train, quiet street
- lovely, clean and large single room
- brilliant breakfast - good choice and cooked well
- very accommodating hosts, bent over backwards to give local advice and even lent out maps and books to enhance the holiday experience

Lovely couple that go that extra mile to make your stay more enjoyable! Hotel close to all amenities but far enough away to have a quiet relaxing break.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone. David and Nicola provide a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere and it is like home from home. The home cooked food was wonderful with a good selection and we would definitely return again.

Wonderful place, lovely people, so hospitable. This was our first visit and we were made welcome from the moment we arrived by David and Nicola. So nice to be greated by a cup of tea. Breakfast was brilliant. As we were meeting up with friends in the evenings we only managed to have the evening meal on two occasions but it was well worth having and we only wished we could have dined there on more occasions,. Thank you David and Nicola for looking after us so well and we even enjoyed David's jokes. Will definitely book again next time we visit Torquay.

Room Tip: All rooms are of the same high quality

Dave & Nicky always give a warm friendly welcome. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the meals very tasty. I often stay at Tor Dean twice a year and occasionally three times a year.
I have also brought friends with me who alos enjoy their stay.

This is our second year staying at this hotel. David and Nicola welcome you with open arms (and a cup of tea!). The food is brilliant and the rooms are the cleanest that I've ever known, infact I've never been to a hotel where the rooms are this clean. A friendly atmosphere, and you soon make friends with the other guests as well as a couple of jokes with David. Definetely coming back next year, because of the warm hospitality and the great food. This hotel is highly recommended from us, you would not be disappointed ! :D from the Manley family. Gordon, Janet, Gavin , Heidi and Stephanie (remember David no tomatoes hehe)

Thank you Ann for taking the time to write a review,we both know you are extremely busy and appreciate it. It was great meeting you all in May for the first time and then to accommodate you again for a week in August. Both Adam and Siobhan were a pleasure and a credit to you and Alan wasn't too bad. We had such a laugh and it makes our job a pleasure. We know you will be back next year and David has asked me to order him some valium just to help him cope whilst you all visit. Joking aside ,it really was fun and we hope you enjoy what is left of the summer.
Send our Love to everyone
