“First Class!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A warm and friendly welcome by the fabulous hosts. Nothing was ever too much trouble. On arrival we were greeted by the offer of a cup of tea (very welcome after a long drive) and a drink for the children. Our room was well appointed, loved the heated towel rail! It was exceptionally clean and lovely and warm. Spacious shower was easy to use with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was more than delicious with a wide variety of dishes to choose from. The homemade evening meal was divine and thoroughly enjoyed my vegetarian offering. It was lovely to round off the day with a drink in the well stocked bar and enjoy a chat with our hosts. They are very knowledgeable about the area and what it has to offer. There is plenty to do in Torquay which will suit everyone and every pocket even on rainy days in the October half term! The hotel is in a good location - within walking distance of the town. We definitely "arrived as guests but left as friends"! Would recommend this hotel to any of my friends without hesitation. Look out Dave and Nicola, we will be coming back!

We decided to go away for afew days for my husbands birthday and chose Torquay. Looking on the internet we liked the look of the Tor Dean and reading the reviews decided this was the place we wanted to stay. This is a smashing little hotel with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Nice breakfast, plenty to choose from too. Very clean. There is a bar where you can enjoy a drink in the evening or you can take a bottle of wine up to your room as we did. Nicola and David are great hosts and make you feel very welcome, nothing is to much trouble for them. David even offered to take us down to the cinema in his car.We'll be returning next year but in the summertime.We really enjoyed our stay.

After arriving at the Hotel we were greeted with smile's and warmth which made me feel very welcome.Only after being inside for a minute they gave me a cup of coffee and asked how the trip down was. With the hotel being so close to the seafront i was able to walk down it looked like it was about to rain and with everything so close to the hotel i was able to escape from this. A drink in the bar in the evening was had with other guests in the bar made for a cracking atmosphere.Breakfast was superb such a large selection was amazed much better than a hotel i had stayed at recently.

This was our second visit in 5 months. Nicola and David are perfect hosts. Tor Dean is definitly a home from home without cooking and doing dishes. the rooms are spotless and well serviced. there is a well equiped hospittality tray. The breakfasts are first class and well cooked. It is only a short walk to the seafront and harbour and the shops are not far beyond. You get loads of information and advice about the area and planning trips. We would recomend the Tor Dean to everyone and will be back next year.

We had a two-night stay for a Rotary conference at the Riviera Centre, just a short walk away. The reception, care and attention by Nicola and David was exemplary, the rooms comfortable and spotless and the breakfasts excellent. If all other hotels were run this way, Trip Advisor would be out of business! Thanks once again Nicola and David.

David and Nicola were welcoming and extremely helpful hosts. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. There was a wide choice at breakfast which was well cooked each day. Despite the wet weather we enjoyed our trip to Torquay and would highly recommend The Tor Dean.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Tor Dean, and were more than pleased with the Hotel. Nicola and David made us very welcome, great hosts. Wonderful relaxed atmosphere, and home from home. Breakfasts were first class, and the rooms very clean and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble,very informative with information of surrounding area's. A lovely place to stay, is within walking distance of Torquay seafront and the shops. Arrive as guests and leave as friends. Will certainly recommend this Hotel.
