Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The Tor Dean is a wonderful, friendly hotel. We have stayed here on a number of occasions and have never had reason to complain. The food is fresh , well cooked and varied. The Owners personally look after the guests and make meal times interesting for all guests by "breaking the ice" for some of the less extrovert/outgoing guests. They are helpful in suggesting places to visit, events on during your stay and other activities that might be of interest. The rooms are spacious and well lappointed. Parking is a little limited but space for the overspill outside the property. It is not too far from local pubs/Restaurants but far enough for them not to disturb your sleep. We have enjoyed every visit come rain or shine. Will go again I'm sure

Room Tip: Ground floor Double, No 3 is just perfect. A little noisy being close to the Kitchen but only aroun...

First time back in Torquay after 40 years, Booked in at Tor Dean at short notice, Nothing was too much trouble, from the welcoming cup of tea, to all the guides, maps and directions provided by Dave and Nicola. The room was excellent, comfortable and spotless. The breakfast choice catered for all tastes and was first class every day. We would highly recommend this hotel to stay in. Thanks Dave and Nicola, we will return. Mike and Jan.

Thank you Nicola and Dave for an enjoyable stay and making us feel so very welcome. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean . The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice, nothing was ever too much trouble . We only wish it could have been for longer.

This was our third year at Tor Dean so we knew what to expect. We were not disappointed, in that the meals are still first class, no-nonsense English cooking at its best, the rooms are so comfortable and Dave and Nicola are still the most hospitable hoteliers around. Because many of the guests have been before it is like going to a family reunion. We'll be back! Thanks very much, from Ken and Mary.

Room Tip: All as good as each other.

Mary and Ken it is always a pleasure for us to welcome you both back and thank you for your lovely review. It certainly is like meeting up with family , most of our guests seem to bump into someone they have met here before. I suppose when guests have been returning for 12 years that will happen , it is always nice for us as well as the guests.
Look after yourselves and thank you once again and we will see you next year

The Tor Dean is a fabulous place to stay in Torquay. Nicola and Dave are the perfect hosts who work well together as a team. Nothing is too much trouble, both are warm and welcoming with equal amounts of humour and professionalism! The rooms are spotlessly clean with a few little extras provided and the meals are all freshly cooked and prepared to a high standard. The breakfasts gave plenty of choice and were cooked to perfection. This is the best place to stay in Torquay, a short walk to the beach with lots of things to do.
