My wife and I spent six nights at the Gresham Court Hotel.
Really had a great time, Owners David and Helen were very friendly and made me and my wife very welcome, they worked really hard. Our room was pleasant, with clean linen and a lovely bed, and a really good shower.
The food were well presented, well cooked and plentiful. Table service was excellent and quick, thanks to both David and Helen, and our very attentive waitress.
Nothing seemed too much trouble, if you wanted something different for breakfast or dinner other than on the menu, it was no problem. There was a good choice each day, and the full English breakfast was was just that, plenty of tea and toast with cereal, porridge or fruit juice to start, in my opinion the whole dining experience was like that of a very good restaurant. There is a well appointed quiet lounge with comfortable chairs. The price of alcohol was not overpriced, like some Hotels.
The rooms at the front do face onto the main road, however it quietens later in the evening.
The only issue would be the few steps from the lobby to the lift, if you find steps a problem.

It is only a short walk to the town and main bus stops, so, handy for exploring the area.
Overall a very clean .comfortable and friendly Hotel, we enjoyed our stay, well the worth the money and would recommend this Hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms the front do suffer from road noise during the day.

Hotel was very clean and overall the meals were very good. The only meal that we were a bit disappointed with was on the Friday evening when we arrived, the chips and scampi were both very hard, after that though the meals could not be faulted. The owners could not do enough for you and were very friendly. On the Saturday night there was entertainment in the hotel and the singer was vey good. The drinks in the bar were reasonably priced too.

We stayed at the Greasham Court in mid April, our first floor front double room (No; 24) was well furnished with a comfortable double bed, 3-door wardrobe, 3-draw chest, 2 comfortable chairs, en-suite, with dated shower, and creaky floorboards.

The food was well cooked, and served, with a choice of menu each night. The entertainment was excellent.

The hotel runs with minimum staff, so David and Helen are always on hand to attend to any problems.

The downside was the restricted step-free areas, we traveled with a Over 60’sgroup, age range 60 – 90 and a third of the group had some degree of walking difficulty, access from reception to the small and dated lift was via a flight of steps, the lower ground floor dining room presented the same challenge.

So I give it 4 stars

What a fantastic holiday! This is our second time at the Gresham Court Hotel, and it is fabulous! David & Helen are great hosts - they cannot do enough to make your stay warm and welcoming. The hotel itself is lovely - spotlessly clean, the rooms are lovely. The bed was so comfy. The food is absolutely delicious & plentiful. Great entertainment every night. We will definitely be back & definitely recommend. It was like leaving friends, and we can't wait to visit again. Thank you for a great holiday.

Just back from 4 nights stay at The Gresham Court Hotel in Torquay. David and Helen were great hosts and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. John, our waiter, was most efficient and helpful, the best I have come across in a long while. The rooms are a little dated but are built of masonry which makes them very quiet, not like rooms where the walls are made of plasterboard and one can hear snoring from the next bedroom. Breakfast and evening meals were served in a dedicated Dining Room. Breakfasts consisted of a choice of three starters, cereal, porridge and orange juice (some guests had all three) a main course of full english breakfast, including black pudding. Tea and coffee, and as much toast and marmalade as you wanted. Evening meals consisted of three starters, two mains + three salads and three desserts, these varied everynight except the three salads. Tea and coffee were in ample supply and wine was available to purchase if required. Meals were more than adequate and empty plates taken away by the waiter. Evening enterainment was provided by our hosts.
