TLH Derwent Hotel
Ranked #21 of 85 Hotels in Torquay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 17, 2010

We have recently spent 5 days at The Derwent in September 2010. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, and the service in the dining room and the food was excellent. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is ideally situated for the sea front and the main shopping centre is within easy walking distance. There are excellent bus services to Paington, Brixham, etc., and there is a land train which stops right outside the hotel which takes you to the shopping centre. The Aztec Spa is wonderful - a real treat to help you relax, and the pool is lovely. The new Aztec Bistro is very good, and at night provides a very atmospheric area to relax with a quiet drink overlooking the pool. The entertainment is excellent, especially Kevin! He is your best asset! He provides a lot of fun and laughter. Kevin, if you're reading this, thanks for 2 lovely evenings during our stay - The Inflatables! Long may you continue to bring laughter to The Derwent!
