Only stayed for one night, but wish I had stayed for a few more. The room was fantastic and the welcome we got was absolutely brilliant. Would definitely recommend to everyone travelling to Torquay and will be staying again the next time I'm there. The rooms were really comfortable, with plenty of space and the breakfast was wonderful. Well worth the trip and the price was really good.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights whilst attending a friends wedding

+ the hotel caters for single people ŵithout a single supplement & meant I could stay at a hotel alone for the same price as my friends who are coupled up
+ there were plenty of single rooms available
+ hotel was a good standard for a 2 star hotel
+ rooms were a good size
+ wifi available in the communal areas & easy to get online
+ welcoming staff
+ allowed me to check in late
+ accommodating to a friend who hadn't been checked into his room in time

- rooms could have been cleaner, there were several wood louse & the room was musty, not great for asthmatics such as myself, but a problem you get in a lot of uk hotels
- shower in single room was quite small, but was powerful enough & good temperature
- I had two awful nights sleep at this hotel due to the noisy elderly couple in the room next door. I didn't raise this with the hotel as this was due to the other guests and the nature of the guests in the hotel who were from an older generation, shouting at each other from very early in the morning.
- when leaving one of the proprietors was quite rude & abrupt with other members of my group, I had booked & paid for my room in advance, however my friends had reserved several rooms as a group & only paid a deposit. The proprietor was insisting they pay for the room as a group rather than per room per couple which they wanted to do. Considering the hotel was making money from each of the rooms, I believe she was just being lazy in not wanting to deal with a payment per room. I found her manner at this time rude & abrupt, however she did apologies later & allow the party to pay per room
- when wanting to sit with my friends at breakfast the waitresses were not accommodating even though there several tables & all it took was to switch room numbers on the table
- I was interrupted several times by the housekeeping when trying to get ready for the wedding even though I said I didn't need the bed turned down etc

The hotel is a good standard for a 2 star hotel

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor, the ground floor is noisier

I have to say what a great team at the Seabury Hotel.
Attention to the customers with a smile!
A family run hotel with family values. I can not fault it.
I would happily recommend it to my family and friends.
Torquay is a beautiful place to stay and explore.

Me and my friend have just got back from a 4 day break at the Seabury Hotel. We arrived earlier than expected so we were told to go to our rooms to freshen up and her son and grandson would bring our siutcases to our rooms. We all met in the bar for 5.30 so they could welcome us properly and tell us a bit more about the area. We then went in to have our food which was Mushroom soup for starters then for main we had Chicken pie which were both lovely. I would most definatly recommend the hotel to my friends and family and would love to go back next august. The daughter was very helpful in giving us directions for the Zoo she also took time out of her busy day to help plan the bus route for us.

Room Tip: We stayed in a twin room with 2 single beds at the front of the house it was a lovely room very quie...

We have just returned from a 5 day break at the Seabury, our coach driver was Andrew from Laser travel who went out of his way to ensure we saw as much as possible. Babs and her family gave us such a warm welcome. The hotel was spotless, the food was first class - I am the fussiest eater ever and the choice on offer was very varied with home cooked food. The entertainment was brilliant and the swimming pool was lovely, I swam early every morning and in the afternoon. I highly recommend staying at the Seabury, you will feel that you are staying with friends.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room which was ideal for disabled access.
