“could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

stayed recently,,suggest requesting a room with a refurbished bathroom,as the old ones date back from the seventies,food ok,but quality not as good as on previous visits,.some of the staff seem quite interested in the guests,whereas others including management rather gave the impression they were doing us a favour by being there.

Room Tip: probably at the front of the hotel,definitely request room with recently modernised bathroom.

We had an excellent few days at the Toorak we had tried for weeks to up grade room but there was none available. Please when booking don,t have room 24 you look out at a brick wall and some very much need to be cleaned up concrete , so therefore we found we needed the lights on all the time which could have been brighter as you have very little natural light coming in Room 24 is on ground floor and along a long corridor my husband is a blue badge holder which means he can not walk very far, we asked for a change but couldn.t get one. When booking the room we were originally told it was on the first floor by the lift, but when we arrived we were told it was the ground floor. That is our only complaint, the Hotel is excellent very friendly , clean even though dated food excellent everyone so friendly especially in the resturant we stayed in All inclusive and it was fabulous food ....The whole resturant excelled themselves on the night of my husbands birthday even cake wine chocs and decorated table and ballon, we were taken back with it all. Entertainment was brilliant in the Derwent we went there every night, just such a shame about our bedroom, but we will I can asure you be going back there in the very near future.

Room Tip: Room on the south side to the right of the reception desk Riveria or one with your own terrace or fi...

had a another lovely long week-end last bank holiday, unfortunately couldn't get the terrace room that I required as they were all booked, but the room we had was just as spacious and spotlessly clean. shame about the view - it was a superb view across the park to the sea, but as the window was misted up in between the double glazing you had to have the window open to see the view - that was the only complaint though, as the staff are all really nice, food good and service very good, back again next year !

We stayed at this hotel for 3nights as part of a bowls tour - everyone on the staff did their utmost to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent - the rooms were always clean - in fact one of members complained that she had nothing to complain about - there is always one!.This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel - last time was for a week - and the standards have remained first class.

We chose the Toorak as it was the closest to where our Toastmasters conference was being held and it was a good choice. Free parking unlike the conference centre across the road charging £6 per day.

Found having to wait until 3.00 pm to check in a little frustrating and reception staff tended to elave you waiting whilst they finished their conversation.

Only had breakfast in restaurant but it was excellent with wide choice. Waitress called Klara was so happy and helpful.

Room was very good size unlike so many modern hotels. Bathroom was rather seventies in decor but was clean and everything functioned.

Would use hotel again if in the area

Had a great weekend at The Toorak. Excellent accommodation and facilities. Particular thanks to the attentive staff in all departments and an extra thanks to restaurant staff, Caroline and Monique. We are returning the TLH Group at the end of May for another bank holiday break - couldn't get in at The Toorak so sampling the Victoria Hotel instead. Ideal place to stay, so close to the hub of Torquay and such good shared facilities, i.e. Swimming pools, activities, spa, to name but a few. For a three star hotel we consider everything really good. Thank you.
