After reading the many reviews with regards to the Seacape Hotel, Torquay I was spurred to write one of my own. I and my husband stayed at this hotel in July 2010 with a large tour group organised by Newmarket Holidays. On arrival our bags were quickly taken to our rooms and at reception the staff gave us our keys. Dinner was at 18.30, and served downstairs, with seating arrangements of 2 or 4 people to a table. The service was fast and efficient.
The rooms at the hotel are comfortable, with tv, and en suite. We were lucky enough to have a sea view (albeit the sea was some way off). The hotel have a 'no smoking' policy in the rooms, which is an excellent idea. I understand they had a fire there some years ago and do not want a repetition! This does annoy some people especially smokers who now have to go outside. SHAME..
The hotel was built in 1856 so it is certainly not the Ritz, and does have some internal problems, as mentioned in some reviews. The squeeky floorboards, and many hallways and landings. However, firstly if you want to book your own hotel then DON'T GO ON A COACH TRIP, and secondly if you want the Hilton then pay Hilton prices.
Stop moaning and get on with your life... if you have one. Judging by some of the comments you don't have one!
The tour company we travelled with are good, not excellent. The price we paid for our holiday was fair. Even the entrance costs to the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens was included!!
On our holiday there were some downside to it, especially the coach which many found uncomfortable, with no toilet or drinks machine. The tour manager did a great job, and gave us plenty of stops to use the facilities and was very organised. He gave us loads of information about everything, so no moans there. The coach driver Terry, a gentleman who helped us enormously.
So, the Seascape Hotel, Torquay is good value for money, you must take the price into consideration for the benefits received. I have only one more gripe and that was we had to travel 2 hours to get to Cornwall....Mind you it was a pleasant trip. Thanks for reading my review. I will certainly use this hotel again if I go to Torquay.
