“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have just returned from a three-night stay in The Meadfoot Bay Hotel. I can confirm the other reviews here of a friendly well-run family hotel as being absolutely right. Our de-luxe room was almost the biggest we have ever stayed in and the room and en-suite were fitted to a very high standard. Breakfast is from a large buffet choice and the cooked breakfasts are very substantial.

It would have helped us somewhat if breakfast had been available from 8am or earlier, but I am an early riser and other people may not be bothered by this.

Having stayed in many Torquay hotels we wanted to be near mead foot beach and centre of Torquay. This hotel is ideally situated, immaculate with great rooms. The breakfast choice was to die for. I couldn't find fault with much but if i had to the breakfast time of 8.30am was a little late for us early birds, and the dodgy tv remote was a bit frustrating, overall though an excellently run hotel with a nice family feel. Definitely worth A stay!!

Having seen the many positive reviews for the Meadfoot Bay I was delighted to find them fully justified. This is a real gem of a hotel that gets everything just right. From the small personal touches such as welcoming drinks to the high standards of the rooms and facilities including flat screen Tv,DVD player,complementary WI-FI and in-room safes everything was just perfect for my needs. My parents and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of August and required the use of the ground floor deluxe room with wet room. This was done to a stunning standard. The family were very welcoming and friendly and made staying here a pleasure. Breakfast was fantastic with a wonderful choice of options! To top things off the hotel is located on very leafy road only a short walk down to the sea and offers a very quiet nights sleep. This is a very elegant and understated hotel and deserves every glowing review it receives. I would definitely stay here again.

After searching through numerous hotels and not having a lot of luck my daughter suggested that we try using trip advisor. Well I have to tell you that it was the best thing we did.
My husband and I wanted a hotel that could provide good service, was clean and had good food. This was to be our first break as a couple for a number of years. Well I can tell you that if you are reading this look no further. This hotel is amazing! It is exactly as described by all the other excellent reviews you see. The place is so clean that you could walk around barefoot.
We were welcomed by Chris with a drink when we arrived and he left us to enjoy this before booking in. My husband had booked and requested a room without having to climb too many stairs as I had recently had a knee operation. This is exactly what we received.
I must mention the breakfast that was provided and thank Caroline who cooked an amazing breakfast every morning and the rest of the buffet breakfast left us spoilt for choice. If you book try the homemade muesli and artistic yogurts!
In the evening we made use of the small bar that was provided for residents. Gary was the perfect host and was a mind of information on the best eating places around. By the way if you read this Gary the fish and chips at Babbacombe were great!
Thank you once again and we will be back!!

P.S. Congratulations on your latest 5 star rating for food we spotted on the door which was awarded while we were residents. Very well deserved!

My fiance and I just had a lovely weekend at the Meadfoot Bay Hotel over the August Bank holiday weekend. The room was nicely decorated and welcoming, the bathroom was immaculate and breakfast was delicious! The small touches didn't go unnoticed either: a small welcome bottle of sherry in our room, two new bottles of water left for us every afternoon, two clean and comfortable bathrobes for our use, and a freshly hoovered room every day. The hotel is close enough to walk into town and far enough away from all the street noise (very quiet sleep indeed!). Also, do yourself a huge favour and make sure you take advantage of their morning breakfast! You are offered a buffet of food to choose from and/or a hot cooked full English if desired. Trust me, you won't find anything nearly as good with the same variety in town. We had a great time in Torquay. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone!!

Room Tip: I trust all rooms at the Meadfoot Bay are to great standard.

We have had another wonderful (but short unfortunately) stay in this establishment.
The Family are so welcoming to the tired traveler - a refreshing drink is immediately
to hand. The rooms are delightful, relaxing and, of course, spotlessly clean and up
to date.
The breakfast selection was excellent and varied, as usual, and served with a smile.
I shouldn't really be saying all this because it was difficult enough to get a reservation
as, understandably, it's very popular. However, if you can't book online it's always
worth giving them a call we've found. Oh yes and April/May are good months to enjoy
Torquay (I've lived there so know) - there is so much to see and do. Great! Thanks
again Meadfoot Bay Hotel - we'll be back!

Room Tip: Book early and each of the rooms we have stayed in have been excellent and a good night's sleep...

We stayed for 3 nights and strongly recommend this family run hotel. The Waters family are really helpful and customer focussed and recommended 3 superb restaurants. The bar and living area are beautifully furnished. We booked a suite with a terrace and it exceeded our expectations. Even if you do not have a terrace there are two available to guest. As well as free wifi in each bedroom there is computer in the reception area. The quality and choice at breakfast was superb. The majority of guest that we spoke to were repeat visitors and we will definitely visit Meadfoot Bay hotel again
