“Don't believe everything you read”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Went to this hotel as part of a coach tour and was a little uneasy after reading the reviews on here, but we have to say we can't see what people are moaning about - yes the place does need a bit of modernisation but hey its just somewhere to eat and sleep at the end of the day, yes you could pick fault with this and that at The Burlington but we have stayed in far worse and paid a lot more for the pleasure - the room was basic but clean and the sheets and towels were pristine white, there was ample tea and coffee available and the staff were some of the best we have come across, nothing was too much trouble for them they really went the extra mile and it was so nice not to have a language barrier as you do in so many other hotels -the food was fantastic from the more than ample breakfast on offer to the choice of evening meals which were very tasty and hot and once again the staff were fantastic during service.
All in all you get what you pay for and The Burlington is excellent value for money and we would definately stay there again.

The hotel is deep on history and has many artefacts, such as the furniture and Televisions that together could gain much financial aid to help refurbishment. What more can I say- the rooms have splendid views of Torbay - or should say its brambles and broken pavings - staff are lovely food us excellent . Overall you get what you pay for , we had a good time and can't complain ....it us what you make of it ...

Went on 17th February for four nights. This hotel needs lots of refurbishment. Although it boasts a pool it was never available. Although the heating was on it felt damp in the room possibly alright in the summer. The bathroom was mouldy in the shower. You can have juice or cereal for breakfast but not both.

Plus points Food was nice, hot and waitress service. Beds comfy. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Negative points bathroom small desperately needs modernisation, no room in their to put a toilet bag, our room didn't even have a loo roll holder. Furniture in bedroom outdated and full of previously drilled holes. Leisure suit looks nice in photos but smells, paint is peeling and ceiling was leaking, sauna and steam room out of order floor tiles cracked. Changing area didn't look enticing. They closed leisure suit soon after we looked at it as the lights fused. No lifts there are a few flights of small stairs. There is entertainment but I didn't partake.

Room Tip: Might be useful to state at booking if you prefer a bath or shower in your room. Hotel is 2 star so...

our friends & myself & hubby had a coach holiday with Sunrise, we stay at this hotel the staff were Brilliant but the hotel does need some tender loving care. Lots of repairs need doing and the rooms we were in the lights went out in the evening and the rest of the rooms near us were the same only the bedside little lights work this was reported one of the staff put a small lamp on the landing where our rooms were but it was a worry for all of us as it was on the floor and was a fire rise. One of our group put the lamp on a shelf which was better. The food in the restaurant was OK I think they are on a tight budget but it could do better. It was nice to have indoor pool but the heat of the pool was over 85 which is to hot for the pool & the lights in the changing rooms were out?. The Entertainment was very good and the rooms were clean & beds comfortable.

My daughter and I have just returned from a 5 day coach holiday at The Burlington courtesy of David Urquhart Travel and we had a lovely time. From our arrival until we departed we were met by some of the most helpful staff I have ever encountered, nothing was too much trouble for them. Our bedroom was clean and warm with nice white towels and loads of tea, coffee etc. The service in the restaurant was first class with all our meals arriving at our table quickly and hot, and also served with a smile. There is a good selection of evening meals on the menu, which changes daily, and we were spoilt for choice with the breakfast selections available. The bar staff were friendly and polite, the drink prices were the cheapest I have seen in a hotel for a long time, and the entertainment every night was good. I would recommend a stay at this hotel and we will be returning later this year. Many thanks to all the staff 5* service.
