My wife and I recently travelled to Torquay for a family birthday party and a week with the family of our youngest daughters in laws , who had never been to England before. Our stay was the second week of June this year , and the weather was in the 30,s every day.
Some may think it strange that I should mention the weather , but let me explain. We all love the
sun or so we say , but as the temperature rises the more we seem to become pickey,niggled and
in some cases very rude indeed.
So when I tell you that I never once heard a single a complaint from a guest , or from a member of staff the whole week we were there , you can appreciate the level of service and professionalism that the staff were affording the guests , it was amongst the very best that I have seen anywhere .
Hotel wise , the room was a little on the small side but was very well appointed with an excellent level of comfort and cleanliness . The view from the window was looking to the east over the hills at the back and toward a small town, not a sea view perhaps , but a beautiful one never the less.
Our stay was booked as half board so that we were able to choose whether we wanted to eat there or in town a few nights. Well I can tell you now , the food is worth the trip back to the hotel from wherever you may be, not only is it excellent quality , but with all the choices , and so many courses, you are left wondering how they do it for so little money. We were both extremely impressed with the breakfast and dinner menu's . The staff in the restaurant we very professional. But more friendly and smiley than just there to do a job, they made us feel as though we were old friends, and that is the hardest skill of all.
So all in all an excellent stay at the headland hotel with a beautiful lounge area, lovely dining room, excellent staff and prices that are amongst the best in town. And Torquay ain;t bad either. we stayed in room 184.
