“Very good value”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Pleasant, cheerful and helpful owners. Very good breakfasts. Rooms and public areas clean and bright. Pleased that we booked one of the larger rooms. Easy to walk to town centre and restaurants. Quite steep steps to access the building.

We had a warm welcome when we arrived, parking wasnt a problem. The superior room was plenty big enough, with a massive bed!
Breakfast was also very nice, would definately stay again. Perfect location to explore surrounding areas.
Although not a problem for us the steps to the front may be a problem for some guests as tehy were very steep. However, access can be gained via the rear of the property

Room Tip: Steps to the front of the hotel may be diffcult for some guests as they were very steep

This is a brilliant hotel. Very clean throughout and very good value for money. I stay fairly regularly as often head back to Torquay to visit family and friends and have always had a good stay. Location is top notch, just a few minutes walk down the hill to the harbour. Breakfast is also very nice.

Highly recommend.

Great find. Warm and welcoming. Can't fault it. All you need in a small hotel. Steps up to front may cause a problem but rear entrance is flat when approached via back lane. Breakfast excellent and can be varied from what is shown on menu. Excellent value for money.

Booked a 7 night stay at Hotel Barton based on Trip Advisor reviews and the locality of the hotel. We are so glad we stayed here! Welcomed by Helen, who knocks up a brilliant full English breakfast btw, we felt right at home from the off. We had a great room (superior double), with a partial sea view and a massive shower. Our room was serviced every day, breakfast choices were plentiful and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Andrew was a very helpful host and shared local information and knowledge willingly. We loved how close to everything the hotel is and would definitely stay there again. Real value for money and worth every penny. Thanks to Andrew and Helen and keep on doing what you are doing cos you are definitely getting it right!

As a local taxi driver, I get to here about places to eat and stay and have always heard good comments on this hotel. And now having had to stay here my self the comments were true. Very clean hotel and room, always had got water at different times of the day. Unfortunately I was up to early for breakfast but the reviews on here say how good it is. Overall anyone I pick up looking for a hotel I will be recommending Hotel Barton for sure.
