“lovely and close to town”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Really enjoyed our stay at the Yardley manor hotel, nice a neat room clean and had everything that we needed. The shower in the En-suite was really great could not of asked for better.
Breakfast was great in the morning and not too early either nice choice and well cooked.
The bed was nice and comfy would of liked to take it home with us. The room was nice and clean. We would defo stay again. Only thing I would say is that the compact room with that size bed is a little tight would be good to get round both sides of the bed, but that wasn't really a big deal. And lacking on the plugs.

Stayed with my partner for one night over bank holiday weekend.
Allowed to check in early which was good and saved leaving all the stuff in the car. check in very quick and soon in the room. Room was large and clean with a sea view ( which had paid for ).

Bed was comfy and bathroom had a shower and was clean. Bottled water in room and tea and coffee.

Had a pint in the bar in the evening which has a pool table and tv's

Beakfast was good and overall enjoyed our brief stay in Torquay.

Living in Torquay we tend to get a lot of visitors all year round. How lucky we are to have the Yardley Manor on our doorstep. It is always a worry when you recommend a place to friends or family but the Yardley has never disappointed. Not only are they very reasonably priced but a fantastic down to earth family who run a super hotel. No, it's not the Ritz, but it is amazing value for money. Once again I had call to book family in last week to the Yardley and they were thrilled with their stay. The hotel apparently was full but they said the breakfasts were gorgeous and they slept like a top in the comfortable bedrooms. The bonus is the little bar they call the Griffin open to non residents. Cosy and friendly with good choice on tap, Pool table, Darts and great atmosphere from the locals. My friends and family love it so well done Yardley. Keep up the good work!

My long standing friend of 45 years sadly mentioned that his 92 year old Mother had died and the funeral was on the 21st February.I managed to reserve a bedroom with breakfast at the Yardley Manor Hotel, Museum Road, Torquay. Not the best reasons to visit Torquay, but the Proprietors Mr & Mrs Thorogood and staff went out of their way to make my stay so enjoyable under the circumstances. I can well recommend this Hotel. After all I was a Purser/ Purser Catering on a Liner in charge of 1000 plus passengers, so I know what my standards are. I can without doubt recommend this Hotel which is only about 600 yards from the sea.

Room Tip: Ask. The added advantage is there is ample parking places. There is also the "Griffin" Ba...

Booked what we thought was a 3* hotel but turned out to be the worst type of B&B ever! No-one at reception and had to ring a bell for service. Only saving grace of the room was the huge bed. None of the windows would actually lock and outside one window was scaffolding and paint (paint fumes did penetrate into the room during the night) and the other window had a lovely crack in it. Bathroom was absolutely freezing. Toilet seat was not secure and you had to be careful sitting down. No bath mat on the floor so you stood on a cold floor getting out of the shower. No room service, no restaurant. Breakfast was appalling! No green tea available. Tinned tomatoes instead of fresh and the plate was swimming in liquid from tomatoes. Sausage was not cooked properly. Cereal was from tupperware container. No yoghurts and coffee tasted like dishwater. If I could give this "hotel" a zero rating I would. Will never go back there again and would not recommend to anyone. BAD, BAD, BAD!!!!

Myself and my partner were booked into the Yardley Manor over the weekend just gone. I have to be honest I was a little worried after booking and reading some of the past reviews. All I can say is I'll never take negative reviews too seriously again! Hotel was great! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was lovely, nicely cooked and it's appearence was appetising. Room was a compact double with en-suit, even though it was "compact" it was a nicely sized room, freshly decorated with clean bedding and clean facilties. Shower was powerful and water was hot even when other rooms were using theirs. TV and freeview available in the room with great reception. There was also an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe for use. Kettle also available and stocks of tea, coffee and milk etc were replenished daily. The location was brilliant, probably roughly a 5 minute walk to the harbour and main town. Will definitely be booking to stay here again next time we visit Torquay. This hotel topped off a lovely weekend!
