“Lovely friendly hotel, close to sea and town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stayed here for 7 nights in August, the owner is very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much. The breakfasts are good, and cooked to order. It was good value for money. The room was mostly clean ( we had a bed where you could see underneath and there was a few wrappers but we asked for this to be cleaned and it was done straight away no fuss) the rooms are a nice size, bathroom consisted of a shower, sink toilet and mirror.

Stayed at the Hudson for 2 nights from 30th August. Ample, secure parking less than 4 minutes walk away. Perfect location to all we wanted to see in Torquay. Room (3) very clean, bed comfy, bathroom clean. ok, as in previous reviews, TV screen was small, however, we didn't come away to watch TV so not an issue! I don't even think we turned it on! Room cleaned every day and towels changed. Free WiFi. Breakfast AMAZING! (included in room price). Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg was epic! Traditional cooked breakfast too which was equally as lovely. Top location and lovely owner who was very attentive and friendly and couldn't do enough to help you. Would we stay here again? Most definitely. Would we look for a different hotel to stay in Torquay? No point, this is perfect.

Room Tip: Room 3 had a wonderful view out of the bay window. Very comfy bed.

I spend 2 night at The Hudson and found this to be a pleasant stay.

Firstly a very warm welcome on my arrival and this was the same for the rest of my stay.

The room was great and had excellent space for me, it was very cleaning with a great view.

The breakfast was great and very fresh.

Very close to the Harbour and the town.

Was also impressed that without asking I was offered to leave my bags at the hotel as check out was at 10am and my train was at 2.30pm to which I like to thank the owner.

I could mot fault this guest house and I'm hope to return for a longer stay next year.

this is a very friendly, modern hotel, offering good food, excellent choice of menu and reasonable and affordable prices. Situated within a stones throw of the central shopping area restaurants and the main harbour, having good sea views and quiet position

very friendly staff, nice clean room, and modern. Breakfast was yummy. so close to harbour, shops, everything. for parking you pay20£ for a card, in a car park up the road , but get your money back when you go really gd.because parking in torquay is a nightmare. you pay everywhere.we stayed for two nights in middle of august.

I shall not be coming back to hotel Hudson again. The hotel was dirty with cobwebs everywhere and it smelt strongly of damp! The breakfast was average! Parking is at the back of the hotel after you've climbed some steep steps (quite dangerous) but there is only space for three cars to park there unless you're given a permit to a seperate carpark which is quite a walk with heavy lugage! Overall hotel hudson was a huge disapointment and it is definitely NOT worth 4 stars!

This review looks very much like another member of the family that stayed here recently as per previous review headed "very poor customer service etc etc".....May I ask who the hotel inspector is, if its Mrs Polizi I would like to have a word with her!!

We booked the hotel on Booking.com as we saw it was "gay friendly". It proved to be an excellent choice. The proprietor (Brian) was very welcoming, the room was comfortable spacious and above all comfortable and clean. Breakfast could not be faulted. Above all excellent but beware the steps up to the hotel are difficult and there is not a hand rail all the way. Also there is no lift in the hotel. If you enjoy mountaineering an excellent choice - so close to the centre and parking is easily arranged
