This B&B was exactly what we were looking for, we wanted somewhere local but not in the centre, reasonably priced without compromising on the quality of the room. We had a lovely big (and clean!) room that more than encompassed our needs. Tim and Sarah made us feel completely welcome and an instant rapport was established with them. Due to external circumstances, we were unable to check in until very late at night on our first evening but Tim went out of his way to help us get our hotel key to us so we didn't lose out on our first night's booking. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to somebody else.

The Parks is conveniently located near to the centre of Torquay and set in a lovely garden with parking spaces and a park next to it. There is even a pool and sun bathing area. Tim and Sarah provide a warm welcome and excellent accommodation. Our room was clean, warm and comfortable with plenty of storage space. There was a choice of everything you could wish for at breakfast inc a full English and filter coffee. Tea and coffee are provided in the rooms and there is a bar for a leisurely drink in the evening. We will definitely stay there again and will recommend it to anyone who wants quality with value for money.

Room Tip: There is a downstairs room if you have trouble with the stairs.

Loved it here. We will definitely be back. Tim and Sarah are great hosts and there's always someone to chat to over an early evening drink in the bar. Facilities are very good and the rooms are spotless. Give it a try!

My husband and I chose The Parks because of its size, we do not like large commercialised hotel chains.
Tim & Sarah made us very welcome, the room (no:6) was bright, clean and airy, a nice firm bed and plenty of wardrope and drawer space. The whole place had a feeling of friendliness and relaxation, perect for a short break or longer holiday if one is lucky enough to have the time.
There was plenty of hot water,coffee & tea making facilities (with posh biccies),hair dryer, oscillating fan and extra blankets if needed.Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, well cooked and served in a fast, efficient and very pleasant atmosphere.
A quick drink in the bar chatting to Tim rounded off pleasant days. We hope to visit again.

I visited the Parks with my parents and a friend for a weekend away and it was fantastic. Both the rooms were very spacious and clean, with a comfortable and homely feel to them. Tim and Sarah were able to provide a room with twin beds and a lovely view of the garden, which was perfect for my friend and I. We felt very welcomed by Tim and Sarah throughout the stay and were provided with tasty breakfasts and a very healthy bar. Cannot fault the accommodation or the service. The hotel is situated in a very good area, close to the station (so was perfect for travelling uni students) and only a short walk, through the pretty parts of Torquay, to get to the shops, restaurants and pubs.
Overall a fantastic weekend away and definitely hope to visit here again - Thank you!
