“Excellent Hotel and Friendly Hosts and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2011

We have just returned from a week at the Southbank. We were in the family room which is excellent value for money. The hosts, Ian and Marie were very friendly and helpful, the other staff were also very friendly.

We stayed on a bed and Breakfast basis and have no complaints about the quality of the rooms or the breakfasts.

The location of the hotel is excellent with local shops nearby, a five minute walk to the beach and probably a ten minute walk to town. There is also a road train which stops opposite the hotel and takes you into the Town.

All in all an excellent stay at this hotel and if we go back to Torquay we will be staying here.

Whow ! What a really nice five night break, really nice clean room, and everything worked, plenty of supplies of tea, coffee, and anything else you asked for. Ian & Marie really made us feel welcome and were so freindly I almost felt they were personal freinds. We had a great look at Torquay and surrounding bay's -- enjoyed every one, It was alway's nice to know we were returning in the evening to a nice place with nice people.Hope to stay again soon,

Room Tip: .I didn't here any complaints about any rooms during our stay

My partner and I stayed here back in February, while attending a dance festival at another hotel across the road. We found the rooms clean and well equipped (apart from a problem with the hot water supply, which we didnt report because we didnt mind too much and it sorted itself out day 2!). A lovely big bed (ground floor) in a room that is the right size for a couple (maybe not so for sharers). But what really made the hotel stand out was the level of service - we came in and out, all hours, and the iron found it's way to our room back and forth, back and forth for various clothing changes, with only the odd joky comment! It did mean the room was never able to be serviced which was the only down side. We were also able to bring outside food in which is always a bonus. This made it a perfect location for our activities. Just what you want from some time away from home. We will be back in september for the next festival weekender!

Everything you could want from a B&B. Warm welcome, clean and tidy rooms and a really good breakfast. Would certainly stay again.
