“Beautiful!”
Reviewed October 30, 2008

On the last day of our holiday we weren't ready to go home. We were having such a nice time that I decided to book my girlfriend and I into the nearest nice looking hotel that had vacancies. We came across the Southbank hotel on the corner of Scarborough and Belgrave Road. The hotel room was quite simply the nicest I have ever stayed in! It was tastefully decorated to a high standard and had a warm cosy feel to it. The bed was comfertable with a nice throw and cushions over it to compliment it.
The tea tray was well stocked with several different types of coffee and tea with ample amounts of sugar and milk.
The bathroom was clean and tidy and the limited amount of space was utilised well. There was even a little basket containing a flannel and complimentary tolietries.
The hallways and stairs are also decorated to a very high standard and give a nice warm friendly, homely feel to the whole hotel.
At breakfast we were greeted by a nice pot of tea and a choice of toast (white or brown). We choose the full English breakfast (without balck pudding!) and it was delicious. There was 1 of each item but each was impeccably cooked. Special mention must go to the sausages - lovely!
All in all it made a very nice ending to a lovely holiday and I cannot recommend it enough. I would definately stay at this hotel when we return to Torquay and have already recommended it to family.

Stayed here in July for 2 nights. The Hotel is very well situated in the resort with good parking. The owner even suggested we leave him the carkeys so he could move the car to a better spot. The entrance area was warm and inviting with a comfortable guest lounge and cosy bar. Our room was on the top floor, bright and airy with a good view. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean, tidy and well lit. We enjoyed the hearty English Breakfast in the recently redecorated dining room on the lower ground floor, probabaly the best I have eaten in a seaside hotel/guesthouse. All in all a very enjoyable experience and the owners could not do enough to ensure we and all the other guests had a memorable stay. Excellent value for money.
