We arrived in Torquay quite late in the evening on Sunday 29th July.
We thought we wouldn't have a problem finding a nice hotel with a good last minute rate. After trying several hotels that were quite old fashioned and refusing to budge on their rate at 8-9pm in the evening, we happened upon Lincombe Hall. It looked from the outside that it would probably be as expensive as the rest but decided to try.
As a reservations manager myself I was very impressed with the receptionist that evening. She was very lovely, friendly, and approachable. She gave us a very good rate and choice of rooms.
The room we had (51) was lovely. Beautifully decorated, clean and with a large bathroom.
The hotel has recently had a big refurbishment and they have done a good job.
We didn't spend enough time there to experience much of the hotel.
The only suggestion I would have is that the hot breakfast would be better cooked to order. A hot buffet breakfast is never the best however I can see why it's done in a large hotel. It was adequate though.
We saw some special offers on the desk for a three night stay which looked like very good value for money.
This hotel is definitely worth a look if you want good value and clean, modern rooms.
Thank you especially to the receptionist that evening who checked us in. I didn't catch her name but she did her job very well.
