“A lovely relaxing place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2011

We stayed in the family room for 7 nights back in August and really enjoyed our stay. Whilst the hotel 'rule book' waiting in our room was a bit daunting, the reality was that Gary and Ann were extremely welcoming hosts, always ready to have a chat or give advice about the area, and the atmosphere was friendly and charming throughout our stay.

Breakfast was great, the bed was comfortable, walking distance to the beach, and with a bit of help from Google maps, we could easily walk to/from the town centre, meaning we could leave the car at the hotel when going out for a meal. What more could you ask?

The hotel is situated on a fairly busy road, so as our bedroom faced the road, you could hear the traffic, but it wasn't loud enough to keep us awake at night. Other very minor gripes would be that the en suite toilet wasn't 100% spotless when we arrived (I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to things like that), and the parking was a bit snug when the hotel was full. All in all though, very glad we chose the Brandize and we are seriously considering coming back again in 2012.

p.s. Thanks for the loan of the buckets and spades :-)

Just got back from a three day break in Torquay. The stay at the Brandize made it a great break. Hospitality brilliant, Garee was a fantastic host really friendly nothing too much trouble. The room was brilliant i wanted to bring the bed home with me as it was so comfortable, if you stay there ask for the Cockington room, really home from home comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good with a good choice. Will be reccomending this to our family and friends. Hope too go back there again real soon.

Garee was a great host, his knowledge of local facilites was great, and his breakfasts were great, nothing was too much trouble. Comfortable bed and lovely clean room all to a great standard. Excellent place to stay will go back again.

we stayed over the augest bank holiday weekend, the room was small and en suite was cramed into the coner of the room with wash basin actualy in the room, in the morning breakfast was ok and service was good, our room was never cleaned the whole weekend, tea coffee was not replenished, the bar was not opened once during our stay here , so over all not the best place for us to stay

Having just returned from a three night stay at The Brandize, i thought i should comment on a most enjoyable break.
Upon arrival we were greeted by our host Garee,who gave us a quick tour round and showed us to our room.There was plenty of off road parking,which is a nice bonus.
The rooms are comfortable,well appointed and clean.Tv, tea and coffee making facilites, clock radio, hairdryer etc.
Bathrooms clean and roomy which makes a nice change.
Breakfast was an enjoyable affair,you make your selection the night before,stating your desired time and choice for your breakfast,then leave your selection sheet on the reception desk.We found this to be very practical,it ensured you got what you want and when you wanted it and offered a good choice.
Garee was always on hand for a chat or to give advice on attractions and local eating houses.
All in all a very enjoyable stay,would we stay here again? Yes no problem.
Would have given it more than 5 but that was the highest score we could give.

My husband and I stayed at the Brandize in Avenue Road, Torquay for two nights in the family room. Ann and Garee are entirely hospitable and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean, tidy and spacious - a must for families with young children. Thank you.
