Reviewed July 20, 2009

Having booked a week’s bed & breakfast stay at Chelston Manor, we were extremely dismayed to read a very negative review on a website. Past experiences have shown not to read too much into such reviews as they have proven to be untrue. Our room had a double bed with en-suite bath and shower. Both were clean and fluffy white hand and bath towels with complimentary toiletries were provided. The towels were changed twice in the week.

(For the person who wrote the very negative review, I would like to point out that many 4 & 5 star hotels here and abroad place a card with the towels asking their guests to consider the environment by re-using their towels. “Place on floor - dirty - please change” or Place on rail - I will re-use”. I am sure that not many of us actually change all our towels every day at home)

Chelston Manor - the Ritz it was not but nor was the price. It is a 17th century building full of charm and now a pub/restaurant and the food there was excellent. Breakfast was the usual “Full English”, cereal and juice. If anyone wanted a variation - bacon sandwich, scrambled eggs on toast etc. etc., it was not a problem. I like coffee, my husband tea - we were not given just a cup of each. We each had a pot and after 3 cups of coffee, there was still some left in the pot.

I would just like to say a big Thank You to Matt and his staff for a very enjoyable stay and would say that anyone wanting to stay in Torquay, whether for one night or a week, we would recommend Chelston Manor.

I recently organised a weekend away for a group of friends to stay at the Chelston Manor Hotel. This building has a real old world feel to it. The rooms are spotless and the staff are very friendly.

The best feature of the hotel has to be the food. The prices are what you would normally expect to pay in a pub but the choice and quality of the food is fantastic.

The bar offers a good selection of beers and wines whilst there is a games room with a pool table and dartboard.

The hotel is ideally placed in walking distance to both the Torquay sea front, town centre and the beautiful village of Cockington.

I can't wait to return in the summer and enjoy the beer garden.
