We have just got back from a lovely 3 day stay at The Red House Hotel. We actually stayed here 13 years ago having seen an advert in Teletext. We were just a young married couple then and loved the warm and friendly atmosphere so much we returned pretty much every year for long weekends. When our daughter was born, we decided to use Maxton Lodge instead and again, we have returned again and again and, in the past couple of years, more than just once a year. The best thing about the hotel is all the staff are very friendly, very welcoming and when asked for either advice about the local area or just something extra that you need to make your stay more enjoyable, they are very eager to oblige. As returning guests, we often bump into other returning guests and feel that we have an extended group of friends in Torquay. The hotel is within an easy 10 minute walk of the beach (even with a small child) and offers easy access to a wide range of very nice cafes, historic buildings and leisure facilities, as well as a nice walk to the picturesque village of Cockington. Having driven for around 4 hours to get to Torquay, it is so nice to leave the car in the hotel car park and not walk too far for entertainment. The breakfasts are lovely and there is always more toast and coffee available on request although it is usually the staff who ask if more is required. In all the rooms we have stayed in we have either had a view of the sea or been beside the outside pool. The indoor pool is always lovely and warm and although it is used as a leisure club by local people, on the whole they are generally friendly natives! Although the deep end is not as deep as it once was, owing to an accident in a nearby pool, it is still adequate for serious swimmers. There is also a bar situated next to the pool which offers bar meals which is great after a swim as you don't have to venture out if you don't need to. The bar meals are always well prepared and very filling. The bar area itself is very cosy and inviting and has a good selection of drinks at very reasonable prices. This last visit to the Red House was to celebrate my father's 70th and my daughter's 10th as well as my husband's birthday. It was really nice to share such a celebration and introduce my parents and brother and his family to the Red House. Thank you to Mark, David, Tina, Karen and all the staff for putting up with us all and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
