From the moment Jenny the owner of this delightful hotel stepped on our coach to welcome us to the minute she waved us off 5 days later, everything was how one would like every hotel to be. Everyone on the coach agreed with this which is unusual to have pleased all. My wife and I cannot wait to return in the autumn, clean well appointed rooms, lovely food and a smile from the staff all day long, just what you want.

Room Tip: We booked a double but allocated a twin which was quickly changed on arrival so check your booking.

We have just arrived back home following a 5 Day break at this hotel. Excellent facilities, room was bright and clean and well serviced. Food and menus were varied and good quality and always piping hot. Staff were very helpful. I swam in the indoor pool each day.Disapointed with the price of the wine @ £13.50. Overall very good.

My wife and myself have just spent a wonderful week at the coppice hotel. This is the first time we had stayed and the owners and staff made us extremely welcome. The food was very good indeed and the room was super. We also really enjoyed the nightly entertainment and have just re-booked for Christmas and New Year. Well done Jenny and Syd (The owners) From Doreen and Bill Howson,Cheshire

Once again I have stayed at the Coppice. I am a coach driver and I took 38 passengers to stay for 3 nights and not one complaint, The owners and staff go out of their way to help you. Good food. The rooms are clean and bright. This hotel should have a higher rating.

Whenever we vist Torquay The Coppice Hotel is first on our list, the family have just returned from a 3 night stay, and like other times it has been a most enjoyable stay.
Much of the time during the weekend we were visited by members of our family who live in the Torquay area, they were always welcomed with a friendly greeting by the staff, nothing is too much trouble for Syd, Jenny and their staff, even serving drinks and snacks to the poolside.
The rooms are big, clean and airy, Large size bathroom, plenty of hot water the tea tray has ample tea bags, coffee, hot chocklate, full and semi skimed milk, plenty of sugar.
Once again it was a successful, happy and enjoyable weekend.

My family and I have just returned from our fourth stay at The Coppice Hotel and once again we were well accommodated and well looked after. As a former Manager of a London three star hotel I fail to see why The Coppice doesn't have a higher rating! We always have an enjoyable stay here, the hotel is well located on the Babbacombe Road with easy transport links to the seafront (although this is a brilliant walk if you feel up to it). The rooms and public areas are super-clean (my Mum is a bit obsessive about cleanliness and wouldn't stay anywhere that wasn't up to her standard!). The food is well cooked and presented and there is plenty of it and the night-time entertainment is professional and always enjoyable.
There is a really nice atmosphere around the hotel and we have always found Syd, Jenny and their staff to be friendly and most helpful with local information, booking taxis and advice on getting around the area.
This stay was the first time I had visited an hotel with my new Guide Dog and I'm happy to report that Dot was not only welcomed by the staff and owners but also became a bit of a celebrity among the other guests. We were allocated a room on the ground floor which meant that I could take her out to spend a penny without the unnecessary negotation of stairs first thing in the morning or late at night.
Whenever we stay at The Coppice our family from around the area come to visit, and they are always welcomed even thought they're not staying at the hotel. We've been given a seperate area on a couple of occasions so that we're not disturbing other guests. This suits us and is an example of the hotel's owners going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure they meet their guests needs.
In summary I would recommend the Coppice Hotel to anyone who wishes to stay in Torbay, it's clean, friendly, has great facilities and represents good value for money
