“Amazing Holiday Break”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I travelled to the Coppice to stay with my parents over New Year in 2012. From the first moment I entered the hotel, I was made to feel very welcome. The owners Jenny & Syd were fantastic. They both worked frantically hard to make everyone's stay comfortable and memorable. The entertainment that was put on over the festive period was fantastic (I even learned how to line dance thanks to Caz Barron and even play with an invisible deck of cards) and I couldn't have had a better new year if I tried.

I also met a lot of wonderful people, Jenny & Syd, Caz and her parents and the guests that we chatted and interacted with were also great. The hotel seems to bring everyone together and it makes you feel like you're in a place with an extended family, all relaxing and having a great time.

The food was excellent, a great selection of drinks and an indoor and outdoor pool.

Overall, it was a wonderful break. I loved every minute of my break and I would recommend The Coppice Hotel to everyone.

Thank you for a wonderful time. I will be back.

What excellent value for money. Nothing was too much trouble even with a handicapped elderly mother. Food and service just could not be faulted. Everything was spotless. Comfortable room. Brilliant and thank you to you all.

This was our second visit to the Coppice but our first one at Christmas. We find the hotel to be spotlessly clean, food excellent and the staff and owners Jenny and Sid very friendly and helpful.

Its location is a 15 minute walk to Torquay harbour and is also on a frequently served bus route.

The effort they put into making the Christmas break special was superb. Gifts in the room on arrival, a present from Santa on the table during Christmas dinner (7 course) and a full evening of quizzes and live festive entertainment.

All in all a fabulous 4 day Christmas break. Back in June, and Christmas!

Having just had a 5 day, 4 night stay at the Coppice I must state that this is up there with the best we have ever stayed at for the money we paid. The food was very good with plenty of choice, it was also well presented and served by a lovely young lady named Devon who was always pleasant. Our room was cleaned daily and clean towels were there when we got back each day. Our bed was also comfortable.Generally I am not one for hotel entertainment but I really enjoyed it here. Both Syd & Jenny were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble.Unlike some hotels we have stayed in. We hope to go back for another break in March 2013

The coppice is now my regular holiday destination. Clean, friendly and helpful in every way.
Sid & Jenny feel like extended family now. No request is too much for them, and there is a lovely atmosphere between staff and guests.

See you again soon.

We stayed at the Coppice on a 4 day 3 night "Just go" break from Friday the 12th October.
This by far was one of the best breaks we have ever had, the Coppice and ALL the staff were first rate. When the coach pulled up outside the Owner "Bubbly Jenny" boarded and straight away made us feel genuinely welcome (where does that girl get all her energy from?) the rooms were superb and cleanliness was of the highest standard, the meals were also fantastic with a wide choice always served with a smile. We had two nights entertainment which once again was faultless. Being a Yorkshireman we are known for being very careful with our pennies!! but this deal we had could not be beaten, we were also lucky with the weather, lots of sunshine. This was our first stay at the Coppice but it won't be the last, we will return whenever we can. Was there any negatives? well none at all really except as mentioned by another reviewer the sinks in the bathrooms are a bit on the big side, but hey, what does that matter.
Extremely satisfied.
