“Very good catering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2011

I had a wonderful stay, the owners Nigel and Angela were always there to help. The owners were very polite. I also felt that the cooking was to an excelent standard, it was on time, served well and tasted delicious. I would recomend this guest house to everyone. Thank you for a great stay

We found the hotel was only 10 mins walk from the train station which was a great start and when we got to the hotel we were welcomed at once and then shown to our room. The room was clean and tidy with an en-suite and the size really was perfect for us. Once we put suitcases out of the way we went to check out the local area and found that everything really was just on the doorstep (without being so close that it was noisey in any way) Once back at hotel we were welcomed back and able to sit in the bar with a nice drink and relax before bed. Once up at breakfast we were greeted downstairs and got to choose from a large selection of very tasty breakfast options that were always very delicious,then we were ready to start the day,it was always lovely to come back after an action packed day to find that room had been cleaned for you aswell. Overall Torquay was full of lovely things to do and very nice friendly people and it was made extra special by the brilliant hotel we stayed at made so welcoming by Nigel and Angela, We definately wont think twice about where to stay when we come back to Torquay and are actually looking forward to seeing them again. Thankyou.

We spent 2 nights at Grosvenor House in July 2010. Facilities were more than adequate and the B&B was very clean. Breakfasts were great and Nigel & Angela were very friendly and welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble for them.

This was a 4 star aa rated hotel,how the aa approved this i would never know it was more like a 2 star, the towels in the room were not changed once in the week we were there.
And we had one evening meal at eighteen pound each which was soup or juice,pie or fish(which was only enough for a child) frozen veg end potatoes then ice cream or tin fruit followed by coffee would you have more than one evening meal there we did'nt, and breakfast when you asked for extra toast or tea they were not very happy,once i had poached egg on toast they give two eggs with one round of toast so i asked for two toast one for each egg you would think i had asked for gold,
In fact we came away a day early and headed up to blackpool , I have not been to Torquey for over twenty years and was looking forward to it,but it was spoilt by this,also it
says nothing in there advert that there hotel is up a very steep hill which i think you should know.

Adequate off-road private parking immediately adjacent to the Hotel & easily accessible at any time during our stay. Freshly decorated to a high standard both internally and externally with double glazing throughout. Informal friendly atmosphere providing high levels of service at all times from the hosts Agela & Nigel. Hearty & varied menu ensured a variety of choices were available and nothing being too much trouble. Super location fairly close to the sea front and near to Torre Abbey. Bar available together with choice of evening meals if required.

Stayed for one night at this guest house with husband and son. Good size room although in need of updating big time!!! Old beds with honey pine headboards and chintzy curtains. Couldnt sleep at all on terrible cheap mattress! Room had a musty smell to it. We wanted to experience a b&b after many years of staying in hotels..........wouldnt stay in a b&b again!!!
Although owners seemed friendly didnt stay long enough to comment.
