Do not be put off by the slightly dark appearance of both the foyer and the external walls of this hotel converted from a Victorian Gentleman's home in c1906. I must admit I had been put off in the past,but some friends of ours thankfully recommended the Redcliffe
( Incidentally,many people do admire this feature but not not to my taste).
This is a traditional seaside hotel with superb sea-views and an outstanding selection of food in a light and airy restaurant with exceptional silver service for which the hotel should be congratulated.
The hotel is a little old fashioned and the clients mature, but that is also its great strength; sadly I fit into this category and felt at home. The en-suite bedroom had a magnificent vista of Torbay and was immaculately clean if a little dated with only a standard double bed and slightly dated furniture.
The indoor swimming pool is superb with Jacuzzi and sauna-no charge!The outdoor pool is also very good with free towels. The Redcliffe is not competing with slick city hotels but it succeeds in providing great value, service and facilities for the rate charged for holiday makers who deserve to get value for money.
