“Great food and rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for one night for our anniversary and the room was beautiful. Spacious, well decorated and had a spa bath which was awesome. Tv in the bathroom which looked like a mirror was pretty cool as well. Reception staff were all really nice and friendly.
Had dinner in the restaurant which was really nice. There was a hair on my plate but when I said to Will who was our waiter, it was took away and a full new dinner made really quickly. The manager came over and apologised which was nice and we ended up with two free drinks. All the restaurant staff were again very nice and helpful. We went into the bar for drinks after dinner and it was really busy. Wasn't too much problem getting served though and the staff seemed to handle the queues well. Properly mixed cocktails were a nice bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

Lovely rooms, very high spec. Slept really well until we could hear everyone's door banging shut in the morning who were either leaving or going for breakfast, then another door that squeaked all the way until it banged shut too. That was the only down side as all the staff in the hotel were lovely and friendly, great atmosphere in the bar / restaurant and the food was great too. Something needs to be done about the banging and squeaky doors though. I meant to tell the staff upon checking out but it slipped my mind at the time.

We held my daughter's wedding at The Torrance. The' Wedding Package' included Marriage ceremony and wedding reception with a number of guests in booked rooms. The organisation by the event management team was First Class and the service by Dining and Bar Staff was way beyond expectation. Staff were always on hand to deal with any situation that arose and always with a smile.
I would suggest that the competence must be a massive boost to the 'Torrance's' reputation. The Bridal Suite with its spa was awesome and many guests wanted a tour of its facilities, gratefully granted by the bride.
I would highly recommend this venue to couples searching a quality location for their wedding day.

Went to the restaurant last night with 2 friends for dinner. All ordered from the 2 Course Menu for £10.95 - lovely choice - expected ok hotel food but was delighted with quality of food. We all had different starters which were all lovely but all had the same main course, salmon with noodles - quite delicious - worth returning again for very soon. Also the staff are extremely friendly but also professional and you can tell they care about what they are doing. Best meal I have had in ages and at a fantastic price.

We stayed at this hotel for a family celebration and really enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely, very newly refurbished, the staff were without exception friendly and efficient and the food was very good- especially the breakfast. We ate dinner as part of a large family group ranging in age from 4-80 and the restaurant staff were unfailingly patient, efficient and helpful even though the restaurant was extremely busy.

What a special hotel this is, I could write on here all night about this hotel.

I have stayed in hundreds of hotels in the UK and without a shadow of doubt this is the BEST one I have ever stayed in.

Let's begin

Reception, very welcoming and the staff were excellent polite and very keen to help.
Fantastic service.

Now the room, Incredible every thing you could imagine and more, the room was very spacious very clean and really high spec.

Restaraunt, the food is outstanding, and once again the service was second to non.

Breakfast was also excellent and so much to offer.

Value this hotel does not charge enough for what you get, I would have been happy to pay double what I paid.

I will be staying here again

Well done to everyone

Room Tip: Great value
