Visited hotel on a Shearings 5 day tour. Paid supplement for sea view room. Views superb and room comfortable, but windows were always steamed up. On the whole, the trip was excellent value for money. Restaurant staff dealt with the large numbers of people efficiently and with unfailing courtesy.

Visited this hotel on a 5 day Shearings' coach trip. Paid a little extra for a standard plus, sea view room, and thought this was excellent value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Right at the heart of beautiful Torquay, the Torbay Hotel benefits from stunning views over the lovely harbour. The hotel can be summed up as, 'grand features in warm surroundings,' and includes front-facing rooms with modern facilities - the Premier and Superior rooms are particularly desirable. It has a large ballroom, two bars, an indoor heated swimming pool and a sun terrace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the town centre's shops, boutiques and restaurants. After two years of extensive restoration Royal Terrace Gardens (aka "Rock Walk") has been returned to its former glory with a modern day twist. Located just next to the Torbay Hotel, Rock Walk offers spectacular views across the bay, and at night when it is beautifully lit up, it makes for the perfect evening stroll. ... more   less
