Stayed at this hotel for a week end October and on arrival we witnessed the best welcome we had ever received at any hotel in the UK or abroad. Gary made us tea, coffee and biscuits and took our luggage to our room without hesitation. The hotel is family run and we were made to feel so welcome every minute... More

This is a wonderful family run hotel, rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated, breakfast is also very good with much to choose from. You will not go wrong staying here for it's location along with the knowledge that the owners know how to run a hotel with a very nice balance of friendliness without being intrusive.

We recently spent five nights at the Meadfoot Bay Hotel and were so impressed. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and throughout our stay. The room was lovely, the breakfast amazing, and the location of the hotel, in a residential area just up from the harbour, meant it was very quiet. We hope to... More

From the moment we arrived for our long weekend break at the Meadfoot Bay we were made to feel welcome and comfortable.

Host very welcoming. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Choice at breakfast buffet was very extensive and the cooked breakfast was very well presented. Even though the hotel must have been close to being full the service was excellent. Great location for anyone who wishes to stay in the Meadfoot area of Torquay.

When we arrived we were greeted by Gary, who offered us a cup of tea. He showed us to our lovely room, where there was a complementary drink of sherry, I don't normally drink sherry but this was lovely. You couldn't ask for a more friendly & clean hotel to stay in. Especially as it was our wedding anniversary.

What a pleasure it was to stay at this family-run hotel. On arrival I was provided with tea and biscuits and then escorted to my room. Unfortunately, there was an issue with the shower that the owner was unaware of and so for my second night I was given the choice of two other rooms. The bed was very comfortable... More
