This was a disgusting and deceiving hotel. The pictures on the website look nothing like the real thing. Broken objects in room, not cleaned propwrly, stinks and is clogged at all sinks and showers so smells of only sewage. We asked to change rooms over 4 times and finally moved us to a executive room after the 4th change. The...

Visited on a four day National Holidays package, which formed the bulk of the clientele. This was our "second choice" as our first (to St Ives) didn't run, and having read the mixed reviews we were a little uncertain if we'd made the right decision. I've been on many short breaks over the years, but this hotel is one of...

We stayed for two nights and found the hotel to be excellent. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The restaurant was basic but the food was well cooked and there was plenty of it, both at breakfast and the evening meal. The bar was a nice place to relax with a drink the staff were happy to help as...

The Trecarn was booked as part of a National Holidays trip and if you was to do the same you will be aware from the off you aren’t going to be booking some high class 5 star hotel, you are paying a bargain price for a bargain holiday and the hotels tend to reflect this. First off thanks to Phil...

Just returned from a Caledonian Travel (National Holidays) 4 night stay. First impressions were good with a clean characterful facade. Booking in was painless. We were on the ground floor behind the restaurant, My initial thought about the room was the odour. I soon realised that it was from the sealant in the brand new toilet suite. The whole room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in its own grounds in a quiet residential area, the Trecarn hotel is just a short stroll from the Babbacombe Downs and the delightful village of St Marychurch. The ground floor public areas of the hotel were the subject of an extensive refurbishment which has been very well received by our guests. The hotel now benefits from well-appointed lounge areas, large entertainment suite and bar. The restaurant has been completely re-styled and now offers a spacious and contemporary dining experience. After enjoying the renowned entertainments the hotel has to offer, you should also sleep better than ever as we have also refurbished 62 of the hotel's bedrooms! The Trecarn Hotel is ideally placed for exploring the surrounding area of Torbay and the delightful South Devon Coast. There is an excellent bus service taking you to town centre and beyond. ... more   less
