Reviewed 30 October 2017

Positives:
Breakfast was fantastic.
Comfortable bed
Location

Negatives:
Because we had two dogs we were put in the basement. Which was dark and had no view.
Outside steps down to basement were dirty and slippery.
We weren't told the room was in the basement when we booked.

Room Tip: Don't stay if you have dogs and you don't like basements

We've been returning to this hotel each year for a couple of nights for the past 4 years and it never fails to disappoint. Discreet, friendly hosts, lovely rooms and fabulous breakfasts. About a 15-20 minute walk from the centre of Torquay, 2 mins amble from Meadfoot Bay and close to some wonderful views from Daddyhole Plain.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel ( a last minute decision ) to celebrate a friend's birthday. We loved the location, it being a short walk from the town centre , with easy access to our chosen restaurant The Elephant. whilst allowing us to experience the luxury and grandeur of a renovated Victorian residence. We were made very welcome on arrival, and our room was large, with a very comfortable bed and excellent ensuite facilities. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with good quality produce, and the staff were attentive, and went out of their way to seat us with our friends, plus offering to top up our tea and coffee, and checking that we had everything we required. We would definitely recommend this venue, and look forward to staying again on our next visit to Torquay. A big thank you to the all the team who made our stay memorable!

We have just had the pleasure of anther enjoyable stay at The Meadfoot. This is an excellent Hotel situated close too he Meadfoot beach. We were accommodated in a Deluxe Room on the ground floor. Situated close to the Reception,Lounge,Bar and breakfast room. It is spacious well appointed and comfortable. An added new feature was a number of novels placed in the room for guests too read. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Jody who showed us to our room.here was a complementary carafe of sherry for. The room was heated very clean and tidy. Was usual the breakfast was excellent with a varied menu including a continental buffet. This Hotel is a Jewel in the Crown and we have no hesitation in recommending a stay at this Hotel. We have visited on a number of occasions and on our first morning Phil took the time to seek us out and add his welcome .

Dear Roger

It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to welcome returning guests and we count ourselves very fortunate to have had many this year, not the least of whom is yourself and Mrs B. It is lovely having familiar faces around you and for us very much adds to add to our intention of maintaining the relaxed, homely atmosphere that we try to create her at MBH. We hope we can look forward to welcoming you both again in 2018 to a newly refreshed Meadfoot Bay

Best wishes Phil, Vicky, Jody and the rest of the team

We picked The Meadfoot Bay because the reviews on Tripadvisor sounded like somewhere we could relax and chill a bit. A lovely experience in beautiful surroundings. Great suite and terrace area. You just need to be careful of the tiled floor in the bathroom as can be quite slippery.

Dear Tracey and Kevin

Bathroom floors are always a tricky one. Everybody loves the tiled finishes of the super large bathrooms in our suites, but they do come with that caveat "slippery when wet". If someone can let us know of a solution we'd love to hear it (email stay@meadfoot.com), otherwise we can only ask guests to use the shower mats provided and exercise a bit of caution. But on the bright side, we're so pleased your stay with us at Meadfoot Bay lived up to expectations. Hopefully next year if you return we'll exceed them even more...

With best wishes from all of us at MBH
