Here I go on review number 591. I had no idea when I joined Trip Adviser about 10 years ago that I would get so hooked on writing reviews but I do so because I myself have received such benefit from other people's views and opinions that it seems right to give something back to the system.

Stayed at the Bay Torbay Hotel for 4 days from 6 January. This review takes into account the cheap price of the Shearings holiday. Good points - the food is excellent especially the breakfasts.

Thanks you for your review and comments, I am surprised at your thoughts on room 100, usually one of our most requested rooms?

I have stayed in several Bay hotels, this one is good. The position makes it very convenient to walk into Town or around the harbour. As mentioned in the previous comments, the lift is very small and sometimes the food wasn't very hot. Good value for the price though. Would come again

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
