Stayed for 2 nights mid week at the end of August in a family room. Hosts were exceptionally helpful, particularly regarding local attractions, buses, etc. Lovely breakfast, comfortable beds and nicely decorated room. Minor points re the shower, did run hot and cold, and my son was disappointed that the hot chocolate and biscuits were not replenished on day two....

Thanks for taking time to review us we are always grateful. Paula & I are pleased you found Grosvenor House clean and comfortable, and enjoyed the breakfast selection. We have had the shower professionally checked, and all does seem to be working fine, so unfortunately can't put our finger on why you might have experienced problems. Thanks for bringing it...

We stayed here for 5 nights and right from the beginning to the end of our holiday we found Ray and Paula a welcoming helpful couple. Our room was very comfortable especially the king size bed. Breakfast was very hearty and we literally didn't need anything else to eat all day. Considering Ray and Paula have been in the business...

Thanks for ypur feedback, and room tip. Rooms to the back of the hotel are the quietest, although Falkland Road is not the busiest in Torquay, so traffic noise, especially overnight is fairly minmal. Thanks for the shower feedback... most are earmarked for some kind of overhaul during the winter season, as part of what we intend to be a...

Unfortunately we were able to stay only one night in Torquay...we could easily have stayed a week here. Ray and Paula were wonderful hosts and looked after us well. The cooked breakfast was superb. Ray also gave us some valuable advice when we left heading north...there were a number of traffic issues to avoid. We'll be back one day!

Paula and Ray were so friendly and welcoming our room was absolutely spotless. We enjoyed a few drinks in the bar before our night out where Paula pointed us in the direction of places to eat and visit. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Paula and Ray to anyone we are already arranging our next visit

Nice rooms in footwalk distance to the center and harbour but the main reasons to pic this place again are the two owners. Paula and Ray are the frendliest people you will ever meet. One example: We wanted to go to a propper sunday roast (not touristy), next morning we had a hand written note in front of our door...

Grosvenor House is situated in a quiet but central Torquay location, just behind the newly restored Torre Abbey, in the stunning English Riviera on the beautiful South Devon coast. From the many Guest Houses, Hotels and B&B accommodation in Torquay, we are in one of the best positions as a base to see Torquay and the English Riviera. Under new ownership in 2015, Paula and Ray are bringing their many years experience with overseas holiday rentals to the English Riviera. So whether you have stayed at Grosvenor House before, will be visiting for the first time, or have never adventured in the Riviera, we extend a warm welcome. ... more   less
