Excellent stay

Me and my partner stayed here over the weekend. The location of the hotel is superb, it overlooks the sea and harbour, and takes only 5-10minute walk to reach all that Torquay has to offer. The hotel itself was very clean, staff was polite and the breakfast selection and quality was outstanding. I would recommend this hotel to anybody and will be booking another stay here soon (but for longer), thanks alpha rooms

Wonderful and very relaxing

Kim & Simon Buxton. We have stayed in many Barcelo Hotels in Europe and this was of the same high standard, we had a sea view with sun beds on the balcony, so relaxing. Room was very clean and plenty of tea @ coffee. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was fab, plenty too choose from. We will go back there for another short stay in the future.

The best thing about my stay was...

We were upgraded to a sea view room, what a fantastic view.
