We stayed here last night as had a night out nearby. Very nice fixtures and fittings, clean room. We were on on the ground floor and the balcony was lovely. The room was spacious with lots of mirrors, perfect for getting ready and the bathroom was fine. It had an old fashioned feel to it but most of the hotels...

If you're looking for a luxurious break don't stay here but if you're looking for a value for money room only break then stay here!!! Of course I could point out many many improvements required but for £66 for 1 adult and 2 children you get what you pay for - highly recommended!!!

Thank you very much for your review and I'm pleased that you generally had a good time! Regarding the entertainment the majority of our guests were attending a skittles weekend and it was uneconomical for us to put entertainment on for the other half-a-dozen residents. We normally have entertainment most evenings but if this is an important part of your...

Myself and a friend{2 girls} stayed here last October and initially after seeing the reviews and the tv programme were a little concerned and I have to say that the room was a bit like a bedsit with a view facing an exterior wall of another hotel.I went to reception and they immediately offered us a move but after realising...

Thanks very much for the great review! We all have children ourselves and we're always trying to find new ideas that we could do at the hotel that we think would keep our own children active, so it sounds like we succeeded with your children at least! We look forward to seeing you again.

Had the most amazing stay at the cavendish with my wonderful partner. Staff were very accommodating with all our needs. The hotel pool indoor and outdoor were both fantastic and was in walking distance of the harbour. Will 100% stay there again.

Spent 4 days here and was really impressed. From the very large heated pool( 20c minimum) to the extremely varied menu, this Hotel did Torquay proud. You can tell its been family owned for some time, nothing was left to chance and being 70 years old, I am pretty fussy. Large car park, all lifts working, lovely rooms - mine...
