What a fantastic place, from the moment you step in the door you are greeted by a warm and friendly atmosphere. A really personal touch is applied Paula and Ray refer to you as your name and know exactly what their guest want. Would highly recommend them. Shame we had to leave this place. Tom and Tash

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
