“Another great holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

My family and I love coming to TLH and this was our 4th visit. We stayed in the Carlton Hotel which was as usual, very nice. The facilities at TLH are brilliant. A lot of the complex is based around an Aztec theme, which includes the amazing pools, which I had fun in every time and the lovely aztec bistro, which served delicious food and drinks. The arena games complex was brill. The arcade games were quite cheap to play on and the 10 pin bowling was a good price. The entertainment was good. We really enjoyed doing the quiz and bingo. The evening entertainment was ok, but I think it needs to vary a bit, because they had the same entertainer 3 times during our stay. I had a great holiday again here and will definitely be coming back. To improve though, I think a water slide in the pool may be nice, a bigger variety of entertainment, some new games in Arena Games and better security at entrances to things because it's very easy to get in to things like the pool without being a member or a resident.

First came here in 1983 as a child and been coming back time and time again with my own children. Ive seen the facilities grow and grow over the years and my kids love the place and cant wait to come back. The staff are great and very friendly and i cant fault the food at all. The facilities are being improved and updated all the time. (remember the hotels are open all year, give them a chance to improve and update as i guess its pretty hard to do the work whilst still remaining open and not causing sum inconveniance).I cant believe sum of the reviews that people put on this site. What do u people want? End of the day its very family orientated here and if its something more upmarket that u want then my message to you is stay somewhere else.

But wont be staying again

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am sorry that some complimentary items seem to have been missed from your room during your stay. The Toorak food offering is usually regarded as very high quality. We will use your feedback to improve on our dining experience. We have obviously got the service wrong on this occasion as efficiency has come across as rushed and this is not our intention. Again thank you for your review. We do hope you decide to visit our complex again. Kindest regards

We wanted a cheap few nights away over half term with our four year old and picked TLH. We were nicely surprised at how pleasant our stay was! The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The facilities were very good and very convenient. The pools were fun, although by the end of the day the floors could definitely do with a clean! The inclusive dinner was acceptable, definitely plentiful, and our four year old loved getting his own dinner from the children's buffet. The stars of the show have to be the staff - enthusiastic, pleasant, polite, helpful and cheerful without exception. Will definitely consider going back if I am looking for a few days in or around Torquay.

Room Tip: Away from reception or stairwells

We have been to this hotel several times now. We have two children aged between 3 and 5 and I love the fact that this hotel allows them to attend their childrens entertainment without us being present during the evenings to give us well needed ADULT TIME. The pools are excellent and food good. Good value all round.

We spent a weekend at the Toorak. We had a disabled room on the ground floor near the reception. When we saw our room we thought we woulod have no sleep from the guests going back to their rooms but we were woken up more by the staff as their door was almost opposite and they did not seem to realise that talking outside might wake their guests so i would check this if you need a ground floor room. The food for the xmas party was better than last year but the breakfast was a bit hit and miss, poor quality and not always cooked well but there is plenty of cereal and toast etc so you have plenty to eat.All in all this is a large complex of hotels and you have access to all the facilities, the xmas weekends are one of the cheapest so with a good group of people a great weekend.

Room Tip: Watch the disabled rooms
