Simply *Outstanding* It is not often you come across such a gem, certainly one without any flaws. Gary and Philip really are attentive without being intrusive. Real thought care and attention has been taken with the decor and layout of the rooms, dining area and wow, The Bar! Felt like we were transported back to a 1920's Japan with that Speakeasy vibe. The suite we treated ourselves to was splendid. We will be back and recommend to our family! Breakfast top notch. I joked that Gary had arranged the Firework display on New Years Eve - but with the care and attention G&P give, you never know 👀 5/5

What a charming hotel. We booked 4 rooms for our big family holiday, all of which were tastefully decorated with lovely comfortable beds. Gary and Philip made us feel at home and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent with good quality food and an extensive choice. Will definitely stay again next time we are in Torquay 😊

I had a lovely time staying at 'The Torcroft'. Gary and Philip are great hosts. The breakfasts in the mornings were nice. It's in a very quiet area but close to the town centre and railway station. Torquay is a lovely place and staying at this hotel made things even nicer. I was very pleased with my stay here.

We stayed at the hotel for only one night, and I wished we had more time to enjoy the place. Everything was great, the host was so welcoming and helpful, suggested a few nice places and restaurants to visit and had our room ready two hours earlier of the check in time. I can’t give enough compliments to the design of the hotel, so beautiful, stylish and every space and every corner is thoughtfully decorated. The breakfast was great (omg, the breakfast room is gorgeous! Instagrammably beautiful and stylish). We stayed in a suite and the size of it, the décor, the view from the balcony, everything was so beautiful. If you are looking for a place to stay in Torquay, don’t look no more. Highly recommended. They call it B&B, I would call it a boutique hotel, it definitely is not what you expect from B&B.

We absolutely loved our stay at The Torcroft! Gary & Philip are wonderful hosts & nothing too much trouble. They went out of their way to go along with a surprise Birthday and made it extra special (Thank you!) Beautiful decor and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed having a drink with Gary at the bar and the drinks selection is second to none, with a wide selection available. The breakfast was great and catered for all (Vegans included). Very yummy! Thanks for the rounds of toast Philip 😜 Just a short stroll down to the harbour, however Gary ordered us a taxi no problem in the evening to save us a bit of time. We will absolutely return to the Torcroft and recommend to anybody staying in Torquay, couples or families! A big thank you to Minka for also making us feel so welcome 😉 Martha & the gang. X

Dear Martha - thanks so much for the fab review and all being great fun on our final night of the season! So pleased you didn't find out about the well planned surprise until you got here, and everyone had so much fun! Yes we love the bar, and it has got a wide range, particularly of local drinks too, as Devon produces so many gems - and gin is so popular!!! And Minka is doing her best to welcome guests, despite her age and ailments - and she always appreciates a mention! Fab to meet you all, thrilled it went so well, and absolutely hope you all return - you were fab! Look after yourselves, all the best Gary
