    Superb

    We had a very enjoyable stay here. The room was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Even though it was a standard twin and overlooked the railway, we were never disturbed by the noise of the trains etc and slept well. The room was a great size and the bathroom was very large too. Although we were on a b&b basis, we ate at the hotel each night and the food was excellent and if you wanted a slight variation, the staff were more than happy to help. I would definitely recommend this hotel for it's rooms, food and staff - shame it's not nearer to my home to visit again.

    Nice tidy room at a controllable temperature unlike some hotels that are like a sauna.

    The Hotel Garage as they call it really is a dump and needs rebuilding. Rain was dripping in while unloading which makes for an unpleasant start to our stay.

    i have stayed in a few hotels in torquay and this was one of the best the location was excellent,the indoor pool was great, and we were made very welcome.just a shame i did not get to sleep in the bed.(spent the night in the bar drinking till 7am) i will stay at this hotel again next time i am down that way.my thanks to the night porter who looked after us all night with drinks even though he was trying to get ready for the next day. we stayed one night monday 23rd of august.food i did not have dinner but breakfast was good.

    i think for the size of the hotel the bar at this time of the year needed to have more tills so the staff did not have to wait to use the one that was in.

    Its location

    The bathroom!!! Specifically on 2 issues: 1) It was in dire need of an major modernisation (no miser tap on the hand washbasin). 2) The shower was not only extremely difficult to turn on & off, it also would not maintain a constant heat.

    The situation is perfect. A lovely walk along the front to Torquay (with an all important loo halfway along). Frequent buses outside the hotel into Torquay. Staff always pleasant and helpful. This was our sixth or seventh stay. Even though our room did not have a view, it was large and comfortable.

    We were b&b and asked if the hotel would do a deal over dinner for a couple of nights. They were quite intransigent that it was £30 for 3 courses. We have always had dinner at some point in the past and feel that perhaps The Grand may lose out in not offering a deal to residents over dinner on a couple of occasions. It is always lovely to see Ove the waiter and this time we were unable to say hello to him. We were certainly not inconvenienced by not being able to dine in the hotel because we dined in the bar on a couple of occasions and at a lovely little restaurant we discovered in tq.

    Fabulous

    Good clean hotel

    I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions, this time sadly when having afternoon drinks and later pre dinner drinks I had to wait 20 minutes to be offered a drink in the lounge. Staff seemed to just walk right past me.

    The staff are always friendly but also very professional - The service is excellent and this never changes no matter how many times we visit the hotel

    One slight disappointment was the charge for the use of the safe in our room and also a charge of £2.50 when paying the bill with a credit card - this now seems to be coming more frequent in hotels in this country and I do not like it.
