On the Torbay seafront, the 4-star Grand Hotel has an AA Rosette-winning restaurant and a gym, with majestic views of the bay.
Score from 893 reviews Very good
Great personal friendly service. The fudge on the welcome tray was a nice touch-seems trivial but regular travellers will understand, good water pressure and temperature on the showers.
Having to go home!

Staff at Kingsholm were excellent very helpful and friendly. The property was spotlessly clean.Breakfast was excellent.With plenty of choice. This was freshly cooked when you ordered it. Kingsholm is only 5 minutes walk from Torquay Harbour and town. It also has good parking facilities off site.
Immaculate throughout! Very impressed with decor being modern bit also traditional and a warm homely feeling to the whole place.
Charming hosts- nothing was too much trouble, and a really lovely hotel. Delicious breakfasts with lots of choice. Close to the marina, and just a 5 minute walk from many attractions, shops and restaurants.Excellent free car park and free wifi. Highly recommended!
Lovely welcome from June who insisted on carrying our case upstairs. Tea and biscuits ready for us in the beautiful lounge when we had unpacked. Very nice room and shower room. Great breakfast served by Carl who was very informative about the area.

Cant think of anything Negative to say about the Place
Food and room
Noise from traffic.
Attentive staff. Tasteful decor. Delicious breakfast.
June and Carl were excellent hosts and made us feel at home for our whole stay. Unfortunately the weather was not as we would have liked, but this was nothing to do with our stay. The breakfasts were outstanding and we highly recommend the Kingsholm. The added bonus was a free car park at the property.
Hotel was lovely and clean. The breakfast was brilliant and the hosts were very freindly and welcoming.

Very difficult access with suitcases from front of hotel, many steps. Even more difficult from back entrance, although host willing to carry suitcases when available. Room very cramped.
