Everything we expected with this hotel was fulfilled, as we had booked as a quite large party through a local man. Quite simply, the staff were great and we were looked after very well. Our beds were made up every day, and the restaurant staff were attentive and very efficient. Food was very nice, and there was plenty of it....

I wanted to give this review a 2 rating rather than a 3, but certain factors dragged it into a category 3. These were the restaurant staff and the reception team. Smiling, happy, friendly people who didn't seem to mind the fact that they were working in the most run down hotel that I have ever reviewed. Bedrooms - truly...

We were there for 2 nights and must admit it was enjoyable , thought the service was good and the food in particular . The only moan we had was that our room seemed miles away up and down stairs . The entertainment was really good in the Club Rainbow and the price of drinks not too expensive

10 minute walk from railway station. Check in after 2pm - no earlier, you have to wait! My single room small and compact but ok for my needs with tea/coffee facilities, bathroom and tv. 15 minute walk to shops and harbour. Note : Going in March is very early in the season, lots of things not open. Aim for April...

We were excited to try this hotel as we'd heard good reviews from others. Check in was simple we were told where our room was .. bit odd , back down the car park where we had just walked the length of through a wooden garden gate? Once through There was a terrible waste of a swimming pool and view!...

Just got back today after a weekend in the Rainbow Hotel in Torquay. A large group (35) of us went down on Friday by coach. Arrived and check in was very quick finding the rooms was a little confusing but found them in the end. Dinner was amazing great choice of food and all of the food was beautiful. The...
