Well where do we start. We booked here for Our Honeymoon as Mexico wasn’t to be. But we can honestly say we had the best time. John & Jane were so pleasant and welcoming, which made our stay even more enjoyable. They couldn’t do enough to ensure your stay was perfect. The little touches they added to our room for our honeymoon were amazing and we can’t thank you enough for making it feel special. Perfect location for getting out and about too. But The breakfast.. WOW!! The choice was brilliant but the taste was outstanding. We throughly enjoyed our breakfast each morning. We can’t wait to return and might make it into a yearly getaway to celebrate our anniversary. John’s espresso Martinis 🍸 are the best too 🤩 Thank you again for the best honeymoon we could have wished for. X

Hotel's Favourite
My wife and I have just returned from a 9 night stay at the Haytor hotel. We stayed in one one of the suites which was very Spacious and comfortable and furnished to a very high standard. This is our second visit, as we also stayed here for the first time last year. Even during the Covid-19 pandemic, John and Jane have all the safety measures firmly in place, and on arrival you are informed of all the precautions that are in place, therefore ensuring that you can relax and unwind enjoying your holiday, knowing that you are in safe hands at this hotel. They have plenty of lovely comfortable garden furniture to sit and enjoy a glass of wine within the beautiful gardens in which both enjoyed. You are allocated a time slot for breakfast in order to maintain social distancing. The breakfast is freshly cooked to order by Jane and is served by John, and it absolutely delicious and by far the best we had in any hotel. All the produce is sourced locally and is top notch. The hotel is only about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the numerous bars and restaurants at the marina. The owners, Jane and John really are the most genuine, lovely couple that you could meet, and nothing is too much trouble for them. The same can be said for the young ladies that work here from housekeeping to serving your coffee.We both will be Returning next year again so a big thanks to you all for a wonderful chill out Holiday.

John and Jane made our terrific stay so memorable. Their attention to detail, whether cleanliness of the room to the wonderful cooked breakfast, made all the difference. We fully endorse all of the previous comments and would most heartily recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Torquay. Perhaps not mentioned before, are the wide range of nearby restaurants, which are all within easy walking distance. Thank you J&J for a fantastic relaxing stay.
