    Convenient location, good choice at breakfast

    no air con, room (inc beds) ready for an upgrade, patchy wi-fi

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Facilities especially the swimming pools

    Rooms and decor need updating nevertheless I thought it was good value for money

  • Family with children
    7.4

    The swimming pools indoors and out were lovely, lots of places to eat and have coffee.

    What I did not like too much was it was a little to big and inpersonal for my likeing, breakfast was O.k, but not great.

  • Couple
    7.4

    Friendlyness of staff and location.

    Hotel was quite dated and shower clip was broken in our bathroom. Worst of all no air-con in the rooms.

  • Single

    Whilst I was staying for just one night there was plenty to do, if I had time activities include a gym, swimming pool as well as a very good cabaret. The breakfast was very good and was ample even for one who has a good appetite.

    I last stayed at the hotel over thirty years ago on my honeymoon, unfortunately the decor in the bedrooms does not seem have been updated during this time. Although the public rooms have been updated to a high standard. The lift in hotel did not work properly and I believe has been a problem for a number of months, as the Hotel is popular with coach parties (avoid the hotel if they are not to your taste) there were a lot of elderly people who relied on the lift, so the stairs were the best option most of the time

  • Group of friends

    The staff were in the main friendly and helpful. Plenty of facilities for families. Breakfast was ok although the seating process needs to be reveiwed and the Aztec Bistro food was excellent.

    As a family group we had 13 rooms, some for 2 nights some for 1 night. Even for a 2* hotel the bedrooms badly need upgrading,one room had a badly sloping floor and the shower was barely a trickle. Most of the rooms had threadbare carpets and badly needed decorating. Worst of all one of our group went to make a cup of tea and found vomit in the kettle. After complaining to reception they were provided with a pot of tea from the kitchen and a promise of a replacement kettle without much of an apology, the replacement kettle didn't materialise. Disgusting and shows the cleaning staff need to be checking the kettles daily. I wouldn't recomend to others or return at this stage.

  • Single

    Swimming pool area, is the only thing that I believe is the reason we stay at this hotel.

    We have been coming to this hotel for over 20 years, each time we are asked I'd we have stayed before, where is the loyalty and good customer service!

  • Couple
    6.2

    Convenient location. Breakfast was good. Free parking and helpfull staff

    For the money paid, the hotel was noisy, tired looking (entrance, lobby and hallway in desperate need of refurbishment), pictures on website are very flattering

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We found it very central to Torquay and very handy to get the Ferry to Brixam. The Saff were very good and friendly and had time to speak to you. Food was very good.We ate in the Bistro Bar on the evenings. Beakfast was very good. Entertainment was fair.

    The rooms could do with updating. The entrance is very shabby and could do with a face lift. We think what keeps the Hotel going strong is the Staff. Not a very good appearance from Outside on arrival. Sorry about this but it has to be said.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    My father and I were put in rooms in-between foreign students who were having parties at all hours of the night... Only a few hours sleep over the duration of holiday break

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Staff were very polite and helpful. Location was very good for beach and the facilities were fantastic for relaxing.

    I think the bedroom could do with being refurbished as the carpets were quite worn.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Friendliness of staff. Facilities, Large car park, Food, Entertainment, Short walk to beach and shops

    Cant think of anything

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Easy to find, good facilities, central location, pleasant staff. We enjoyed our break.

    Unfortunately, a delayed flight caused a late arrival. Excitable, noisy foreign students running through the hotel disturbing your sleep at 1.30 in the morning does not make a happy start to the day!! However, the staff handled the situation well and were apologetic.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    facilites were excellent

    room could have done with updating

  • Older travelers

    We have stayed at the Derwent on several occasions and return regularly

    We wre not impressed with the restaraunt on the evening, the food portions were small and for the cost was not very good
