Hotels in Torquay

Hotels in Torquay place you right in the heart of the English Riviera, a perfect position to enjoy everything that Torbay has to offer. The English Riviera is positioned on the south west coast of England and is surrounded by beautiful countryside while possessing some of Europe’s finest coastline to the west of that found around our hotels in Bournemouth. Accommodation in Torquay benefits from the area’s microclimate, which keeps it warmer than other spots along the coast, and there are plenty of beaches with clean waters and golden sand. The climate means palm trees flourish and can be seen in gardens all along the coast. It’s no wonder that holiday makers have travelled here since Victorian times.

Out and About


Hotel Gleneagles is our Torquay hotel, and is in one of the most peaceful locations in the town, just fifteen minutes from the town centre. A private pathway leads you through 8 acres of woodland to the South Devon Coastal Path and onwards towards the popular Ansteys Cove, a shingle beach favoured by Agatha Christie for picnics during her time here, also making the Gleneagles one of the best wedding venues Torquay has to offer.

Follow the coastal path in either direction to find the ever popular Meadfoot and Oddicombe beaches. Further afield, you will find Abbey Sands, Preston Sands Paignton Beach and finally Goodrington Sands, home to Quaywest Waterpark. You can also enjoy your own water adventure with us, as we are one of the few luxury Torquay hotels with swimming pool facilities.

Torquay is only a short drive from the enduringly popular town of Paignton and the historic fishing village of Brixham, so staying in hotels in Torquay allows you to explore some of South Devon’s most popular and attractive destinations.

Also within easy reach of our Torquay hotel are the historic cities of Exeter, famous for its cathedral, and Plymouth, with its majestic naval history and stunning marine aquarium, so one of our Torquay conference rooms would be the perfect setting for your next business meeting. For the horticulturalists, the South West provides a myriad of attractions: the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and, of course, the unforgettable Dartmoor, with its ponies and granite tors. Within Torbay, you have Kents Cavern, Living CoastsPaignton ZooPaignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway and, family favourite, The Babbacombe Model village.

Year-Round Events


There is no shortage of events going on throughout the year either, and visitors staying in Torquay hotels will find that there’s plenty going on all year round.

  • The Agatha Christie Festival takes place each September, giving you a chance to learn about the life of this fascinating woman and discover the area from which she drew so much inspiration. There are also plenty of performances and dramatisations of her plays and books put on at venues around the town.
  • If you visit during the winter months, the switching on of the Christmas lights is not to be missed, and is sure to get you in festive spirits.
  • In May, a series of powerboat races take place around the coast, whilst the annual Pirate Festival takes place on land.
  • During summer, you can make the most of the long evenings and warm sun by enjoying a cream tea in one of Torbay’s many gardens or parks. There are also walking routes to follow, museums to discover and plenty more, all within easy reach of your Torquay hotel.
