Where to stay in Torquay

When you book a room at a seafront hotel in Torquay, you can take full advantage of English Riviera's famous golden sands and clean swimming facilities, all within walking distance of the town center. Many top-quality seafront hotels offer everything from spa treatments and indoor heated swimming pools, to award-winning bars and front-facing rooms overlooking the town's waterfront promenade. For a less expensive and more romantic alternative deeper inland, consider staying at a private cottage, where you can enjoy privacy and comfort minutes from picturesque coastal paths, pubs, wine bars, and shops.
