In Torquay our base is the 4-star Grand Hotel, which enjoys a splendid location on the seafront overlooking Torbay, yet just across the road from the town's railway station. Torquay town centre and the harbour area are also just a short stroll away. This beautiful Victorian building boasts modern comforts, such as indoor and outdoor pools, a jacuzzi, gym and sauna. The Gainsborough restaurant offers a varied menu and the Compass Café Bar, with adjoining terrace, is a great place to relax.
The Grand Hotel won Great Rail Journeys' Bronze Award in the category of 'Best UK and Irish Hotel' in 2010. The hotel won a Gold Award for excellent customer service in 2012.
