Best Christmas Ever
I stayed at the Victoria Hotel for 3 nights over Christmas. It was the most fantastic christmas we have ever had. All the hotels were decorated beautifully. They gave out gifts, free drinks, festive food. The atmosphere was very special. The food was excellent. I travelled with my husband and two children. The facilities for all of us were superb. My children are aged 7 and 10 and they enjoyed themselves so much. It was our second visit (we first went in August 2005). Would definitely recommend it to everyone. In the summer it was full of families with children. At christmas there was mainly older people but there were about 30 children.
It has all the facilities you could want. It was clean, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the entertainments team do a very good job.
Great Family Hotel
We stayed at the Toorak Hotel in August. The hotel is somewhat dated but is clean and comfortable. We had a superior terrace room overlooking the outdoor pool which was very spacious, the added bonus of the terrace was a god send as the weather was fabulous. The food is passable, although the service in the restaurant is a little slow at times. What makes this hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The receptionists are extremely helpful giving information about activities in the area. Nothing was too much trouble for our waitress in the restaurant and for our cleaner in the room! There is good evening entertainment for all the family, and daily activities for the children if they want them. The swimming pools are great and with indoor and outdoor to choose from it doesn't matter about the weather. I would recommend this hotel to families with children. Your children cannot be bored here! We are returning next August for what will be our third visit and looking forward to it already!!
Great for kids of all ages
Got back today from a week at the Carlton, half board. Booked at short notice and nothing was too much trouble. Easy to make a reservation. Our superior, front facing room was well worth the extra and although very booked up, we never felt crowded. So many facilities to use that we hardly left the complex. Our children of 11,16 and 17 were well occupied and the days flew by. The food was very good, a real adventure of new tastes..some a work of art. Most of the entertainment was good . The swimming in all the various pools was tops. Parking can be a problem.
we stayed at the derwent on the weekend of 08/04/05 .the entertainment was superb with the batchelors on stage for 2hours on saturday .and what an excellent show they were.
the food was very good and the young spanish waitress couldn.t have been more helpful.
the leisure facilities are first class and will take some beating whereever you visit.
the aztec pool complex has to be the best indoor pool in any hotel in the country. we will certainly visit t.l.h again
This is an excellent stay for both first comers and seasoned visitors to Torquay. All the TLH hotels are linked and you are never left bored. Entertainment is at a premium and of course there is always the swimming pool. Breakfast and evening meals are not to be missed.
1st class family holiday
We have been twice to TLH - absolutely fantastic for families - loads to do. The swimming pools are out of this world-very clean changing rooms.Entertainment every night and stuff going on throughout the day. Massive games room, even a baby's play area. Everywhere has a food & drinks area - don't need to leave the hotel. Staff are brilliant.
Torquay leisure hotel
This was the 10th year we have stayed at TLH but the first at the Victoria which is much quieter than the Derwent.
our children although 16 and 18 had such a good time that they are talking about returning next year. so many families return year in year out that they always have friends to share it with. This year the management even let them have the disco for a private party.
The weather was bad but no one complained.
the evenings with Kevin were the best!!!
Good for families
1st visit, stayed half board at the Carlton in a superior family room which was quite spacious. We did a last minute booking on the internet. We thought it was excellent value for money. Our 5 year old daughter loved it. Great for kids, lots of activities with the kids club, indoor & outdoor play areas, discos and pools. Would give the food 7/10 but the desserts 10/10. The entertainment was good. I think teenagers would love it too, theres a huge basement with a bar, dance machines, snooker & pool tables, ten pin bowling, cyber cafe etc. Many people we spoke to had been going there for years. Centrally placed with a short walk to the promenade. We would definitely return.
Great for families
We have stayed three times at the Derwent Hotel which is part of the TLH resort and have always had a good time.
The rooms are reasonable and the staff friendly.
There is an indoor and outdoor pool, the indoor one has sauna and jacuzzi. There is also an arcade with bowling, table tennis, pool, computers, play stations etc. The kids are more than happy to stay in the hotel all day!
It is quite good value as includes Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. The food isn't bad and there is always an entertainment programme which again the kids love.
A very easy holiday - no need to think!
Excellent value break
Went at half term in Febuary,not a good choice if you have no children.Loads of children around, many were not under parental control,therefore made things difficult at times. The hotel,rooms and food were good quality and the service in the restaurant was good,even if the staff were rushed off their feet!!!! A very good value break as we booked through the internet ,rang the hotel but quoted rates on the net. Would return(out of school holidays though)

Today we went for breakfast at a different Aunty Janes house who they all used to know in PNG and is like Rons second mum. She made us this huge cooked breakfast and invited Margaret to come with us as well. I'm getting so confused with all the people I'm meeting and who is actually related to who... Ron and Abi know everyone... After breakfast and a chat there we headed to Tavistock to go to to the Tavistock ...
... really cool. Then we headed back off the island to have lunch and I had my first pasty in England. We also came across the place Mike (Abi's dad) was born in during the war. It is actually like a castle, they moved the hospital to there while Plymouth was being bombed and it is such a nice building. So we stopped and checked that out because abi had never been there. I was impressed that he can say he was born in a castle and I have to say I'm born ...
... I know mum wanted me to check out. I didn't realise people still had them, we even saw one being restored. We then headed off to Plymouth which was another 2.5 hour drive. I have been feeling sick the past few days and felt the worst today so I just slept in the car. We arrived at Abi's uncle John and aunty Janes house and had dinner, but we didn't stay long because they had there meeting and I was feeling sick. So we headed down road to Abi's ...
... language and culture barrier in England. In Exeter particularily, people are not very open. You can't smile at someone on the street passing by, and in general you have to make an effort to start and keep a conversation going. They are very conservative. That being said once you get them talking you meet some very nice and genuine people.
There are also quite a few words and phrases that are very different in England. Simple ...
