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)

... taken alone are enough to more than slightly raise an eyebrow, the cumulative effect is deeply disquieting. "This place is f**king WEIRD", Stu hisses. We drink our coffees, which incidentally are the most expensive we buy all week, use the hotel wifi to find a possible stopping point for the night and get the hell OUT.
As a parting farewell to the wifi, Stu posts a précis of our experience to Facebook. It's not long before various friends are ...
Dear all, We are in Plymouth tonight and head off to Stone Henge (again) and then to London. Then once we arrive at our hotel we will get ready to go out to the West end theatre area of London to see play War Horse! We were to go on a cruise in the Plymouth harbour at 5 pm but the weather was against us as well as the tides so cruiser owner cancelled it. Rain on and off gain today. Saw the ...
... from the off. An hour in we stopped at a cafe to con us into buying food. Had it not been for this we would have been at the hotel in time for food! We stayed on the coach. Ah the coach, never again shall Barry be allowed to choose the seats. Surrounded by noisy, smelly children and smokers. We transferred to a taxi and squeezed in with another couple for the final part of the journey to our hotel. First impressions ...
Off we go to our B&B. We are only here one night on route to Portsmouth. In the morning we take a walk down by the sea. They have a nice little pedestrian area where you can stroll along as well. It is another nice day and the dogs are all out playing in the surf. Dogs are prohibited from the beach from May to September, but it is October now and it is play time for puppies.

... rocks. The rocks felt round and soft, not spiky because the sea had polished them and they spread out because of the waves.
Fleet Air Arm Museum (Somerset) -later that day we drove over to the Navy's air museum and we walked around and saw lots of aeroplanes and ships. We went into a pretend helicopter and it rocked around and had a movie like it was a real one. We went up to the family area where we played some games. One you had to roll dice and ...
