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)

... but it was all very easy to find. We checked our bags in and then went into departures. The first thing that hit me was.....shopping! The other thing that hits you is it is sooooo hot! We bought our breakfast from Pret a Menger, a croissant and coffee, also some sandwiches and crisp for the flight. I just love people watching and we soon spotted the first beep beep,s and Sarah pointed out you always get a fat one and a tall one! We ...
... with taxis and the road led out of the airport and onto a motorway! Looking at Google maps (thank heaven for Google!) we found we were although not far from our destination but would not be able to walk so decided to take a taxi. £9.00 got us a really plush car with an Indian driver. He was very smart and we almost felt important in the plush black leather seats. We arrived at The Corner House Hotel in Horley to find it was really lovely and the staff were very ...
... little hazier, (which is to say we haven't really got one), but the general aim is to slowly wind our way down the North Island using whatever cheap transport we can find, hop on the ferry to the South Island and then use a guided backpackers bus to explore the wonders of New Zealand's most spectacular scenery (or so it looks in the books). We have already made arrangements to attempt two of New Zealand 'Great Walks' and also booked our stay ...
With the wonders of modern travel, Virgin Airlines get us to Gatwick half an hour early at 5.20 am on 30th December, after the usual arrival formalities I manage to load all our suitcases and rucksacks onto a trolley and head through the arrivals scrummage and into the increasing cold in Gatwick Railway station to try and sort a change of ticket from our original February return to immediate ones. The cold is no good for ...
... It was raining a bit but I felt it didn't seem to be enough to justify the amount of water in the garage, anyway I dried it all out and just before going to bed checked it again and lo and behold more water. Overnight I came to the conclusion that perhaps the water was coming from somewhere other than the garage door and the prime culprit was the bathroom basin. So in the morning I ran water through the basin and immediately it appeared ...
