About Us

Eating in… or venturing out…

Crofton House offers our guest a boutique adult only hotel, where guests can start their day by being offered our highly praised ‘cooked to order’ breakfast from our menu with a significant range of locally gathered produce.

Breakfast can be enjoyed in the dining room or on the sun terrace.  Help yourself to the breakfast bar of fruit, cereal and yogurts. Juices and hot beverages are served direct to your table. Our breakfast menu offers a variety of freshly cooked options from just a little something on toast or in a sandwich to a full Crofton breakfast.

At Crofton House our guests highly rate our ability to accommodating their dietary need, be it vegetarian, vegan, lactose free and many others.

If you book ‘room only’ we can add a breakfast option at check-in or we can recommend a number of local places to enjoy breakfast while you are out and about.

Our all day menu, which can be enjoyed in and around Crofton House, offers you a wide selection of freshly prepared light snacks and homemade meals which include a number of homemade weight-watcher dishes and desserts.

We offer guests the ability to pre-ordering our popular pack lunches which are prepared to your own requirement to take with you on your next day’s trip out or much on your trips back home.

Crofton House also offers a number of “Stay & Dine” options, where, in addition to our highly rated breakfast, we include a three course meal. These can be found in “offers” on our website!

We recognise guests want to experience the wide variety of quality restaurants in and around Torquay. We are more than happy to assist you with recommendations and restaurant booking. To name a few… There is the ‘One-World Café, which serves great snacks and often has live events through the season. There are real local family Thai or Chinese restaurants, both a stroll away from Crofton House. ‘Man Friday Lobster House’ which so many of our guests rave about is great for fish dishes, though they do prepare non-fish dishes too. There is also the wonderful ‘Orange Tree Restaurant’ or ‘Wild Goose’ for celebrating something special…!

The list goes on.. Why not take a look at:

Places to snack while out and about…

A visit to the local ‘picture-postcard’ Cockington Village, where you could enjoy a cream tea while listening to the piano playing or sample the ever so yummy handmade chocolate’s at the 'Chocolatier'.

Nearby Babbacombe has the great experience of the funicular railway on the sea front where the café offers coffee and snacks with views out to sea.

Boat trips on offer from the marina, including one which takes you across to Brixham known for its fishing and is very popular.

Torquay town centre to stop at the many coffee shops like 'Calypso Café' on 'Union Street'. There is also ‘Off Shore’ at the inner marina, for great all day food and often with live evening music. 

Like so many of our guests at Crofton House, we trust you will enjoy your stay and look forward to returning.
