The Haytor Hotel Torquay is an elegant detached Victorian Villa built in the 1830's and set in beautiful gardens, the Haytor Hotel offers an excellent bed & breakfast in Torquay.

It is located in a conservation area on leafy and peaceful Meadfoot Road just 400 metres from central Torquay and the harbour with its many bars, restaurants and shops. A short walk the other way takes you to the award-winning Meadfoot Beach and coastal paths with stunning bay views.

In addition to our ideal location, we offer:
• Flat screen digital TV with Freeview and Radio in all bedrooms
• A large level free car park
• Free Wi-Fi
• A fully-licensed bar

The hotel aims to balance attentiveness with discretion, enabling guests to enjoy their stay in Torquay for leisure or business.
All 15 rooms have been totally refurbished, we place our emphasis on cleanliness, comfort and style.
The Haytor Hotel Torquay provides luxury accommodation in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. We do not normally cater for children under twelve.

The Location
Although only 400 metres from the lively centre of Torquay, the Haytor Hotel is situated in a peaceful conservation area on green and pleasant Meadfoot Road, which leads from the Harbour to Meadfoot Bay through the most exclusive and sought-after area of town.
The peaceful atmosphere is enhanced and protected by the mature gardens and trees which surround the hotel, and which guests can enjoy from the hotel's terrace.

A full traditional English Breakfast, with Vegetarian, lighter or continental options available, is served in the elegantly decorated breakfast room overlooking the hotel gardens. For those in a rush, a number of early bird breakfast options are available, whilst, a Continental breakfast can be delivered to your room for those preferring to lie in.

Bar Lounge
In the evening you can relax in the licensed bar offering a wide choice of beers and lagers as well as a comprehensive selection of wines, spirits and liqueurs.

The Terrace
On a warm evening many guests prefer to take their refreshments out onto the terrace, where the peaceful atmosphere of the house extends. Here they can write postcards, immerse themselves in a novel, admire the hotel gardens, or just watch the Sun go down over Torquay.

The Garden
We have a large garden complete with pond, benches and a pleasant space to enjoy a drink. The garden is situated to the side and back of the hotel, providing a quiet space to reflect and contemplate.

Each room has remote controlled digital flat screen television incorporating freeview and radio, a hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities with biscuits.

Road Directions

Traveling from the North / East

At the end of the M5 (Southbound) (Junction 31) continue forwards and the road becomes the A38 (Devon Expressway) towards Plymouth.

In 1.7 miles take slight left onto Newton Road.

In 0.3 miles turn Right onto South Street, then continue onto Belgrave Road

At the Seafront, take a Left (not hard Left) onto Torbay Road / A379 along the Seafront (with sea on your Right) and drive past the Princess Theatre (on your Right).

At the roundabout (either lane), take the 1st exit onto Cary Parade/A379, follow the road as it curves left, past Hoopers / Debenhams (on your Left), and then at the next roundabout (with the Clock Tower) (Left lane), take the 1st exit onto Torwood Street / A379.

At the lights (Right lane), turn right onto Parkhill Road, follow the road as it bends to the left onto Meadfoot Road.

The hotel is 200 yards after the bend, on the Right.

For SatNav, use TQ1 2JP.  A few rogue Satnavs take you to Meadfoot Lane, rather than Meadfoot Road, don’t worry, you are still very close …

You should have no issues finding us, however if you do take a wrong turn and get lost in Torquay, stop (it will help if you can find the Seafront if possible), work out roughly where you are and which way you are pointing (look for road names, nearby hotels / shops etc.), and phone us on 01803 294708 and we can guide you in.
