About Trecarn Hotel

Offering delightful accommodation in a peaceful location, the Trecarn Hotel is only a stroll away from Babbacombe Downs, overlooking the bay. Standing in its own grounds, the Trecarn Hotel Torquay has been a favourite with holiday makers for years. From our Torquay hotel you can get to several small sandy coves by going down steep Cliffside roads, or take the famous Cliff Railway down to Oddicombe Beach. Babbacombe, together with the neighbouring village of St Marychurch, is a very pleasant part of Torquay with plenty of attractions on the doorstep.

Hotel nicely refurbished food good but the entertainment was awful and the problem is you can't get away from the awful bang bang bang of the drum machine used in making the cd's played, unless you go to your room. If you want to go out in the evening and have a car this hotel will suit you fine.

Unbeatable value for money

Rooms were of a four star standard, facilities, entertainment and food were close to five star standard, the staff without exception were efficient, friendly and helpful and the value for money could not be beaten. Highly recommended.

Good value, great staff

A party of nine people visited and all had a very enjoyable five days. The staff were excellent very helpful, food really well presented and a good choice. Entertainment good the Comedian and Abba both great. A little too much Bingo for me. Excursions were really well organised, our coach driver Jill was just brilliant. The only down side was the showers just not enough power. However value for money the whole trip was great we would certainly recommend the hotel and National Holidays.

Try the Trecarn yourself lovely

Had a fri-mon inclusive break at the TRECARN BAY. NOV 23/26, all I can say is ignore some of the Trip advisor reviews, and try it for yourself. Ok the rooms are not 5* but they are only for sleeping in. This was first National holidays break. It will not be my last, and I would not mind going back to this hotel I had a small problem with the wash basin in the bathroom. It was quickly rectified. The food, entertainment, inclusive bar [Only had to wait about a minute to be served], where first class.

5 Star Service

Nearly put off by reviews but for cost thought it was worth giving it a go. Hotel is tired and outside does not impress you but staff and food was first class and we found our room clean, fresh and comfortable. Entertainment best seen for ages. Value for money with National holidays. Would have been nice if Manager mingled a bit more.

National Holiday trip to Trecarn hotel Babbacombe

My 3 sisters and I have had a great holiday with you. I am much travelled and cruise with P & O every year, but I must say that for what we paid this hotel was excellent. You got people moaning about the queue at the bar but judging from the drinks on their tables everyone had more than enough. The food was excellent as were the staff who just could not do any more for you. I would definitely recommend this hotel and also visit it again.

Work in Progress

You can’t fault the value for money and entertainment. We enjoyed the area and luckily the weather was pretty good. I was happy because the room had a bath and I don’t like showers. The food was of a good standard and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely go again. If we had gone on previous Tripadvisor reviews, it may have put us off but thank goodness we took no notice.
