Just returned from our annual summer break. Our stay was, as usual, thoroughly enjoyable, Stephen & Amanda making us feel at home as soon as we arrive. Our stay was all the more enjoyable as we usually coincide with other regulars. We were pleased to see external refurbishment is being carried out, but it caused us no inconvenience. It is being done in phases, and will vastly improve the look of this lovely listed building when completed. We always have dinner in because the food is so good and we are always spoilt for choice with new additions to the menu as well as our favourites, all prepared on site from fresh mainly local produce. The room are all comfortable but none are the same and all we have been in have been light and airy. All being well we will be back in December for our usual Christmas break.

Room Tip: We think May, June, July & October are the best rooms although the four poster bed in The Masters is worth the extra.

We have just returned home from yet another lovely stay at Frognel Hall Hotel, from the moment we arrived to the lovely warm welcome
from Stephen and Amanda, it was like we had never been away.
Frognel Hall is a beautiful victorian villa which is just a 15 minute walk to the town centre and harbour, It is lovingly cared for by its owners Stephen and Amanda and we feel privileged to be able to stay there as often as we can,and indeed would not want to stay anywhere else when visiting Torquay.
Our room (Masters) is always spotlessly clean and the food carefully prepared by Stephen is superb with both breakfast and dinner menus proving plenty of choice.
We have always dined in at the Frognel Hall for dinner simply because the food is so good and we are always spoilt for choice by well chosen new additions to the menu together with firm favourites.
Stephen and Amanda are great hosts and have created a warm and friendly atmosphere at Frognel Hall and they do everything possible to ensure that their guests have a great stay with them. The fact that they have a large number of regular guests, like ourselves who return time after time is surely testament to their efforts.
Thank you Stephen and Amanda for another great holiday and we look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Masters is a large room with Fourposter and views of Torquay

Just returned after 2 weeks thoroughly enjoyable stay. This is our 20th visit during Stephen and Amandas ownership and it is always excellent. Externally major refurbishment taking place , but phased to avoid any inconvenience to guests. All the meals are prepared on the premises from local produce and are excellent, probably the best in the area.
This is a lovely old house, full of character, not an impersonal corporate hotel. A superb holiday in a comfortable Victorian country home with exceptional hosts

Room Tip: best to call and ask if you have any special requirements, all are good.

Just got home after 3 night break at this hotel.Really nice proprietors Stephen & Amanda. Very helpful, nothing too much trouble & very informative on things to do in Torquay & the surrounding areas.Food was excellent with an extensive breakfast menu & everything we chose was cooked to perfection.It is an old building but we were warm & comfy throughout our stay. In it's hay day this house must have been stunning. You really get a feel for the place with high ceilings log burning fire & original features it was clean & welcoming with a charm all of it's own. The bar was very well stocked & open till late if you felt like a nightcap on your return. There was nothing to find fault with and we had the most enjoyable stay. Will definitely return when we can.
