    Torquay’s Celebrated Treasure

    The Richardson Grosvenor is perfectly situated to enjoy Devon’s beautiful coastline, stunning beaches and local attractions. With an outdoor pool, indoor leisure facilities, dining in the contemporary Lawns Brasserie or stateside in Keith’s retro diner, the Richardson Grosvenor offers diversity and quality in one neat package.

    About the Hotel

    The Grosvenor was bought by the Richardson Hotel Group in 2013 and has undergone a drastic much needed refurbishment over the past 12 months.

    Situated in a prime position, just a short, leisurely walk from Torre Abbey Gardens and Torquay’s main seafront and marina, The Grosvenor Hotel is ideally located for getting around the Torbay area, the nearby historic fishing port of Brixham, delightful Dartmouth and neighbouring Paignton.  If you would rather leave the car behind, all areas are accessible – on foot, by bus, by train or, a great way to travel in the south west, by boat.

    Our Rooms

    Our 46 bedrooms are spacious and all are en-suite. We offer a variety of room categories, including double and twin rooms, sea view rooms, large family rooms and some extra special rooms with private balconies or terrace.

    Check in and check out times

    Your room will be available from 3pm on the day of arrival.  Check out is 11am, if you would like to extend your check out time it would be charged at £10 per hour after 11am.


    Due to the hotels Victorian architecture the hotel is not fully accessible for wheel chair users, as we cannot install lifts or disabled access ramps. Please note that there are steps up to all public areas and all hotel rooms.


    The Grosvenor Hotel also has a heated indoor & outdoor swimming pool, along with a well equipped gym, hot tub & sauna for you relax and unwind in.  WIFI is available in all the public areas.


    We welcome well-behaved dogs and charge £15 per dog per night. Please inform our reservations team, at the time of making your booking, if you are bringing your dog/dogs. We have allocated ‘dog-friendly’ rooms.


    The Grosvenor Hotel originally started life as two Victorian Villas, The Glefinnan and The Roslin Hall, they began trading as hotels around 110 years ago and were then joined together to create  The Grosvenor some years later. The building has striking Victorian architecture and many of the bedrooms still retain their elegant Victorian proportions and features as  does the ground floor hallway.

    The Grosvenor Hotel was brought into the Richardson Group in the Autumn of 2012, taking the total number of hotels in the Group to five.
