Activities for Families
The Grosvenor is the perfect family holiday base from which to explore the English Riviera. There are plenty of family activities, local attractions, including Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts, Babbacombe Model Village and two steam railways, in addition to 22 miles of coastline with gloriously sandy beaches. The nearest is right opposite us and is perfect for swimming, sandcastle building and rock pool exploring!
Young salty sea dogs will be spoilt for choice as there are plenty of water sports on offer, including canoeing, sailing and sea kayaking. Nature lovers will enjoy a day out at Occombe Farm and the exciting programme of walks and events run by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. If you’d like some advice on what to do or where to go, just ask one of our Reception Team and they’ll be happy to help with suggestions
If you have your children with you we aim to make your family dining experience as enjoyable as possible, as we understand how difficult it can be to keep little ones from getting bored.
We have a range of children’s dishes on the menu, but if nothing takes their fancy we will be happy to prepare a dish from the adults’ menu in a smaller portion.
Please see a member of the waiting staff to request a children’s menu; these include some miniature puzzles and a colouring picture on the back.
For babies we can blend almost anything from our menus, please see a member of staff for details. To add to your child’s experience we have some children’s cutlery so it is more manageable for them.
After dinner, we have a “Children’s Area” that includes a small table with plenty of colouring pictures, puzzles and crayons. Also, please bear in mind, at bedtime we are happy to serve either warm milk or hot chocolate with a cookie for £2.50.
If there is anything else we can do please see a member of staff, who will be happy to help.
Our family rooms are spacious and can accommodate up to 2 adults and 2 children (aged 15 and under), and are available as standard or superior rooms. All family rooms come with en-suite bathrooms and offer tea and coffee-making facilities, hairdryer, TV and toiletries as standard. Our two bedroom family rooms are also suitable for families requiring even more space.
