    The Grosvenor Hotel originally started life as two Victorian Villas, The Glefinnan and The Roslin Hall. Due to the expansion of the Great Western Railway and the turn of the century tourist boom in Torquay, they began trading as hotels around 110 years ago. Eventually, they were then joined together to create The Roslin Hall Hotel, which was renamed, 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.

    Finally, the Grosvenor Hotel was brought into the Richardson Group in the Autumn of 2012, it was in a poor state of repair so the Richardson group has invested in substantial renovation works. Most recently in January 2017 works continued and include remodeling of the bar, restaurant, lounge, ballroom and kitchen, with bedrooms all also being renovated on a rolling schedule.


    Rooms are available from 3pm on the day of arrival.  Check out is 11am. In addition, we can offer late checkouts, which can be booked no later than 1pm with £25 charge.

    Due to the Victorian architecture of the hotel the property is not fully accessible for wheelchair users. As a result, no lifts or ramps can be installed. 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, well-equipped gym, hot tub & sauna for you relax and unwind in.  Wi-Fi 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 because we have allocated ‘dog-friendly’ rooms.

    Parking is available at a charge of £7 per day and includes a valet parking service.
