Derwent Hotel Review
We have stayed at the Derwent Hotel on many occasions and over various seasons. We were very impressed by this 3 star hotel and because of the facilities it provides. Most of all it is a very handy walk to the town center and also the beautiful beach of Torquay. If you’re lucky you might even see some of the amazing sand art, done by a local enthusiast.
The Gym, swim and spa area in the Derwent hotel were also perfect. There is a large 25 meter pool ideal for swimming lengths and adjacent to it there also a kids pool. The jacuzzi in the same area is very popular. we loved taking a soak and relaxing in the bubbles and warm water that soothed our aching muscles after dancing or touring around.
The Starlight Lounge !!
Furthermore we love to Dance and the starlight lounge at the Derwent hotel which has superb entertainment with some great comedians. We especially liked ‘Kevin bunclark’ who was absolutely fabulous and had us in stitches with his Irish skits and the many array of hats to fit every comedy act. I was so enthralled I forgot to take a photo !!!. Although I do have one of Terri Topaz the transvestite act and he sang quite well.
The dance floor is a good size for ballroom, jive and sequence dancing and because all the entertainment is on site, it’s only a matter of a walk from your hotel room. This way you can have a drink without worrying about such things as driving etc. We have yet to do an organized entertainment weekend and we will probably look into this. The selection sounds perfect ranging from tribute bands to cabaret acts and Big Band for ballroom dancing.
Aztec games room !!
The aztec Games room at the Derwent hotel is a complete compendium of games and activities. There is a 10 pin bowling alley, pool/snooker tables, table tennis tables and also lots of interactive arcade style games. The Sports bar was a welcome relief as we could have a beer whilst playing pool etc. We found it the perfect place if the weather wasn’t great outside or just to while away some family fun hours.
The breakfast was in a large dining area and consisted of a buffet style help yourself with waitress service for tea and coffee etc. There was plenty of fruit, cereal and a fully cooked english breakfast. It was also very nice !!!

Just thought I would add a picture of the lovely Torquay Pavilion, undergoing restoration at the moment. We will have a look inside once it’s all done.
