Sadly we have no control over this new trend towards nightly 'hotel-style' pricing so please get in touch and we will be happy to help you further.**

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Dorchesters is an amazing property, a home from home, very stylishly decorated to a high standard. It was a real pleasure to have stayed there. Would definitely come back.



The only things which would have made our stay even more enjoyable would have been to have a swimming pool but I guess you cant have everything!!

A great family house!

  • 5 of 5

The Dorchesters is a new addition to the rental market in Torquay and has been furnished to a very good standard. The weather was rather chilly but the property provided a warm and comfortable retreat. It is only ten minutes walk down to the harbour and five minutes to the nearby Meadfoot beach.

As noted in the listing, only one car park space is available within the grounds, and additional parking is on the road outside. Be aware that coaches service the nearby hotels and the road is narrow.

We had our two year old granddaughter with us and so we enjoyed visits to Paignton Zoo and the model village at Babbacombe. There is an award winning fish restaurant Hanberrys worth checking out in Babbacombe.

We enjoyed a great family holiday and would recommend this property.
