Welcome to the Redcliffe Hotel
There can be very few hotels in England to match the location of the Redcliffe Hotel. This really is a hotel on the seafront and, more precisely, on the beach!
Situated on a promontory dividing the two sandy beaches of Paignton and Preston, the Redcliffe boasts a 400 metre water frontage, at sea level, in the very centre of the outstandingly beautiful Torbay, otherwise known as 'The English Riviera'.
Sea views, from elegant Torquay on one side to the quaint fishing port of Brixham on the other, can be enjoyed from all public rooms, many of the bedrooms and from our large seafront sun terrace.
The building itself is totally unique. It was built as a private residence in 1856 by Colonel Robert Smith who served with the Royal Bengal Engineers and styled his home with a distinct Indian theme. 'Redcliffe Towers' was converted into an hotel in 1904 and original features still abound, creating an atmosphere of luxury and elegance from a past era.
Privately owned and managed by the Twigger family since 1979, the Redcliffe does, however, now offer every modern facility to ensure an enjoyable stay, whether for business or pleasure, short break or family summer holiday. A tropical indoor pool with sauna, steam room and spa pool offers complete relaxation and a large outdoor pool and sunbathing area are perfect to make the most of the summer sunshine.
The Redcliffe prides itself on the level of service provided and this is the major factor behind the number of repeat bookings. Many of the staff have long service at the Hotel and carry out their duties in a pleasant, professional and efficient way.
