Gary & Philip became proprietors of The Torcroft in September 2019. We fell in love with The Torcroft on our first visit and are proud and delighted to run such a wonderful establishment. Torquay has become our home and we have discovered why people love The Riviera and surrounding areas so much.   Our approach -guests feel special, at home as every effort is made to make your stay memorable.   Since moving in to The Torcroft we have undertaken a complete interiors re-think, in partnership with Catherine and Andrew Rogers of RevisionR. We have worked in keeping with the period of the property; animating period features and uncovering others that were lost to poor building practices of the past, we have injected a little of our personality throughout the hotel. Every area of the building has been polished in some manner, with many rooms completely refurbished to create a universal feel and standard throughout. 


Patti & Punkie Patti and Punkie are sisters who were born on 1 September 2023 on a gorgeous farm.   They moved in to The Torcroft mid-November and we are now hopelessly devoted to them.   Like Minka, our first Vizsla, they live with us and never go upstairs. We understand not everyone loves dogs so if you need a bit of space just let us know. Although they may win you round by the time you leave....  Patti & Punkie are loving living in The Bay and walking on beaches. They are looking forward to meeting new guests and meet our wonderful return guests in 2023.  




Minka  Our sweet Minka passed in June 2022.   So many of you enjoyed her company, made a fuss of her and bought her the odd treat. Thank You.  We named our company MinkaCo so she's always with us xx
