Gary and Philip became the new owners of The Torcroft in September 2019. Gary and Philip fell in love with The Torcroft the first time they visited her and are proud and delighted to run such a wonderful establishment.
We have a simple philosophy - guests feel special, and every effort is made to ensure their stay is memorable. At The Torcroft the atmosphere is relaxed, classy and comfortable.
The Torcroft has been substantially refurbed for 2020, which included several guest rooms, the lounge and dining room and a new bar, to return to the luxury and glamour of the original Gentleman's Residence.
Gary is also a Director for the Torbay Chamber of Commerce, so is involved in promoting and working with local business and enterpise, in partneship with Torbay Council. Philip is an avid Liverpool FC fan, so is having a rather wondeful season!
Minka, our Hungarian Vizsla lives at The Torcroft. Minka is very well trained and never goes upstairs or accesses guest bedrooms. Minka shares our accomodation and communal areas on the ground floor. We recognise not all guests are dog lovers, so please let us know if you are nervous around dogs, to ensure Minka gives you plenty of space. Minka is 11 years old, so at busy times prefers her own company, but is often here to greet guests when they arrive.
