Robin Hill is a beautiful, detached hotel with 14 ensuite letting rooms, together with a separate 2-bedroom cottage and 1-bedroom lodge. This successful business has an AA four-star award and attracts high TripAdvisor & Booking.com scores. With full liquor licence, large car park and prominent location within 500m to the harbour, marina and town centre. This ‘Colonial Style’ property benefits from a beautiful veranda, large gardens, ample parking area together with many fine period features. Presented to a high standard throughout and only operating part of the year which provides a lovely lifestyle. Early viewings are highly recommended.


Ideally located just a short walking distance to the picturesque marina and harbour of Torquay. The seafront and promenade along the esplanade have wonderful sea-views towards Torbay, Paignton and Brixham.  The immediate area benefits from many local amenities, together with a plethora of quality restaurants & wine bars. It is within a short distance to the main shopping precinct, the Princess Theatre, Riviera Convention Centre and both main train and bus station nearby.


The property has been subject to a rolling programme of refurbishment, the guest bedrooms and public areas have recently been redecorated to a high standard and a complete new central and pressurised hot water system has recently been installed. Because of all this, the business benefits from good repeat custom, saving on commission but still exposing the hotel successfully to third party booking sites like Booking.com. Because of lifestyle choice, our clients trade only 10 months per year, by extending this and with improved marketing using social media and the existing customer database, we the agents feel there is great scope to expand this already impressive business. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.  Robin Hill has all the attributes to be run as a high-class boutique hotel.
