Redcliffe Hotel

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 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. 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.
