If you’ve not been to TLH Leisure Resort or are coming this year for the first time, you’ll find everything you need to know about the four hotels that make up this unique resort in Torquay.

With four interlinked hotels on a single site plus full centrally based leisure facilities available to all our guests, TLH Leisure Resort is a really unique place to come and stay.

Tell Me About The Resort

Here at TLH Leisure Resort, we have 4 hotels that share a 7 acre site (close to the sea) and are all linked with unrivalled leisure facilities, when compared to other Torquay hotels.

Based only minutes from the seafront, we offer great rooms, fantastic on-site restaurants plus glorious sun terraces and gardens. We have free parking (on a first come, first served basis) and are close to main public transport routes including Torquay and Torre train stations.


Tell Me About The TLH Hotels

TLH Leisure Resort has four 3 star hotels, all with their own individual personalities and styles:

TLH Derwent  Hotel –  Here you’ll be at the heart of our entertainment as this hotel is home to the Starlight Lounge, our premier entertainment venue. The largest of the 4 hotels, the TLH Derwent Hotel has a contemporary restaurant, serving a seasonal menu all year round, whether it’s a full English breakfast or our table d’hote evening meals. All our food is prepared onsite by our talented chefs and catering staff.

TLH Victoria HotelSteeped in history, you’ll love the Victorian features including the great glass dome in the beautiful period restaurant. Home to two of our best and biggest ballrooms, this hotel is popular with dancers, who frequently visit on hosted dance breaks and events. Spacious en-suite rooms, many of which offering panoramic views of Torbay, will not disappoint, nor will the attentive staff at the hotel.

TLH Carlton HotelThe smallest of our four hotels, the TLH Carlton does not lack when it comes to friendly staff and fantastic service. Closely linked to our Aztec Spa, this hotel is popular with couples, wanting a more intimate hotel experience. The most elevated of all our hotels, the Riviera Front Facing rooms offer superb views, across the bay as well as quick and easy access into Torquay town via Falkland Road and Lucius Street.

TLH Toorak Hotel – Last but by no means least, our TLH Toorak hotel boasts spacious terrace rooms, award winning gardens and stylish restaurant. With a quieter atmosphere, it’s popular with those who wish to have a more relaxing break in Torquay. The TLH Toorak is also the closest hotel to Torre Abbey Historical House and Gardens, as well as being the quickest route to the beach (Only a few hundred yards away).
