Local Chambers of Commerce for TQ2 5TE. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Open House Torbay Estate Agents

42 Grosvenor Ave, Torquay TQ2 7JY, UK – 01803 659000

Open House Torquay helped me to sell my property within 3 weeks. Selling was so cheap i couldn't believe it. I do not understand why people pay so much to these high street agents when you can get same, personalise service with local agents like Open house and cost you so less. They even promise minimum sale fees guarantee. Until you don't try it you will never know how much you can save. I only paid £450 inclusive VAT for my sale in comparison to high street agent, they were charging me over £5000 and i struggled to obtain feed back from them -what a big difference now ! I am using all this savings to buy new wooden flooring and furniture for my new house. Thanks you Open House Torquay. Mr & Mrs Colin Smith

Chelston Hall Surgery

Old Mill Rd, Torquay TQ2 6HW, UK – 01803 605359

I was not very impressed when Barton surgery merged with Chelston but after a few teething problems, which in fairness any surgery taking on this amount of patients would have faced I am actually very impressed and I am in regular contact with them. With all the NHS cuts and pressure they are all under by the government I find the majority off them extremely pleasant and accommodating.

Appointments easy to get and docors very good-excellent. Their only major negative is they can't ever get a repeat prescription correct or within 48hrs. I ALWAYS have to complain about that with little if any improvement.

Parkhill Medical Practice

Parkhill Rd, Torquay TQ1 2EA, UK – 01803 212489

Brunel Medical Practice

St Albans Rd, Torquay TQ1 3SL, UK – 01803 312233

There are some good Gp's at this practice. Only bug bear is that it sometimes takes a long while for the phone to be answered when making appointments.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Mount Stuart Hospital

St Vincent's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4UP, UK – 01803 313881

I first stayed at Mount Stewart in 2013 for a hip replacements. My treatment and impression of the hospital was such that when I knew I needed the other hip replaced in 2014 I didn't hesitate to book an appointment with the same consultant there. The hospital is more like a hotel with pleasant, comfortable reception - no plastic chairs here! All the corridors were spotlessly clean - more so than some big name hotels I have stayed at. The rooms are individual with their own shower and toilet. Recently a new wing has been added with new, larger, rooms each with a large wet room and facilities that would normally be found only in the grandest hotels. The staff were all pleasant and professional, and the food all freshly prepared - no packet soups! The surgeon and anesthetist both made visits to explain exactly what was to be done and check that I understood so I felt very confident that I would receive the best of care. Aftercare was excellent and the Physiotherapists were very efficient. In 2013 I was able to return home after 4 days and in 2014 I was well enough in just 3 - having achieved their criteria of walking the corridors and then walking unaided up and down flights of stairs! I would be totally unfair to compare this hospital with Torbay but having a choice - I would not hesitate to recommend Mount Stewart.

My 24 hour stay at the hospital could not have been better. The staff are extremely kind and efficient, my operation went smoothly and I was given options for the anaesthesia that were carefully explained that I really appreciated. Meals were delicious and the rooms as comfortable as a good hotel, with TV and wi fi.

Torbay Hospital

Lowes Bridge, Torquay TQ2 7AA, UK – 01803 614567

Spent 4 hours today in AMU. What a fantastic department from receptionist to consultant! Very caring & most impressed by the free sandwiches for lunch. I couldn't have asked for better treatment. Thank you

Had a new hip installed and very happy with the results. Staff are underpaid and overworked. They do the best they can with very limited resources. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Photo taken from my bed afternoon came round from the op.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Torquay

Sea Spray Restaurant

Sea Spray Restaurant, 8 Victoria Parade, Torquay TQ1 2BB, UK – 01803 293734

Absolutely fantastic. Food, service and atmosphere is outstanding. Prices are good. One of the best seafood restaurants I've ever been to and I love seafood.

We had our first meal of the week here. Last week, (September) and although it was not summer the restaurant got full very quick. We took a chance just going there and asking for a table for two but were lucky. Some people had to wait a few minutes. The food was so good it spoiled us for the rest of the week. We could easily have eaten there every night, but we wanted to sample other good restaurants. We enjoyed every minute of the evening there and would tell anybody going to Torquay or near there to sample the cuisine.

Enjoyed a meal here last year so returned again this year when visiting Torquay. Again a lovely meal. Service good and staff very polite...a much better experience than we had in the Indian restaurant over the road!

Nursery and Preschools

Hatfield Nursery

9 St Margaret's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4NW, UK – 01803 316611

Hatfield Nursery is the best Nursery in Torbay. Not only do they treat the children as family, but the facilities are absolutely fantastic. Huge outdoors area to play, soft play area indoors and lots of different rooms for each age group so that specific development is obtained for the correct age. All 3 of my children have been in Nursery here. My eldest started at 3 years old, my second child started at 2 years old and my youngest has been there since the age of 7 months (he is now 3). They also run an after school club and holiday club for older children. My children love the staff and love going here regularly. I could not find a better place for my children to be looked after and thrive while I am at work.

St Margaret's Primary Academy

Barewell Rd, Torquay TQ1 4PA, UK – 01803 327090

This is the best primary school/academy to send your child to I am a former student who went there and everyone who I went to that school with are almost to sets in our secondary

I go there


21 Carlton Rd, Torquay TQ1 1NA, UK – 01803 290030

An amazing friendly environment and understanding staff. They work with the parent to achieve the best for their child taking everything into consideration from toilet training to fussy eaters. They work hard to make sure children are reaching new goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and spend time out of the establishment on every occasion the weather allows, with trips to the zoo or the park etc. I sent my oldest son here and now he has started school he is excelling, which I partly believe is due to excellent early education. I will be sending my youngest son to this nursery next term and I am confident this is the best choice for him as the owner is an amazing lady who treats every child individually.

The breakfast club and after school club give the nursery children a chance to mix with other age groups and prepares them for school later on. The staff are great and really do work hard with the kids so they must have the patience of a saint tucked away in there. When weather permits the children get to go out on regular trips. Our grandson has progressed in leaps and bounds since going to Phoenix. Can't praise them highly enough.
