After after having my account hacked over a weekend amd spending 4 hours on the phone (getting nowhere) i arrived at the Torquay branch. They where very helpful and blocked my account from future fraud however this also meant I could not use it either. However a week later and still locked out of my own account but the pending fraudulent payment where paid? Yet another visit to the branch and again they could mot be more helpful however still.not got access to my funds and now 10 days later. Thank you team in Torquay for your part in trying to resolve this for me.

Parkhill Medical Practice

11 Parkhill Rd, Torquay TQ1 2AL, UK – 01803 212489

Brilliant Surgery with Kind receptionist , Wonderful Nurses, and Brilliant Doctors, They are all so helpful. Its a brilliant surgery and I think we should be grateful to all within PARKHILL practice.

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.

Torbay Hospital

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

After a close family member was admitted who was and is extremely Ill the treatment she was given by all areas from a+e to the assessment ward then to Turner ward has been absolutely faultless. Their attention to detail astounding and their personal one to one comfort giving exemplary. Not only the above but the comfort they have given to our family we could not find enough positive words to describe how valuable they've been. As a whole family we think you're amazing and can't thankyou enough .

Had two visits to A &E in a month, I was very impressed both times, my aunt if 91 with cancer was treated with dignity and respect with special care. My husband received excellent treatment after having an accident and breaking his arm yes we did have quite a long wait both times but this isn't the staff fault they did what they could both times. Well done teams

How church should be, open and friendly to all especially the younger congregation. Fabulous

Although I am a catholic I have been to several services in this church and always found everyone very kind and courteous. Pastor John is a wonderful man and does great work there. I feel so sad the previous reviewer was disappointed as we are all Gods children.

Living Waters Pentecostal Church

358 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2DQ, UK – 01803 552538

Skip It Torbay

Telmar House, Barton Hill Way, Torquay TQ2 8JG, UK – 01803 329444

Called and booked a skip Tuesday afternoon, this was delivered to a site in Paignton 8.30 Wednesday and collected Thursday at 10.30. What else can you ask for. We were previously using another colourful skip company in Torbayskips. They were rude and un helpful on the phone. so they lost this one and all the future skips. Thanks and a great professional service with Pleasant staff

Skip it had the best price we found, delivered and picked up promptly and professionally.

Rainbow Skip Hire

Happaway Rd, Torquay TQ2 8ES, UK – 01803 411181

Booked a skip late Tuesday and they delivered am the next day. Drivers and office staff very friendly and professional. Needed some advise on plasterboard which they gave me, another skip firm could not help me with the question. Don't have skips very often but would use these again and have told my friends and colleagues to use them. Great service Rainbow Skips. Keep up the great service!

We have had many skips from this company in the last 6 months and could not be happier with the service provided. Skips are delivered and collected promptly. Communication is great and when there have been unexpected delays we have been kept informed. Anj is always a pleasure to speak to and very professional...even when a few bits that shouldn't have gone in the skip did (sorry again). Would definitely recommend.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Torquay

Memories Bistro

68 Fore St, Torquay TQ1 4LX, UK – 01803 322224

Well what can I say, except that on Saturday we ate here for the first time we had to book in advance as over the past few years it was always fully booked. We had 3 courses and each one was as good as each other. The fillet steak cut like butter and melted in your mouth. The price was also very good. Hazel was a fantastic host and Gordon a fantastic chef. We will definitely book again when we are next in Torquay. And we would highly recommend that you book at least 3 weeks in advance as the restaurant only opens on Friday and Saturdayy.

Wonderful food, from a couple who are passionate about customer service and great food. Thoroughly recommend

Biancos Italian Restaurant

38 Torwood St, Torquay TQ1 1EB, UK – 01803 293430

Amazing can I give 6,7 or ten stars, Great authentic Italian food great service too

Love this little restaurant. Lovely staff lovely food, you will need to book a table tho, but ok won't be disappointed!!

Rock Garden Cafe Bar

40-42 Swan Street, Torquay TQ2 5ES, UK – 01803 200558

Amazing baked pizzas and vegan options. Big selection of alcohol and soft drinks. Two floors and one of the biggest beer gardens in the bay. Great live music often played.

This place was recommended by the manager of the hotel we were staying at. Took us a while to find it. Took the scenic route according to my Google maps. Got there eventually. Guy behind the bar was friendly and had a sense of humour. Always a good start in my book. Ordered drinks. Food cane quickly and hot. They had music on that night we visited. I enjoyed it but don't think it was hubby's cup of tea but u ought can't have everything. Lol.

Nursery and Preschools

Preston Community Pre-School

Preston Baptist Church/Old Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2RB, UK – 01803 520712

Preston Community Preschool has been great for my two children; nurturing, friendly, supportive and encouraging. The setting has a great outdoor space, which the children are encouraged to explore. There are always an array of activities on offer for the children, which are different every day. It’s really helped my children to become independent learners. Although it took a while for my son to settle, his key worker went over and above to help him ease into preschool life. My youngest went in on her first day and didn’t look back...!

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.

Phoenix

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.

Barton Hill Academy

Barton Hill Rd, Torquay TQ2 8JA, UK – 01803 327161

A wonderful school offering so much more than others in the area. I've watched my children's self-confidence leap through the support of very dedicated teachers and staff. Children and their families are made to feel so welcome and shown that learning really can be fun.

Today (16/10/17), I again visited Barton Hill Academy with a 5m planetarium. This time 180 Year 2 and Year 5 students enjoyed peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, handling a meteorite and travelling across a future colonised Solar System. Thank you Barton Hill Academy for another very pleasant visit. Today (19/10/16), with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 5m digital planetarium experience to 90 Year 2 students at Barton Hill Academy. On arrival I was warmly welcomed by the teaching staff and site manager. The morning was well-organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed viewing the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station and learning about the Solar System and the different types of stars. Thank you Barton Hill Academy for a very pleasant visit.

The Abbey School

Torquay TQ1 4PS, UK – 01803 327868

Abbey School Nursery has been the perfect place for my daughter to mix with other children and to adjust to school life, and I am so very pleased with the progress that she has made in her early developmental stages. I would recommend Abbey School Nursery in Torquay to any parent looking for similar for their child.

Public & Preparatory Schools

EF Academy

E F House, Castle Rd, Torquay TQ1 3BG, UK – 01803 202932

I’ve past 3 weeks there and that was really good ! Teachers and staffs are always taking care of you. I’ve learnt a lot and I recommend this school to you.

Very good school, perfect teachers as they are always to help even if you don't have any problems, member of staff are amazing, fantastic environment. Talking about EF is actually talking about a new family and very good friends that you are going to make throughout the year. Since I came, the members of the staff have been very attentive and the students will not let you alone never at school. There are a range of culture, people from different countries with different perspectives and mindset, it is just a global environment. Strongly recommended.

Priory Catholic Primary School

St Catherine's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4NZ, UK – 01803 328480

Love this school

St Cuthbert Mayne Joint School

Trumlands Rd, Torquay TQ1 4RN, UK – 01803 328725

I went to this school when I was a children and I always had to deal with abuse and people making fun of my legs. I now work as a train for pe and have fun rowing. Go through the abuse and keep trying to grow leg muscles.

A school that has gone from being one of the best in the country to being one of the worst but pleased to say it's on its way back to the top. Great morals which I think they need to focus on teaching the students
