Full description

A particularly handsome multi-storey former hotel sitting in about one acre, the original building being complemented by a number of single and two storey modern extensions, collectively providing a vast amount of existing floor space in addition to the large extent of gardens and grounds.

The property, which is located conveniently for St Marychurch, one of Torquay’s most popular ‘suburbs’ offering a broad range of shopping facilities and amenities, is likely to catch the eye of developers who will see the almost graphic potential for a multiple unit residential scheme, a commercial alternative or a combination of the two (see Planning section below). Interested applicants are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority, the Torbay Council. Tel: 01803 207801. Website:

The property has in the past benefitted from Planning Consent for a comprehensive re-development scheme for the creation of 26 Extra Care Units, a restaurant and other communal facilities etc. under Application Ref: P/2009/0073/MPA, which had its life extended by virtue of Application Ref: P/2013/0057/MPA. It is understood that the Consent may now have expired and interested applicants are advised to seek confirmation from the Local Planning Authority.
