Mercure Hotels in Torquay

Torquay is a popular seaside resort town on the English Channel, famous for its sandy beaches and pretty town centre. The best thing to do on holidays here is simply relax – and we have one of the best spa hotels in Torquay and the surrounding area. The Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel is a contemporary 4-star hotel just 20 miles north and on the River Exe. You’ll be within walking distance to Exeter town centre and a short drive to Torquay and the beaches around Torbay. Relax in the hotel’s heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi, or work out in the state of the art fitness centre. Guests can dine in at the on-site restaurant, the Gate House, where chef Damian Martin serves up contemporary British cuisine featuring local products. From the hotel, you can spend the day in Torquay, soaking up the sun at the award-winning beaches like Maidencombe, Watcombe, Oddicombe and Babbacombe. You can also visit Kents Cavern, a collection of prehistoric caves; Torre Abbey, an ancient monastery founded in 1196; and Living Coasts, a large coastal zoo and aquarium with seals, penguins and birds. The best way to see all that the English Riviera has to offer, is by walking along the coast, where you can see some of the hidden coves and take in the breath-taking views across the Bay. Start at Kents Cavern, then walk through the woodland to Meadfoot Beach and continue down the marine drive. You’ll come out at the coastal path to Anstey’s Cove and then arrive back in Torquay – an easy but rewarding walk!
