    This was my first time staying at the Rainbow International so I didn't really know what to expect. The place is huge, much bigger than I thought from looking at the pictures, it would certainly be easy to get lost here! Overall though the quality of everything is very nice, the room was cosy, the beds was comfy (I almost fell asleep as soon as I found the room!) the staff are very friendly as well. Also the food here is good and piping hot, although I didn't opt in for dinner, just breakfast, but still good all the same. The beach is about a 5 minute walk just down the road with a couple of shops on the way if you want to get a paper or anything else. Or there's a Sainsbury's about 10 minutes away by car, I would recommend a sat nav though! In general this made for a good break and a change of scene, I would definitely like to come back again some time in the future.

    Location excellent for beach & local transport; grandchild enjoyed the breakfasts and the indoor pool. Staff always very helpful. Breakfast was a well cooked basic full English buffet. Dinner was well cooked and presented at the buffet. However, with the emphasis on mass catering (250+ per night) the dining room is more like a canteen than a restaurant. The hotel itself is very tired but clean and the distance from reception to furthest rooms is 100 yards approx. through a bit of a maze but at least colour coded! If refurbished it would rate its 3 stars.

    We had a fantastic stay.The staff were very helpful and friendly.It was very clean and tidy,Breakfast was good value and quality,with great service. We would have liked Sunday roast at the hotel but would have had to pay for a three course when we only required one main course.Good location close to the sea and near a great local pub the Bull and Bush.Our room was very comfortable offering great views.Our stay was that good we have already booked another stay.

    A pleasant time spent at the Rainbow! We only did bed and breakfast for 3 nights, full English breakfast buffet in the morning was great, with choices of cereals and drinks. Our room was adequate maybe a little TLC needed on the decor, beds were comfy that was the main thing! The staff at the Rainbow were always pleasant and cheerful and always there to help with a smile. Evening entertainment was enjoyable and bar prices I thought were reasonable too! On the whole I really enjoyed my stay at the Rainbow international hotel, and yes I'd go back again.

    Excellent value for money. Food was very good and staff were very helpful. My only negative comment was 7 light bulbs in my room were not working. This can be solved by weekly check by cleaning staff and report any replacement required to Hotel Reception. I would certainly use Rainbow Hotel for future bookings when staying in Torquay

    We stayed on the Saturday night over the Bank Holiday and it had been booked as a treat for our son's 8th birthday. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had booked a family room, which was small, but adequate. I had earlier asked for a table to be decorated with balloons and a cake provided for our son's birthday. This was done without any fuss and was a great surprise to our son! The food was excellent for both the evening meal and the breakfast, the evening meal being good value for money. The location of the hotel was very good, only being a few minutes walk to the seafront - to which we went in the evening and enjoyed the funfair set up for the Bank Holiday. Would recommend it.

    This was our second visit to the Rainbow and we would definitely stay there again. The food was good; the staff friendly. Our room was spacious, clean but a little worn in places. The food was good and plentiful; only criticism being lack of variety of desserts on the one evening that we dined in. Would suggest seagull spikes to be erected on the balconies as we were disturbed by their cries every morning at about 5.30 until they decided to fly away! On the whole the Rainbow is a good base, very convenient, near to the sea front and local amenities.

    The hotel was very clean and tidy, although a little old fashioned,and in a convenient location, The staff were excellent, very polite and helpful. The self service breakfast was also good. And nice to have evening entertainment. The one problem was the heat, it was an exceptionally hot week, but there were no fans and the hotel could do with air conditioning, as in the entertainments room, it was very uncomfortable at times. We would go again! ,

    when looking online at the hotel,it was advertised as suitable for stag and hen parties,so thought it would be ideal for myself and 12 female friends. on arrival it was clear we were the youngest there,and most of us in our forties!!! it should be advertised as suitable for over sixties!! the rooms where clean and big,however the whole hotel was extremely hot and it made it difficult to sleep. The breakfast was good,however when asking a member of staff if she had salt,she replied,i don t speak English!!!! not really the best in an English hotel!! It was ok for 80 pound for two nights,but doubtful to stay again.
