mydentist, St Marychurch Court, Torquay

Units 3, 2 St Marychurch Rd, Torquay TQ1 4TY, UK – 01803 328113

I was here with my mother today who has just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The whole team were lovely, very professional and so kind and caring towards Mum, thank you

I was a tad concerned when the service I'd used regularly for over 20 yrs moved but my worries were groundless. The new surgery is professional and well run, with terrific facilities and friendly faces. It may bigger, busier and less personal in some ways but the purpose is fulfilled and Mr Bak and his receptionist are still just as kind, considerate and helpful as ever they were before they moved. I'm not a huge fan of dentists in general but these guys make the experience quite bearable!

Shiphay and Torbay Implant Centre

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.

Miss this doctors Dr Craig is a great doctor was pleased he attended sherwell doctors but four d out its closed . will have to make appointment if I dare thank you

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.

Southover Medical Practice

Bronshill Rd, Torquay TQ1 3HD, UK – 01803 327100

Extremely helpful, doctors don't rush you and listen to what you say.. Easy to make appointments, and happy to refer you to specialists when needed.. Thank you..

Great service from Dr Walter today! Very helpful, efficient and kind. Thank you very much!

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

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.

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.

hello after my trip from plymouth for my op i want to thank every body for all there kindness and help thanks very much

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.

Mahabharat Balti House

52 Torwood St, Torquay TQ1 1DT, UK – 01803 215541

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!

Great food. Little bit expensive but great for an odd meal or treat.

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.
