Guests Expect Free WiFi

Ask yourself what you require from your hotel when taking a short break in Torquay, or anywhere else for that matter, home or abroad? One of them has to be free Wifi, along with good food and great facilities our guests are increasingly asking for the ‘Wifi code’.

According to a recent study, Wi-fi is the most important feature a hotel can offer their guests, even more important than luxury mattresses, gymnasium or free breakfast and parking. Other studies suggest that over a quarter of British people would not stay in a hotel if it did not offer free Wifi. Guests expect to get a high performance, safe, fast wireless internet connection and, for many, this is the main criteria when selecting a hotel.

Here at the Lincombe Hall Hotel we have always had free Wifi in our lounge areas but, wanting to keep up with our guests wants and needs, we have just finished the installation of free Wifi across the entire hotel, including all public areas and bedrooms.  We anticipate the need for internet connection by our guests to carry on escalating and do not intend to disappoint!

So if you are considering a short break in Torquay and Wifi is top on your list of priorities when choosing your hotel, why not book the Lincombe Hall, not only are we award winning with great food and facilities but we now offer all our guests exactly what they have come to expect in this very modern age.





The Great Gorillas Trail

If you have visited the English Riviera or Exeter over the last month you cannot have failed to notice the giant gorilla sculptures dotted around – 30 in all! 

Paignton Zoo have come up with the idea to celebrate 90 years of conservation and to help raise awareness and money for the plight of the Cross River gorillas of Nigeria, the world’s most endangered species, to the point of near extinction.

You can print off a trail map and every time you locate one of the beautifully designed sculptures you are encouraged to register it on line by ‘checking-in’. Those that can find them all will be entered into a draw and has the chance to win a trip to Paignton Zoo to meet the real gorillas up close.
