Welcome to the Durrant House Hotel
IMPORTANT UPDATE - COVID-19
Following the announcement on Monday 4th January 2021, the Durrant House Hotel took the decision to temporarily close all three of our hotels, The Durrant House Hotel, The Torbay Court Hotel and the Wessex Hotel until further notice.
This also includes the closure of the R&R Spa, Restaurants and Bars within our hotels.
The Heart-breaking decision was made to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, guests & local communities during this unprecedented time.
