Torquay is part of the Devon coast often referred to as the English Riviera. The four-star Victorian Imperial Torquay is the site chosen for the 2019 Feast of Tabernacles in the United Kingdom. We encourage those attending this Feast site to stay together at the hotel to enjoy meals and fellowship in the plush and relaxing environment.
Services will be in the Haldon Suite in the hotel, which has a large sea-view window. The room holds a maximum of 80 in attendance, but we are negotiating for a larger meeting hall if there is sufficient interest.
The standard rooms are pleasant but may not have a sea view. For a modest additional cost you can have a sea-facing room where you will be rewarded with an ever-changing view of the bay. Spread over seven floors, this hotel has 152 stylish and comfortable bedrooms. They have, among other facilities, comfortable beds, plumped-up pillows, en suite bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Those accepted for the U.K. site will book directly with the hotel staff using the reference "COGWA," who will verify the booking against a list of those accepted to the site. So please make sure you are accepted before trying to book. If you have any special needs, please discuss them with the reservation team.
