Triton Galleries (Devon) Ltd

26 Torwood St, Torquay TQ1 1EB, UK – 01803 296064

My wife and I have just purchased a painting at this gallery. We were in Torquay about 8 years ago and remembered this gallery so went back there this week. It is a great gallery with a variety of different art. The staff are great. We don't buy many pieces and don't look the "type" but Claire was really welcoming and didn't judge us by how we talked or how we looked! Claire knew a lot about the art and the artists. She was not pushy but gave us plenty of space. We are looking forward to receiving our painting when it is dry enough for them to transport 😁

Doble Jewellers

24 Fleet Street, Torquay TQ1 1DB, UK – 01803 297334

Always helpful and knowledgable staff. I love the selection they have here, there is something for absolutely everyone...from your standard engagement ring for all budgets to your more eccentric tastes...perhaps a solid silver Marmite jar might be your bag??🤔 The store is always immaculate and the displays beautiful. I spot something new every time I go in there, and I often go in there just to look, and they don't mind that at all either.

Love this place.

Friendly staff who know what they are talking about...and if they don't they ask another member of staff who knows more! Not expensive either.

SD Fire Alarms

302 Union St, Torquay TQ2 5QZ, UK – 01803 659465

The Company is with new owners and the dispute I had with the old one has now been swiftly resolved. I ordered a Carbon Dioxide Alarm from SD Fire Alarms on line. in January 2017. When it arrived, it was clearly old stock. My complaint was not answered. HOWEVER as soon as the company's r new owners took it over, I received a phone call offering to replace the old alarm immedietely. A new alarm arrived promptly, which is of a higher spec than the one ordered. This is great customer service from the new team.

I just wanted to say thanks for getting the test key to me so quickly before the audit. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone +++

Car Audio Equipment


Torre Station, Newton Rd, Torquay TQ2 5EU, UK – 01803 292241

For such a small store, there's a really good range of products and services. The staff are very helpful and knowledge. Whether it's to change a bulb or recommending a product, these guys have never let me down. Highly recommend this place. Just note that this isn't the place to go to for an MOT or a tyre service. That's the Halfords Auto place that you'll find on the other side of town.

A great spot to pick up a few things for the push bike , but I'm slightly concerned about the expertise of the mechanics, due to an experience I have had.


108 Newton Rd, Torquay TQ2 7AB, UK – 01752 636363

Ford Vospers are and have been brilliant. Our problems are Actually with our Brand New Ford Galaxy Titanium X itself. One of the Drive Rams had to be Replaced, due Taillift NOT Opening as it should. Now Resolved. The Other is the OUT of DATE SatNav, (by 2 Years), which we're Unable to Update ourselves. This needs to be done by Ford, who KNOW ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AND CANNOT as they DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE RELEVANT INFORMATION. e.g. An A Road that has been OPEN and IN USE FOR 2 YEARS IS NOT RECOGNISED, IT'S NONE EXISTENT !!!😤😠😬

Great car great service and helpful staff from you first phone call to you to first visit that reason for having ford car. 5 star. *****

Motorcycle and Scooters


Broomhill Way, Torquay TQ2 7QL, UK – 01803 616164

I only just bought a ZX7R from this company using their free delivery service as I'm over four hours away. I didn't view it before and Paul was completely honest with his description and photographs of the bike through ebay. I felt it was a stress free and completely non pressured sale obviously passionate about the company and bikes not just trying to just sell a bike. After describing the bike and services there was no hard sale, i think he would have been quite happy for me to put the phone down and call back after a think. There was a check of bike done immediately where they replaced the old battery for no cost and included a checklist of their checks with the sale. The delivery service was also spot on with the 7 day delivery it was on the seventh day to suit my schedule and the transport provided is clearly marked and adequate for the job. I'd happily buy another from them unseen if they have the right bike in the future.

So just had a new chain fitted to my GSXR1000 K3, when I went to pay it was only £13.50 inc VAT for the labour! Absolute Bargain! Friendly knowledgeable staff, would 100% recommend!!

Jaccol Motorcycles Ltd

335 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2EP, UK – 01803 540081

In response to the last 2 reviews, i have used Colin at Jaccol for about 5 years, working on my bikes which included a Harley Fatboy, a GSX1400, a Harley Softail Deluxe, and a Suzuki B King.....and am trusting him to do some work on my collectable bikes namely a 1980 KH 400 and an 81 RD250....all bikes of a value....i find him, his business and his prices Honest, and bloody value for body is perfect, but he strives to be.

Fantastic and prompt service, kept up to date with state of repairs, and reasonably priced

J C Motor Cycle Training

31 Crownhill Park, Torquay TQ2 5LW, UK – 01803 295381

Excellent training with Tom, enjoyed every minute despite the cold! Now looking forward to getting on a bigger bike.....

Have just done the Direct Access course, having never ridden a bike before. Day 1 was the CBT with Craig, who i must thank for his patience in getting me up to the required standard. Then moved on to the next stage (and the bigger bikes) with Martin, he definitely had his work cut out. Each day i learnt a little more until without realising it, i was soon riding around Exeter on a 650 !!!! He took me through all the different skills that i would need and took time to explain how to do them correctly. At all times, i received reassurance and never felt i was being ignored or left to 'just get on with it'. I have great delight in saying, that today i passed both parts of the test. I cannot recommend JC Motorcycle training highly enough. Once again, thank you to the instructors Craig and Martin you deserve a pat on the back, cheers, Pete.

Wonderful service from Freya at the LANCOME counter who listened to my concerns regarding the purchase of a new foundation.

A fine example of really good customer service.

Wren RP, The Willows, Browns Bridge Rd, Torquay TQ2 7BJ, UK – 01803 613143

Good sized store with a decent amount of stock, and it has a handy car park out the front, making large purchases easy to pick up and get to the car. The only downside is it could do with better signs from the main road leading passed the bottom retail park

I'd like to say I was impressed with a member of staff (Apologies I didn't get your name). I was in the shop approaching closing time and just briefly perusing the car seats a member of staff came over and asked if I needed help. I Assumed it was to usher me out of the door in time for closing but in fact it was the opposite. She answered some questions I had and even offered to take various different seats down and test them in my car. I declined the kind offer as it was just a brief enquiry but had I not known the time I would never have thought it was 3 minutes from closing time. Thank you for the excellent service.

First visit ok, second visit yesterday awful. No customer service, it's no wonder shops are shutting and people are opting to spend their hard earnt money online instead. Clearly inconvinient having customers in yesterday, got in the way of having a chat whilst drapped over the counter 👎

This shop has amazing clothes but its just way too expensive for me.

Tris Gruber Computer Services

8 Arden Dr, Torquay TQ2 6DZ, UK – 07514 064297

I have recently used this company to resolve a fairly critical software issue with my laptop, which was dealt with promptly and to my complete satisfaction. The fact that Tris carries out his initial assessment at the customer's home is particularly helpful, and although my particular issue required the laptop to be taken away, it was returned within 24 hours and I was kept fully abreast of progress throughout. Tris himself was pleasant, courteous and professional in every respect, and is clearly an expert in his field. His charges are also very reasonable and represent excellent value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone with a "computer problem".

We had a problem with our PC which we use for our business after an update prevented us from logging in. Tris was brilliant and came out and sorted it in a timely and professional manner. We have used other people in the past but would definitely use Tris again in the future and also recommend him to others. Reliable, nicely priced and professional.

A very professional company and prices are the same as, if not cheaper than the bigger companies. Well done lads will recommend you to anyone.

Extremely Helpful Had not dealt with INTERFAZE Computers before, but they were recommended to me. Explained the software problem I was experiencing and was immediately looked after as if I was a regular customer. Problem now solved and I am well impressed with their knowledge and service. I know now who to go to in the future when I cannot solve these issues myself. Many thanks.

Bay Cycles

1 Foxlands Walk, Torquay TQ1 4NL, UK – 01803 316785

Outstanding service. You are a customer for life, and they remember all of us, which is what makes the difference. I don't seem to be able to write another review so on the back of this one ....... I am an inexperienced cyclist but I feel as valued as an expert. I went back to the store yesterday after a year. and was greeted like a long lost friend by Lisa and Jez .We discussed some issues I'm having with my cycling and we made a plan over a cup of tea. Glad to hear the business is doing well. They are passionate about the sport and want to spread the love

I’ve recently joined the cycle to work scheme and scoured the bay for a professional bike shop. After assessing many, I chose Bay cycles because of their excellent one to one service and advice. I ordered a Trek Hydraulic 2018 model and what an excellent choice, including all of the kit to get me to work. After six weeks, I had an email for a free service, so I drove to Bay cycles, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to bring my bike along. When I arrived I was greeted with a coffee and I explained that I couldn’t bring my bike because I had my three children, where they amazingly offered to pick my bike up from my house, without charge and service my bike for me for free. What an amazing service. I would highly recommend Bay cycles if you’re a serious bike fanatic or a novice like me. Brilliant!

Fish Bikes

104b Teignmouth Rd, Torquay TQ1 4EX, UK – 01803 214145

Really helpful, only place that I went to that had a real opportunity to make a lot more money out of me but instead gave me great advice and got me set up as a new rider and saved me £100s. I didn’t even buy the bike from the store but did the full set up just because I bought the rest of my gear from there! 2nd time in the last 10 years I’ve been to Craig, second time as a really happy customer. Great to see how far the business has come on, thoroughly deserved and the store is awesome! Cheers mate

Met Craig this week after a double fault with a hire bike as I run Grumpy Bike Hire.Craig dealt with both repairs very quickly and at a fair prices.I will use Craig at Fish Bikes again

Booked equipment online for a Friday collection. It was also meant to come with a 30% online discount. When I arrived it wasn't available for collection, it was still in Newquay. So a wasted journey. Collected it on Monday, it worked fine and did the job. The team were pleasant and helpful though when it came to paying I was initially asked to pay the non-discounted price.

I have been hiring equipment from South West Hire and Sales for a few years now, I have always received excellent customer service from the guys at the Torquay branch. Prices are competitive and they are always very helpful.

I was surprised at the fast rate he worked, and the job was complete within 4 hours (I was previously quoted over 8 hours by local competitors at a much higher price). Fantastic service, me and my husband have been very happy with the end result.

The best Pandora store local to me I find (out of Torquay, Exeter, Plymouth, Bristol). Purely because it's not usually as busy as the others so can be in and out quicker. As the male in a relationship, I know what I'm looking for and hope to get in and out as quick as I can and I find this the best for that! All staff very helpful and friendly to someone who is a bit clueless over all of it!

I’ve always visited Camoflague over and over because of Steve (Owner) or Nick, they’re able to get even some niche items they don’t sell in store. They have a changing room if you need to try stuff on and are really helpful in regards to knowledge about products etc. Reasonable prices, in some cases lower, in others marked up, but that’s the case with all small shops but I’m more than happy with that to support them. 5/5 - Keep on doing what you do

Top shop. Let down by another company and Camo store took my order, dispatched it same day despite being mid afternoon and I received my new Altberg Peacekeepers the very next morning. Very professional bunch and definitely will use them again

I had excellent customer service from Katy, a very helpful and considerate member of staff. She took her time to assist me and was so helpful and kind, even helping me take my purchases to my car. What an absolute asset. A great, supportive, friendly staff member who deserves recognition and praise. Thank you Katy.

The Office Outlet at Torquay recently dealt with the printing of more than thirty large photos with some being printed on canvas and fitted to wooden frames. The quality of the print was excellent and the service provided by Nicky was exceptional. She applied a huge amount of thought and effort to make the finished products the best they could be, which was fantastic. She was very interested in making sure we were completely pleased with our purchase. What a great service. My wife and I will be returning to the store again and will certainly recommend to others. Thank you and best wishes.

Wild Floral Designs

Unit 1, Rose Walk, St Anne's Rd, Torquay TQ1 3FA, UK – 07933 758104

I can't thank Louise enough for what she created for my recent wedding. You don't expect to go to a florist and say you are not keen on flowers and then for her to create something completely out of shells with not a flower in sight! It was perfect. My shell bouquet was stunning and something I will treasure for the rest of my life. As well as the 'flowers', Louise also dressed the room and tables and what she created was breathtaking. She really took on board our breach theme and what she created was far better than I ever could have imagined. Her work reduced a few people to tears because it was so beautiful and I have had endless compliments based on the uniqueness. Louise clearly really cares about her work and I could not have wished for anyone better to work with for my wedding. I am so lucky to have found her and would 100% recommend to anyone considering her for their wedding.

Absolutely over the moon with the flowers you created for our wedding-they were perfect. From the first meeting we knew we would love them. Your extensive knowledge and creativity helped two (very) indecisive people create their vision!! Throughout you were very professional and ensured no stress was needed. Thank you also for meeting with us on numerous occasions (sorry!!) and ensuring we were completely happy with our choice. An additional thankyou for the hire of the chair sashes too-perfect finish! p.s Sorry it's taken me a while-we received our final pics today and they reminded me how great your contribution was. I have, and I will recommend to all my friends. Thank you once again!!
