Welcome to this website displaying proposals for the regeneration of the Corbyn Head Hotel. Exciting plans are being drawn up to transform the site into a hotel fit for the 21st century which will provide a major boost to tourism in Torquay.
Who we are
Hotel completed by The Fragrance Group in Tasmania, Australia
The Fragrance Group is a property and investment company based in Singapore and also has a number of interests in the UK and Australia.
The Company’s founder owns 23 hotels in Singapore and the company has recently also acquired the Manchester Townhouse, the Crown Hotel in Harrogate, and the Lyndene and the Imperial in Blackpool. The Company has just completed the development of the Ibis Styles in Hobart, and is also currently developing seven other hotels in Australia. In Torbay, the group has acquired the Palace Hotel and the Corbyn Head Hotel in Torquay and the Park Hotel and the former Lighthouse in Paignton.
The Fragrance Group has appointed internationally renowned experts to help bring this exciting project forward.
Based in Torquay, architects Kay Elliott have worked on hotel and leisure projects around the globe from Blackpool to Bangkok, and from Salcombe to Sydney. Closer to home they designed the multi-award-winning Abbey Sands on Torquay seafront. The £12 million project was granted planning permission in 2012 and opened two years later.
Design and engineering consultants Arup have worked on world-famous projects from the Sydney Opera House, the Olympic venue the London Aquatics Centre, London’s Barbican Centre and the City of Manchester Stadium.
Consulting engineers Hoare Lea count Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Bristol’s Hengrove Leisure Centre and the Scarlet Hotel in Mawgan Porth among their award-winning projects.
