I have just returned from a short break at the Torbay hotel with Shearing Holidays and have paid an additional premium for a sea view however, the room was so damp (Room 400) I could not see through the windows. The bed was positioned under the windows and therefore the bed was damp (I slept with my clothes on) I... More

We stayed for 3 days in this typical Bay hotel. Having stayed a few times in a Shearing hotel we found this to be the best one as far as the décor was concerned. We have learned to pay that extra to get a better room,This time overlooking the harbour. Very spacious. My husband is on a Gluten Free diet.... More

Clean room but far too hot and it wasn't a warm weekend so don't know why the room was so hot. Window only opened a tiny amount so we struggled to sleep. The breakfast was the most disorganised breakfast I've ever been to! We had to wait nearly 30 minutes for a table and then had no cutlery for ages... More

Great position on the harbour front in Torquay. Lobby and lounge area very nice and kept well. Even on site disco / ballroom and with its own swimming pool. Not used by us however. Breakfast on the Sunday stopped at 9.30 which meant either up and down early or miss out! The later for us. Bedroom was tiny with ensuite... More

We stayed on a Monday to Friday break at this hotel as part of a Shearings coach holiday.First impressions of the hotel were very good. There are three or four steps leading to the main door. Later on we realised, others doors in the hotel could be opened up for wheelchair access onto the pavement on the main road. There... More

I was quite shocked on arrival that my room allocated involved using a lot of stairs after getting out of the lift. I panicked because I knew that I could not "do the stairs". I returned to reception after seeing the problem and the receptionist (Carolina) resolved the problem quite quickly and managed to get me another room where only... More
