We stayed here for 7 nights. We paid extra for a front facing room, which was large with a lovely view over the tennis courts and out to sea. The room was very clean but the bed cover looked very old and worn, also did not like having a blanket instead of a duvet, and the shower curtain had mould... More

The bedroom was dated as are most older hotels but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room was... More

We stayed here on a 3 day KGB break and enjoyed our stay! Our room was really nice with a great view of the Torquay Tennis Centre and a good sea view. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Hotel although only 3star was better than expected. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Meals gave several choices and were plentiful. Although an old Georgian building the room was very comfortable and large with plenty of... More

Everything was well organised in a friendly and efficient manner.We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor at the front of the hotel.Excellent choice of menu at both breakfast and dinner and the food was plentiful ,tasty and always hot. Well done everyone!
