I don't believe that you stayed here. It's strange how we get these odd, wild reviews with no focus immediately after we've been on TV. Email us details of your stay and I'll take this review seriously and give you a proper response. More

We stayed at the Cavendish while visiting family in Torquay. The room was lovely, very clean and the staff were so friendly & helpful. We spent 3 nights there and it was such good value for money. Would definitely stay again.
