We have stayed here many times and have made friends with countless others who also stay multiple times. You really can't beat the value for money and the quality and quantity... More

This is a welcoming friendly hotel. The food is fab, and the staff great really enjoyed our stay and all being well will go there again in the spring. The decorations were the best we have ever seen in any hotel and the evening entertainment was great especially the brass band on Xmas night.

Had a brilliant 5 days with family and friends. Hotel was clean and full of Christmas decorations just like Aladdin's cave. Hotel staff were friendly and could not do enough for you. They would sort anything for you no matter how big or small the request. They made our stay very enjoyable. Would definitely go back again.

Luke, his wife and their staff were there for our requirements and needs and if you wanted more you only had to ask. My wife, who is diabetic,... More

The bedrooms were clean and simply furnished which is all that is needed for a holiday.There was entertainment most nights and we had a night at the theatre which was near-by. A bus to Torquay...
