This was a pleasant stay. The room I was in was a little small and my view was not of the ocean, the bed was also hard, but when I visited the other guests of the group I was in and theirs were much larger with a beautiful sea view and a soft cloud like mattress topper, so if you... More

Stayed for one night with colleagues. The refurbished rooms are really nice, very comfortable. Unfortunately, one of my colleagues was given a room that hadnt been refurbished and was right next to the lift, had damp and when it started raining there was a leak! The restaurant was nice for breakfast, good selection and good staff. The leisure facilities are... More

Well appointed hotel with outstanding staff; nothing is too much trouble. Good restaurant with views over the pool. Lovely large bar area with views over the bay. Nice spa area although the indoor pool could be improved a bit. Only down side is that parking is very limited but the hotel is in the centre of Torquay and on the... More

Just come back from a 2 night break at this hotel, sorry to report quite disappointing. Parking was the first issue, then unable to reserve a table in the restaurant, room was ok but not anything to rave about. Queue for breakfast was unacceptable and was like a bun fight. The other problem for concern was the dogs, whilst I... More

I wont bang on about every minute detail of our stay, but as the title suggests we had a really disappointing time of it. Parking issues, rude staff, reservations for meals being made but not being put on the list, dirty cutlery at breakfast, asking for food which never arrived at breakfast, dirty glasses in the bar. Tiny, tired, faded... More

So disappointed that for the whole duration of our stay the outdoor pool was closed due to something being broken. We were told at check in that it would be open within two days at the most but never saw anyone working on it. The hotel is rundown and does not merit being a four star. Slightly annoyed also that...

Enjoyable stay this time but noticed a slight slipping of standards. Tired bedroom decor, unstable beds and allowing the dinner dress code to be flouted. However, staff very polite and attentive and food first class

I arrived on the Friday and was very pleased to find how clean and well appointed my room was. I had a sea view which I can recommend and was well worth the extra.. The food was very good with three course dinners and a buffet breakfast that supplied every cereal, fruit, breads and cooked foods you could wish for.... More
