Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean, bright and with comfortable beds. The bathroom was large and was again exceptionally clean. Although our room faced the car park in the main we were still able to enjoy the wonderful views to Exmouth and beyond. All the staff were excellent, we were made to feel welcome on arrival and this continued... More

A party of 8 took over rooms 5,6,7 & 8 for the weekend. Each room was different but to a lovely high standard and we all popped in each other's room for a "nose!" The views over the Downs, the sea and far into the distance, Exmouth etc was breathtaking. The staff, lead by Janet, were very helpful, friendly and... More

Large room, huge shower and good facilities, No Wi-Fi in the room, or at least no information given about it in info book or by staff, but I didn't ask. Friendly and pleasant staff nice room and good... More

Lovely hotel with a fantastic position overlooking the sea. We found room seven to be a spotless and comfortable room with a nice bay window to sit and admire the seaview. Bed was extremely comfortable and the huge bathroom had an excellent shower. Plentiful supply of tea and coffee in the room which was replenished daily when the room was... More

7 Jan 2014. Staff were friendly and helpful,Wifi worked well, breakfast was good, parking was easy. The coastal sea view from the hotel was amazing. Overall the hotel offers basic accommodation and is reasonable value, our stay was quite comfortable. This was the smallest double bed we have ever tried to sleep in.

Travelled down from Wiltshire to do some Christmas shopping in Torquay having booked room 7 a few weeks before. On arrival we were shown to a lovely room with a great sea view and huge bathroom, plenty of tea and coffee in room with some super shortbread biscuits. Nice television to watch and a very nice comfortable bed. Room was... More

A lovely view out over the bay and easy access to Babbacombe Downs. The room has recently been renovated so very comfortable and spacious. Staff were very helpful, especially when we locked our key inside the room!

Only in for a one night stay as a treat away from kids and homelife, but would certainly go back again, ideally for a longer stay. Lovely detached building, with superb sea views and onsite parking. Room was of a very high standard, nice furniture, and although we were in one of the smaller rooms (7) the bathroom was enormous!... More
