Two of us stayed here in the deluxe double room with sea view on 5th to 7th December and found it to be a delight. The room was spacious and clean as was the shower room / toilet. The cafe / restaurant was impeccable as were the rest of the public areas I saw and the staff that I met... More

Everything about this hotel is clean and modern. We booked a room with a sea view which was definitely worth it. The evening meal in the restaurant was one of the best I've had for a long time and the waiters were excellent. The only downside was that if you're staying on a Sunday night, the restaurant is closed and... More

At last someone has taken over what used to be a very dreary B&B called the Regency Hotel and transformed it into a beautiful, tasteful and elegant venue. It not only boasts some luxurious boutique style bedrooms, but a gorgeous continental style cafe and patisserie. The staff are well trained and well presented. The food is good and the prices...

Many thanks for your kind words. We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us. We did compromise on the parking so we could have our beautiful terrace out the front. With free on road parking all around the hotel we felt it was worth it. We hope this did not impact too much on your stay with us. We... More

We bought a groupon voucher for an evening meal at this hotel and decided it would be nice to stay over. My partner spent quite a lot on this treat and we were a bit miffed to find a deal shortly after on groupon for a 2 night stay at the same price! Anyway, the hotel is situated in a... More

I was sorry to hear you found the hotel too warm. As you said it has been a mild November. All the radiators in our rooms are individually controlled so you can turn them off. We do also provide fans in each room. Unfortunately air conditioning in our building is not an option. The groupon deal for accommodation was for... More

Following viewing the Hotel through a well known Holiday agent, I booked the room for my wife, me and our 2 children and paid a supplement for an additional child in the room. However when booking in with the Hotel I was then charged a further £50, I argued my point that this was incorrect but was met with a... More

I was sorry to hear that you had a problem when you stayed with us. The room you occupied is a family suite and has two rooms sharing an en-suite bathroom. We have tried very hard to work with the agents to market and charge this family suite correctly as we would not wish to mislead anybody. So much so... More

Have just returned from a 2 night stay with my mother who has Alzheimer's. We stayed in the Devonshire suite, which had an adjoining twin room which suited our needs really well. All the staff were really friendly, and very helpful- you really felt that nothing was too much trouble, so thank you all very much. The breakfast was super,... More

A casual conversation (with two local residents) led us to this venue. We were staying locally (not at the hotel) and took the opportunity to visit the Cafe for afternoon tea. The greeting, food quality, prices, service and decor were excellent. I thoroughly recommend the chocolate chip scones with the Devon Cream Tea !!! The owners obviously researched the market...
