Just a one night stay. Room tiny, furniture and TV cheapest you can buy Supposedly dog friendly - the opposite being the truth. Breakfast tiny portions unless you specifically state you want more than 1 small sausage or more than 1 piece of bacon they serve the bare minimum. They allocate tables so you SIMPLY HAVE to use the table... More

Stayed overnight in a coach trip. Our room was bright, clean and a lovely size, with one of the mistt comfortable beds I've slept in. The bathroom was clean with a lovely shower. Dinner was nice not a wonderful choice but good and hot. Breakfast was a bit regimented where we were told to sit and wait to be served,... More

Just spent 4 days at Anchorage Hotel in Babbacombe.The room was a single and it felt claustrophobic and not enjoyable. The curtain was hanging off in the bathroom and the handle on the main door was not fixed on properly. The bed was adequate but the wardrobe and drawers were shabby and very dated. Most of the staff were helpful... More

We stayed two nights, and were disappointed that the actual experience wasn't all that special. We met two different duty managers who seemed positive and enthusiastic, but everyone else working here looked suicidal. We paid £80 a night for a £40 a night experience. Our room was a generous size, but on arrival the atmosphere was musty and smelt a... More

Oh dear. Where would you begin? Well, best begin by finding somewhere else! 1 An old styled hotel, shabby and cheap. 2 Room desperate for refurbishment. 3 En-suite was "a la 1960's village hall". 4 Door to en-suite, a sliding door that afforded little in the way of privacy. 5 Bed was hard and unforgiving. 6 Breakfast was swimming in...
