Stayed here for 2 nights on business and the overall stay was very pleasant and the staff were all very helpful and courteous. I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Torquay reagardless if it is business or pleasure as it is very near to the workplace and to the sea.

We stayed for two nights on a dinner bed and breakfast deal. We paid extra for a deluxe room and it was well worth it. A really big lovely room. The meal the first night was excellent and the second was good too. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we were there with friends and all agreed... More

The worst part of the hotel is the dining experience,French stick to go with soup was cut by a razor blade,if you asked for extra the answer was No! Breakfast... More

I visited this hotel on a 4 night coach tour. It has got to be the worst place I have ever stayed in my 87 year life. My room was so small, the drawers could not be opened without moving the bed, which I was unable to do. The room was hot as the sun was streaming in but I... More

I stayed in this hotel recently for 5 days, the decoration and cleanliness needs upgrading. At meal times the service was bad. When I put a simple requset to the staff (can we have another pot of tea) they said it was not possible because of the cost of teabags!!!, so we had to share a pot of tea for... More
