The apartment we are in is absolutely beautiful, very clean and has everything in it we would ever need. The owner is very helpful and has even recommended us days out and local places to eat. Could not... More

Very good service and breakfast (fruit salad quite memorable) and situated near a street of shops with The Kents gastopub. On a frequent bus route into Torquay. Near Ansteys Cove which has a café. We've visited three times and had a pleasant stay each time.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Ansteys Cove Hotel. We had 2 adjoining rooms (14&15), 1 double en-suite & 1 twin en-suite for our 11 & 16 year old. There was a door on the landing outside the rooms that could be closed to make us more self contained. Location good, parking space in hotel car... More

Having stayed in this hotel last month I was impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms as you never know what you will find with an 'independent' hotel. I had a friendly welcome and the breakfast was enjoyable. This hotel is in an ideal location if you enjoy walking, I recommend Ansteys Cove.

We stayed for a couple of days recently and were made to feel very welcome. Room was very comfortable with plenty of tea and coffee, room cleaned daily. Good location and value for money. Would recommend.
