I have just returned home after visiting Torquay and staying at the hotel with my family. There were 3 adults and two children. The owner supplied a high chair and also a travel cot, both were clean and a godsend as we didn't have to bring our own. We stayed for 3 nights and it was just lovely to have... More

We visited here at very short notice due to being let down elsewhere and have to say we all walked into luxury! 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.
