Dithered between how to rate, very good, or excellent. Because it ticked all our boxes I had to rate it excellent. We had like an apartment. Kitchenette, lounge/dining area which was perfect for self catering for families. Somewhat reluctant to extol its virtues too much being selfish, but on the other hand only feel it fair to share! Beds were... More

A warm pleasant welcome from Roy. We were showed straight away to a clean and comfortable room with a well appointed clean bathroom with everything we needed for our weekend including safe parking. Having a front door key meant ease of access after hours. The breakfast was well cooked and we were served quickly. Roy was informative about the area,... More

We travelled with another couple and had a large 2 bedroom suite with a kitchen and living area which was really useful as the weather wasn't good so we were able to stay... More

We stayed at Anstey Lea from May 26th-May 30th. We came in around 4am and Roy, the owner had set out keys and provided instructions on how to get into the hotel that late. We stayed in 2 apartments with a kitchen and living area with my parents. It was perfectly set out and clean. Great location and quiet. Roy... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated exceptionally well. This is a family run hotel which is evident in how welcome you are made. I'm sure plenty of people would moan about slightly dated decor. But I think the fantastic breakfast of fresh fruit, cereals an full English plus the fact that each day the tea and coffee facilities... More

Just returned from a long weekend's stay at the hotel. Owner was very friendly and knowledgable of the area. Rooms were very clean, bed very comfortable and there was a really powerful walk in shower which was a pleasant surprise! Will definitely return here next time we want to stay in Torquay. Great value!
