We arrived for two nights stay as were doing a tour of the south coast from up north. What a lovely room with a view. Okay we did pay for it but it was much better than we expected. The staff were very welcoming and the breakfast was lovely. We took a boat ride to brixham which was a lovely... More

Having forgot to renew our passports we decided on a short break Monday to Thursday to the "English Riviera". Having read decent reviews we booked the hotel which initially stated no sea view. What a pleasant surprise when we given the room named Seaspray which had a wonderful view over Ansteys Cove part of Babbacombe Bay. The room was large... More

I did read the reviews on this hotel before I booked a room for a Friday evening. We were given the room Westwinds and although probably one of the smallest hotel rooms we have stayed in,this has a good view and a balcony and that made up for the size of the room. We found all the staff to be... More

This is a nice hotel in a wonderful location. The view from the restaurant over Babbacombe Bay is fantastic. The dinner was simple but nicely presented and well cooked. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. There is plenty of car parking and the gardens and pool were well kept.

Basically this is a classic, british seaside hotel which gives the impression of being stuck in the past. The staff were kind, friendly and helpful- no problems at all in that department. Another positive is the pool which is a bonus and I didn't mind that it was cool. The location of the hotel is good- walkable to Wellswood shops,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July as part of a wedding party. The hotel doesn't look much from the road but is very impressive once through reception. We were there for a family wedding and everything went perfectly. The staff worked their butts off and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were all of good standard and... More

We stayed overnight at the gleneagles hotel for a family visit. The hotel is in a nice part of Torquay we checked in and the girl on reception was very nice and helpful. We went to our room which with cases can be awkward as the lift goes to one area but then you go down a couple of stairs... More
