I recently stayed just for one night on business. I found the staff to be very helpful, especially Tiffany. The food was excellent, I ordered from the main menu for service to my room. Breakfast set me up for the day, and the view from the dining room on a sunny morning, certainly puts you in a nice frame of... More

Not located in central Torquay but close to Meadfoot Beach. Beautiful Gardens with outdoor swimming pool (weather permitting). Great views from the rooms at the front. Excellent food at dinner + breakfast - but you'll pay £4.80 for a pint of beer! Heard that at the hight of the recent storms pebbles from the beach were reaching the top floor... More

This was our second stay at this hotel in Torquay. A wonderful location with superb views over Lyme Bay. Still with good access to local amenities. The staff are really friendly and attentive. The rooms are of a good standard, and all our meals were of good quality. Parking can be a little tight.

The view from the front of the hotel is stunning on a sunny day you be in the south of France. The room we had was a back room with no real view but was... More

a good friendly hotel. Yes certainly . A little tired in places. Food is good but I believe the chef changes quite a lot. I asked for a Continental Platter breakfast which should have had artisan cheeses and meats. The meats were good. The cheese, a cheddar from a block. Now the following day a lady on the next table...
