Hotel was up a bit of a hill from Torquay front so handy to get to venue (princess theatre). Good service nice hotel for money. Only negative was the road was heavily used by rowdy nightlife and noise kept me awake as they went passed the hotel in the early hours. Shame as all else good.

Very very friendly. Rooms a good size. Perfectly clean. Nothing is too much for them. Breakfast is served on warm plates. Free parking. Free wifi. Decent amount of tv channels. Lovely bathroom. Plenty of tea and coffee. On site bar-brilliant and not expensive. We have already booked to come back in December.

The hotel has a lot of very nice character features as it is over 100 years old. (which a lot of homes would die for, including my own) The hotel is in walking distance of the town and also the beach. Approx 10 minutes but may take longer on the way back as the hotel is located on a hill.... More

The room and bathroom were clean, and the beds were comfortable. Since it was extremely hot that day, we were afraid that we would not be able to... More

Placed within a two min walk from Torquay centre, this family hotel is packed with charm. You step into another decade. Nice, friendly staff. Breakfast served in a small room - with radio BBC2 ("only ch that doesn't offend anyone":) on..
