Lovely hotel, comfortable , Breakfast really tasty and provided a good choice which was then on to being cooked to perfection. We will definitely stay again next time we visit Torquay for a couples weekend with the kids!

We have spent 3 great nights here, the rooms were comfortable, the food was fantastic and the hospitality was second to none. The walk to the harbour was only 5 minutes, and we intend to return for another stay late spring or early summer. Thanks for a great break. Dave and Jan.
