Large lounge and dining room. Breakfast is available for those who require it. Free Wifi. Could do with a little tender care and a steep slope up to... More

Had not been to Torquay before and this hotel was picked randomly on late rooms.com. The hotel is on the front and about a mile from the centre of town. A bus stop is quite close and it is easy to get to town or Paignton or Brixham buses about every ten minutes.The hotel has a reasonable amount of parking.... More

I asked for a single room with a sea view and that is what I got. A room at the front where I could see the sea from my bed, very clean, comfortable and a lovely breakfast. Nice and relaxing just what I needed!

Booked through late rooms & told room had a sea view and breakfast included - not so we looked over the railway line and breakfast was extra. The tea and coffee supplied in the room was undrinkable and the milk at breakfast was on the turn. I can say the room was very clean and the bed comfortable and had... More

This hotel / guest house is positioned perfectly, as the name suggests it is right on the waters edge ( not just a marketing ploy)! The harbour and town is just a 20/30 min stroll along the sea front. The hotel is tidy, clean and for a building of this age well maintained. My room commanded a lovely sea view... More

This hotel is very friendly. The staff were always helpful when we required a supply of certain items for the rooms. Breakfast on the Sat/Sun was fabolous, also there was a good supply of cearals and orange juice. The full english breakfast was well presented and excellent.

This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The girl on reception barely greeted us, and was interested only in securing the payment on arrival. We had to ask timings for breakfast, and had to look for the residents' lounge and dining room. We stayed as a family in two ground floor twin rooms. There was no central... More

I disagree with all of the below negative comments. I stayed there one night with my significant other and it was exactly what we paid for. There was a very lovely girl on reception upon arrival who let us check in early. The room was tidy, clean and came with all of the little bits you hope for (Coffee, tea,... More

Stayed here for 1 night on business. It's out of season so there isn't much going on in the area at night as you'd expect. The previous reviewers' statements about the owner who hasn't bothered to iron his shirt are true. The reception area has a bit of a doggy whiff about it, but overall the presentation is clean and...
