It would of been useful on arrival, to have been advised of where the restaurant/bar/lounge were, even though the hotel is small. Instead, we had to pay the bill before we had seen our room. Luckily our room was very nice with a great sea view, nice decor and a comfortable bed. At breakfast, the family of the hotel came... More

Best low-priced hotel I have ever stayed in in this area, and a sea view! Good position opposite Livermead beach area of Torquay. Room was smallish but adequate, comfortable bed. Large lounge and bar area for relaxing, free Wifi in bar/lounge. Excellent breakfast for only £5 extra per day. Marvellous sea views from front bedrooms. Parking area can be congested... More

A well located hotel within easy reach of the buzz of Torquay and with sea views. The outdoor pool was closed in mid August. I had a single room which although very small was well equipped. My bed even had a full reclining mechanism. I had only paid £45 per night for the room plus £5 for breakfast which was... More

After reading some of the reviews on here we nearly cancelled our booking, I'm glad we didn't. The hotel is in a great location with fantastic views. So the building is pretty old fashioned with creaky floorboards but it's clean and fully functional. The bathrooms look fairly new with great showers, loads of hot water and towels. In the room...

Let's start with a good point the location if you can get a sea view room I'm sure it would be great. Unfortunately we had the train tracks instead. Once walk around the corner lovely view of torbay especially at night! With regards to the hotel itself it honestly felt like we went in the deloreon back in time to... More

Rubbish Room, Rude staff after changing our booking. Be aware they have the right to change your booking without notice, so that if you order a sea room and have the confirmation. ‘we have the right to change it if we need too’ We were put in a big (family) room downstairs next to an ally and a generator that...

Stayed here for two nights in July, receptionist was pretty clueless because I had booked to stay an additional night and he looked like he didn't really have a clue what was going on- when we asked for an additional key he just looked clueless. There was a problem with the heating so the hotel was absolutely boiling, even more... More

The Waters Edge, as a building has seen better days. Lots of atmosphere and creaky dòors and floor boards. But the location is good enough to allow a little tolerance. Beautiful views from a building which is very close to the sea, and a delightful little garden with seats to make the most of the sights. The staff were very... More
