We stayed here as a choir for two nights 15th 16th may 2015 and our first experience was a very uninviting receptionist who did not even say hello or smile but virtually ignored us.Luckily our room was ready for occupation (other guests were told their room would not be ready until 3pm).We were given our key and sent on our...

Not such a pleasant experience this time. Disappointing experience on this visit to the hotel. Room was extremely dingy and dark and, as can be seen from this photo, there was no view. The room was tiny...more like a cupboard really...in stark contrast the room I had last time. I don't think I'll be returning unfortunately.

I went to this hotel 20+ years ago & I don't think anything has changed haha. But that's ok, the staff where friendly, the breakfast was nice. Great value for money, the rooms where fine, for what we needed. 10 minute walk into Torquay, a few nice bars & restaurants on your way too. Can't wait to go back.

Regardless of the reviews I'd read, what caught my eye about this hotel was the phenomenally low price. It's not often you can find a decent hotel for £25, but this was actually less! The sprawling building doesn't look much from the outside, but was perfectly presentable inside. Friendly reception staff checked me in quickly and efficiently, telling me everything... More

on entering we were asked for final payment balance. I suggested we look at the room first as was told by the very surly reception staff - we are full tonight so let's hope the rooms ok. We had no alternative so we paid - it was 120 all together - before viewing. this included two 10.00 tickets to the... More

If you don't walk so well ask for a room near the entrance. Lots of winding corridors and doorways. Our beds were uncomfortable but room was warm, clean and spacious. Restaurant can be chaotic having a different table each time but we never had to wait. Food is basic selection but excellent quality, tasty, and plentiful. Price was acceptable and... More
