Just had a 5day break with Shearings by coach. I think the coach was probably one of the oldest in their fleet and was uncomfortable , but the driver,Vance, was fine and quite informative about the area, The hotel was typical Shearings, clean and tidy but rather tired and needs some money spending on it. The restaurant was fine and... More

The only problem I found was the bathroom was no bigger than a postage stamp and anyone of any size would not fit in it. The portions of food have... More

We have just spent 3 nights at the hotel for a Christmas get together. On arriving we noticed how badly the outside of the hotel looked, it definitely needs a coat of paint. The downstairs was decorated really nicely for Christmas. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant served fairly good food at breakfast... More

Warm and comfortable. Food good choice and delicious. Staff friendly, efficient and professional. Would recommend a stay here. Sea view although extra cost was worth it, but quite bijou. Even the weather was pleasant for Movember.

Had a weekend stay here recently with Shearings. The Hotel is beautifully situated overlooking Torbay. The staff was very welcoming and extremely helpful and friendly. My room was clean, the bed linen and towels spotless. Meals were of a good quality, and plenty of it! I would most certainly return there for a longer break in the future.
