A warm welcome and great fun! I walked in to a 1960's theme poster in the reception which being as myself or my husband weren't even a twinkle then I have to admit I was a little unsure- but it seriously added to the fun of the week!
The hotel is mainly a coaching hotel. I would imagine that it's popular for families during peak season and school holidays but being as we booked a random week in may average age was around 60! And we couldn't have had a better time if the place had been filled with late 20yr olds!! We had great fun with everyone taking part in the games and party nights and met some really great people!!
The hotel itself is clean, the rooms are a good size comfortable and for what we paid for the holiday we expected a lot less!! The food is great we only did b&b but stayed for dinner one evening. The food was lovely and for the first time a hotel has finally gotten poached eggs right!! The location is so close to the beach and town it takes a max 10 mins down a private path. The hotel garden is lovely and a great place to sit and chill out - weather permitting!!!!
Entertianment with Brian and Pete was great fun so much so my 29yr old husband has been and bought large playing cards and a bingo machine which he loves!! Great acts relevant to the era they promote like I say this time 60's but they do 40's, cruise week and there are some "normal" weeks if themes aren't you thing - although I am not sure anything can be called normal with Brian being your ents manager!!
Over all we feel this is one of the best holidays we have ever had!! When I consider some of the places we have traveled to its amazing that we would be leaving Torquay and feeling sure we will be back before the end of the year to the Howden Court!!
If your after something fun, relaxing and friendly this is definitely the place for you. Either on the coach trip or in your own car well worth the trip.
I think the quote over the doorbell best sums it up "arrive as strangers .... Leave as friends"
