Before travelling we were concerned regarding the negative reviews however i am pleased to say we had no problems and enjoyed our stay very much. When travelling we have a bit of a checklist i.e. is the hotel clean - this hotel was spotlessly clean. Are the beds comfy - the beds are very comfy and we slept very well. Is there plenty of hot water - there was never a problem with hot water and the shower was very spacious and the bathroom very clean and bright. Are the meals ok - the food was very good with an evening meal selection of 3 starters, 3 mains and sweets. Breakfasts consisted of cereals, fruit juice, grapefruit, yoghurt, full english and toast and jam/marmalade. The dining room had marvelous views across the bay. Are the staff friendly - the staff are friendly and helpful, especially Steve who was our waiter and worked behind the bar he also helped out on reception out of hours - i consider this is good customer service that staff are willing to cover all areas (this does not necessarily mean the hotel is understaffed). The entertainment was quite good and enjoyed by a lot of the clientele particularly on Thursday when they were all dancing. We met some great people and i would not hesitate to go back. Overall the hotel is decorated in a traditional style although some may consider it dated. Our room did suffer from the squeaky floorboards but we did not have a problem with noise from other rooms and once residents were out of the corridors all was quiet. In summary we had a lovely few days in Torquay which didnt break the bank - the weather was great and sitting in the sunshine in the garden was bliss. i would advise anyone wanting 4 star to ensure they book 4 star. We were more than happy with this hotel.
