“friendly but very very dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2010

We arrived at Bristol House and was accompanied to our rooms by the friendly manager. On first looks the rooms seemed very small but bearable. However on further inspections we were disgusted by the state of the 3 beds. In the twin room both beds contained hairs on matress and pillow. The carpet was dirty and there was dead flies in the window. Under the kettle however was a small dead bug. In the double room on the bedsheet was many,many,many small black curly hairs...(I think you know what we mean?) we left the hotel immediately after making up a story to the friendly managers. We then went into Torquay and found a beautiful clean hotel! i hope this helps you!
