Overall the stay was very good - relaxed, relatively quiet, good location. The only let down was breakfast. Great choice however full English did not deliver. Lovely stay for one night. Pubs, Subway, Dominos nearby.

Booked a night whilst on a trip to Torquay. Lovely modern and quite place not too far from the motorway. Arrived slightly before check-in but was thankfully allowed in. Had a beautifully time. Even with the extension work in progress there was sufficient place to park and no issue at all.
