Firstly I've read the other reviews and all I can say is that we couldn't fault the place. Activities for children in the evenings, kids films, kids disco etc Pools (inside and outside) both OK to use, could just do with a freshen up. Indoor pool could maybe benefit from some fresh lighting as it was quite dark. Rooms were... More

"Box" rooms but were offered got better rooms after complaining. Breakfast wasn't great and the waiter guy was not helpful at all. My daughter and I discovered cash missing from our purses didn't realise this until we had left the hotel, be careful other residents with leaving cash in your room..... Never judge a book by it's cover (or photos... More

This was a pleasant hotel for a few days away in Torquay. It was very clean and the room was large and bed comfortable. We did upgrade to a deluxe room which had a 4 poster bed and the room was very large with plenty of storage space. Furniture a little dated but certainly tidy. Has two pools, indoor and... More

So read some really dodgy reviews but we can't complain. It is a two star (so expect a two star hotel) and needs a refurb, the windows aren't double glazed so can be noisy. The breakfast room needs refurbing, it's scruffy and the breakfast is a let down, even if the food itself is quite nice. HOWEVER.............. The positives are... More

We booked in for one night room only a few days ahead. The fact that there was room available should have rung some bells! There is parking but insufficient for the number of rooms. We ended up parking on the street. The receptionist did suggest we double park in the hotel carpark and leave the keys with reception so they... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. I'm rather partial to the black pudding myself. The French doors in 12 are lovely, rooms 8 and 9 have had new ones fitted as well so if you ever get bored of 12 we have a few choices! Thanks once again and we all hope to see you again soon. More
