We had booked this hotel for a five day Tinsel & Mistletoe holiday. the room décor was looking quite jaded. My bed was awful I put the top quilt, folded into four to sleep on, next day they had put on a topper which was adequate. Food mostly okay, although on Wednesday, due to my Sister not being well we... More

First of all thank you for bringing this to my attention and I am very sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us as much as you had hoped. Of course you are correct that you could have gone in to breakfast any time before 9.30 and that Alex's response was inappropriate. He has been with us for a... More

Well where do i begin? The hotel is shabby and in desperate need of decoration, the room was tiny and smelly, the staff were actually quite nice apart from 1 member who worked behind the bar and spent most of his time drinking behind the bar as well, Torquay has far better hotels than this to stay at for the...

This guest was escorted from the premises by police after becoming drunk and abusive to the bar staff and clearly has an axe to grind. I am always grateful for feedback whether good or bad but I do not feel this is an honest and fair review. More

I was with my husband and we were part of a large group. Reviews weren't too good when we looked but I was pleasantly surprised. Although the building and decor is a bit tired our room was clean and the welcome was friendly. There's a lovely indoor pool and friendly bar with with good entertainment. Well worth the money.

The staff are friendly and helpful, but I was assured it would be quiet. It's not. It's 11.30pm and I have been unable to get to sleep because I can hear the following from my room: someone on a phone in the lounge outside my room, snoring, people laughing at the bar, music, an alarm clock, people moving about in...

Dear Sleepless and Angry, Thank you very much for your review and your detailed description of the noises you can hear.

We have stayed here several times before, finding it average. We went back again simply because Mark Jenkins was filming The Hotel series. The atmosphere Mark created was great and made the holiday. As for the hotel, it's ok and staff were friendly.

38 members of a bowls team had a wonderful time with good entertainment and so well happy we did not have to venture out at any time. Done everything we asked for and certain to go back. We had the 4 poster room for my wife's birthday and really enjoyed it.
