4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Came across this restaurant by chance strolling along Babbacombe Downs on a sunny evening. service was really friendly and helpful and the food was fresh and different (ate marigolds for the first time!). Beautiful views over the bay couldn't of picked a better spot for an evening meal with a view.

Had a lovely late breakfast sat on their terrace in glorious sunshine. One veggie breakfast and an excellent eggs benedict, good coffee too. Will definitely come back next time we are in Babbacombe and try their roof terrace. Good service and a great setting

We booked the whole dining room on a Friday night for a large retirement party, worked closely with the hotel and had a set menu (4 different starters, mains and desserts.). The hotel staff worked very hard to ensure that everybody was well looked after and the food was beautifully cooked. The staff were smiley, polite and very efficient. On... More

We booked a sea view room and were allocated top floor. The room was huge, modern and well appointed. The bed was also very comfortable. A real highlight was the restaurant where we had a delicious dinner and one of the best breakfasts I've ever had, with great service to boot. There are also shops just around the corner for... More

Loved it all. Great sea view from the room, which was exactly as seen on the website. Spacious, with extremely comfy bed. Car parking is probably the only issue but we got lucky in a side street a stones throw away. Very easy to catch a taxi or a bus into Torquay. As others have said it looks as though... More

Very good room, lovely balcony but be prepared for people sitting outside the cafe underneath you. Clean but balcony could do with a sweep. Great to have a fridge in room and lovely coffee and tea. Bed good and the whole room was wonderful. My only gripe is I think it is steep for £170 per night and think the... More

We have just stayed at this hotel and it is the best by far. The rooms are spacious, comfy beds, great bathrooms, fresh and nicely furnished. The other hotels in the area don't look as though they have received any love over the years whereas this hotel does so deserves a great review. We were trying to book somewhere in... More

My husband booked our stay as a surprise birthday present. The hotel was beautifully decorated with a modern edge, everywhere was spotlessly clean.

We booked the hotel with a sea view room some months ago for a treat for my partners fiftieth birthday and for me ending treatment for cancer, a double celebration. We received a polite e mail a week before to explain there had been an error in the booking of that particular room, offering us another room without charge. We... More
