We had a room on the ground floor which was spacious with a view over the gardens. The hotel is an amazing building, with a Russian history. The dining room... More

Non existent Wi-Fi, tiny bedroom, no hot water at 5pm after long day on water sailing, noisy (late evening and very early morning), key card for room door worked intermittently, great if you like bingo and you are a pensioner. The owner owns several hotels in Torquay and it appears that these important matters are just an inconvenience.
