Stayed here for 2 nights, room was clean and adequate for what we required, I've seen reviews about the staff not being very nice, the young girl on reception was very helpful and pleasant as was the man doing breakfasts. The hotel is very dated and could do with some tlc but for what we paid it was excellent. Close... More

Stayed here for only one night but the overall experience was lovely. On arrival the young girl was very pleasant and helpful. We enquired about a specific restaurant and she gave us directions but also told us it was a long walk so ordered us a taxi. The room was compact but had everything we needed and the view over...

My wife and I have visited this hotel several times over the last 12 months and on each occasion we have been more than happy with our choice of accommodation. I really do not understand what people expect for the money they pay. The hotel is superbly placed for Torquay and the many eateries and shops on offer in the... More

First of all I don't agree with the bad reviews this place has had! Me and my Husband stayed here for few nights and didn't have any problems with the place at all. The staff are friendly and efficient especially the man on reception who also looked after us at breakfast (which was delicious by the way!) Great location great... More

The receptionist was young but very helpful, she upgraded our room to one with a sea view (if you stood at the side of the window!). The hotel has been extended, more than once and can be a bit of a maze to find your room.The room was basic, clean and with requisite ensuite.The bed was very comfy which was... More

just returned from this place, The bloke working on the main reception, was the most unfriendly, unwelcoming , we have ever experienced, having stayed at a lot of B&B around the country. He marched us up to our room, walked into the room ahead of us, even before I had set foot into the room, he asked if " I... More

Stayed here for one night after a friend's wedding because of the convenient location. Very surprised not to find Basil Fawlty wandering the corridors. After lugging everything up the stairs and cracking a window to get rid of the retirement home smell, it was back out to the seafront to find a pub. We came back just after midnight to... More

Not particularly welcoming or friendly. Only conversation was Hear is your room key and How would you like to pay. No interest on leaving about how I enjoyed my... More
