Dirty tired stair carpet, filthy grime encrusted bannisters, we were shown to room 1 initially and it was horrible,cracked wash basin grim and... More

We had room 7; it has a wonderful view of Torbay, that's the plus side. My mother would have said the place needed a good bottoming (cleaning), the stair rails and banisters were sticky to touch; carpets were frayed at the edges. We couldn't close the cupboard, I mean bathroom door because the threshold strip was bent and stopped the... More

I have been returning to this hotel for many years and have seen a few changes in owners. It has never lost it's personal touch and that's down to all the staff who go out of their way to make your stay relaxing. To clear up a few issues mentioned in other reviews, yes, the hotel is situated by the... More

Stayed here for one night as two couples. We had room 9 overlooking beach!! GREAT VIEWS! The room needs updating desperately. Pillows very flat, tiny tv in the corner (maybe thats why the binoculars were hanging by the bed??), they need to check cleanliness of rooms and check all facilities work as the shower barely let out any water! Also,... More

This hotel is a traditional seaside hotel which has amazing sea views from some bedrooms, the restaurant and bar. The staff are very friendly, jovial and helpful. We booked two single rooms and ended up with double/twin beds which resulted in a comfortable space. Unfortunately, I can not say the same for my bed which was unbelievably noisy and uncomfortable!... More
