After reading the other two reviews on Oscar's they were nothing like the experience we had. We arrived in Torquay late in the evening. It was after the Bank Holiday weekend so all local hotels and B&Bs we may of chosen were fully booked. A Hotel sent us to Oscar's which is rated a two star Guest House and one of the only places in the area with vacancies... strangely. But our first thought was we had got lucky.
We were not expecting the Ritz and the room was basic which was not a problem. The problem was it just wasn't clean enough to feel relaxed in. The bathroom floor was not swept, used soap, damp stained towels and hairs in the bed. Once in the bed we both started to feel as if we were being bitten all over. We ended up sleeping above the sheets which gave some relief but it was a very cold and uncomfortable night.
Giving some credit to the owner we ended up getting half our money back. I would say our overall impression was Oscar's was just too big for her to manage effectively on her own. I'm just hoping our feed- back will help make things better for future paying guests. But as it stands I would not recommend this place.
