The good points, situated off the main Torquay to Teignmouth road down a quiet country lane set in what could be described as a garden setting with distant views of the sea through the mature trees The garden to the front of the hotel is a delight to stroll around particularly in the spring and summer , a swimming pool is set to one edge of the garden ,( don't get too excited it is somewhat small ) but probably good fun for a quick dip. to the front of the hotel a terrace overlooks the garden including the sea peeps. once again this area is delightful when the weather is good and I can highly recommend this as a venue at any time of the year for morning coffee followed by or having a light lunch. leading from the terrace one enters a casual dining area ideal if the weather drives you indoors then into a lounge bar area. Decoration and maintenance are good, the separate dining room is attractive, menu choice and quality of meals is good. Toilets clean and well serviced. bedrooms are comfortable and nicely furnished. because of the view front facing rooms are well worth considering. ample car parking is to one side of the hotel with a limited disabled bay. The nearest beach is a down hill walk all the way about say fifteen minutes but don't forget the return journey is ALL uphill best idea is to drive down to car park and walk the last short distance. This hotel makes an attractive venue for weddings , birthdays, anniversary celebrations, family get together etc. as I can personally vouch for and one that is well worth considering. Can I recommend it undoubtedly, will I be returning most certainly. but what's this Ooops and the biscuits nonsense , Two guests arrive for morning coffee for two and are served three biscuits yes that's right three biscuits if you query this to be told you can have another portion of yes you've got it another three biscuits, so you either take one and waste two OR eat the extra three meaning you don't stop for lunch as you have had eat to six biscuits. Come on management , penny pinching like this sends the wrong signal particularly as I have a good idea where the biscuits come from and therefore what they cost per each, also they are not the homemade one's you used to do. So get this sorted and strive for the excellent rating from this reviewer.
