“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We were greeted warmly at this period hotel perched a small hill in Torquay. We were a little surprised to find that the people we had arranged our stay with had sold the hotel, but I can't imagine it being in better hands. We found the new owners extremely welcoming on arrival and that continued throughout our stay. The room was clean and tidy, but in need of an update (something I know they are working on). The breakfast was pretty good, with an extra sausage or two thrown in for the dog.

The hotel itself is perhaps 10 minutes walk from the harbour, with some pubs and restaurants much closer. They didn't allow pets, but from the outside they did look quite inviting.

In summary, I think we can say this is a good value and honestly run establishment, and probably one of the best dog friendly hotels we have stayed in so far. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the Torbay area.

Thank you for such a positive review particularly since we had only been in occupation for a couple of weeks when you stayed. Apologies for the delayed response to your posting but as you know we've been repairing and renovating. The room you stayed in now has a brand new fully tiled shower room and this room along with those either side of it have new carpets as well. Best of all - The conservatory repairs are finally complete so there's another quiet corner to relax in. We hope you will choose to come and se us again.
