We decided to book a weeks holiday at the Cranborne after reading the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. We were instantly taken care of as we stepped through the door after a 2 and a half hour trip, as we were welcomed with a nice cup of tea. The proprietors, Mandy and Leighton were lovely people who made everyone feel at home. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were very friendly and knowledgeable of the Torbay area. You wouldn't think that they had just taken over the Hotel in April as everything appeared to run like clockwork.
The room was just the right size, with a lovely shower and even a fridge. As the temperatures during our weeks stay was well into the low 80's, this was a welcomed addition. The hotel decor was tasteful and well kept. Breakfasts were a high point and the owners went out of their way to accommodate our every need - even offering to go and get anything we needed as one of us is vegetarian. The menu however already catered for both of us and was delicious.
We really felt at home here and it was nice that Leighton and Mandy would take the time out of their busy schedule to sit down and have a chat about places to go.
We would recommend without hesitation this lovely, well placed hotel. Just a few minutes walk from the seafront and on a hill that is not too steep. We will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Torquay and will recommend The Cranborne to our friends.
Thank you Leighton and Mandy for your hospitality during our stay.
