Myself and 2 friends stayed in two rooms for 2 nights over a weekend and had most of our expectations exceeded! We can't really comment on the value for money as one of us works for a travel agents and got a special rate. However everything else was great, when we arrived we were checked in by a member of reception who was a bit dull and lifeless but promptly checked us in.
We found the rooms to be very clean, and although the decor was a bit dated, the fixtures and fittings were obviously fairly new and in good condition. The beds whilst maybe in need of being replaced were comfy and gave a good nights sleep.
The restaurant (where we had breakfast both mornings and an evening meal on the saturday which was inclusive) was quiet and there were plenty of staff to accomodate our needs. The breakfasts were good and the evening meal was very nice and we had our own designated table for the two night stay.
The gardens were very pretty and the pool was quite good, its a small size and was very well heated, and is a nice depth of 1m throughout, great for those who aren't the most confident swimmers or who have children with them.
We didn't use either of the bars as we ventured into Torquay to experience the nightlife. Its my guess from seeing the main bar on the way to the pool that it is more popular with the older generation, and being in my young 20s it certainly did seem that not many people of my age were staying here at the time.
Overall I was impressed as my expectations of this hotel were exceeded and I had a throughly enjoyable stay.
