We spent 6 nights bed breakfast and evening meal and were pleasantly surprised as the Hotel is only rated as a 2 Star it was better than some 4 Star hotels! Very clean, comfortable and picturesque. The gardens are beautiful and the area is quiet and peaceful with the beach a few minutes walk away The staff were very friendly and helpful especially Mark and Lauren who looked after us very well at meal times, and Alex on reception who had the misfortune of having to carry our heavy luggage to and from our room! We stayed in a twin room which although comfortable was on the small side, rooms were cleaned very well and fresh towels everyday. The meals were outstanding and the variety excellent, The area is a little steep although I took my 86 yr old Mother in Law who has to use a walking stick and is partially sighted and it didnt deter her. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel and apart from Sunday there is a bus every 30 mins to take you into Torquay Town Centre unless you feel energetic in which case its about a 15 min walk. Just one criticism - it would have been nice to have had Management greet and be more interactive with guests and we do hope their dog Rocky although adorable gets over his habit of weeing on the carpet which he did on a few occasions.
