“Visit this lovely hotel and judge for yourself!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Having just returned from The Coppice I have witnessed first hand how upset the owners Jenny and Syd were by a previous, totally inaccurate review .
The lady who said the hotel smelt damp and musty either has a malicious streak or stayed at a different hotel!
My husband and I and two friends have stayed there 3 times a year for the last six years and not once in all the times we have entered the hotel have we smelt anything offensive or damp.
When someone works hard from dawn till dusk seven days a week and puts their heart in to ensuring that everything is perfect for their guests it is soul destroying for their business to be damaged by offensive, untrue comments!
If people do have a genuine problem why do they not mention it politely whilst they are there and give the management a chance to rectify it.

This hotel is spotless, the food is excellent and the owners are two of the nicest people you would wish to meet. Go along and judge for yourself.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 week during early July. It was our first visit, but WILL NOT be our last. On our arrival, we were greeted with a warm friendly smile by Jenny, the co owner, who explained about meal times, both swimming pools and the other amenities. All the staff were really friendly, and could not do enough to help you have a pleasant and enjoyable stay. The food is wholesome, well cooked with plenty of choice. A lot of coach parties use the hotel, but this is no way to its detriment. The hotel is exceptionally clean, and the grounds are tidy an well kept. Our on suite bedroom was a reasonable size, and had tea and coffee making facilities and television. It was situated at the side of the hotel overlooking the main road, and did suffer from a little road noise. Good entertainment is offered each night, and bar prices are reasonable. The hotel is situated approx. 1 mile outside Torquay, on Babbacombe Road. Bus stops are within a couple of minutes walk. In summary a Good, Clean, Friendly hotel offering Good accommodation, good food and facilities at a reasonable price. We will most certainly return.

We were greeted by Jenny the co owner. Her customer care was awesome as was her staff in the restaurant. The food was faultless always serve piping hot and well cooked. The hotel itself was spotless the decor was also spotless. it actually looked as if it had just been decorated, but it had not been. My big thanks to Jenny, Syd and all the staff for a spankingly good weekend. I am a customer care trainer and there is nothing I can could teach them. We will definitely be back and very soon. From Steve Williams Room 16

Room Tip: There was wifi in the lounge and bar area

The moment we walked through the doors there was a damp and musty smell which I thought would not be good for my asthma. Staff were not really friendly until day of leaving when they actually found a smile. we got home to find the damp and musty smell had invaded our suitcases which had been left on the floor in the room and everything had to be washed, some things twice just to ger rid of the smell. We will definitely niot be going there again. I wonder how they were awarded 4 star status.

Room Tip: Don't bother

This lovely private hotel is a great place to stay. The owners take a very active part in the daily running of the hotel. The food is very good with a choice of menu.Staff are very pleasant and helpful.Hotel is a little way out of Torquay but buses are just outside the hotel going to either Babbacome or Torquay.We would stay there again.This was our second visit to the Coppice.
