We have just returned from a lovely three night stay at the Sherwood Palm Hotel, which is ideally situated in the heart of Torquay. On arrival, the proprietor noticed that my husband was using a walking stick and immediately took his suitcase and carried it to our room, without us needing to ask for assistance. Our room was small but...

It's very important for me to leave a positive review as I really think the hotel's been hard done by here but it's also going to be honest. I was dreading going on our holiday after reading the reviews but I think there are some vindictive people around. The hotel is dated, olde worldy but comfortable and relaxed. The positioning...

From the moment we entered this beautiful hotel we were welcomed by Rana, the joint proprietor with his lovely wife Vena. We were given a choice of 2 rooms as my husband wanted a sea view. Every day Vena would check...
