This was not our original hotel and it was by chance that they had vacancy. After our original one had problems with their system. Anyway Nicola and Dave were fantastic. The food was lovely and the bed and room were very clean. We recommend it to anyone going to Torquary. Cilla & Fidel

Nicola and David are the best hosts you could imagine.
