I have had nightmares about this place ever since I stayed there. Its horrifying. The owner was very rude and actually farted whilst talking to me. I could tell just by looking at him that the room would be filthy. And I was right. It looked like a scene out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. And that includes the owner! Wouldn't... More

Being a fairly well travelled person, I've stayed in many budget hotels and guest houses from Barcelona, Amsterdam, and now Torquay. This really had to be the worst of them all (and surprisingly the most expensive).

It was the quickest shower ever. There was a tv but couldnt get a signal and limited stations 2 watch when there was a signal. Wall... More

The structure was a little bit old, but the room was clean and confortable. The owner is very friendly, gentle and nice. The english breakfast she prepared for us was superb (and obviously fat and heavy as any english breakfast)! the position was good, 10 minute walking from citycenter and seafront. good!
