Just returned from a 3-night stay and will be returning before too long. Our experience was excellent from the time of our booking to when we left. Staff friendly and eager to be helpful, and our room was very quiet. Excellent value for money. Thank you especially to Nicky. L&P

This is the fourth Torquay hotel I've tried this week in this price range, and it knocks spots off the others. Set in a quiet-but-somehow-still-central corner of Torquay overlooking Meadfoot Beach, the location is awesome (just look at some of the photos), and the hotel itself is clean, well-maintained and tastefully decorated. The food is also good (some rate it...

Stayed here with my partner Sunday to Monday. We had a standard cosy room that we got through a Buy a Gift voucher. The hotel location is great as it's only a short walk to town. However, the hotel is up a hill so the walk may not be suitable for everyone. The beach is even closer. The hotel was...

Just returned from a Friday to Sunday break. The staff at this hotel are all amazing and are so professional and you are treated with the respect that is fitting in a five star hotel. The chef deserves to be recognised for the excellent meals he prepares. Breakfast is wonderful too with the best jams, butter coffee, cereals etc. None...

We stayed for Christmas and were extremely well looked after. The staff could not do enough for any of the guests and were always friendly, polite and helpful without exception. We are vegetarian and after an initial hiccup were treated to something special from the kitchen every day. The cosy double was clean and tidy and as described, and, we...

The room was described as Cozy Sea View. It was quite small but had everything we needed plus more. The shower room is also quite small but again is fully functional and with excellent quality shower gel and hand wash. The towels are large and very clean. The bed itself is very comfortable and the tea and coffee making supplies...
