An excellent hotel almost in the centre of Torquay, only five minutes walk from the harbor, restaurants and shops. Perfect! Rooms were clean, spacious and beds comfortable. Shower/bathroom modernly decorated and spacious. Good plentiful breakfast, and my dietary requirements were taken into account. Friendly owners, Carl and June, made you feel welcomed and a valued guest. Recommended!
