Easy parking. On arrival we had a very warm and friendly greeting from proprietor Mark. Our breakfast orders were taken in advance, and Mark explained what Torquay had to offer, with some good tips on where to go for days out and the best eateries to dine in.

Fantastic location and near to beach, Amenities and fantastic pubs on the downs. The view from the downs across the bay at night you can't beat.
