Very clean, very comfortable. Excellent accommodation, excellent quality food and plenty of it. Very good spa area, small gym. Location on hill but no problem as hotel proves a daily taxi into Torquay and back. Stunning views from outside the hotel. We would be very happy to return here.

Billiard table , spa room, outside gardens, lovely terrace overlooking the bar where we were invited to eat our picnic on arrival and even offered complimentary hot drinks to go with it. The bedrooms were spacious and spotlessly... More

We arrived on 'Christmas day' much to my son's delight as we hadn't realised that the hotel had started their Turkey and Tinsel breaks. I have never been on a T&T break before but if I was going to do this again,... More

Excellent accommodation in a club room with seaview, food in the restaurant is very good and well presented by very good and helpful staff. Our only disappointment was the new Spa facility, which lacked an attendant to demonstrate how to use the facilities
