Visited for a couple of days to view the sites of Torbay. Booked the large ground floor family room with bath, a double and 2 single beds. Good location. Lovely breakfast, would highly recommend the omelette. Hotel lacked a bit of atmosphere but served its purpose.

Stayed with parents for four nights and the hotel was great. Rooms were spotlessly clean and modern and the owners Ian and Marie were so helpful and friendly! Yummy breakfasts too! If we ever visit Torquay again we will definitely be staying here! Thanks!

Clean and tidy. Breakfast good. Room and en suite nice, but shame it only had a small double bed. Also there were 2 flights of stairs to room, and a third set of stairs down to dining room. Don't do stairs easily so was a problem. Some nice restaurants nearby though.

We were shown to our room, it was very clean, nice decoration and decent size. It was a quiet location. You could have a choice of breakfast from full English to continental...
