Great hotel. Basic rook and bathroom but didn't pay a fortune. It served us well. Totally amazing view of torquay harbour. Breakfast was tasty. Good value for money. Definitely be going there again. Even just for that view. 😆

The staff were very rude and just did not care, they looked miserable and did not want to interact with you . We where charged £6 for breakfast upon arrival but the...

Pretty friendly staff, comfy fresh sheets and lovely views of the ocean. No hot water which didn't help with the room being cold. Had to bury ourselves in the duvet țo keep warm. And next door tried to drunkenly unlock our door and were quite loud for 2am which isn't the hotels fault but it highlighted the thin walls.

Very helpful owner who i had to get out of bed at 2am to let us in but he did so without question and was happy to do so. Lovely hotel considering the price. Highly recommend this hotel ! Much better than the 4 star hotel (The Grand) down the road from it

The rooms here are very Barry basic. The thing that shocked me the most was the black mound all over the walls and ceiling and together with the ceiling in the bathroom starting to come down it didn't make for a pleasant shower! On the plus the staff were very good :)
