Apart from a friendly owner who had our room prepared with a travel cot, the room itself was more like a studio apartment. Sofa, armchair, coffee table was good, but not as great...

I had previously reviewed this hotel but my review has mysteriously disappeared? The establishment cannot be classified as a hotel..appears to be a haven for council placements and was a major disapointment. Bathroom shower groutng was black with mildew...there was no where to sit .,..we checked out after one night of four booked

We booked this hotel, on a room only basis, after a last minute decision to get away for a long weekend and were very pleased with it. The room was lovely, very comfortable and clean - and it had the best shower I've ever used in a hotel room! We would certainly stay again.

We decided to go to Torquay for a few days in August at short notice. The hotel had a nice room available for us. We were with our 14 month old son. We had a travel cot with us but they were available at the hotel. Breakfasts were available, but we didn't try them this time. The hotel is within...

I have just returned home after visiting Torquay and staying at the hotel with my family. There were 3 adults and two children. The owner supplied a high chair and also a travel cot, both were clean and a godsend as we didn't have to bring our own. We stayed for 3 nights and it was just lovely to have...

We visited here at very short notice due to being let down elsewhere and have to say we all walked into luxury! The apartment we are in is absolutely beautiful, very clean and has everything in it we would ever need. The owner is very helpful and has even recommended us days out and local places to eat. Could not...

Very good service and breakfast (fruit salad quite memorable) and situated near a street of shops with The Kents gastopub. On a frequent bus route into Torquay. Near Ansteys Cove which has a café. We've visited three times and had a pleasant stay each time.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Ansteys Cove Hotel. We had 2 adjoining rooms (14&15), 1 double en-suite & 1 twin en-suite for our 11 & 16 year old. There was a door on the landing outside the rooms that could be closed to make us more self contained. Location good, parking space in hotel car...
