The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. Location wise, it is in a quiet street, walking distance to the seafront, or a few minutes drive to the harbour and main...

From arriving Friday night late to Sunday they went the extra mile to make our stay extra special. It worked well as we left Torquay as national champions and I can certainly say the full English made by the ex Chef certainly helped the long days bowling!!!! 10/10 and will defiantly be going back for weekend breaks in the future.....
