My daughter and I were attending a family wedding in Torquay and booked the Waters Edge Hotel - room only. We arrived at 4.30 in the afternoon. There was one parking space left, and the reception area looked relatively modern, clean and efficient. Checking in was no problem. I asked for an extra key, only to be told that we...

We booked this hotel as there was a special deal of 3 nights for £85 so really shouldn't complain about anything. Firstly despite having a booking reference the reception could not find it. We had to leave and come back whilst they sorted it out. The room was on the top floor and the lift does not go all the...

I arrived later in evening under a torrential rain. The receptionist was very odd and a bit aloof. I was hungry and when looked from reception into restaurant i was told no food until breakfast and continental breakfast only is extra £4. Upon seeing my room i avoided breakfast. Extremely prison like room, very small and cold and worn. It...

Good location with a great sea view. Walk to Torquay was a little far for my son but for most not a long walk, there is very good public transport. We had a car and appreciated the off street parking. Clean, spacious room with comfortable beds, extra pillows in the wardrobe and also a kettle which was great after our...

Beautiful view. On site parking. Good bus routes for getting to all the coastal areas. On arriving in an unmanned lobby, two hand written signs for reception pointed to a locked door. We had a wander around for a few minutes to try and locate and alert staff to our arrival. We resorted to ringing the hotel from our mobile...

Arrived at 3.30 pm..to a very cold room..when asked about heating was told the heating was on a timer and wouldn't be on until 5.30....so we thought a shower might warm us..wrong..no hot water either. Room only cost £40.. but at least look after your patrons by providing heat and hot water..will definitely NOT be returning.

Hotel booked on price @trivago £33 for the double room. Was small and the walls were clearly plasterboard and little else. Next door shutting their window was noisier an our tv. But it was clean, (apart from unknown splodge on top of the drinks jar), it was warm and the en-suite was fine for a night. The hotel is on...

This room only cost us £35...it does the job, we booked as we were spending a night out in Torquay. If you just need a place to put your head at the end of the evening then this place is fine. However if you were staying for longer you would probably be better off staying elsewhere. Man on the desk...
