Rooms are very comfortable with en-suite, tea & coffee, big beds. Parking is right outside and off the road. Tesco and Co-op just around the corner. Easy to get to harbour area of Torquay by taxi (8 quid) because taxi shop is just around the corner from hotel. We didn't get breakfast but breakfast area looked nice. TV is tiny...

Dear angtheflange - Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are pleased that you found your room comfortable. As you said, you didn't take breakfast with us since you took advantage of our lower online room-only rates.

Lovely stay, Pauline and Tony were welcoming and very helpful. We have stayed for couple of nights. We have booked room only but decided to pay extra for breakfast on the second day and it was no bother for them. We had a very nice time and we'll be coming again.

This is the 3rd year we have visited. It's like home from home. A very warm welcome. Breakfast is out of this world.
