Hi Jan & Brian. It's marvelous that you thought your week in our four-poster king room was first class and that you found it clean and comfortable. We refurbished the room for the 2016 season with new glamorous chairs, bed dressings and bedding. We aim to provide the same breakfast to our gluten free guests - including the wonderful Torquay...

My deaf partner and I booked a double room for the weekend as we were in town for the British Deaf Association congress. The owners were very friendly and keen to think about how to communicate with deaf guests (there were several staying there for the same event). We are also vegan, and they were brilliant about providing soya milk,...
