I booked here at the last minute for a two night stay while my partner went hiking/camping locally.
I'm normally the type of girl who would prefer a bland white hotel, (I've worked for years in chain hotels and like the security that they offer when travelling alone) but I was very impressed with this hotel.
Ok so it is dated inside but it is very clean throughout and the staff are all wonderful. The owner/manager was always available and genuinely intersted in talking about what attractions I'd seen or visited and knows the area well enough to provide good advice. The map that I was given of reaching the harbour was very useful!
My bed was comfy (I had a twin room) and fully ensuite (just a shower, no space for a bath). I was sooooooo impressed by how quiet it was, although the windows aren't double glazed, there was no traffic noise and I barely heard the other guests. I was above the kitchen and could hear breakfast being prepared/cleared but it wan't early and I could probably have drowned out the noise if I'd fully shut the window.
Breakfast was quick, fresh and not too greasy. What more can you ask for?
The bar had a reasonably good range at a reasonable price and all the guests were friendly in the bar.
The crowning glory however, is certainly the location, a 10 minute walk from the stunning Torquay harbour and beaches. (I walk slow and still found it a comfortable 10 minutes down to the harbour) I didn't attempt walking back to the hotel as it is all uphill on the way back but a bus runs once an hour during the day and a taxi is only £3.50 or so coming back so well worth leaving the car in the car park.
I would most definately recommend it, even to a slightly squeamish single traveller like myself!
