My husband and I booked a last minute short stay at the hotel and couldn't have wished for anything better. The staff were fantastic, they were so attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The room was brilliant and even included a sky box- something I think more hotels should be doing! We had booked the 'gourmet package' so a...

Slightly off the beaten track - probably not a place you'd find if you were out for a stroll. A family run hotel with fantastic views, interesting history, delicious food that was well presented by smart efficient staff. We had the table d'hote menu at £21 for 2 courses or £27 for 3. Approximately 5 things to choose from at...

We popped into Orestone Manor this morning for coffee, just a short journey from where we live on the other side of Torbay. It was a blustery morning, but the lovely terrace offered sufficient shelter for us to be outside, with its lovely view down the valley gardens to the sea. We ordered coffee and scones. We were offered a...
