We have been to the Waters Edge on several previous occasions and I know that we will continue to visit it again in the future. Located opposite the famous Corbyn's Head which is literally on the coast and an easy flat walk to the outstanding harbour. The hotel is great value and in some ways I'm reluctant to review it...

Torquay B + B, Watery towers, this has got to be close. Positive, the bedding and linen was clean. Negative, floor boards creaked everywhere, carpets old, tired and worn, dust and cob webs. Asked for a double and got given a 3/4 size and a single in the attic I think !! The grumpy man who served breakfast couldn't even...

I have stayed here all week while working in the area. I normally stay in chain hotels but was booked in here by my work. It is a bit dated, but clean and very helpful staff, the poor guy on reception seems to work all hours but is alway polite and nice when he sees you. The hotel is opposite...

Where do I start.... The outside of the hotel looks tired and needs doing up. Receptionist was friendly and gave us room No.5. The curtains were hanging off the curtain rail, bleach stains on the carpet, very creaky iron bedspread, lumpy quilt. Didn't use the shower as it was dirty. Got woken up around 4am as curtain was not a...

Don't expect peace and quiet because you won't get it - no matter how quiet the others residents are. The hotel has thin walls, thin ceilings - and floor boards that squeak, crackle and generally annoy. The hotel, however, is very cheap, and breakfast even cheaper. What was attractive was the food was wholesome, hot, and served quickly at your...

The location is perfect, lovely sea views and a good price too. At the reception we were greeted by a man that seems to run the place 24/7, he's either at the reception, serving breakfast, or bizarrely watching TV with a cuppa in the evenings. Seems like we live in his house, not a hotel. The floorboards everywhere are shocking,...

This once proud hotel is but a shadow of it's former glory days. The "lets have your money now" arrival speech from the unfriendly evening porter spoke volumes and rang an alarm-bell. Although in fairness, the room had a fresh coat of paint, was reasonably clean, with towels and tea/coffee makings supplied. However, my fears about the type of clientèle...

Located on the seafront in the Livermead area, the Waters Edge has fantastic potential, but is let down by the lack of attention to clients comfort, especially in the public areas. Receeption is gloomy, the bar poorly furnished, dark and unmanned. The restaurant has no character, but the breakfast is quite good. We went out of season immediately after the...
