Room was clean but decor very dated. Nowhere to hang towels in bathroom nor was there anywhere to put your toiletries. Shower over bath very low and plug had been disconnected from the chain so no way of pulling it out of plug hole, nor was the light over the sink working. When we went to have dinner we were...

We stayed here as a choir for two nights 15th 16th may 2015 and our first experience was a very uninviting receptionist who did not even say hello or smile but virtually ignored us.Luckily our room was ready for occupation (other guests were told their room would not be ready until 3pm).We were given our key and sent on our...

Not such a pleasant experience this time. Disappointing experience on this visit to the hotel. Room was extremely dingy and dark and, as can be seen from this photo, there was no view. The room was tiny...more like a cupboard really...in stark contrast the room I had last time. I don't think I'll be returning unfortunately.

I went to this hotel 20+ years ago & I don't think anything has changed haha. But that's ok, the staff where friendly, the breakfast was nice. Great value for money, the rooms where fine, for what we needed. 10 minute walk into Torquay, a few nice bars & restaurants on your way too. Can't wait to go back.

Regardless of the reviews I'd read, what caught my eye about this hotel was the phenomenally low price. It's not often you can find a decent hotel for £25, but this was actually less! The sprawling building doesn't look much from the outside, but was perfectly presentable inside. Friendly reception staff checked me in quickly and efficiently, telling me everything...

on entering we were asked for final payment balance. I suggested we look at the room first as was told by the very surly reception staff - we are full tonight so let's hope the rooms ok. We had no alternative so we paid - it was 120 all together - before viewing. this included two 10.00 tickets to the...
