Didn't live up to website description

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Dec 2020
Very basic accommodation. Rooms seen better days. Ok value for money. Pool and tennis courts good but didn't get to use them.
Located on busy road, noisy overnight. Not 2 bedroom chalet as advertised but 1 bedroom with QS bed, other beds in lounge room. Ensuite to master implies ensuite plus main bathroom. No, only one bathroom. Some newer furniture, some old furniture. Curtains in lounge/bedroom old and ill fitting. Needs a refurbish and redecorate. Definitely not 4 star, 3 star at best.

    Had a wonderful stay at the View on Grossmans. We arrived later in the evening without a booking. The owners were super eager to accommodate us. The room was spacious and extremely clean, with a GORGEOUS view of the vivid green fields beyond the property. The beds were comfy and the blankets warm (perfect for the approaching winter temperatures!) The owners were incredibly kind to us. I would definitely stay again and will continue to recommend people to stay at this beautiful place!

    Booked the room thru booking.com and I agree with previous reviews, it wasn’t easy to find even with Navman! It’s about a 3 to 5 min drive to restaurants and the main beach. The room is functional and the bed comfy with a good sized bathroom. There was no breakfast facility but I don’t think that was part of my booking anyway. The host was certainly not friendly but accommodating I guess. Not sure if I would stay here again given te other choices we saw closer in town.

    Having booked a room at 'The View on Grossmans' at Torquay through Booking.com, we experienced some difficulty in locating the site even though our GPS device stated that "you have reached your destination" as we drove past slowly. A phone call to the host soon had us checking in but perhaps a more conspicuous sign at the front of the premises would be helpful, especially if arriving at night. Everything else we experienced at this place was good and we thoroughly enjoyed receiving good advice from host Dale, followed by a very pleasant evening. The facilities were generally superior to 'average', particularly the large bathroom, which I covet! The continental breakfast -from the fridge - was generous and enjoyed. The view of the surrounding rural countryside from our upstairs window was also valued. Highly recommended.

    We stopped for one night in our way to the Ocean Road. It was really good to discover this place out of the beaches but next to. Quite and really comfy. The couple who managed were friendly and makes you feel like at home. The appartment was cute, it had a big bathroom and confortable bed. The place offered a swimming pool and tennis court. You can park your car inside on and if you want to walk to the beaches or go to the restaurants you just need 5 minutes driving. Good prices for 100% quality.
    In my opinion, this little place is really recommendable.

    Didn't even make it to the property. However, now after seeing all these reviews I am glad we didn't. Booked with the host 3 months in advance, and received an un-empathetic email 7 days before our New Year's trip that we can no longer stay. Absolutely no signs of remorse or sympathy for the disposition she caused, just tried blaming the website stating that it's their fault that their communication was so bad and that she hadn't seen the email. Absolutely shattered that our plans are ruined, and now we won't be able to go anywhere for New Years because 7 days out, everything is booked out or extremely expensive! If you want a reliable booking, don't book with Dale.
