The hotel is still undergoing modernising so it’s very difficult to rate it overall but if it continues to upgrade the rooms, furniture etc then I hope its reputation will speak for itself. Extensive and excellent wine list, particularly by the glass and the menu in the restaurant looked fab. Our newly refurbed room (306) was large and very comfortable- some older worn furniture needs replacing to really get the new feel. Fastest free WiFi a real bonus. I do hope the hotel can be fully refurbished and continue its trajectory. For the price it was great value! We will return to eat in the restaurant soon!

We had an excellent dinner, first time to this restaurant in Torquay, very comfortable restaurant and lounge, I had the bistro set menu which was amazing value foe money, with foi gras, duck and chocolate marquise mousse and macaron, my partner had the tortellini and asparagus finished with a rhubarb desert, nice New Zealand Sauvignon blank

After being dreadfully let down by another national chain hotel very close by we were so happy to be able to get 3 double rooms at the last minute (at a better deal than the other hotel)

All rooms were well equipped and very comfortable with beautiful décor. We were luck to have a beautiful sea view

Breakfast was included in the price and was delicious the next morning.

We all had a wonderful stay here with a fantastic nights sleep.

The reception staff were amazing, friendly and extremely helpful. They really made the stay exceptional

I would certainly recommend this hotel to others in the future

Had a great time at an event here last week with friends. Three course meal with a delightful goats cheese starter, tasty main chicken course and creamy dessert. Staff were friendly and helpful and the venue was in a great location by the sea and town. Would definitely go back again
