                    Location..

                    Day rooms are fine...bedrooms needs update...require attention to detail dirty in places...especially rear of kitchens

                  • Family with children
                    10.0

                    The whole package was excellent a 4* hotel, with spa facilities and they welcome children and have a kids club for them this is very unique for a hotel of this class. The staff couldnt be more helpful or make you feel more welcome. We will definitely be returning

                    7.8

                    Its superb location with wonderful views of Torbay. Our "Premium" room was spacious with comfortable beds and a balcony which would have been pleasant to use had the weather been more clement.

                    Its faded elegance is beginning to intrude on the pleasure of holidaying there. Much redecoration and maintenance is required - the balcony and doors being particularly in need.

                    7.8

                    we loved the view and eating breakfast on the terracing outside our room. also the restaurant view was probably the best i've ever stayed in

                    7.0

                    The breakfast room with stunning views of the bay. Walking distance to the town

                    The room is a bit small. You expect a bit more opulence for this style of hotel

                  • Family with children
                    9.6

                    excellent location with excellent room sea views, very helpful staff, fantastic play area for kids. I spent a real relaxing holiday at this luxury hotel

                    may need some more renovation due to noisy floor while walking on it. very much limited variety in breakfast.

                  • Couple
                    9.2

                    very good facilities and Hotel reception was kind enough.The view from the room is absolutely fantastic. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I 've every had in England.

                    rather hard to find the tennis/squash court, maybe need more detail direction for the hotel guests.About the Hotel restaurant,the food are good but some of raurant employees were absolutely made me annoyed and provided unfrofessional services.

                    Not enough staff in resturants. Paying £7 for open air car park

                    The room we had was big and comfortable with a huge picture window overlooking the sea. The service was great and the staff friendly. Breakfast was OK, nothing exceptional but did the job and the same goes for the pool. Best of all were the children's play areas (inside and outside); a lot of thought and effort had gone into these and our two-year-old had lots of fun tiring herself out at the end of the day.

                    The only downside was the £7 per day extra charge for parking which I felt should be complementary at the £92 per night for the room that we paid over Easter. The hotel should wrap the cost into the room charge, so that at least it wouldn't look so petty.

                    The cleaness of the hotel, the staff, the easy access to the shopping, beach and harbour.

                    It was exceptional value for money. Conveniently situated hotel for many trips out to local attractions.

                    Room and bathroom was slightly tired and could do with updating.

                    Very unprofessional service for the price you pay. Glad this was just a stop over on the way to further west.

                    The breakfast was included in the price. The Murphy's irish stout was excellent.

                    The bed was hard and the pillows were inadequate. I think the owners should stay in their rooms for one night and then at a premier Inn - as the beds and pillows at Premier are fantastic. The room had only two cups and two sachets of coffee which was a bit mean, especially since there were three of us. The car park cost an extra 7 pounds per day which I think should have been included.

                    Everything. Location was perfect, as were all the staff. Food was amazing also.

                    The fact that we were unable to use the balcony as it was locked, and the indoor pool was nothing like the picture advertised.

                    Well situated with the feel of a Grand Hotel but with modern facilities.
