This place in need of a refurbishment....but suited our needs for a two night stay in Torquay. Hotel set on the hillside outside of town in own grounds...bedroom up in the eaves a long walk from reception. Faded elegance best describes this hotel. Must have been fabulous in its heyday.

Each room offered turned out to be already occupied. Insult was added to injury when the hotel attempted to charge more than the agreed charge. No duty management was present which the receptionist even claiming... More

I booked this with my partner, grandparents and 94 year old Great Grandma. On first glance online, it looks pleasant and was being offered at a reasonable price considering it was the start of the summer holidays.
