Come and see the critically acclaimed First World War musical at Torquay’s Princess Theatre this March. Joan Littlewood’s legendary musical has been revived to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War One. This revival is being directed by the multi award-winning Terry Johnson and is an explosion of colour and music, and at times is deeply moving. This musical tribute features some of the greatest songs from the era, such as (but not confined to) ‘It’s a Long Way To Tipperary’, ‘Goodbye…ee’ and ‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’.

Being shown 7-21/03/2015. If you book the Saturday Matinee Performance, there is the opportunity to enhance the experience with a special Q&A session after the show for just £3 extra! Just ask when booking. Tickets £10 – £35, get in touch with the English Riviera Visitor Centre for more information on 0844 8713023.


Re-Opening Monday 6th July 2020

We are delighted to confirm that we will be re-opening the hotel and our restaurant on Monday 6th July. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal customers for their patience and understanding and for all the support you have shown us over the last four months.

Although your next stay with us will be slightly different, it will still be the same calm and peaceful, relaxing and restorative place you have come to know and love. A place where you can not only unwind, but enjoy great food and hospitality.

Be confident and reassured that we are providing an environment which conforms to government guidelines and industry best practices and will be as safe and secure as we can possibly make it. The health and well-being of everyone who visit us, as well as or staff remains our overriding priority

Initially, in order to ensure we can maintain the required social distance, we will only be open to guests booked to stay here in the hotel. It has seemed a long time since we closed our doors back in late March and so it will be a great joy to see our customers returning.
