“This is the fourth Torquay hotel I’ve tried this week in this price range, and it knocks spots off the others. Set in a quiet-but-somehow-still-central corner of Torquay overlooking Meadfoot Beach, the location is awesome (just look at some of the photos), and the hotel itself is clean, well-maintained and tastefully decorated. The food is also good (some rate it excellent, but I’ve only tried the brekkie and Sunday lunch so I don’t know about the evening menu) and it has one of the best little hotel bars in the town. There is a sort of warmth about the place. And the staff are all naturals.

All in all, this is one of those rare hotels where one can actually relax and enjoy. I’ll certainly make a return visit next time I’m in town.”
