Everyone was friendly and helpful, with requests dealt with quickly and easily. Excellent food, especially the carvery, other pubs and restaurants a short walk away but I recommend eating in. Great location, we had lovely walks and Torquay not far at all.

Looked a bit dated on the way in. But just goes to show that you should never judge a book and all that! Good meals, well cooked, good value on the Friday offer!! Big place so a table of 7 wasn't a problem!

Good sized room, clean and tidy, turned over very professionally, decent sized bathroom, excellent location, expected ameneties, and friendly staff but slightly expensive food offering. Perhaps on par with upmarket hotels but a budget option would be appreciated.

Very pleasant stay. Couple of things let it down. Bacon was under cooked and cold at breakfast. There was a leak in our bathroom overnight. Room 6. When I mentioned it, I was told they already knew. "People must be using the water wrong" Make of that what you will......fix it, surely. The room has great views by the way....
