stayed here on Saturday night for 1 night. we had a family room which was very spacious and clean. there's a busy bar downstairs which offers food and a great selection of drinks. continental breakfast is free but you can upgrade to a full English which we did.

This was my first visit to Torquay and I couldn't of chosen a better hotel. From arrival, the welcome was friendly and efficient. I felt that nothing was too much trouble. I had room 24 on ground level and could not have asked for more, the room was spacious well furnished clean and a good size bathroom. Good supply of tea and coffee in the room. Had the continental breakfast which gave plenty of choice. The bar is really welcoming for all ages and the area outside spacious with fantastic views of the sea. Location is excellent as only few minutes from station and a lovely walk along the harbour takes you into the town centre. Overall, a fantastic stay and I can't wait to go back and a longer stay next time.

Booked for 2 nights for work, only able to stay for 1 due to the really poor room that I had.
Arrived after 8pm and unable to park at the hotel, luckily there is a big public car park next door. Then I had to negotiate the drunken revellers to get to the reception which is not manned. This was a bit disconcerting for a female travelling alone.
The room I was given was terrible, it overlooked a brick wall and very noisy road, so I had to choose between being extremely hot with the window closed to suffering lots of noise with it open. There was no chair in the room so sitting on the bed was the only option. The door didn't close completely which put a strain on the latch lock which had clearly been repaired a number of times, again did not feel completely safe with me being on my own. I could go on and on about the room but terrible sums it up.
Trying to find a positive - the location is good for the sea front, you can walk to that quite easily. But that would be it. Never again says it all for me.

Room Tip: Room 18 is awful, overlooks the road.

I stayed one night in a large room, rather an apartment, with only one window. However, the bed was comfy and the bathroom was nice and clean. I slept as baby. The breakfast was very basic, however, the very nice lady at the bar cooked me a decent omelet for a symbolic charge.

Room Tip: Take upper floor with a sea view, and don't arrive late - the bar will be closed and you may struggle to find dinner

On arrival I had to make my way to the bar area as there was no one manning reception at 3pm. I enquired at the pool and was informed there was a charge to use and could only be used at specific times and the hot tub was no longer in use, "as it's more trouble than what it's worth". I was disappointed as this was one of the facilities I looked for when originally booking and therefore paid a little extra than I usually would.
The room itself was very spacious, however it was overlooked by drinkers in the bar area. So I had to close the curtains when changing, even though it was stifling hot outside Also it took a good 5 minutes to unlock the door, as the key just wouldn't turn.
The bar closed at 11pm and I was hoping to get a decent night sleep, however this was not the case, as the majority of people returned back to their rooms from 1am onwards right through to 4am.
So I had constant taxis pulling up outside my room, sounding the horns. In addition the doors to rooms are not soft closing, so again was woken by constant banging of doors. Then to top it off the room above me had creaky floorboards which I found out at 3am!
Furthermore the walls must be paper thin as all I could hear was the guest in the next room snoring. At 4am I gave up on any sleep at all and decided to pack my bag and leave and miss the "continental breakfast".
The only positive comment I have are the sea views are amazing and that is literally the only thing.
For information I stayed in Room 9.
Finally I would like to mention that when I made the original booking I requested a quiet room, so therefore would have thought it would be best to put me on the top floor to at least escape the creaky floorboards above.
I would not recommend this hotel for peace, quiet or any stay over 1 night if at all.
It's a shame really as the place has so much potential but personally I think a good B&B offers more value for money.

Room Tip: Creaky floor boards above room 9 - sleep quality zero
