This was the second hotel on our brief trip down to Devon/ Cornwall and unfortunately we had been spoilt by staying at a far superior Best Westen prior to arriving here. The hotel is set in an impressive building, and couldn't be any closer to the waters edge. If you enjoyed a sea view room, or sat out in the garden on a nice day it would be lovely.
Unfortunately we didn't have a sea room and, although the cleanliness of the hotel, and room was good, the room itself was disappointing. For a large room the double bed was small, and the bathroom, was again clean, but sludge green!
On our first evening we went to the bar for some drinks and ordered some bar snacks, always a shame when the onion rings are those nasty Iceland style ones with onion flavoured mush inside and the 'cheese' part of the garlic bread/ chips order was taken a bit too enthusiastically! The 'entertainment' just proved that scenes from channel 4's 'The Hotel' were true representations of these English Riveria seaside hotels and not a joke.
About a 20 minute walk along the coastline to Torquay, which is nice enough.
Wouldn't choose to stay here again, but serves a purpose. less
