although the hotel was pretty fair I think Torquay its self could do with a good clean up.

its far to hilly for somebody of my age my legs are still aching I would not return to Torquay.

Dreadful. Work being done and place in a mess everywhere.Our room New, but had faults.

New room, but step near to bed, my wife had bad fall.

Bruised all over, shook her up a lot. Staff not interested. But I made them write it up in accident book. I have photos. Also brand new super bath, No handles at all. very deep and problems getting in and out. Food very or low average, if main courses hadn`t run out half an hour in to service. Building mess out side all over the place. Only room for three cars. Passageways and part dining room full of cardpt rolls and new furniture. You should go inspect this place, all rooms need inspecting, several guests had terrible rooms. Plaster falling off wall`s, damp ceilings, sockets hanging, some with no windows either. To be frank, it should be closed down and then all work carried out properly.

building site

There seems to be a revamp going on and obviously the hotelier still wants to make money, to maybe pay for works as they are letting out rooms witch are very very tired and need sorting our bathroom was not fit for use on our arrival while trying to find way to in the car park.

We had the joy of meeting the local skip rader, he wasn't impressed with the cast off. The staircase carpet get worse the higher your room is being held down with brown tape, however the staff what little staff there are very friendly and work hard I would return but will ask for a refurbished room next time.

Not impressed

Arrived at hotel and reception said there was no booking under my name and code I was given by laterooms.

Luckily there was still a room available. Once entering the room, I found a half drunken cup of tea on the side and another dirty cup. The towels were also wet as if they had just been used. I then reported this to reception and all I got was a simple 'sorry'.
