Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Ripley, United Kingdom44 contributions9 helpful votes
This was our 3rd visit, but the first under the current owners. Everything was superb. The garden with pool and hot tub is the 'jewel in the crown'. Great room, very clean, comfortable and with all facilities. Excellent quality breakfast. Lovely hosts, very friendly and helpful, and very pleasant bar/lounge area. Private car park, and very handy location, although, it is up a hill. Roll on visit number 4.

We haven’t been back here for a while but it’s still as gorgeous as ever. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Lots of guests we spoke to have come back year after year so something is right! Very warm welcome. Everyone is pleasant and John is always on the go and eager to please. We will be back next year! Thank you 😀

Me and my husband stayed here for four nights at the end of July. After reading the five star reviews on here we were really looking forward to it and we certainly were not disappointed. Someone had written a one star review but straight away we could tell it was fake so ignored it. We arrived at the hotel at 130pm and were greeted by Nicki i who was so friendly and welcoming and even said our room was ready, which, after a four hour drive was lovely to know. Especially as it says check-in not until 3pm. Bonus. Nikki answered all of our questions regarding Torquay and even persevered with looking up the bus time table for us even when we could tell she was busy. The pool area is lovely and the hot tub a lovely bonus when the weather wasn't so kind. John showed us how to use it and also bought drinks out to us. Once we had finished it was thoroughly cleaned for the next guests use. The hotel conservatory which overlooks the pool area was very relaxing at night. It had a lovely ambience with mood lighting and background music. Lovely to relax in with a drink or two after a busy day out and about. John and Nicki were always happy chat to guests and made sure we had everything we needed. John even sent a fan to the room upon request. This was our second stay in Torquay but first at this little gem. We will definitely stay here again when we return in the future. Another one star review has gone on this site and I know that it is definitely fake and that they have never stepped foot through the door so ignore these trolls. Dispite the poor weather we had during our stay this hotel definitely made our break away alot brighter. Many thanks to John Nicki and their team 😊

I have seen a review for this hotel describing it as a gem. I personally would describe it as a diamond. The proprietors and their staff provide a service second to none in this immaculately kept private hotel.
