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.

From the welcoming hosts, to the fantastic breakfast, this beautifully decorated and maintained hotel is now the only ace we will stay in Torbay. Just a short walk to the harbour, the location is great! Elaine and Martyn couldn't do enough for us.

This "quirky" boutique hotel was an amazing find. Not only were the owners, Martin and Elaine, very welcoming but they have also turned their hotel into a remarkable and interesting place to stay. With themed bedrooms and so many "knick nacks" adorning the common areas there was just so much to catch the eye. Whilst not serving evening meals their breakfast was exceptionally good. Definitely somewhere I will be looking to stay at again.

When we go anywhere we like to try and stay in somewhere a bit more unusual and we loved this place. Lots of gorgeous rooms and decor throughout. The hosts were so friendly and happy to chat about the house and pass on local knowledge. Very quiet as not near the hustle and bustle but only a five minute walk to the high street. We booked the Moroccan suite and we were not disappointed ❤️ Fab breakfast the next day too. We would be happy to return and recommend it to everyone ☺️

Martyn and Elaine are fabulous hosts with a wonderfully unique (the hint is in the name!) hotel. We had three rooms, each with their own unique layouts and large comfortable beds. They gave great information and advice for our potential days out and even surprised me with a card and bottle of fizz as it was my birthday week away with the family. Just a wonderful bit of 'icing on the cake'. Thank you Martyn and Elaine for a lovely stay, a lovely surprise and wonderful breakfasts!

A great stay at The Hillcroft. Elaine and Martyn were warm and welcoming hosts. We were offered a complimentary drink on arrival and shown to our room, which was clean and extremely comfortable. The Hillcroft is uniquely decorated, with lots of interesting and quirky features. The breakfast was delicious and the service and attention to detail superb. We will definitely be returning.
