Maybe the worst hotel in torquay and probably the worst one I've stayed in the UK. Definitely not to be visited again.The twin room was absolutely tiny and we felt cramped including the shower which was so small I kept knocking the control from freezing to "scalding".Throughout our stay we kept bumping into one another and felt very claustrophobic.Getting to sleep at night was impossible even though we did not go to bed very early. The cause of the noise came from the bar directly below our room.They played music & karaoke every night except line dancing night which was held in another room, but on this night a group arrived back from the theatre at 10.30 to drink at the bar and they sang til very late!I had to purchase ear plugs so that I'd be somewhat awake the next day and could escape!
To balance things up food was edible but not to a great standard which was no surprise due to the packaged coach trip.Restaurant staff were very keen & helpful but I believe this was thought of as being above & beyond their basic duty and a reward was expected at the end of the stay.Just because it was cheaper than other hotels doesn't mean it has to be nasty as well in this day and age.
