My girlfriend and I stayed for one night at this hotel on the 20/04/2014. We had a welcome email after booking and when we arrived we were greeted by Terri and Bernard who were great with and couldn't help us enough. We were shown up to the junior suite where we would be staying and was given a map of Torquay and a description of the area by Terri. A polite gesture of hers was to ask us which time we would like breakfast between 7 (i think) and 10. They catered for my girlfriends vegetarian needs also. The room was spotless and had a living room with a settee and furniture such as a coffee table and a wardrobe, a plasma tv on the wall and a view of the main road and a partial sea view. The bedroom is at the back of the open plan room and has another plasma tv on the wall with two bedside tables. The bed was extremely comfortable and again extremely clean! The bathroom was just off in a separate room which had a big shower hand basin and toilet. There isn't much room between the toilet and the shower so if you are a big person it may best to opt for a different suite.
The hotel is about a ten minute walk from the town centre, may be best to get a taxi if it is raining. Terri points out which is the easiest route towards the town. There is on site parking which I used which was extremely handy! The car park is a right squeeze but I am sure is fine for any driver when you manoeuvre appropriately.
My girlfriend and I have already said that we will be returning to this hotel some time this summer. You get a great sense that this is Bernard and Terri's pride and joy and it was a privilege to share that with them.
Thank you for a great stay!
