MY husband and I recently returned from a night stay at The Livermead Cliff Hotel. It was a special occasion so we had booked a " Sea View " Room with shared balcony. The room was so old fashioned and dated it was a laugh, the small window hardly made the sea visable and we would have had to have all curtails closed in the already dark room so as others on the shared balcony could not see in. The furniture was white formica, I am sure that went out in the 70s ! and it was stained and falling apart.
The bedspread was dirty and the unmatched chairs were stained !
The bathroom was even worst, you couldn't sit square on the toilet and the tiles were mouldy and stained. There was on overall smell of damp, and urine !

I asked to be moved and we were shown a lighter family room. Much of the same problems arose in this room, smell, stains, furniture etc, but it was lighter so we changed rooms.

I was led to believe that the evening meal was to be " special ", it was " Special " but for all the wrong reasons. It was attrocious, tasteless and almost cooked within an inch of its life ! After a long episode of poor starter, soup and then only sweetcorn and courgettes as vegetables with our main course we chose to leave the table and take a taxi into town for a meal.

I could go on and on, but I would be here all day, and as for the advertised facilities eg, pool, sauna, squash courts, we were not told that these were in the sister hotels and not ours !

We were deducted our evening meal charge, but no offer of paying for the taxis in to town and no apology from the manager or any other compensation.

I know that this hotel probably caters mainly for the coach trip / over 65's but that is no excuse for poor rooms and food. !!

Saying this, my husband and I have never laughed so much during our stay and was great entertainment value !!!

Room Tip: Having seen 3 rooms they were all tired and smelly

Have just returned from a one night stay, very happy with the service and everyone seemed friendly and helpful.

Ours was a standard room, ground floor, looking onto the carpark. Compact but adequate, bathroom and room were tidy and clean. The let down was the room door, it didn't fit properly, had a gap above and you could hear people talkng clearly outside, and in their rooms. In fact, the door might as well have been left open.

The hotel and gardens had lovely views across to torquay, and it was either a 25 min walk or there were regular buses into torquay from the bus stop opposite the hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure the door fits

I booked five rooms for myself and family for my nephews wedding. The booking process was easy and Claire who took the details was very patient, cheerful and courteous as there were different dates and different size rooms required. When we arrived I hadn't been allocated a seaview but this was soon changed. All five rooms were in a very tired state, and needed updating and decorating. This was particually so for the three single rooms. They were very dark and stuffy. There were some lovely rooms so I would recommend anyone thinking of staying should definitely ask for an upgrade with a seaview......you should not miss out as the view is stunning! I have to say that the staff in the hotel were really great with nothing being too much trouble. They were helpful, polite and cheerful which somehow made up in a little way for our disappointing rooms.

Room Tip: Ask to upgrade and for a seaview.
