There are good points and some not so good one bad.
The hotel is well situated if you like and evening walk as it is about 1 ½ miles from both Torquay and Paignton, although the Torquay walk is better as it is all along the seafront. There is plenty of parking with easy access to the main road. The staff are friendly and helpful although I did not try the food (don’t usually eat in the hotel where I stay). The room, as well as the hotel, was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was no noticeable road noise despite the window not fully closing.
On the not so good side is the general state of repair of the hotel. The bathroom of room 24 seemed to date back to the 70’s. The bath was discoloured and the trim panel looked bad due to the cut outs for the pipe work but it was spotlessly clean. The window frame appeared to have some rot and the secondary double glazing did not seem to close properly.
The bad point was that they were painting doors without any warning signs. I only got paint on my hand but judging by the marks on one door others were not so lucky.
None of this detracted from my stay and I would stay there again. All-in-all a reasonably priced 3 star hotel that could benefit from a refit.
