My partner and I stayed here on a 2 night voucher deal in June. Our room was very small, possibly half of a larger room? The twin beds were comfy but no room to manoeuvre at all. Apart from the beds the only other pieces of furniture were a wardrobe and dining room type chair. The bathroom was also tiny and great care had to be taken not to bash the sink with the shower door when going in and out. Being at the front of the hotel the room was also very noisy with constant traffic using the busy road. We were lucky with the weather in June, but could not open the window due to the noise and had to rely on the tiny window in the bathroom. We did try the pool, but it was freezing, I'm sure it would have warmed up through July with the very hot weather. Breakfast has to be ordered the night before but was ok. We have stayed in several B & B's and hotels in Torquay, Babbecombe and Paignton over the years as it is one of our favourite areas, but I don't think we will return to this one.
