I recently stayed at Hotel Hudson based in Torquay it was my anniversary. I have been coming to this hotel for many years and always stay in the same room and on this occassion I was so disappointed. The owner is the same but the other person who did the housekeeping has now left and you can really notice the difference! The standard of the hotel has gone down including the room , there were stains on the ceiling and wall, an iron burn mark on the floor, the shower cubicle grouting was mouldy, tiles in the bathroom were cracked and the toilet was not clean please see attached photos. This is rated as 4* accomodation, hardly! It used to have that pristine feel about it, sadly it doesnt feel that way anymore, dont get me wrong its probably a lot better than other hotels around the same area and it is of a modern design which is nice.
One further gripe, the breakfast situation. The breakfast is plentiful and varied but the owner Brian is running around trying to serve so many people at one time, that when you request items, he either forgets or brings you what you didnt want or you have to wait ages. Why not have more staff on weekends?
Location is excellent, free to park your car and you can walk into town very near to shops and restaurants, plenty of choice. This hotel is not suitable for disabled people, very steep steps.
