This once proud hotel is but a shadow of it's former glory days. The "lets have your money now" arrival speech from the unfriendly evening porter spoke volumes and rang an alarm-bell. Although in fairness, the room had a fresh coat of paint, was reasonably clean, with towels and tea/coffee makings supplied. However, my fears about the type of clientèle they were used to accommodating was realised later that night on our return from the Princess Theatre. During the so called 'quiet hours' a small number of young, immature drunken guests returned from their soiree at the local night clubs, intent on waking up the entire hotel with very loud abusive shouting, whilst falling up the stairs, collapsing on the landings and corridors, banging on the wrong doors whilst rattling the doorhandles. All very amusing to them of course, but disconcerting to say the least to anyone of a nervous disposition. However, a first class breakfast served by friendly, helpful staff, made some amends for the disturbed sleep. After all that, this establishment is situated slap-bang on the seafront, with a spectacular uninterrupted sea view all within easy walking distance of Torre Abbey, the Railway Station, the Princess Theatre and Harbour area also Cockington village and the Manor grounds and with prices at half that charged by neighbouring establishments, it was value for money. Just wish I had taken some ear-plugs! And yes, we thoroughly enjoyed the theatre show (the Rod Stewart musical 'Tonight's the Night").
