We stayed here for 3 nights on an inclusive deal which was worth every penny. The hotel is in a nice part of Babbacombe (outskirts of Torquay)..The area has larger hotels and homes..
no cheap and nasty b & b's here we think.
The hotel rooms were adequate and clean and we had no complaints really. Had tea and coffee replenished every day. Bathroom was ok, shower not wonderful but ok.(Though we did have a problem with hot water one day).
The dining room was well done out with a modern colour scheme and looked nice. The food and the service were all reasonably good too, food nothing fancy but all edible. The staff were very efficient and looked after everyone quickly enough.
The bar and entertainment area was also modern decor, large screen TV etc but got busy with people as showtime got nearer and although there were plenty of seats, some could not see the acts. Bingo was played every night and a small quiz to keep us entertained and then a singer of some sort. We saw a Neil Diamond tribute act whilst we were there..he wasn't on long but he was quite good. ...other singers were only mediocre at best.
There is a little main street in Babbacombe with a few shops but not many. Along the walkway across the sea cliff top there are a few eateries/bars (part of hotels) so enough to keep you occupied for the few days we were there.The area felt quite select and not run down at all. A quaint little Devon village really.
We enjoyed our stay on the whole..met some nice people travelling down on the coach too, so all in all worth every penny for our nice short break.
