Firstly, over all we had a nice break at The Norcliffe in Babbacombe, the hotel was clean, but quite dated, and definitely catered for the older person in many ways. Our room was kept clean and a cleaner came round to tidy each morning, and the beds were fine for us. The window and shower was a little temperamental, but apart from that the room was fine. As some of the other reviews have mentioned, the owner is quite OTT, and felt like he did a speech before each meal. However, we do understand that as the hotel caters for the older person, they may not see this as a problem, but for us we would of liked to just eat. Also, at breakfast and dinner, we had allocated seats and had to sit there each morning, and we were also on a table with other couples, now even though this is probably so that the waitresses (who were lovely by the way) know who's ordered what each day, it was quite hard to have a conversation with my other half, and we are not used to there being such a routine when we are away. However, the couples we were with were lovely too. Would also like to mention that we were there on a coach holiday with Travelstyle, and thought the company was really good and well organised, with great customer service and reasonable prices, would definitely go with them again.
