First the good bits, looks nice from outside, its clean, the beds were comfy, the food was nice and cooked perfect, evening meals in particular were excellent, the staff were nice, the owner nick is a nice person and does seem to be trying very hard to please, and babbacombe is a very nice place.
Now the bad bits, the hotel interior is very dated (but clean), the rooms are very dated (but clean), the bedroom furniture is old (falling to bits in places), the coffee in the rooms is dreadful (had to buy some from tesco) the breakfast portions are small and the coffee poor (but tea is ok), the bar prices are expensive (but so is the whole of babbacombe).
Could I recommend the hotel, well there is the dilemma, I would normally say no, but nick the owner does seem to be trying, and it was clean, and ok the meal portions were small but the quality was excellent, so_ _ _ I find myself saying, give it a try and see what you think, it does take you back as one of the other reviews says.
