Lovely hotel, family room, 1 double and 2 singles and still plenty of room! We had 2 windows both with excellent sea view, hotel reception very friendly and accommodating. Wifi £3 for 24 hours. Room was clean. Would definitely stay here again. The biggest negative would be the brewers Fayre restaurant associated with the hotel! Beer garden very untidy litter everywhere, our room looked over the beer garden and the beach and the mess was awful and unwelcoming.
Breakfast was okay warm not hot, mugs and glasses dirty had to look at a few before finding a clean one! Quite disappointed with the restaurant and needs a good clear up to meet the standards of the hotel.

Ideal place for the beach and visiting attractions. Busy in the summer, as would be expected. Have stayed many times out of season and found it very good.
Local bus stops very close ans also the stem train.

Small hotel but very friendly and helpful staff.Rooms were large,air-conditioned and clean.The view from our window was great.There was no lift which may pose a problem for some.The breakfast was great and unlike other P.I.hotels ,cooked our choice for you which made the eggs lovely.The bacon was fantastic-and our waitress was lovely,chatty and funny! Evening meals at the pub was great-good value.Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: family rooms are lovely.Ask for a room overlooking the sea.

Hotel staff were friendly and welcoming, and the hotel itself was nice and quiet. We had a sea view (room 6) with wi-fi as an extra (£10 for a week) which was great for my son.
Comfy beds and couldnt hear outside unless the window was open (of course).
However, although 5 stars for the hotel...I have moved this down to a 4 because of the restaurant.
It didn't seem that clean with "sticky" menu's and tables. Paid for all you can eat cooked breakfast and on the first day the egg wasn't cooked properly and the vegetarian sausages were rock hard and looked and tasted like they had been microwaved.
For the rest of the week my wife and son went for the cold (continental) breakfast which was much better....and I could't be bothered to ask for a refund in the difference between the cooked and cold breakfast (£8.95 compared to £6.95 each).
I tried an omolette the day after - was rubbery and I really don't know how you can cook these incorrectly - but that was somehow managed!
A table nearby complained that the 2nd day running their eggs were cold when they arrived. A few minutes later they came back with the plates so hot they couldn't be touched (obviously the microwave operative inthe kitchen...cannot call him / her a cook.....was on overdrive!).
Obviously they had just reheated via a microwave oven!

A real shame as the waitresses / waiter were really friendly and helpful.
If they either replace or train the kitchen staff to cook properly, then this would be 5 stars.

Room Tip: Getting a sea view made the trip for me! (Room 6) This was on the ground floor....although the upst...

Went with a group of friends to watch our local team play Torquay. The staff were very friendly and the hotel room was superb and spotless. The view of the sea was fantastic. The location right by the beach and the water park would be brilliant for anyone looking for a nice sun/beach holiday weekend. Breakfast was excellent as usual. Car parking at that time of year was free but i believe that in the high season you have to pay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Fantastic location right on a clean and tidy beach with all the facilities you could wish for. Hotel was spotlessly clean and staff helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel. Air conditioning was a particular benefit with the hot weather.
