My wife and I stayed there for four nights in May 2008 and had very mixed feelings about the place. It's in a great location and relaxing on the terrace overlooking Torbay is a pleasant experience.
The bar and bistro are busy and welcoming but you have to be quick to get a table for dinner as the place fills up within minutes.
Service and food was variable, ranging from good to awful.
Staff were generally very pleasant and helpful but the food was poor on two occasions.
Room service was good and the room was clean. However, the appliances were either old or didn't work. These sort of details can usually be overlooked but we thought they could have done better considering the amount charged.
Having said all this, the hotel has a lot going for it and we wouldn't rule it out for a one-nighter again some time.
How rude of that other reviewer to suggest that people who see this hotel as less than perfect should stay at home. There is nothing wrong with constructive critisism and expecting perfection. After all, we pay for it with perfect money don't we?
