Room for improvement

Our room had a double and a single bed, the single bed was very noisy as was the water, flushing the toilet at night would wake every one up as would run I g the tap to wash your hands. On our second night we had water coming through the ceiling from the room above, but the staff were very good. At breakfast the food and the coffee were just warm, not hot. Very little choice at the bar At breakfast, the food and the

Little Gem

Our third stay here and not disappointed. Good choice at breakfast. We didn't go for the evening meal this time so csnt comment on the night time food. It's a good hike up and down the hill to get into Torquay but Meadfoot beach is only a 2 minute walk away. Lovely relaxing garden with plenty of choice of chairs. Would definitely recommend and we will no doubt be back.

I'd go back tomorrow!

A lovely hotel in a terrific location. The lounge, bar & dining rooms are stylish & classic. Service was very friendly & efficient & food was great. Room was fine but lacked the style of the communal areas.
