        Very welcoming. Invited us down to his bar in the evening where most of the guests congregated and chatted. Cooked us an evening meal. Drove some of the other guests up to the football ground.

        Room was a bit cramped but fine for an overnight stay in a guest house at guest house rates. .

        Staff were very friendly and rooms very clean and tidy

        Rooms perhaps a little small

        The male owner is very polite and helpful

        We had been waiting for more then twenty mins and not until I asked the hostess if I could place the order then she took notice of us! The infomation provided by Booked.net is incorrect as there is no wifi on the top floor that we stayed so not free wifi in the entire hotel as stated on the website.

        Close to Railway station, clean room, good breakfast.

        Room and bed tiny, not en suite as stated on website, OK for one night stay. Noisy extractors in adjoining rooms and guests banging doors until late!

      • Group of friends

        Breakfast was of a good standard, along with the staff. We were made to feel very welcome.

        The shower room was a bit small.

        The couple running the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and tidy, the breakfast was excellent, altogether a very enjoyable stay.

        A very nice welcome though we arrived after 11 pm at night, with our host who really wanted us to spend a good time in the hotel. The room was perfectly clean and the small bathroom had been recently refurbished.

        The walls of our room were pretty thin which means that you hear your neighbours (and ours was snorring badly which did not help!)

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        As soon as we arrived we felt that we were made very welcome. The Hotel was very homely and Russel and Helen were perfect hosts. The rooms were very comfortable and spotless. We only had the breakfast on our stay but the food was excellent. We are planning to go again in September and would definately tell other people.

        The owners were very friendly and professional. Breakfast was good with a range of choices. WiFi was available and the owner was helpful when we wished to access it.

        The bathroom was very,very small and the room had no blockout curtains.

        I booked two double rooms and a family suite for our stay to vist to attend my grandsons christening. The hotel is in a lovely quiet position within easy reach of Torquay town, there was ample parking, a very pleasant welcome, comfortable rooms with ensuite showers. Breakfast was amazing with fruit juice, cereals, fruit, tea, coffee and a full english breakfast that was cooked feshly to order with ample amounts of toast and tea top ups. Lovely guest house will be back soon when down in Torquay
