    The staff was great, there was a private parking. Basic double, basic double room with a large bed. I loved having breakfast here, it was excellent. Super location to a life-sized Victorian shopping street. The beach nearby was sandy and the view was magnificent. Smooth check-in, late check-out.

    Briliant personnel, exceptional food and drinks. Our twin room was good and bright, had marina view. Ideally located for us. Popped in Salt & Pepper for shots before sleep, it was within walking distance of the venue.

    There was a sunny patio with a view of the sea. Plenty of food at full english breakfast. Rooms were really clean in general. Parking on-site was provided.

    Some of the staff were incredibly rude.

    Location was fantastic, staff was extremely helpful. It was next to Beacon Cove. What's more, getting to Torquay Connections on foot takes about 15 mins. Breakfast was good and frequently replenished. The rooms had heating, an iron and a sitting area. There was pool too.
