Positive Reviews


Hotel nightclub is a great venue.

The 'Rainbow Club' has a really good vibe when the hotel is full of guests and there's a decent act performing on a show night. The burlesque cabarets in particular do a fabulous job of generating a upbeat party atmosphere.


Indoor pool is a nice touch.

Being able to decamp to a nice, warm indoor pool is a welcome option when you're holidaying in a place where fine weather is never guaranteed (it is the ENGLISH Riviera after all). Whilst the pool here is by no means the largest you'll come across, it's very pleasant and does a fine job of keeping little ones entertained.


Really handy location.

With the beach, waterfront, International Centre and Torre Abbey all within five-minutes' walk, and the town centre and train station little more than a ten-minute stroll way; you're ideally based to see and do pretty much everything in Torquay when staying here.

Negative Reviews


Décor is pretty dated.

Although the hotel's accommodations and interiors are suitably clean and tidy, there's no escaping the fact that this hotel is overdue a refurbishment. If you're a fan of all things 1980s then you'll be in your element here...


Free parking can be problematic.

A lack of spaces and a commitment to pack vehicles in so tight that precious few motorists can actually get their cars out again means the parking here often provides more problems than it solves. You have been warned.


Very limited Wi-Fi.

In fact, there's only one place where you can get online in this hotel and that's in the library lounge. This seems like a bit of of an oversight considering there's 140 rooms here...
