the location, hotel and staff wonderful will recommend to friends and family plus two cars parks which is a bonus in torquay
The staff were helpful and friendly, the room is immacculate, the breakfast fantastic (including own filter coffee - even decaf!), bus stop outside front door, walking distance from harbour, car parking all day for free, reasonable rates.
good clean hotel, very good breakfast
Very clean, Modern bathroom fittings. Quality furniture.Super breakfast and friendly staff Only downside is the steps to the Hotel and adjacent Car park and we were on the top floor. Not a problem to us but could be to others.
Hosts were helpful and friendly. Clean, comfortable room and good breakfast. Close to lots of restaurants and bars
We both travel a great deal and have not come across such a high standard of decor in a room, very impressed no
very friendly proprietors, excellent breakfast, nice bar and lounge, tasteful decor, good parking and location superb there is nothing to dislike about this hotel
Nice friendly atmosphere, very pleasant breakfast
excellent staff - very friendly
The hotel was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and youcould have a variety of choices. The owners were very helpful and would do what they could to make your stay as relaxing as possible.
Location of the hotel, helpfulness of most of the staff, and with one exception the quality of the food. The hotel regularly ran out of stock items like mushrooms and fresh bread, and attempted to disguise stale bread by toasting it (toasted prawn sandwich!). The hotel appeared to lack a strong management, and took on committments that inpacted adversely on the overall standard of service provided.
Good location with excellent parking facilities with large room and sea views Disappointed to learn that the hotel was sold while we were there and hope that the new owner maintains the current prices and retains the staff who we cannot praise too highly. The television - it was hopeless - kept freezing on us - even the staff who were most helpful and tried to assist, could not get it put right
Excellent position and despite being on main road, not too noisy. Staff very helpful. Lots of stairs, bathroom needs attention.
The staff were a credit to the hotel. Very friendly & helpful. It was a little shabby in places, including our room, which was so packed with furniture, it made it even smaller.
Very friendly staff, good entertainment only the stairs!
pleasant staff location & room size 1,Rooms are dated need modernizing . 2, Hotel general state of repair, needs addressing , wonderful hallways & stairwells decoration needs renovation plaster on ceilings missing covered by plastic sheets.Outside repainted.3, Some facilities not available outdoor pool in poor state of repair would be a lovely feature if Maintained.Gym not what expected
Superb value for money!!!! Reception, restaurant manager and bar staff were very friendly and welcoming - Breakfast Monday morning was lovely and very fresh. Overall cleanliness of hotel was good. Lovely clean crisp linen! However we missed the Restaurant Manager on Tuesday morning for breakfast. The appently unsupervised waitresses were not so friendly and the service was poor. After seating us and directing us the the rather stale and crusty looking breakfast buffet they disappeared (together) for a fag break. We then had to wait 20 minutes for them to return for us to be able to eat as there were no plates anywhere to be found!! Please get rid of that horrible breakfast buffet. It was so much nicer when our breakfast we made to order (as on Monday). The hotel is in need of modernisation, but nothing I would really complain about as it offered such great value for money. The tiles in the swimming pool were dirty however.
location was good. breakfast was excellent. noise from traffic and heating.
rubbish nothing worked holes in roof buckets everywhere ... no tele working loads of stuff broken no entertainment
the bedding was clean hotel is grubby and in need of refurbishment
My wife didn't complain about anything so it must have been good as she doesn't like Hotels or B&B normally . The owners were very good
Nice clean and friendly hotel Room a little bit small
Cheap and cheerful. Room small but comfy. Stayed only one night - would probably find it too small to stay a whole week. Need to be fairly fit to climb the hill back from the town. Parking very tight. Overall would recomend for one or two nights especially at that price!
A lovely hotel within walking distance of Torquay. Welcoming staff who are very friendly. Last bit of walk to hotel is a bit steep.
Within 20 mins of booking on website I was called by hotel with confirmation. staff friendly & attentive. good location close to town & marina 8 min walk None
Close to main area and shops only a short walk away
Excellent service and breakfast. Very clean and tidy. Great location near all restaurant,bar and harbour.
Every other hotel that we have stayed in replenished the tea, coffee and milk, this was not done in the whole 2 days,
Hotel was very comfortable , breakfast was excellent and staff were very friendly. The owners helped us out when we were in a fix - they have hearts of gold. The location was great for getting out and about in Torquay.
food good The pictures were very deceiving, room was not as in advert, much smaller.
How friendly the owners were, made you feel very welcome. Great breakfast! Very central to town.
The breakfast was very good, The bathroom was tiny, with a basic shower and the water pressure was very poor too. however this did not impact on our 2 day stay at all.
nice friendly hosts, excellent room, excellent breakfast the car park was a little difficult to get into and out of
friendly people who run it steep zigzag drive upto car park
the hosts were nice location good food was good hotel parking
Central location.very easy walk to town.good breakfast. We arrived to be told we had not been booked a room there,even though I had a reference no from activehotels.when I got home I queried it and was told the hotel had received my booking and they had also received a fax to confirm my booking.we were disappointed but took the only double room left,which I have to say was not the best.the window had been propped open with a piece of wood,the ceiling in the bathroom was covered in dust/cobwebs.it was dingy and outdated.we took the room with a view that we only needed to stay a night!the car park was very difficult to negotiate.whilst we were there a chap managed to ground his car on the hlly car park,he ended up parking outside and the following morning received a parking ticket.
Friendly close to harbour and restaurants
it was very relaxed very welcoming and right next to everything.
The car park is not for the faint hearted. Unable to shower as a hose over the bath and no shield to enable a shower
Friendly atmosphere, felt welcome; very helpful owner and his wife; off street parking, though may be difficult in busy periods; lovely room though not the one I thought I had booked with booking.com as the picture and room did not seem the same However I would happily have this particular room again; most important the hotel was free from annoying noises during the night. Superb TV Hot and cold water very slow
Very warm welcome. Nice clean room which lovely white fluffy towels and an excellent array of toietries
Made to feel very welcome with complimentary drinks on arrival. Friendly staff, nothing too much trouble.
Very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Room spot on. Breakfast fresh, hot and plentiful.

location, price, breakfast
The owners were very friendly. the room was cosey. breakast was nice as well. lacation was only a shart walk to the beach. Parking was a problem. had to pay for parking at hotel accross the road.
Owners very friendly and guesthouse spotless. Lovely breakfast.
The owners were pleasant and very helpfull. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms kept clean and tidy. Access to all local amenities was superb.
A very warm welcome from Stuart and Karen who were always on hand to assist. We were given full details of what to do in the area and directed to good coffee shops and restaurants. Stuart and Karen run a very nice property, with attention to detail. A freshly cooked breakfast, fresh fruit salad etc were the highlight of the start of the day.
Owners very knowledgeable and friendly,superb breakfast,comfy beds
Lovely welcome with a nice cuppa tea & cake.The decor to the room was unusual but pleasant.Relaxing atmosphere. none
really helpful and friendly
We had booked the Penthouse Suite and were amazed by it when we got there. We had the whole floor to ourselves just like a little flat of our own with a separate lounge, bathroom and bedroom and there was even a second bedroom which we didnt need so it would be ideal for a little family too. The staff were absolute brilliant, the hotel was tastefully furnished and the food in the morning was superb!! The best hotel we have ever stayed in in a long time and would definitely recommend and reserve again without hesitation
The hotel is in a walking distance to the town centre and the harbour. The rooms are very clean and pleasantly decorated. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We will certainly go back to this hotel again in the future.
Friendliness and tourism advice from proprietors. The stunning garden. Very nice breakfasts.
The proprietors - Paul & Linda were extremely friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the gardens were beautiful and the bed was so cumfy!
The location is in a quiet part of town but only 5 min walk to the main Torquay area. The hotel is just right for a great relaxing break. Paul (the manager ) is a great guy and the full english breakfast is superb. Sitting out on the veranda at night with a drink was a great way to finish off the evening. Please be aware the hotel is licenced but do not sell alcholol, the format is take your own and put it in the fridge behind the bar with a label on it (worked fine when we there). would reccommend this hotel to anyone.
Delightful comfortable hotel where the hosts, Linda and Paul, go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. We'll be back.
Was close to town and staff were helpful in recomending local facilities.
Everything about the hotel was excellent. Paul and Linda were very attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. Even the "quirky" bar arrangements ran smoothly and made the stay even more memorable. What breakfasts!
stayed at three hotels in torquay this was the best .and on price the cheapest. less noise in the kitchen dont worry I will not be late for breakfast
Great stay at Cary Court Guesthouse. Super rooms & a very novel "bring your own bar "system . The owners provide a conservatory type room with loads of plants & wicker furniture, fridge ,lemons,ice machine glasses etc...,all you have to do is provide your own drink & no charge from the management. What a bargain..!! Great location ,5 minute walk down to the harbour & loads of restaurants & a 10 minute walk back up a steep hill but away from the noise of the harbour side hostelries. .Sitting around the pool in the garden is so peaceful , you could be on a desert island. Great value for money compared with other places we've stayed. Will definately be going back...!!!
My partner and I found the proprioters knowledgable with regards to places of interest within the local area. We also found them extremely attentative to our needs. The up keep of the rooms are of good standard and towels changed on a daily basis. The location of the hotel provided a relaxing environment with good transportation links into town. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the near future. Thanks Paul and Linda!!
the staff in the bistro bar were really friendly and great fun to converse with. The pool area was great' and food fab!
reception staff were very friendly and helpful. breakfast staff were very slow, rooms were very outdated and expensive for what you get. our waiter was quite rude.
Ideal town location, close to seafront. Corridors narrow in hotel.
Great stay, welcoming staff, great value food that tastes fab. The best entertainment package available. Fantastic holdiay at reasonable prices. There wasnt anything that we didnt like the staff ensure that your stay is lovely and you always leave wanting to go back.
Basic but very friendly. Needs updating, but cost would be huge as it's a big place. Spa all working well. Really nice aztek pool. Breakfast not great. Thanks Breakfast
Hotel facilities were excellent and food was also very good Room was apaaling very very small bathroom tiny with sink in the bedroom, no room to even walk down one side of the bed and not enough draws to put clothes away for a 6 day break, tv was so old with no remote.....in my opinion this room was a single room...
