        Location was excellent and the friendliness of the staff

      • Couple
        9.6

        We booked the last double room at the Ansteys Lea on the day and were given a better room than expected. Excellent value for money, I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

      • Family with children
        10.0

        Very friendly welcome. Clean and attactive rooms, with good-sized bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast.

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        The owner was very friendly and helpful. We were a group of hens and he was very understanding. Would definately stay here again if i was to revisit Torquay. Approx 10-15min walk to the harbour which is downhill so not so bad. Coming back is best to get a taxi!!

        There was nothing I did not like about this hotel. Only point i would raise is that the swimming pool is no longer there this isnt stated on the Booked.net website.

      • Single
        6.6

        convenient location with reasonable stay, but wouldnt stay again

        shower was limited to luke warm. Owner was barely forthcoming when asked for more coffee etc sachets, had to buy a jar !!!

      • Group of friends
        4.2

        The hotel was two thirds building site on arrival, bar and restraunt closed however he did say he could cook breakfast for us for 5 pounds each, We decided to decline as the dining area had been put next to the bar room and was icy cold. If it had been advertised as being refurbished we would have booked elswhere Very disappointed

      • Single
        3.2

        Mouldy walls. poor access. lumpy bed that was two singles pushed together so you fell down the middle making it hard to sleep. not at all how it is portrayed in the brochure. seems run down.

      • Older travelers
        3.2

        the churches

        i felt this hotel was now value for money and was disappointed. even the 2 stars had been covered over.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Staff were friendly and helpful,

        the room was small and hot for 3 people

      • Group of friends
        5.0

        Basic & convient to town centre.

        Room smelt mouldy & mildew in bathroom and my friend as resperitory issues. Room was tired looking. Plumbing pipes made noises all night.

      • Family with children
        4.6

        Overbearing attitude of male staff. Not made to feel particularly welcome. No-one asked me if I enjoyed my stay or if there was anything I might like. No drinking glasses or hair drier supplied in my room etc.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        The kindness of the landlord. The type of house (ancient house) and the quiet surroundings. Free wifi access was provided.

        It is a pity to have a swimming pool which is not usable (not maintained).

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        nice surroundings, helpful staff

        room too hot - not easy to open window, cooked breakfast may be too small fpr some

      • Older travelers
        5.0

        Basic, comfortable and convenient accommodation, only 1 Mile walk to the harbour. Parking provided.

        Not a professional or personal service. Grubby and untidy in places.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        it was close to the facilities I required
