    The staff were excellent and the service top notch

    Although rated as 4 star. It was not 4 star as most would expect. The rooms are dated and in need of refurbishment.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Good, old fashioned service levels from well trained staff.

    The en-suite bathroom although clean, was in need of refurbishment.

  • Single

    The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There were ample car parking facilities, and although it's sited on a main road, the room was quiet.

  • 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!

  • Group of friends

    The hotel has a certain amount of old fashioned elegaance. And the experience of sitting on the terrace with a drink looking down on to the grounds was beautiful.

  • Family with children
    10.0

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

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    I enjoyed the dinning room food was excellent and evening piano just icing on the cake

    I did not like the lounge area very shabby no entertainment not even back ground music waiter in a hurry to serve coffee and send us of to bed

  • 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

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The service in the restaurant and the quality of the evening meal was of particular note

    The size and standard of the en-suite bathroom was particularly poor for a 4* hotel

  • 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
    10.0

    The staff,service and food were excellent,nothing was to much trouble.As golfer and swimmers and keen gardeners it ticked all my boxes. Also as I am 63 and my wife 62 we felt young.Will definately stay at the Palace again
