The Best Western Passage House Hotel, near the towns of Kingsteignton and Newton Abbot, offers "memorable views of the Teign Estuary", says The AA, and is close to both the English Riviera and Dartmoor National Park.

Torquay, Babbacombe Model Village and Paignton are all 15-20 minutes' drive away. Family-friendly Paignton Zoo Environmental Park boasts 2000 creatures, six animal habitats and even a jungle express train. History buffs will enjoy Torre Abbey in Torquay, a museum of history and art housed in an 18th-century building that's part of a monastery complex dating from 1196.

Hackney Marshes Local Nature Reserve is less than 15 minutes' walk away. Buzzards, kestrels and pheasants are often seen around the marshes and there are a variety of cycling and walking routes.

Dartmoor National Park is 15 minutes' drive from the hotel and Haytor Rocks, which offers excellent views of the Teign Estuary and is one of Dartmoor's most picturesque spots, is 20 minutes' drive away. Exmouth at the western end of the Jurassic Coast is 35 minutes' drive away.

Berry Pomeroy Castle, a Tudor mansion within the walls of an earlier castle, is 20 minutes away, while Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves, an intricate cave system, is a 25-minute journey by car.

This was a great value deal. Comfortable hotel in a lovely location. Shame that the restaurant had run out of several items on the menu at 8pm and it was 9pm before our food arrived at all! The staff were all superb.

Originally offered a room in the North Lodge but was very basic and dark with a very hard bed so upgraded to an estuary room in the main hotel for £20 a night extra, which was well worth it for the views alone. Shared the camembert and had the haunch of venison, both very good followed by the pear tart. Tasty breakfast. Pool disappointing as it was quite small. The Passage House Inn round the corner was a good place for dinner the second night.

Nice quiet situation. Very conveniently situated for trips to Exeter and surrounding areas. Food was very good and a reasonable choice of menu.

Where rooms are offered that are not actually part of the hotel, eg North Lodge, this should be made clear. We were fortunate to change rooms but walking across to the main hotel could have been difficult for us. We have previously searched for hotels in the Teignmouth area and this proved to be very convenient

The restaurant staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you.

Dinner availability was late on first night and the hotel refused to move our dinner option to the second night. Room allocated was in the lodge next to the A381 dual carriageway. Soap dispenser fell off the wall!. Shower rail in the bath was replaced by a hook to hold the shower head but this was too high. The waste bin in the bathroom was not emptied on the morning ready for the next day. When I requested a change of room on the second day the hotel wanted to charge me £20.00 for a room which was no different to the old room although the new bathroom had mould on the ceiling!
