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.

Room could do with bedside lights - ceiling lights very stark and too bright for bedtime. Same with restaurant - ambient lighting would greatly improve the atmosphere - too bright and canteen-like at the moment.

Views over estuary in restaurant were lovely. It was good to have the option of eating at the Inn on the second night

Our deal included a £30 allowance each on the 1st night in the restaurant. Both of our starters were good and so was dessert and cheese and biscuits, but main course was very disappointing, had catch of the day (sea bass), but it was like it had been put on the plate earlier in the evening and just warmed up in the oven! The waiting staff were polite but they needed a restaurant manager to take charge. We ordered a bottle of red wine, it was put on our table with the statement 'here it is'. It had not been opened and therefore not poured for us to taste

We were disappointed in the Evening meal which was part of the deal. The food was poor quality, the bottled beer was out of date by 6 months and my coffee didn't arrive. We had to wait an hour for our meal to arrive and there was no apology or explanation for the delay. We spoke to the Manager the next morning who reimbursed the cost if one meal but our experience was spoilt and we choose not to eat in the restaurant the next evening.
