Presumably the Gleaneagles Hotel Torquay and not the rather good namesake in Scotland...
Like many seaside towns, Torquay hotel owners like using established brand names!!
There's a Grosvenor House as well as The Grosvenor.
And one sneaky owner named their hotel The Berburry (just switching the e and u).
I've popped into the Spar (I think there's only one) a couple of times but haven't spotted Alison.
