Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Paignton Harbour is part of the Geo-Parks Sightseeng leisure walking tours in S Devon.The small fishing harbour at Henderson`s Fresh Fish is located neaby; where white fish and trout cod roe can be purchased.We bought fresh plaice and enjoyed a fine supper at our appartment during our short break.Suggest that visitors look closely for fresh fish signage at Paignton Harbour.

Public toilets in Paington
The Public toilets in Paignton area are absolutely disgusting!
On a recent visit to Paignton, after not visiting for several years, I was disgusted to find the the public toilets are filthy. If the public are now charged 30p to use them, they should at least be clean and reasonably well maintained. I used several of the ladies toilets, but those at Paignton harbour are particularly bad!
I paid my 30p via my card. On entering the toilets, it smelt awful. There was water all over the floor by the wash basin which looked like it hadn't been clean in weeks, the lavatories themselves were filthy and the water was constantly running from the cistern! What a WASTE of water.
Do the council NOT care enough about their visitors to keep the toilets clean and in good order or is it just a case of grab the money and run. I live in a smallish village in the Midlands and our public toilets are beautiful and clean a pleasure for our visitors to use - and they are free!
No one mind's paying to use the toilets if they are clean and well maintained but Paignton toilets a disgrace!

It's absolutely grubby, just like the rest of Paignton. 'The English Riviera' label is utterly LAUGHABLE!

First time of staying in Paignton and amazed at this lovely traditional harbour. Plenty of boats and activity and still interesting on another evening when dining nearby.

The harbour sits at the far end of Paignton...depending upon which end you are at of course.

It is a nice old harbour surrounded by places to eat and drink....some very nice housing and good views. Worth a visit for sure.

A nice little harbour with a few bars and restaurants. Just a short walk from the town centre. If not visiting one of these 1/2 an hour is plenty.

Lovely harbour. The jewel of it is the Harbour Lights restaurant. We sat on the seats at the end watching the boats and jet skis after lunch. Worth a visit.
