Hubby and I stayed for 2 night's. It was easy to find. The room was at the top of the stairs. Three flights up. However that's our only flaw. The room was compact but beautifully decorated and the bed very comfortable. The pillows soft. The lounge was very comfortable. Our hosts Paul and Gail were very accommodating and really friendly....

Stayed for two nights while looking around the area. Paul was very charming, polite and very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Didn't have the breakfast but it did smell yummy. Thanks for a nice stay would stay here again for sure.

Stayed during September and found that this Hotel is in a quiet part of Paignton but still only a few minutes from the beach. No shops nearby but there is a restaurant bar next to the beach and a public house a few doors away from the hotel, but I think was due to close down. You are only a...

We arrived and had to wait 3 hrs for our room! The room was a tthe top of 3 flights of stairs and quite disappointing! Shower and toilet in a cupboard! Sink right nex to the lumpy, squeaky bed! Not a great nights sleep! 4 stars? Not sure how, but the breakfast was tasty but he dining room was cramped.

We are sorry this guest was not happy with his stay. Check in time is clearly stated on all booking sites as 3.00pm. If guests turn up early as the guests did in this case our policy is to let guests into their room if it is ready but if the change over of the room is not complete then...
