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.

Our experience with Beaches was incredibly disappointing. We made a reservation at this bed and breakfast through booking.com, clearly stating our late check-in time of 11:30pm due to work commitments. Despite our booking being accepted and payment processed, the host called us at 5pm asking about our arrival time. When we reiterated our check-in time, they informed us that they close at 10pm and couldn't accommodate us, leaving us to find last-minute alternative lodging with two young children in tow. Furthermore, the following morning, when we went for the promised breakfast, we found the doors locked, had no response to our calls, and were left waiting outside. Despite all this, we still had to attend a business meeting without having had any food for ourselves or our children. Throughout our stay, we encountered cleanliness issues, including finding hair in our food and cups not properly cleaned. When we raised these concerns with the host, they became defensive and uncooperative, refusing to acknowledge the problems and even resorting to evicting us from the property. In addition to the poor service and cleanliness, we also faced discriminatory behavior from the host, making derogatory remarks and displaying racist attitudes. This treatment was unacceptable and led us to leave the property prematurely. Despite all the evidence we gathered, the owner falsely denied our stay to booking.com and refused any refund. This entire ordeal has been highly distressing, and we are now pursuing an official complaint against Beaches for their unacceptable behavior and lack of professionalism.

Absolutely wonderful B&B, the hosts couldn’t be lovelier, breakfast was delicious and room was super cute. It’s a great location for Paignton beach and parking is so helpful for this location too. We were down for the Great Big Paddle Parade and the hosts couldn’t have been more accommodating for our needs of a good sleep and early breakfast. Will definitely be staying here again ASAP.

Typical seaside B&B. Ged & Claire were very welcoming. The room was comfortable, and the shower was hot. Breakfast was small but tasty. Very close to sea front. Ideal for a getaway and I will use this B&B again

We didn't enjoy our stay as much as we'd hoped. I have to be fair Jed was very helpful and friendly. The decor was out dated and the breakfast tasted like it had all been cooked in the same pan also the cutely had marks on them and the glasses and cups too. I feel that staying here has made me want to rebook the Ashliegh hotel (which was five star all around) whenever we return to Paignton. I have never wrote a bad review but I would like to make others aware and let the host know where there is room for improvement. Many thanks

Response from Beaches Guest House Paignton, Owner at Beaches B and B
Responded 18 Aug 2023
We are always looking to learn and to see how we can improve on providing the best service for our guests so appreciate any constructive advice which guests can leave us. With this review it appears that the guests were unhappy with the decor, the dining ware and the breakfast. With regards to the decor being outdated i will have to disagree, mainly because all of the rooms have recently been decorated and in many cases renovated and up to date photographs can be viewed on our website www.beachesbandb.co.uk. It is a period property however and the decoration is in keeping with this, so perhaps that is where the mix up is. "The dining ware had marks on them" i imagine was possibly watermarks sometimes left by the dishwasher. If there had been anything more I would strongly suspect the guests would not have been happy eating their breakfast with such utensils and would have drawn it to our attention so we could have provided a fresh set. As there was no mention of it and the guests ate their breakfast with no complaint i can only assume this was a minor concern. We will be mindful of buffing up the cutlery a bit more when we lay the tables however to ensure there can be no misunderstandings. With regards to the breakfast we were heartened to see they both ate it all but disappointed in their comments. To clarify in the case of a full English which these guests had, the sausages, hash browns and tomatoes are cooked in the oven, bacon is grilled, baked beans heated in a separate pot, mushrooms and eggs fried, so not all cooked in one pan. We are glad to hear these guests enjoyed a warm and friendly welcome and found the host to be helpful. We work very hard on ensuring our guests have the best stay possible with us which the vast majority of our reviews testify to. We did have some red flags with these particular guests when a relative of theirs booked on their behalf stating they were "now looking for somewhere nice!" giving the impression that where they had stayed previously had been disappointing to them. Unfortunately it would seem they brought that attitude to the Beaches resulting in a 2 star review for their one night stay. It is also disappointing for us that these guests did not leave with the positive impression so many of our guests do and as a result return to us year after year. On departure however just to confuse matters when asked if all had been ok with their stay they replied "yes it has been nice."

The room smelt fresh upon arrival the bed is amazingly comfortable. TV had more channels than mine at home 😄 so sat and watched Gogglebox in the evening on +1. B&B had good WiFi access from our room, lots of informative leaflets in the reception area for tourists. Breakfast was great for our Vegetarian food needs a proper Vegetarian full English very impressed. Hosts very friendly 10/10 from us :)

Having been unintentionally Claire and Ged's first guests in 2018 we have just returned from our sixth stay . Perfect weather an added bonus . We would never stay anywhere else -great rooms , so welcoming ,lovely breakfast and the added bonus of homemade cake . Claire and Ged should be justifiably proud of The Beaches and once again we have booked for 2024 .

Lovely little traditional seaside B&B in a great location. Really friendly hosts and decent breakfast. I will definitely stay here again when I am next in the area for work. One thing though (and to be honest, it was hilarious, although slightly disturbing all the same), but I was in their "honeymoon room" complete with a 4 poster bed and a bit of semi-erotic artwork on the wall. As I was staying away for work and was therefore on my own, it was a little bit disturbing, lol
