Having just spent 5 days at this very cosy and very clean hotel ,on June 9th -13th 2014 , Ihave no hesitation in thanking Kevin and Anna for there great hospitality .
I also recommend this hotel for its prime position and easy accessible location .
You couldn't wish for better hospitality ,than what you receive at the Ratcliff hotel Paignton.
Thanks for an excellent stay Kevin and Anna

I booked a room for a friend of mine from Germany who came to stay here in South Devon for eight days. She was absolutely delighted with the guesthouse, the wonderful hosts Anna and Kevin and the excellent service both provide. Many thanks :-) The room was bright and spacious, clean and tidy.
Big advantage that the guesthouse is situated close to the station and coach station and easy to find. Town centre, beach and pubs are just round the corner. What a great place to stay, and I can certainly recommend it.

If you are looking for a very clean, nice, in a perfect position hotel, look no further, this is the place to stay
The owner is friendly and very helpful, the room is very spacious and the hotel is five minutes walking or less from the beach and may be one minute from the supermarket....
Price wise it is a real good deal, one of the best prices around here
I already book a room again.....

Had wonderful break at the Ratcliffe Guest House with our Grandson, who likes it just as much as we do. Kevin and Anna are wonderful hosts, and the breakfasts are great. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: All the room are good, very clean and tidy.

Stayed here with my disabled wife .The reason we chose the Ratcliffe was the stair lift as she has great difficulty with stairs .The quality of service we received from Kevin and Anna was beyond our expectations and the breakfasts we were offered were first class.During our stay one of their parents had a family crisis in Bristol but this not affect their customer service for which we praise them.We would recommend a visit and can assure you will not be disappointed in the service,the hospitality or the value offered by such delightful hosts.

Room Tip: Our room was ideal and never heard any complaints from other guests.

Stayed here last week with my wife, In-laws and very excitable toddler! It was our first stay here however my In-laws have been coming back for years and I can see why. Anna & Kevin provide excellent service from the very clean and comfortable accommodation to the excellent breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble and they will go out of their way to help. The location of the Ratcliffe Guest House is really good, within easy walking distance to the beach front, parks, town centre, bus and rail services. I would highly recommend this Guest House when staying in Torbay.
