Reviewed 18 August 2013

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in August and can honestly say it is a really welcoming place to stay. The host and hostess are really nice and the breakfast menu was as good as many bigger hotels but served with the personal touch. Our room was perfectly adequate for our needs proving a comfy bed with en suite and a good selection of drinks and biscuits. We would recommend this hotel and will stay there again

Room Tip: Room No 7 is a bit small but perfectly adequate for a short stay.

If you are staying in Paignton this is a great place to stay. It's a small, friendly and welcoming hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast menu is impressive and the food very good. I'd recommend Merritt House.

We stayed for 2 night in Paignton and this hotel was excellent. Absolutely spotless through out, Very friendly and welcoming. Lots of nice quality touches like cakes and Tea/ Coffee in the lounge. Great guide book in the room with lots of local information. Excellent choice of breakfasts too. If we return to Paignton then we will be back.

Spent two nights at Merritt House as a base for for visiting Brixham and Dartmouth, Very warm and friendly welcome from the owners who made us coffee and a selection of home made cakes. Spent time talking to us and making us feel comfortable, Excellent room. Very comfortable bed, Excellent breakfast and first class service and attention throughout. Great value for money. A lot of attention to personal detail and the whole place felt very homely. Ticks all the boxes. The owners have been running this business for 4 years and have set the benchmark for others to follow. As they say in Australia......good on ya'
