“Amazing!! You will miss out if you don't stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2011

We arrived early which was not a problem Nick and Karen were very welcoming and even carried our bags to the room, the room was spotless and cleaned everyday, breakfast was cooked to perfection every morning with endless tea coffee and toast. The location is about a 5-10min walk into town. Overall a really great atmosphere with the owners Karen and Nick could not do enough for you to make your stay a pleasant one.

karen and nick made our stay so welcoming from the time we pulled up on the drive ,until we left, to the point nick becoming our butler taking the cases to and from our room,thanks nick. The breakfast was lovely we did not need to eat for the rest of the day until the evening! karen was so helpful when we gave her some idea of what we wanted to do ,she ensured that we had the information we needed to go to all the places we wanted to visit, both karen and nick were friendly and made us feel at home..we going back one day to thrash them on the wii !! The weather was very kind to us given the time of year we will certainly be recommending them to our friends and family. can you believe i left the camera in the guest house when i most needed it so sorry no pictures.

I stayed in this guest house over Christmas 2010. We were placed in room 6 at the top of the building with a beautiful view over Paignton. One thing that will strike you on you visit is how very friendly the owners are! They can't do enough to help and it really makes a difference. Basically, an extremely good choice and good value location. The only thing that I found disappointing is the shower in the room, it isn't very accommodating for tall people and the water pressure is too low. The guest house is happy to accomodate gay couples.

I only stayed at Aquamarine for a short while, but during that time i was overly impressed with the cleanliness and attention to detail in the whole building and in the rooms.
The rooms are all freshly decorated and are very warm and welcoming. I would go as far to say this B&B exceeds that of some high end Hotels i have stayed in. The owners are also very friendly and eager to help and advise with your stay in the local area.

Most of Paignton's places to stay are either a long way from the town centre or are so central that you think you are actually in the bar-zone. Not so the Aquamarine - it is a short enough walk from both the sea-front and the "High Street", but is out of earshot of both.
The ambience is warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in, and stays like that as you relax into your clean and bright room, or enjoy a really hot power-shower, or stroll into the quiet bar downstairs, or settle down to a very fresh English breakfast, or meander outside in the family garden which catches the sun all day.
Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Karen and Nick, your hosts, including advice on where to go during the day or where the best pub-with-grub is. Wi-fi is available, and mobile reception is really good.
Real value for money.

I initially booked online for a three night weekend break but stayed for five nights! I cannot fully explain in words how welcome Karen and Nick [the owners] made us feel - you will just have to try it for yourselves. The rooms were spacious , spotless, well maintained. and the breakfasts are as good [if not better] many a five star hotel. The guest house itself is in a very good location to explore south Devon and a 5 -10 minute walk to the sea front/town. All in All, it has to be one of [if not the] best guest houses/hotels I have stayed in the UK. I will [if they have vacancies] return again and again.
