We are from Scotland and decided to fly to Exeter airport, hire a car and then drive to Paignton. Certainly a good way to do it as short flight, great wee airport and only 30 minute drive to Paignton
Chris greeted us at the door and explained how things worked, buzzer if we needed them, breakfast etc. he showed us to our room and showed us where everything was and left us to it.
Room was fine, nothing particularly fancy about it but comfy bed, nice sofa and ceiling fan which was excellent given the weather. Plenty tea n coffee stuff and also shampoo etc in the bathroom which was good. Also a fridge was provided -also great given the weather as able to keep cold drinks and after sun in there!
Easily one of the best cooked breakfasts we've had in any hotel. Cooked fresh in the morning and plenty of choice. I actually also like the fact we were left alone just to eat it in peace!
Parking is provided at a car park on the next road to Garfield Road, beside the Inn on the Green pub and tickets for this were provided by the hotel so that was good too.
On a road leading off a green which sits alongside the pier and the beach so good location and quiet enough for where it was.
The area of Paignton, Torquay and surrounding is gorgeous. Must do visits are babbacome cliff railway to the beach and to the village of Cockington as both are stunning. Also Brixham is beautiful although busy. Dartmouth is also lovely.
Inn on the green best for food. The factory round the corner also good. Not impressed with the wether spoons or Henry's bar.
Good holiday, good b n b. one major annoyance was almost every place we went to checking if they could accept our money due to their being Scottish notes!!!!! They are Pounds sterling whatever way you look at it!!!!! Incredibly annoying and actually began to make us very angry and it would actually put me off this area again to be honest. However, good outweighed the bad and, all in all, a good holiday
