We have just returned from yet another brilliant 4 night stay at the Briars. It never fails to impress. Mal and Mandy strive to make your stay great. Their hospiality is second to none. The hotel is always spotlessly clean and the breakfast is amazing and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is situated two mins from all the attractions in Paignton where there is so much to do. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from to suit all tastes. At the end of the evening chill out with a drink in the Briars bar with Mal and Mandy who welcome you in the comfort of the lounge.
This was our 6th visit and we will be sure to return and are already looking forward to it.

Room Tip: Travelling with family - room 8 is a great size family room

I have just had a family holiday from 27th-31st may 2014 at the briars in paignton.we have just returned home this afternoon {31st may} from 4 great days and nights staying in the briars.mandy and malcolm who run the briars were brilliant hosts once again nothing was any trouble for them.All the rooms are always clean and tidy there is a beverage tray in the rooms.My room had great view you could see the sea and along the front from the window. Breakfast was cooked to perfection by mandy who has malcolm and another girl on hand to help her. If you are looking for a place to stay in paignton give the briars a go you will you will get a warm and friendly welcome.

Room Tip: ALL THE ROOMS ARE GOOD WITH A SEAVIEW A lot of the rooms have a bath or shower in them

Just packing at the end of another lovely visit to The Briars. Great seeing Malcolm and Mandy again, they really look after their guests very well, and because of that they keep on coming back! Just looking in the guest book st the number of repeat visits tells you their popularity with their guests! The rooms are well furnished, the beds comfortable and breakfast is a treat!

Spend some time in the bar with them at the end of a day visiting the various attractions in the area and get to know them as friends as we do, you'll be coming back for many years.

Hope to see you again soon!

Room Tip: Room number one is great, open the curtains in the morning and look across Torbay - fantastic!

My husband & I spent 4 days here in May & had a wonderful break. Malcolm & Mandy were a wonderful couple who made us feel very welcome. Our room had a beautiful view & was very clean with a generous beverage tray. Breakfast was cooked to perfection by Mandy & Malcolm was on hand to make sure you had all you want. If you want to round your day off then a bar is on hand at the hotel as well. We would definitely stay here again as it was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Thank you Malcolm & Mandy.

Room Tip: Room 7 for the best view over the bay.

Our room was spacious, clean with very good facilities, tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc...
Toiletries, hair dryer and soft white towels changed as and when wanted. Breakfast by far excelled anything one would have expected. Malcolm and Mandy made us feel very much at home and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful and clean everywhere. Not a fault to be found. Highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in the Bay.
