Reviewed 14 July 2014

We are going back to The Briars in August as we had such a marvelous stay in June. Malcolm and Mandy made us feel more like family than guests, nothing was too much trouble for them.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable, also tastefully decorated. Mandys breakfasts must be the best in Paignton(if not the world). The view to wake up to in the morning was a lovely way to start the day and the company in the evening was a perfect way to end it. There are lots of fantastic places to explore in the area, altogether a perfect holiday. Thank you Malcom amd Mandy, we will see you soon.

Room Tip: Front rooms have sea views.

Your lovely comments are really appreciated. We are so pleased tbat you enjoyed your stay with us at The Briars and we enjoyed your company. It is always nice when guests choose to spend a little time in tbe guest lounge and bar as it gives us a chance to get to know them, they arrive as guests and leave as friends . Look forward to seeing you both in August.

Exceptionally clean and comfortable room. Best breakfast ever. Close to many places of interest. We had a delicious evening meal in the Harbour restaurant close by. Would definitely return to The Briars if holidaying in the Paignton area.

Room Tip: Suggest to ask for a sea view

The accommodation is superb. Its situated close to the seafront and ammenities, the views over the harbour are outstanding, with plenty of choice close by for evening meals. Mandy and Malcolm made us so welcome, we feel like part of the family. The hotel and rooms are spotless and extremely comfortable. The breakfast Mandy and Malcolm serve is amazing with a large variety of choice, all superbly presented and cooked. Excellent value for money. After our fourth visit we have already booked for 2015. Highly recommended. Thank you for adding to the enjoyment of our holiday - Gordon and Jean.

I have stayed in many hotels and accommodations all round the world.The Briars is by far the most comfortable, clean, and welcoming atmosphere I have ever visited.. I am a bit disabled and thank Malcolm and Mandy for all their help in making my holiday such a wonderfull experience. Brilliant Breakfast sets me up for the day, then off on a steam train /ferry trip to Dartmouth, Torquay, Brixham . Or, head for the beach (100yds) Harbour, a little further. Includes ferry terminal and Fishing trips. close by,Or wander round the shops and then take refreshments in one of the many restuarants inns and cafes close by.
No hills to contend with, easy accessor just to buses and trains. Everything for everyone. I come here 3 or 4 times a year and always thoroughly enjoy myself. Old, young,or just young at heart , this is the place .for you.
An unbeatable holiday experience.

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent, some have views of beach and sea front etc.
