Having read a lot of reviews for this Bed and Breakfast, my wife, her father and I were not disappointed. We have stayed in Paignton before but not at this B & B. The first nice touch was a phone call we received a couple of days before our arrival - to establish what time we were to arrive, so they could be ready to meet us. True to their word, when we arrived on Saturday both Malcolm and Mandy were there to meet us and go through the booking procedure. Mandy also offered to show us to our rooms and Malcolm assisted in bringing up our luggage ( something very often missed by outher hoteliers ). This B & B lived up to the fine reputation it has.The room was very clean and well furnished with a comfortable bed, tea making facilities, hair-dryer, clock radio and digital TV -to name but a few things. The breakfast was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Malcolm is the front of house, being an ex-publican and Mandy does the cooking ( all breakfasts are cooked fresh ) and also assists with the cleaning. There were two young ladies ( Daniel and Tasha ) who served breakfast on some of the days. There was a great choice of cereals and other options before the main course - which you can also choose what to have. We had room 3 ( which is a small double treated as a single ) which has a rear facing view. The other room was 9, which has spectacular views of the sea front. One small issue with room 9, which Malcolm and Mandy full acknowledge, is the very small bathroom. However this room will be refurbished in the Autumn. Car Parking is provided and it is only a brief walk to the harbour, sea front and town centre. My father-in-law is 83 and could do these walks - so they really are that close. The web site offers the option to look at all the rooms before booking and there are superior rooms on the first floor. The hospitality was excellent and we would definitely stay here again. Great B & B.
