“Once more, fantastic!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Amanda and Barry were excellent hosts, this was our second time going to the jacaranda and have no regrets again. The room is clean and perfect for me and my fiancé, the breakfast was out on time and certainly had us ready for the day. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to go if staying in paignton. everything is just like it would be in a five star hotel. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing, handy for families or just couples.

Pleasant little B&B ideally located off the Paignton seafront, not on the main road which is good to be away from the noise of the through road; although within 5 mins walk of the beach and local attractions.

Parking, like with most of the local B&Bs is limited to restricted road parking, and policed by an army of traffic wardens, but we were offered by our hosts the opportunity to buy a weekly parking permit for the multi-story carpark 1 min from the hotel door, which saved us a considerable amount of cash on daily parking fees.

We chose one of the smaller rooms on the top floor, and as we were only there for the evenings it was amply sized, comfortable and lovely place to rest your head.

Our hosts were friendly and welcoming with a "come and go as you please" attitude which such unrestrictions is what you want on holiday!

Would happily return!

This was the first holiday that me and my fiance went on together. Really bonded us both and plan on coming back again. Perfect position as it is only two minute walk to the beach and the pier and shops are only five minutes up the road. Breakfast was beautiful and orange juice was just the thing for the morning drink

Room Tip: Any room is great, land lady will take care of you

We stayed at the Jacaranda for 2 nights on the 22nd and 23rd of November. Amanda and Barry were lovely, welcoming people and cook an awesome breakfast. The B&B feels like home away from home. Situated just 5 minutes away from lots of pubs, the Peer, shops and amusements. I can't recommend it highly enough, we're going back again next year and I'm already looking forward to it.

A lovely guest house in a perfect location. The Jacaranda is highly recommended for mini breaks or longer (wish we had longer). Pubs, restaurants, shops are all within walking distance as is the sea front and station. The guest house is spotlessly clean and all rooms have ensuite facilities. Little extras are included for that personal touch (soap dispenser in toilet, tea/coffee facilities, towels, television). Barry and Amanda are a very warm and friendly couple who go out of their way to make your stay very welcoming. Breakfasts are amazing, especially the full english. A real gem of a guest house who will be recommended to all my friends. We've already booked our return visit next October :)

I have just returned from a weekend stay with the girls at this guest house. We were warmly welcomed and our luggage was carried to our rooms. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast served up by Amanda and Barry, it was delicious. Absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended and would definitely stay there again, in fact have already booked our girlie weekend for next year xx

Room Tip: Close to everything, friendly, very comfortable and beautiful breakfast
