Great Western Villa
Ranked #57 of 96 Paignton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Booking was great & kathy extremely friendly-couldn't ask for a nicer lady. Very good location, convenient parking on site and hotel easy to find. The rooms was very out of date, and not overly clean. The bathroom was terrible , euch. Vegetarians were not catered for at all - just had to miss of meat products. No variety for breakfast , we had orange juice poured out for us & no choice of any other juice. No help yourself cereal or fruit. Just a pile of traditional breakkie stuff. Smell of must as soon as you walk in the door. Couldn't leave quicker , after our one night stay.

I stayed in this hotel for two weeks while working in Torquay. The owners are probably the most incredible persons I've ever met! Beautiful place, comfortable rooms, astonishing sea view, amazing persons... what else? :D

I booked this hotel for two people after looking around on the net. The prices are very good, the breakfast superb. The rooms are well sized and very clean. The owners could not have been more obliging. The display od mecano and trains is super.
We only had a one night stay as we were working in the area, we have got to return next month and booked for a return visit before leaving.
We had long coversations with the owners, who are really good company and I look forward to going back next month. Bob and Len.

My third visit to this excellent venue, my dear friends Cathy & Mel never dissapoint. Alway's a warm welcome. Terrific value, great acccomodation and breakfasts to die for. Short walk from Harbour, Beach, Cinema & Shops. Plenty to see and do, summer or winter.In the words of dear Arnie "I'll be back"

A beautiful view of Paignton. We booked two single en suite rooms (but both had a double bed!) and were very pleased, clean & cosy with very comfy beds. The good thing about the hotel is - it very clean. Cathy and Mel make the place warm and welcome. Talk about the breakfast - excellent, keeps you going till sunset. Hop, step and jump your on the seafront. You have a beautiful view of the sea from the dinning room.....a pleasent way to start your day, with a good breakfast. The GWR can be remembered for its glory in the Great Western Hotel.

Room Tip: Need to find the room facing the seafront...

We had a lovely stay at the Great Western. Our family room was spacious and had a sea view. The building could do with a little tlc here and there, but this didn't really detract from our stay. Our hosts, particularly Cathy, were very welcoming. The breakfasts were lovely and Cathy even offered to buy my daughter's favourite yogurt specially for her. Buckets and spades were supplied for the short walk to the beach and everything was done to make our stay enjoyable. All in all, we had a very good value for money summer break.
