“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I had a very comfortable stay in the Devon House, the host's are very accommodating, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this guest house to anyone that wants to spend time in this part of Devon. I had been in Paignton looking around the area for a future move and they helped me immensely. I hope to go back again soon and fingers crossed to book in to the Devon House again. I had a lovely room (room 2) with en-suite and tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was turned down every evening if I wanted it. I look forward to my next visit, that's if I can get booked, ( I know they will be busy).

Room Tip: All rooms on this guest house are good.

I recently travelled to Paignton on business and had done the usual hotel searches when the Devon House Guest House popped up on Hotels.com. It's well rated and deservedly so; the place has been fully decorated and refitted tastefully very recently. The rooms all appear to be en-suite, which is always welcome; they are well proportioned too. If you're used to budget hotels, the rooms are almost palatial! The bed was big and comfortable, the wardrobe had plenty of hanging space (and plenty of hangers too). In addition to the double bed, a sofa was provided and there was still plenty of room to move about. The shower room was clean and functional - the shower produced a nice jet of hot water, shampoo, conditioner and gel were all provided too. En route to Devon I had a call from them to check my anticipated arrival time - a nice touch! The cooked breakfast is a winner - an FEB served buffet style, although you can order eggs the way you want them. At all times the service was attentive and exceptionally friendly. Chatting with the proprietors, I really like the fact that they'd sacrificed a number of bedrooms in order to give more space and better amenities (a bathroom) in each guest room. It also helps with the personal touch - both Naomi and her husband are personally very engaged with their guests. It made for a very friendly and high quality stay. I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend this excellent guest house to anyone.

From booking to leaving Devon house was a joy,Naomi even sent a text when we was on our way down to let us know our room was ready early should we wish to book in early which was great as it meant we could park up and enjoy the day,on arrival we was greeted and given parking slips for all our days for a car park just round the corner which was great,Naomi then showed us to our large room (room 1) with a view to the pier,there was fresh bottled water, biscuits and all hot drinks on a tray and complimentary good quality soaps etc in the bathroom which was much appreciated,the room and bathroom was absolutely spotless,on a night your room has a superb turn down service whilst your out where they close your curtains turn the lamps on and ready your sheets on the bed even putting chocolates on your pillows,unfortunately the wife got to hers first!all drinks where also replenished each night as well,breakfast in the morning was great with a help yourself hot buffet which I love as I like an ample breakfast rather than been presented with just one item of each like some hotels,Naomi kept us topped up with fresh tea and toast and we also met Eddie who is a real character and cooks a mean breakfast which kept us going most the day!the location of this hotel is great at the end of the street is the sea front the other end a park leading to the town both just a couple of minutes walk,this place was first class and no review can do it real justice,bravo Naomi and Eddie we had a great stay and will see you again!

We have stayed here in the past and its always nice to return when we are in Paignton .
Naomi and her other half are very welcoming hosts, We had room 5 , A large room with a lovely bathroom , there are nice little touches like shampoo, shower gel and moisturizers, the sort of thing you would expect in a good hotel really, they even turn down the bedding and leave a chocolate on your pillow.
Breakfast is buffet, with fresh coffee, fruit juices, some healthy stuff (i avoided that) cereals, yogurts, croissants,Toast and preserves as well as the full English , scrambled egg, decent sausages, bacon ,beans, black pudding , mushrooms and hash browns, dont think i forgot anything, You wont be leaving hungry.
You will be hard pushed to find a better place to stay in Paignton , my only gripe is AbbA ! come on guys seriously !!!

Room Tip: Room 5 or 6 are nice rooms

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful guest house over the Whitsun Bank Holiday, nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people, my son, partner and their two beautiful daughters were also staying for the same period, I emailed them with a request prior to our arrival which was very quickly answered, and with an outstanding offer!
We were greeted upon arrival with the offer of help to carry our luggage to our room, issued with complimentary parking tickets to be used at a very local car park which was very convenient as we arrived quite early, so we were able to park the car and get on with our holiday as soon as we arrived.
The room was spotless, very contemporary with whiter than white sheets, pillowcases and towels.There was a very good supply of tea and coffee, plus lovely complimentary biscuits, more than you get at the usual B&B establishments!.
A turndown service was provided in the evening which was an excellent touch, curtains closed bedside lights switched on and chocolates on the pillow...perfect!!!
Breakfast was excellent, all the usual ingredients served on a buffet style format, which is different from the norm but works very well, tea,coffee,and toast was brought to your table as per order, regular checks on the buffet ensured that none of the ingredients ran out in a very well organised dining room, regular checks were also made by Eddie and Naomi to see if everything was o.k, and they would always have time for a little chat.
This Guest House is very different from the usual B&B in that it is ultra modern, but the original features have been retained, it has been upgraded very sympathetically.
Location of these premises is outstanding, literary 2-3 mins either way to the beach or town centre.

I found Devon House online, and it immediately stood out against the other guest houses in Paignton. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and shown a couple of rooms to choose from. The rooms are all beautifully decorated as is the rest of the hotel. It's modern but really compliments the original features of the building, which they have worked hard to keep. The room was spotless and there was plenty of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The breakfast was yummy and the service was perfect. The owners are so lovely and we can't wait to go back and see them again one day!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, but I preferred the rooms at the front of the house as they had the huge origi...
