I liked to stay in Paignton in a small and nice hotel with friendly staff people.
300 meter from the sea.
Room was very comfortable for my needs, food is top quality, and people is very kind.
The room was a little bit small, but for one week ....
Excellent breakfast and a good looking bar.
Thank you.

We stayed in the Summerhill Hotel for two nights. It was a quiet hotel, a short walk down hill to Goodrington beach and a ten minute walk to Paignton beach. The hotel staff were very welcoming and provided a very good level of service. The breakfast was extensive and very well presented. Although we did feel 9.15 finish for breakfast was too early. The dining area is large and bright , with lovely views. There is also an outside area that you can sit and drink
your coffee. We had a pleasant stay at Summer Hill hotel.

We decided to take advantage of a rare weekend off work with a sunny forecast and booked 2 nights last minute at the Summerhill Hotel, Paignton.
The staff were very welcoming from the moment we arrived and showed us to our room. The room was a little bit small, but fine for what we wanted, and the balcony was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the early morning sunshine before breakfast. The bathroom was lovely and clean, with a shower far too warm and powerful for my poor sunburnt shoulders!
The breakfast was delicious and there was loads of choice: on day one we had the full English, but on day 2 we decided to try the Huevos Rancheros - a spicy traditional Mexican breakfast which we highly recommend! The room in which breakfast was served has got beautiful panoramic views of the bay and local area, and I could have happily sat there for hours and enjoyed the scenery.
A short walk down the hill from the hotel takes you to the centre of town and the beach, just enough to keep you away from the hustle and bustle. A stroll in the other direction takes you down to the bay and a couple of restaurants. We only wish we had more time to explore the local area before it was time to go home again.

I went for a few days to Paignton and stayed at this hotel. It is very beautiful, clean, and has nice shared spaces. Room was very comfortable for my needs, food is top quality, and people is very kind! It is just 5 minutes walking to the beach. I recommend without doubts. First review I do, because it worth it!

A spotlessly clean, relaxing and very comfortable family run hotel. Good choice of food, delicious, cooked to perfection, the only struggle is in finishing the generous portions. Views from dining room and rooms at front overlook beautiful bay. Would definitely stay again.

I knew when we received what turned out to be "spot on " directions from Exeter to the hotel,that Jose would look after us.On arrival we were shown to our room,given the key,told combinationto front door and left to settle in.The room was ideal for us,very big,kingsize bed and en suite with walk in shower,perfect for me as i am disabled ,and with plenty of furniture we were able to store our clothes.Breakfast was served by debbie efficientiy and in a professional ,but friendly manor.It took us an hour befor we could move then we are out for the day.Night time was spent in a well stocked bar,lacking pumps for men who like draught beers,but the staff did pour well from cans from fridge. At thye end of the week we paid our bill that was prepared before hand and we said our goodbyes to Jose, Debbie and family who wished us a safe journey home.We thanked them for good clean accommodation, hospitality,excellant cousine and would book again.Chris and Janet.
