Reviewed 15 May 2013

we enjoyed our stay at the summerhill in may. our room was spotless, was slightly dissapointed with the single room, the wall paper was badly marked and very draughty from the wndow. the breakfast was excellent. would benefit from draught beer and not cans and bottles, thats the only let down it as.

Room Tip: dont choose a single room

Rooms are clean and tidy and well presented. The host was superb and nothing too much trouble.

Breakfasts were a delight with poached eggs done to perfection every time.

Would return without question.

We stayed at the Summerhill for two nights in April 2013 while visiting family in the area. We were looking for somewhere to stay that was more than a B&B and could offer evening meal and bar if required. The hotel was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We particularly enjoyed the breakfasts and evening meal where everything was cooked fresh and the chef was very flexible in accommodating our specific vegetarian needs. Overall the hotel seemed clean and well maintained with flat-screen Freeview TV and electric power shower in the room. A lovely stay and we would recommend the Summerhill particularly to anyone wanting to be able to eat to a high standard of freshly cooked food where they are staying. Ian and Sue

Room Tip: We had a standard double room on the second floor. This had a flat screen TV and Electric Power show...

Just returned from three nights at this hotel and I have to say it is the most beautifully kept place with high quality written all over it. We had a balcony room with king size bed which was warm and clean. The ensuite was immaculate and it was handy to have the tea and coffee making facilities available. We could only manage the full English breakfast on the first day and after that had to settle for toast and fruit, which was all very good. Linen table cloths and fine china were the order of the day. The weather was below zero for the whole of our visit and so after we had been out for the day we were glad to return to the hotel. The only downside was that for the last two nights we were the only people in the hotel and so they had closed rooms to conserve the heat. Unfortunately one of these was the bar and although we could help ourselves to drinks to take to our room, leave a note and pay the next day, it's not quite the same as socializing in the bar with the staff and other guests. The service and warmth from Jose and Peter was first class and I would not hesitate to recommend the Summerhill to friends.

October 2012, weather very wet on arrival. Did it matter, no, a very warm welcome and things only got better, including the weather. No moans, no groans, just a hearty thanks to all the family who strive to do all they can for their guests. Thanks, Steve.

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for the extra room of a double, even for single occupancy.

Reviewed 21 September 2012

Unfortunately, my partner had taken ill on the day we were supposed to travel and stay at Summerhill Hotel. We were due in Brixham for a wedding and he was too sick to travel. Understanding the hotel's policy of paying in full as our cancellation was less than 24 hours notice, I dutifully called in and explained the situation to the manager. I fully expected and would have obliged had he said he would charge me for the room. Instead, he was kind enough to say he wouldn't! I so appreciated it, especially since I had already dealt with the stress of having to take my partner to the hospital that morning. If I ever visit Paington or Brixham again, I would definitely book Summerhill Hotel.
