“Quiet”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Found this on the internet and booked a family room which was ideal for our one night stay. We wished we had booked two nights to be honest. Agree with all other reviewers re breakfast (so nice to be served individually instead of the usual buffet style). Most attentive staff and welcoming. Definitely quiet and relaxing, you could spend a week there no problem. Have to say that we were there during a very hot spell and found sleeping difficult in our 3rd floor room but no hotel's fault....far better sun than rain!

Found this hotel by chance on the internet. My choice was made on the basis that this hotel offered suitable wheelchair accessible accommodation for my elderly disabled mother, with sufficient facilities to enable her to have a safe and relaxing holiday, with my own room nearby. The hotel rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated. The hotel itself has character enhanced by the many artefacts and antiques on display. It is very centrally located, with many places of interest and entertainment in relatively close proximity, yet away from traffic and in a safe and tranquil location. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are beautifully cooked and provided sustenance for the day - so much so, we couldn't do dinner justice so didn't try the evening menu, despite being tempted. I would highly recommend this hotel, and hope one day to return

Room Tip: Two rooms dedicated to disabled travellers are available. Top floor rooms are probably the quietest...

Another holiday at this lovely comfortable hotel, with perfect weather this time. Best hotel bed I have ever slept in. The full English breakfast keeps you going all day. I also had several evening meals, plenty of choice and beautifully presented, followed by Tia Maria coffee, perfection!
Sat on my balcony, in the sun, having a cuppa, most afternoons.
Look forward to my next holiday here.

Room Tip: All rooms good, but choose a balcony room to make it special. Room 7 & 8 are favourites

We found this hotel on the internet and booked in for our short honeymoon break. Our room (28) was a good size with a balcony and was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent and so was the optional evening meal. The staff were very friendly and we were made to feel extremely welcome. It is ideally situated a short distance from the town centre and beach and in a nice quiet area to escape the late night revellers.

The rooms were very clean and staff were very friendly. Good choice for breakfast and was of high standard. The hotel is also only a short walk from the beach or into the town centre and there is plenty of parking.

I found this hotel on the internet and the positive reviews made it an easy decision to book with them. The reviews were spot on. From the minute I made contact I was happy with my decision. The web pictures were excellent and showed that it was close to the sea and it was a lovely walk into town whichever way we went. Everything was very clean and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. There were informative leaflets on places to visit and things to do. Debbie, Peter and all the staff made us very welcome, the food was wonderful - easy to over induldge. A perfect location to travel to other villages, such a beautiful part of Egland. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would be very happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: We did not have a room with a view but it was clean and very comfortable for our needs.

What a wonderful hotel. Arrived by motorbike on a Friday and was shown to a large sumptuous room, extremely clean and the most comfortable bed ever! Staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble, would highly recommend to any bikers out there or anyone looking for a nice relaxing stay that is near enough to lively Paignton centre. We will definitely make a return trip.
