What a lovely welcome we had. Clean rooms, hearty breakfast and lovely lounge where we could relax in after our walk along the harbour. Secure Car Parking outside front of Hotel

My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights last week and it was a treat to be able to have a smoking room. The room and hotel were spotless. The room was quite small but had everything one needed. Great central location and a lovely breakfast. Very well run. Would visit again.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2010

I was staying with a friend for a weekend break. The B&B was in a good quiet location with free parking. The twin room itself was fine for the price we paid - old fashioned but an ok size, clean, with small ensuite, kettle, tv, hairdryer. There was a guest lounge which we didn't use, lots of leaflets for things to do in the area, and books and games to borrow if you want to. The food at breakfast was good quality (loved the bacon) and a reasonable portion size - cereal, full English and toast.
However I felt they let themselves down on the customer service front. It was not a good welcome to be told off for parking in the wrong place before I'd got out of the car, neither did I expect to have to choose breakfast before I'd seen the room. When I asked to take my case to the room first, I was told this would inconvenience them. Breakfast is at a non-negotiable 8.30 a.m., so no flexibility for a lie-in, and if you want more than the 2 teabags /2 coffee sachets provided in the room per day you are expected to pay for more.
In summary, if you want a cheapish clean quiet room with no frills and a decent breakfast, this place fits the bill, as long as you don't mind occasionally being treated as if you are still in school.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for the weekend. The hotel is spotless, the breakfast is one of the best I have ever had, everything is piping hot. My friend who is vegetarian was accommodated for extremely well and nothing was too much trouble for Jackie the owner.
The hotel felt like a home from home and is close to the beach and all of the amenities and there is free car parking which is an added advantage is car parking in Paignton is getting scarce these days.

We stayed at this hotel as my mum had just come out of hospital (I would normally stay with her) however I have to say I would definately stay at the hotel again and would recommend it to anyone.

The service was great the bedrooms were spot on. The food was brilliant. The location was just right for all amenities. The only thing was carparking as the weather was not to good it was like parking in a muddy field. If you have children I wouldn't recommend this hotel for them it isn't child friendly! I would recommend the hotel to adults without children.

Jackie makes you very welcome and lays on an excellant breakfast. The rooms are spotless, a refreshing change from some of the larger hotel grotty bedrooms i have used.
The double room a bit on the small side , however the comfortable bed and flat screen TV and good shower makes up for that plus all the little extras in the room.
It is in a good position for the sea front and the town, plus parking is off road and free.
It is excellant value for money and I would definately go back.
The bonus is you are allowed to smoke in your room if you wish.

Stopped here recently for the first time and was very impressed. It has an excellent location, being just 5 minutes from the railway and bus stations and just round the corner from the Green and Seafront.
Jacqui, the proprietor is friendly and welcoming and provides a hearty breakfast. I did not sample the evening meal but I am sure it is just as good.
My room (no. 6) was very comfortable with a lovely bed and a view across the square. While it has a sink it is not ensuite though and the toilet and shower are across the landing for which I had sole use of with key access.
There are many sililar establishments in Paignton but I reckon this is the best of them all-an excellent find!
