The Redcliffe Hotel

We called in for a cream tea, with my Aunt who is 101 years, she was in a wheel chair, we had to walk around almost half the building on the outside of the hotel, and try to find a fire exit door that was open, so we could enter the building, which we found totally unacceptable.

We did however have a nice cream tea, but totally spoiled, with the Lack of Access for Wheelchairs, to be honest I really thought that all establishments had to have 'Disabled facilities'

As nice as the cream tea was, we will never go back again, until they have better access, Im really not sure how guests who stay at the hotel manage...!

We thank you for leaving us a review but would like to say that we are very disappointed that you feel we have not been satisfactory in reaching an outcome for you and your guests.

There are a range of facilities for the less mobile within the hotel and we are continually trying to improve our facilities to meet these needs.

We always strive to assist any of our guests with entrance to the hotel and would like to clarify that we have ramped access at the rear of the hotel, along the terrace is all flat and very easily accessed and we also have disabled toilets and newly created changing facilities in the leisure complex alongside two of our rooms which we let out for the less mobile guest.

Please be assured that we will always give you our best attention and would like to see you return to the hotel in the near future.

I spent a wonderful holiday with my whole family in this exceptional hotel !!!! The views are unforgettable and the whole stay was as pleasant as you cannot imagine.... The hotel is very clean and it has its own cosy atmosphere. It is located just by the sea, the food is fantastic, the chef is really perfect. Moreover, the staff in the whole hotel are really very kind, helpful and friendly, they do their best to help you to enjoy your holiday as much as possible. We do travel quite often and we have spent a lot of time in different places and different hotels in the world (mostly Europe but in Asia and The US as well) and The Redcliffe Hotel in Paignton has become one of our favourite places. Paignton is also a very convenient place for holidaymakers as in its neighbourhood there is so much to see and if you have not got a car there, the bus station and the railway station are very close to the hotel. We will definitely come back soon (and I am sure we will be regular guests).

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are the best ones but you can enjoy the view from the bar terrace and from the restau...

Have just got back from spending yet another weekend at the Redcliffe. We were in our usual room 101, now freshly decorated with magnolia walls. This is a traditional hotel with traditional high standards of service to match, plenty of waiting staff at dinner ready to serve food of very high standard. The breakfast menu is also very good, with haddock or kippers as an alternative to traditional English breakfast. I opted for mushrooms on toast as my alternative, and they were cooked to perfection. My well traveled bear came with us this time, photos can be seen of him at the Redcliffe at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.613568628737206.1073741836.340563206037751&type=1

Stayed here for a weekend function.
Very smooth check in. Room satisfactory but not great. Nice sea view though.
Evening meal was lovely both evenings as was the breakfast. Staff were exceptional and could not do enough for you. Would certainly return.

Although the location is great and the views are stunning this hotel is very old fashioned, with its nineteen twenties deco and layout.

The staff are keen and friendly and at all times very helpful but this does not hide the fact that you are taking a step back in time.

Only a personnel preference but I do prefer the more modern hotels, saying that I could not really find fault , the food ok but a limited choice, the pool area is a good size with sauna and hot tub and the gym was quite well fitted out.

My room was no 36 with views down the coast with a great size bath and shower, the blankets on the bed were quite old and scratchy but once again it did the job.

As stated if you stay here you will bump into lots of elderly guest as they have been staying here for years and have become part of the charm. (If that floats your boat).

WIFI does not work in the rooms you have to be in reception or close to it

And the furniture in the rooms with free standing wardrobes and old style dressers is a reminder of the age of this place.

We were ready for this hotel, a pool and a work out room! Our rooms faced the water and had a patio, a real treat for us. The rooms were good sized and very clean. The front desk staff and Bell Hop were very helpful in giving us directions. The Wifi was iffy unless you were in the lobby. Breakfast was in a very pretty room overlooking the ocean and the food was perfect.

We have just returned from a fantastic 5 day break at this hotel, we travelled with a large group. We had a room in the tower which wasn't very big but was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable, we had clean towels daily and all the usual facilities, we were in room 61 and the view was stunning, over looking the beach/ sea, the food was fantastic With an excellent menu, the service was perfect and complimented the food, the staff had good knowledge of what they were serving and we're so efficient, the fish dishes were great in the mornings and a great change from the full English, although I did try that too and very much approved, Trevor being my favourite waiter, I was sad I didn't get chance to say thank you and goodbye to him, we used the ballroom every night as it was a privately organised dancing break and again this was perfect, I loved the holiday and would go back, even as a mini break for family, I cannot give it enough praise, thank you to ALL the staff at the redcliffe for a memorable time
