“The best place I have stayed for a while”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

have got to say this must be one of the best Guest Houses I have stayed at for a long time. i have just stayed there for a second time and I can't express how good the service was. A very comfortable warm and friendly place. Paul and Michelle make you very welcome. The rooms are so comfortable with all the creature comforts. There is a good choice on the breakfast menu and they can accommodate for all tastes. From a Full English to American style Pancakes and Syrup, If visiting Teignmouth I strongly recommend this accommodation.

Stayed here for 1 night and couldn't fault it. Room was spotless and comfortable, the owners very friendly and helpful. Good quality breakfast, plenty of choice and in a great location. A very enjoyable stay.

We stayed at The Seaway for one night whilst visiting friends in the area. The owners were very friendly & helpful, both while booking the room and once we arrived. The room we had was slightly cramped, but made up for that by being very clean, in good state of repair & everything worked as it should (sadly not the case in so many British guest houses...).

Breakfast was excellent with a good choice, and was made with good quality ingredients. Again a rare and wonderful thing in a British guest house!

I would recommend this as a place to stay to anybody, and would certainly stay again next time we are in the area.

What a fantastic place to stay! Perfectly situated in Teignmouth, the Seaway Guest House is only a matter of minutes walk from the station, sea front, back beach and an array of places to eat, drink and shop. (The Ship Inn and Italian restaurant Fresco are both highly recommended.) The accommodation itself was spotlessly clean and well appointed, there was a great choice of delicious breakfasts catering to all tastes and our hosts could not have been nicer or more helpful. There was lots in the area we wanted to do but didn't have time to - hopefully we'll be back soon! Thanks for a memorable stay!

If you are looking for a guest house in the Teignmouth area then look no further than the Seaway - fabulous location, lovely couple, great,clean, comfortable rooms and amazing breakfasts !!! They cater for all needs (my partner is vegetarian and no problems with choice etc here) You must try the legendary scotch pancakes - cheers Paul! Beware if you are on a diet though! So everything you could hope for and highly recommended, we will be back, all the best Steve & Dor, Stoke on Trent

From my initial enquiry phone call and booking to our stay, we were made to feel very welcome, Seaway walk the fine line between making you feel a welcome individual and being overbearing. Perfect.

Nearby street parking was fine for us

Very helpful giving directions to the venue holding the wedding we were visiting Teignmouth to attend.

We were in the room at the top and back on the B&B, which was quite low. Luckily husband and I are hobbit-like so not an issue, but would be worth checking if you are taller.

Wonderful night's sleep on great big bed and very quiet at the back (we were asked if the seagulls disturbed us, but being from Cornwall, we didn't notice if they were squawking).

The decor isn't 'uber trendy' but it was clean, warm and comfortable.

Breakfast cooked to order and delicious and HOT (is amazing how many places give you a tepid start to the day).

Husband was a little disappointed as he knew it was a dog friendly hotel, and we didn't get to fuss any hounds, but we were introduced to the owners' dog, which I think made his stay.

Great value and if we ever need a place to stay in Teignmouth again, we won't be looking for anywhere else.

Room Tip: Top of the house isn't for tall/ big folk.

Thank you very much for staying with us and for writing such a kind and comprehensive review. Seaway is a Victorian property and most of our rooms have quite high ceilings, however, on the top floor, the ceilings are 6' 8" - 6' 10", so a bit lower than normal and there are a couple of sloping areas near the side walls.
Nice to hear you enjoyed your breakfasts and weren't disturbed by the seagulls - they are nesting at this time of year, so they do squawk a bit at the moment.
Hope to see you again if you visit Teignmouth in the future. Thanks again, Michelle & Paul.
