My husband and I took our 2 year-old for the weekend and it was just lovely. The proprietors were so welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was delicious- good variety and well made. Our grand-daughter is neither badly behaved nor perfectly behaved- she is 2. But in spite of a few wobblies she was fine and we didn't feel we had disrupted... More

Myself and three business colleagues stayed at the Commodore for four nights. The rooms were bright very clean and comfortable. It's my second time to stay at the Commodore, it's a home away from home, they are so friendly you feel like part of the family. The breakfast is fabulous and will set you up for the day. They have... More

I booked a room for me and my daughter as she was sailing in a National Series event at Paignton Sailing Club. The booking was rather last minute and I didn't know what to expect. On arrival we were very pleasantly surprised to find that although the B&B is about 1/2 a mile from the club, all the boats were... More

We have lost count of the number of times we have visited "The Commodore" with our Black Lab. "Barney" Every visit is special as we are treated as old friends. Our new Black Lab, Storm, was made very welcome despite being a very active puppy. (He is 2 years old now and much better behaved). Stuart's breakfasts are amazing and... More

This was the second time we stayed at the Commodore and as before it was excellence all the way. Great room, great breakfast, great views from the room and superb hosts in Katrina and Stuart who are quite happy to sit with you and point out where to go and what pubs we can take our dog to which now...

The first and last time that we decided to find a place when we got there. After driving around trying to find Prince Harry's latest favorite pub we happened upon the Commodore. In a row of similar buildings we picked the Commodore because of the pink color, boy did we luck out. We got room facing out to the sea... More

This is our 3rd visit. We love coming here. Stuart & Katrina are lovely, friendly and very welcoming. We chose to stay here as our Cocker Charlie is made very welcome too. When we arrive he is given a "Doggy Bag" with towels, blanket and food & water bowls. The cooked breakfasts are lush too! We will be back!

We went to visit a relative and sought a reasonable priced room. The Commodore was quite, friendly, lovely breakfast, good location with lovely views, if you book an upgrade for an extra £10. Not 5 star What more could you want.

Thanks for a great review, we are not 5 star, which is why we are so reasonably priced. When we were rated by the AA and Visit England we were rated as 4 Star, however as most guest didn't have a clue what the ratings meant, we decided to let our guests rate us and for us to concentrate on... More

The beach is just across the road, as is the 3D cinema, Pirate Bay crazy golf and the new Geo-Play park which is free and the kids love it. We welcome families with children and dogs and our aim is to make your stay as welcoming and relaxing as possible. 4 of our rooms have uninterrupted sea views across Paignton Green to Torquay and Brixham. The location is excellent with bus, coach, railway stations, the town and the harbour ferry services just a few minutes walk away. ... more   less
