Myself, my husband and our 3 children stayed at the Ratcliffe guest house for 4 nights. Kev and Anna were very friendly and breakfast was superb. Our children are fussy and Anna even provided their favourite cereal! The room was lovely and spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed staying at the Ratcliffe and would not hesitate to book again! Sara

The Ratcliffe Guest House in Paignton was an excellent stay, very friendly service and it couldn't be in a better location with reserved parking. The room was clean and very spacious. If I need a place to stay around the Paignton/Torquay area again then I shall definitely be returning. Thank You.

My husband and I and our 5 children have just returned from a fantastic week at The Ratcliffe Guest House. The rooms were very clean and the beds extremely comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The kids sometimes requested items not on the main breakfast menu and these requests were always accomodated. Location-wise, we loved the fact that the Ratcliffe... More

We had a stay of 3 nights at The Ratcliffe Guesthouse. The hosts Anna and Kev are friendly. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable. The Ratcliffe Guesthouse is near to shops, pubs, restaurants and the beach. The breakfast was good. We had a nice stay with wonderful trips to Dartmoor and Dartmouth!

This was our second visit to the Ratcliffe and again we were not disappointed. The room was clean and spacious, with a HUGE bed and a sea view. The breakfasts were always cooked well and we particularly like the ticklists that we filled out every night so that we knew what we would get the next day. Anna and Kev... More
