Having just returned from yet another stay at the Ratcliffe Guest House, I'm delighted to report that it continues to be exceptional value for money. The bedrooms are clean and fresh, and the tea/coffee making facility includes hot chocolate; a favourite of mine. The breakfast menu has a variety of options with the cooked selection being cooked to perfection. Kevin... More

Myself and my elderly parents stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2014, Kev & Anna were great hosts nothing was too much trouble for them.

Me, my husband and our 4 children stayed at the Ratcliffe Guest House for a week in July and had a lovely time. We where made to feel really welcome. The rooms were spotlessly clean and spacious. Each morning we had cereal,a hot cooked breakfast, juice and tea or coffee. We would definitely come back to this guest house again.

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.
