A really lovely stay, good value for money. Very good location as you can walk to Paignton and travel to surrounding areas easily. Breakfast was lovely and owners were very friendly and welcoming. Loved the teddy bears on the doors!

I stayed here with my mum for one night and we had a wonderful stay. We were welcomed in with a cup of tea, which was much appreciated after our long journey. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! We would definitely stay here again.

I've been to a few b'n'b's and to be quite honest it's the best I've been to. From the welcome to the food, which will keep you going til about 6 o'clock, the rooms, the location, but more importantly the people that run the hotel make it the complete package maybe on paper a 3* place for me 5 stars...
