We have just returned from staying in Paignton at this Guest house last week. We could not have been more warmly welcomed. We arrived 2 hours earlier than anticipated but were greeted by tea and cakes, even treats for the dog. Room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Jill came in after breakfast each morning to see... More

Perfect in every aspect - I should know as I have been staying here for on average 2 nights a week for the past 5 months. Warm welcome every time, uber clean and faultless. This is home from home for me! Other reviews back this up and this has to be "The place to stay" in Paignton. Only a short... More

A lovely ( Northern) welcome. Very clean, comfortable and well decorated room with everything you could need. Well cooked and well presented breakfast - all done to your choice. Next time we will ask for the evening meal as well.

Stayed there for three nights in the beginning of the Easter holidays this year. Had originally planned to stay in Torquay but couldn't find a place. Was very lucky though to find a room at St. Edmund's. The place is ideally located about 5 mins by foot from the seaside and the train station and bus stops, and all of... More

This was booked on recommendation from the Information Office In Torbay. How right they where. We were welcomed with refreshments, even the dog had her treat. Jill & Tony left nothing out to welcome its guests. The rooms are of the excellence. A top Hotel would have difficulty in matching. The breakfast was exceptional. In fact we did not require... More

Everything about this guest house made it stand out from the usual. The bed in our room was queen sized very compfortable, every where was very clean and colour coordinated, then there were the little extras such as powdered juice and sweets as well as the usual tea, coffee and buiscuits, in the bathroom there were the usual toiletries plus...

Fantastic location very close to the station and the beach. Jill and Tony were very friendly, and seemed to know everything there is about local attractions, restaurants and night life. There was a large selection for breakfast, which all hit the spot. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Would definitely recommend.

This week I stayed in this Fantastic, and welcoming guesthouse! When I called for my reservation, I knew that I was going to arrive late'ish, this was due to my job as taxi driver. This was no issue and problem, all was asked to let them know when arriving later, which sadly turned that way. But Jill assured me not... More

What a wonderful welcome we received, tea and homemade cupcakes, didn't realise what we had found. We stayed for four nights for bed, breakfast and evening meal. Fantastic. Breakfast was just what we wanted, fresh fruit salad and it was fresh, not out of a tin, our breakfast was cooked and well presented. Our evening meal, for the money was... More
