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

I'm working in the area and this is my second week in this uber friendly and clean establishment. Nothing is too much trouble for Tony and Jill who run St. Edmunds. The rooms are clean and well appointed and they are very flexible in providing an early breakfast for an early-bird business-man such as myself. I can't recommend this Guest... More

My wife and I decided to have a couple of days away and we wanted to take our dog with us too. We were looking at South Devon b&b's that were dog friendly and found St Edmunds guest house in Paignton. After looking on their website we decided to book it, as it was close to the beach and the...
