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

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...

Very welcoming and friendly. Jill and Tony go that extra mile and nothing is too much trouble. From the fantastic breakfasts accompanied by smiles and friendly chatter to the extra touches of cakes, sweets and dog biscuits. Thank you Jill and Tony. It was our first holiday with the pups and you made it very easy for us all.

I've stayed here on a few occasions when I've been to Paignton and Torquay. Gill and Tony (hope I've spelt Gill the correct way). I have usually been with friends and stayed in a twin room. The room is very comfortable and spacious. The room I have stayed in each time has a full size bathroom which is a great... More

We stayed here for just a night as a stop over. We were greeted with tea and cakes on arrival and the hosts tony and Jill were absolutely brilliant. The room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The breakfast was great. This stay made a great end to the rest of our travels. Highly recommend this accommodation.... More

We stayed here September this year, not our first visit but again the welcome, rooms, breakfast and overall cleanliness second to none. The good weather was a bonus. A real home from home atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble for Gill and Tony. Look forward to seeing you again next year. Once again thanks for everything.
