Booking was great & kathy extremely friendly-couldn't ask for a nicer lady. Very good location, convenient parking on site and hotel easy to find. The rooms was very out of date, and not overly clean. The bathroom was terrible , euch. Vegetarians were not catered for at all - just had to miss of meat products. No variety for breakfast... More

The owners could not have been more obliging. The display od mecano and trains is super. We only had a one night stay as we were working in the area, we... More

My third visit to this excellent venue, my dear friends Cathy & Mel never dissapoint. Alway's a warm welcome. Terrific value, great acccomodation and breakfasts to die for. Short walk from Harbour, Beach, Cinema & Shops. Plenty to see and do, summer or winter.In the words of dear Arnie "I'll be back"

A beautiful view of Paignton. We booked two single en suite rooms (but both had a double bed!) and were very pleased, clean & cosy with very comfy beds. The good thing about the hotel is - it very clean. Cathy and Mel make the place warm and welcome. Talk about the breakfast - excellent, keeps you going till sunset.... More

We had a lovely stay at the Great Western. Our family room was spacious and had a sea view. The building could do with a little tlc here and there, but this didn't really detract from our stay. Our hosts, particularly Cathy, were very welcoming. The breakfasts were lovely and Cathy even offered to buy my daughter's favourite yogurt specially... More

Only stayed the one night, but this place is situated close to sea front and town which was ideal. We had a very friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble, we would come back again as great value and location. Only very minor comment is the decor is very dated, but if you look past this, it's well worth... More

Excellent basic hotel, made to feel welcome from the second we walked through the door. Supurb cooked breakfast, excellent service from everyone. If you want a clean basic hotel to sleep in, have breakfast in and then go out for the day, in the Paignton area this one will take some beating. Even the beds are good and the room... More
