This B&B is in one of Paignton's original grand Victorian houses. It is very close to the sea front and the harbor and within easy reach of a great variety of restaurants. Cathy, who runs it, could not be more friendly and helpful. She serves up a wonderful full English breakfast for her guests. The rooms are decorated in a... More

We wanted to be close to the seafront as we were going to the BMAD festival. We could see the hotel from where we had parked the bike on the front so the location was spot on. The owners were friendly, even though we interrupted the football! We had seen that we were booked into the compact double room so... 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
