The Clifton is the best place to stay in Paignton. We have been back for the second year running and would not consider staying in any other accommodation. Freda and Steve are warm, welcoming hosts who are always pleased to welcome families with young children. The accommodation is clean and well maintained providing a comfortable stay. The breakfast (cooked by... More

This is a fab hotel,we had a family room and double room, both were light and airy and spotless. Freda and Steve were most welcoming and the breakfasts of a morning were delicious. Its a stones throw from the beach and all of the shops.I would highly recommend The Clifton!!

We stayed in two separate twin rooms, both were very clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is lovely with a very homely feel. Breakfast was wonderful, even making one of our party a vegetarian cooked breakfast! So close to local shops, bars and the beach. But on a peaceful road. Freda could not of been more welcoming and happily gave... More

The hotel is close to the sea front providing a great base to explore Paignton. If you stay here, you are guaranteed a very warm welcome (tea and coffee provided on arrival was most welcomed after a long drive) and comfortable stay. The rooms are spacious and the shower is powerful - better than some hotels we have stayed in.... More

If you're looking for a guesthouse within a stones throw of the hustle & bustle of Torbay road, but equally within walking distance of the Esplanade then The Clifton fits the bill. Service was welcoming, warm and very hospitable, however our family room was relatively basic in terms of creature comfort, most certainly could have done with a little TLC... More

Fabulous, faultless & so very, very friendly. Freda & Steve could not have been more welcoming & helpful. Greeted with a cup of tea on arrival. Our room was spotlessly clean. The location of the hotel is just a couple of minutes walk from the beach, bars & shops but still far enough for nighttime noise not to be a... More

Just came back from our stay at The Clifton and would most certainly recommend it! We were made to feel like visiting friends from the moment we arrived and Freda and Steve were extremely accomodating for our 8 month old son, doing everything they could to help make things easier for us on our first trip away with a baby!...

The welcome as always was friendly with a choice of drinks and biscuits on arrival, we arrived together with another couple and Steve and Freda ensured that we... More
