Steve and Freda are great hosts. Although we only stayed one night, they made us very welcome, and Steve provided very good food (evening meal and full English breakfast) as well. Freda even organized for some of my belongings to be returned home, so an extra special thank you, and a good indicator of how well you can expect to... More

This was one of the best B&B we stayed at during our latest stage of the South West Coastal Path walk. Freda and Steve were fantastic hosts - welcoming on arrival and very attentive without being intrusive during our short stay. The went the extra mile when one of our group needed to send to some clothes home . Accommodation... More

You have to pre order your breakfast the night before but that wasn't a problem. The breakfast was lovely and fresh. The hotel itself needs some TLC, we had a... More

Freda made us feel very welcome, and was most helpful in offering and supplying gluten free vegetarian meals for my two nieces. We had dinner on our first night, and really enjoyed it, especially the fish pie! Breakfast was excellent, and again Freda was very conscious of distinguishing between normal and gluten free toast. Good parking, and close to the... More

Freda & Steve made us feel very welcome on arrival. Tea was served within 10 minutes of arrival. Rooms were readily available even though we arrived early lunch time. Both our rooms were suitable to both myself and grandson whilst my wife had her own. Nothing is too much trouble for our hosts. Breakfast comes fast and served with a... More

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
