I stayed at this B&B with my autistic son and my mother for four nights and we all enjoyed the Richard and Clare's hospitality. The location at Paignton in excellent: some 3 minutes' walk from the railway station and the same distance from the beach; across the street is a lovely little park. So the guest house is located in... More

We booked our trip to South Devon late but luckily came across this lovely, relaxed, friendly b&b. Not only did they make us feel welcome....they were interested in what we wanted to do/visit in the area and helped recommend where to go. Thoroughly genuine nice people 😊

Richard and Clare were really welcoming and extremely helpful, providing a travel cot for our 4-month old daughter as well as excellent restaurant tips and other useful information. Our room (Room 1 on the website) was spacious (even with the travel cot taking up quite a bit of space) and very attractive with its bay window, fireplace and wooden flooring.... More

We had a wonderful stay at Devon Guest House. The host was very helpful and friendly. Only one little problem was at breakfast a bit cramped but the full English was very good. Location was only 5 minutes from the sea front and about the same to town centre. We would definitely return.

Out stay at Devon House Guest House was only for 1 night, but it was just what we needed; a beautiful room, with adjoining room for our friend, a wonderful welcome from host, Richard, & tasty breakfast- fantastic! Perfectly situated for easy access to beach and harbour, the town of Paignton could do with updating but could not fault the... More

Richard greeted us warmly, despite our very late arrival due to unexpected travel disruptions. The accommodation is lovely; clean, stylish with comfortable beds & a fantastic, powerful shower. There are nice touches like toiletries in the bathroom & a hair dryer in the room. The location was perfect; minutes from the seafront in one direction, minutes to the station in... More

Visited the Devon Guest House for 2 nights from 16 - 18 June. Overall first impression was very good, the property was well maintained in keeping with the original style and the rooms were modern. We stayed in room 5 on the top floor. The room itself was spacious, light and airy with modern décor. Plenty of storage with a... More

Me and boyfriend recently stayed here for one night as we were visiting the Zoo the next day and we loved it! The room was lovely and very homely. The breakfast was brilliant and perfect size. Also the hospitality from Richard was excellent as he recommended an Indian restruant for us to eat out at which was very nice :)... More
