A short 2 night stay at the Devon House. Met by Richard on arrival who was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the immediate area/restaurants etc. We stayed in the family room with the double and day bed... Both of which are comfy. The full English breakfast was good, and can be changed to suit. The whole guest house is spotless... More

We stayed in a king room. Hosts were helpful and provided a lovely freshly cooked breakfast. All areas were very clean and well maintained. There was unfortunately a few areas which marred our stay. The bathroom was far too small to the extent where we had to dry ourselves in the bedroom. A shelf above the sink made cleaning teeth... More

We've just got back from a 1 night stay at the Devon House Guest House. It really is a great location, you're just a few minutes away from everything in Paignton. The room was great, really clean and had everything we needed. We were on the top floor, and unfortunately due to the large family in the 2 rooms next... More

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!
