Richard is a great hotelier, very friendly and engaging with the guests. The Hotel itself is nice, fresh and clean. The bedroom we had was spacious, with all the amenities you would need - special mention to the very comfy bed and excellent power shower. Breakfast was perfect!!! Good quality produce and portion size - set us up well and... More

My wife and I returned to Paignton having stayed there during our honeymoon 14 years ago. We booked the Devon House because it was close to where we had stayed previously. We were not disappointed. Richard gave us a warm welcome and helped us with our bags to our cosy double room. The guest house is clean and tidy and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed over the Easter weekend for a couple of nights. Our room was more than what we expected. It was spotlessly clean, the decor was lovely, and bed was very comfortable! Ensuite was small but did the job for us. Breakfast was faultless, even when they were catering for a full house! Endless amounts of toast... More

Me and the hubby went to Devon Guest House over the New Year period and it was very good value for money - we were in the top of the house at the back in a very nice room with a big mirrored wardrobe (the bed could do with replacing as a few of the slats fell when we sat... More

I stayed here with my wife for only one night, but could not have chosen better (booked based on previous TA reviews). Very friendly welcome, the guest house was spotlessly clean and appeared to be recently decorated, or if not, decor was in very good condition. Room was very clean and comfortable, sheets were clean, shower was hot, and in... More

Very welcoming and accommodating owners. The rooms are newly decorated to high standard, interior design feel, very clean, fresh, bright and airy but also warm and cosy (stayed over colder months). Power shower is great. WI FI handy. Really restful sleep. Lovely breakfast. Luxury accommodation at very reasonable rates. Highly recommend it.

Very clean, comfortable beds and a well cooked breakfast. Richard was a lovely host and made you feel very welcome. Just off the seafront and free parking supplied in a private car park around the corner. Unfortunately, I think his wife got out of the wrong side of the bed and was not very welcoming. The adjoining rooms we had... More

Big airy rooms which are immaculate and beautifully decorated. Naomi can be contacted via text message pretty much anytime, which is something I actually quite like as I don't feel I'm being too imposing when I need to check something with her. The parking is a strange one you have to go down the road & stay in the back... More
