Well appointed clean room in a interesting period building, excellent service and friendly staff. Good breakfast too... 2mins level walk to anything you want to see or do in the area. If you're reading this looking for somewhere to stay in Paignton/Torbay - no need to look any further - book-up now!

Well positioned to walk to the beach .helpful and polite owners, great breakfast, could park outside to drop bags only then pick up parking chit and park up the next alley way behind other hotels on an empty section. It suited us we would use them again.

Upon arrival, met by Richard with a very warm welcome. He even upgraded our accommodation, very thoughtful. Breakfast was well cooked and nicely presented. Very good quality B&B. Good job, Richard & Clare

We booked the room last minute. We received a friendly welcome from Richard who was helpful and recommend places to go. Good size clean room. Bed was low down but was comfy. It is in a ideal location and would recommend a visit. Breakfast was good. Was a pleasant short stay.

Very friendly, lovely room made for a perfect weekend with my fiancé. Very nice staff, couldn't do enough for us and would definitely stay there again. Only downside was we didn't have a nice view from our room.

Stayed at Devon House for three days and couldn't find fault with anything! Guest house itself was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The room was very cosy and comfortable. Less than five minutes walk to seafront or town, breakfast was first class. Richard and Clare were very friendly and helpful with great knowledge of the area. They were the perfect... More

Devon House B & B is beautiful and tastefully furnished a really lovely place to stay, almost boutique but not pretentious. The rooms also follow in being tastefully decorated, comfortable and spotlessly clean with nice little luxury touches. The full English breakfast is very good and Richard and Claire where on hand and really friendly giving us lots of tips... More

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
