We don't often stay in Guesthouses so we were a little trepidatious about staying at the Carrington. From the moment we arrived, however, any concerns we had quickly disappeared. Brian and Angeline, the proprietors, were both welcoming and friendly and efficiently explained everything we needed to know to help our stay go smoothly. We were shown personally to our room...

Booked on Laterooms for a visit to Paignton Zoo a couple of weeks ago. Saw lots of positive reviews which is why we plumped for it. The hosts were great, nothing too much trouble. It's not the Ritz but it's clean, cheap, and well situated for town. Breakfast was call order and you could have pretty much anything you liked.... More

For the price, this B&B is perfect. En suite, clean, a friendly reception and a stones throw from the beach and the strip of bars and shops. The room and TV were small but that's what you expect for the price. No complaints, will return.

The iPad with data (for internet browsing) assisted me to locate this great accommodation at a reasonable price within easy drive to these places, such as Totnes, Brixham etc. Carrington Guest House was listed as the availability on the same day so we...
