Me and my partner have stayed here twice. Will go back time and time again. Super welcoming, friendly, helpful and kind people. Go out of there way to help. And it's clean! Spot on. Would definitely recommend. Booked through late room but book direct there always happy to accommodate you.

We stayed here with our two children during the August bank holiday weekend. The room is clean and welcoming, the family room has plenty of space for the 3 beds in the room. The bathroom is somewhat small and the only negative about the accommodation is that there is no leg room for sitting on the lavatory. Brian, the owner... More

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
