I thoroughly agree with just about every other review. The owners are brilliant hosts, with a lot of local knowledge. Martin cooks a first class breakfast, and Carol makes a very welcoming cuppa when you arrive. They deserve every success

Carol and Martin are just brilliant. You're given a mug of good strong tea on arrival. Over this, Carol ensures you have all the information you need about local attractions - matched to your needs as ascertained by her. We had room 12 - you can watch the sunrise without even sitting up in bed, then doze off again for... More

Would never consider staying anywhere else in Paignton again [I'm not even going to comment on Preston Sands next door. If you're a bit chilled out like me and you've got a sense of humour it's worth staying once just for the experience !!!] Carol and Martin are perfect hosts, they call everybody by first name and the breakfast is...

Booked in last weekend because of having to do a flying visit to Torbay because of a relative's illness. It was the first time I had stayed here for 25 years and didn't know what to expect, especially as it was very much out of season. I was very pleasantly surprised. Rooms are spotless, and nothing too much trouble for... More
