I booked the evening meal option - fantastic everything was beautifully cooked and presented. The breakfast menu was awesome - I highly recommend the Huevas Rancheros. Staff super friendly. My mother and I are already planning on... More

We stayed here based on the reviews we saw on here and I agree with all the comments about helpful staff welcome cuppa etc . But no one has mentioned the evening meals so here goes. They are wonderful, Why go out for dinner when you can walk downstairs and have a really good meal, nice choices, well cooked, good... More

We have spent many holidays over the years in Paignton and in many Hotels, however this year we found the jewel in the crown at the Summerhill Hotel, a friendly prompt welcome, with the offer of tea and coffee on arrival. Our spacious bedroom and en suite was more than adequate for our needs, it was peaceful and each night... More

We decided to visit Paignton and chose the Summerhill after reading the Tripadvisor reviews.It is unusual to view the first two pages of reviews and find that every rating is 5 stars, but the Summerhill achieved those ratings, and having spent three days there we can confirm that they totally justify these ratings. On arrival we were offered tea or... More

We stayed for just one night on our way down to Cornwall. We stayed in the Sydney Winsor room at the front of the hotel. The room was large, very clean and very comfortable and the bathroom had been recently refurbished. The staff were really friendly and the service was excellent. Breakfast food was plentiful and of good quality. The... More

Nice quiet hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms and a good location for checking out the rather cheesy delights of Painton. Try the large front-facing rooms if you want a view. We had the Sydney Winsor Room and you could lie in bed and look at the sea. Nice touch putting binoculars in the room. Food was average but ok,... More
