We stayed six nights in the spacious en suite Patricia room with high ceilings and large bay window giving a pleasant view across Goodrington and the sea. Originally we booked two evening meals but then added two extra evening meals as the food was good and pleasantly served. Waitress service at breakfast too. Staff helpful and pleasant. Binoculars in the... More

Our stay was for three nights as a base to explore the south Devon area. Summerhill was clean, comfortable and convenient with delicious meals on offer, free wi-fi and parking. It was well positioned to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Torquay, Dartmoor and a quick trip to Cornwall. We could have easily had a few more relaxing nights at Summerhill to further... More

I have stayed here a few times now and would recommend it to anyone visiting Paignton. It is an outstanding family run hotel a minutes walk away from the beach. I have stayed in different rooms and all were clean, spacious and comfortable. I have found the staff to be very professional, very helpful and with an abundance of local... More

Shame we could only stay one night, the hotel was lovely, really nicely maintained by the family with a few twists in there for people to discover. We arrived a bit early as our plans changed quickly, which to some hotels can mean you're treated like you walked in with muck on your boots, at Summerhill we were greeted so... More

It's my third stay in this hotel and it's very convenient. From the hotel you can see the sea and it's a short walk to the beach or town centre. The rooms are very clean, quiet and nicely decorated. The staff are always very friendly and will help you if you have any problem.

Just returned from a three night stay and found this to be a warm and friendly hotel. Located on quite a steep hill it was good to find that outside the main entrance is a drop off point so no need to hump the cases too far. There is then a couple of well surfaced car parks to choose from.... More

We spent an enjoyable week at Summerhill, we were welcomed with a cup of tea on arrival before being shown to our room which was a fair size and nicely decorated, the bathroom could have been a bit bigger but was adequate. There was an excellent choice of hot drinks on the hospitality tray. The breakfasts were very good with... More

Firstly, we were welcomed to Summerhill into a lovely lounge, full of character appropriate of the Victorian building, & immediately offered tea or coffee, a really lovely greeting. We were shown to our room, decorated beautifully in keeping with the era, but with a modern bathroom. We also had a very pleasant balcony with a table & chairs, along with... More
