We had a very good welcome . Shown around the hotel and taken to the room .The breakfasts were very good and asked how we like them .And the evening meal was very good (the best steak we have had for a long time) The room was very clean and tidy and the en-suite was very good.

We were visiting relatives nearby, stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice room with balcony. Breakfast was excellent each day, and we enjoyed one evening meal. Very friendly and interesting owners, who obviously take great pride in their hotel. We would certainly return when next in Paignton.

I stayed for work, for 1 night, and was disappointed with my experience. I had a warm welcome, but from then on was made to feel like an inconvenience. I hadn't booked and ordered my dinner at breakfast, so may not be able to have dinner (I had just checked in) The food was very old fashioned, large portions on... More

A very clean and comfortable hotel. We got a warm welcome and an excellent cooked breakfast. The bathroom was great with an excellent shower. I visit Paignton often and will not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here accompanied by my disabled mother and we spent a most enjoyable few days. The family and staff were very welcoming and we were given 5 star treatment throughout. The breakfast was superb as were the evening meals. Fine dining without a doubt. The room was very comfortable, well equipped and with a lovely view of the bay.... More

My wife and I decided for the Summerhill Hotel because of its Victorian character. We were warmly welcomed, had a nice and tidy room with balcony with view to the bay, the food was excellent, breakfast enough for the whole day, dinner very tasteful, the family and all their helpers very warm and attentive. All in all: next time we... More

Definitely makes a change from modern look-alike impersonal hotels. This hotel has generally retained its Victorian character which means it could be called old fashioned. This is a good or bad feature depending on your taste. The owners are very welcoming and anxious to please, rooms are clean and tidy but maybe now appearing a little tired. We stayed in... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Summerhill hotel. It was originally a large Victorian family home, but has been tastefully converted into a small-ish hotel. The room was clean and comfortable and the hosts very attentive. Dinner and breakfast were very good. My only complaint is the portions were too large and I couldn't finish them! we... More

What a brilliant find! On entering the hotel, for us, it had the wow factor, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and a very warm greeting from the owners and staff. We stayed in the Sydney Windsor room, which, for us, was an excellent choice, it was a lovely big room with a large comfortable bed and sea views. The beverage tray... More
