After several years staying in Paignton enjoying the beach we stayed at TLH and my two children loved it. Such a lot to do pool, tennis, entertainment, brilliant place. A lot more expensive than the guest house we always used but then we were paying for all those facilities on site.

Hi Teabag, I live in a little village between Torquay and Paignton so am fairly impartial. If you are a young couple, it may be better for you to stay in Torquay as there's plenty to do and see and has that "Riviera" feel along the seafront. If you have a young family, however, I'd go for Paignton as it has more of a traditional family seaside atmosphere. Street View does not give an accurate feel as it is quite clean and has lovely open spaces. The beaches are more family friendly in Paignton, has a brilliant play park on the seafront, Cinema, crazy golf and Pier all grouped together.

Paignton and Goodrington Sands without a doubt, Torquay is Fab too though. Recommend Goodrington Sands there is a water slide park on the beach, and the sea is shallow ideal for paddling. The steam train passes over the beach regularly which gives it a really special atmosphere with the pretty little beach huts lining the promenade. Museums and things are at Torquay plus wheel London eye type thing and pretty harbour lit up at night :-)
