“chilly nights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Not very superior room, 2 singles 'hitched' together to make big double..but no bedding to cover it. 2 single very thin duvets were all we had..room was big. but, appliances, mirrors and plugs are not within reach of each other, mirror nowhere near a plug to enable to use hairdryer.Same with kettle. bathroom was very small..but clean and had everything. darker curtains would've been nice, to prevent an early wake up. breakfast was nice to be fair..just when we asked for mushrooms..more than 1 wouldve been nice. but the toast was forever coming as was the tea/coffee. smelt of smoke everywhere even our clothes in our case did when we returned home. yet it was non smoking house..

Room Tip: bring pyjamas, cos no bedding.

garfieldlodge, Owner at Garfield Lodge, responded to this review, June 18, 2012
It's usual around the world, even in big hotels, to use two joined beds with two duvets. In the booking system you had used, we provide photos of the rooms and you can see also the two beds and two duvets. We can't understand that you booked in, if this is a problem for you.
Our house is central heated, so turning on the radiator is the first help. Otherwise we offer additional blankets or heaters, but this is normaly only necessary during the winter for the frozen ones.
But we can only help, if we know about a problem!

Right at the arrival we were welcomed by Inge and Michael who turned our weekend break into a great holiday experience! We were staying in spotless Room Purple. A really nice furnished room with all extras: coffee and tea facilities, toiletries, WiFi and even a iPod Dockingstation. The breakfast was excellent. On the buffet you can choose your yogurts, fruit, teas, jams or cereals and Michael brings you a big plate with the rest. The accommodation is perfectly situated, close to the pier and the town center - as well as to the train station.
We had a really great stay and are looking forward to stay at Garfield Lodge again!

We have just returned from a 2 day break. On arrival we were met by Inge and Michael who are the owners and were very pleasant and welcoming upon our arrival. The room was very big and had all the little extras you would expect in the bathroom, including a gents shoe shine.
Tea/coffee/milk/biscuits/sweets and bottle water was replaced daily. The breakfast was excellent, toast/ fresh fruit/ yogurt/ jams/cereals and a very good cooked breakfast nothing was too much trouble,we were even offered extra if we wanted it.This property is situated in an ideal location not far from the beach and the town centre.We will definitely return.

We have just returned from a short break at Garfield Lodge Guest House, Garfield Road, Paignton which is run by a lovely lady called June. Situated literally 50 yards from the sea front, it is perfectly situated with easy access to the beach, pier and both the town centre. The room we had was lovely and had an en-suite bathroom, tv, a double and single bed, tea-making facilities (which is welcome after a stroll on the front), and was spotlessly clean. We only stayed for 4 nights but was made to feel very welcome by June and Pete, nothing was too much trouble.

The breakfasts really are something else. There was a nice selection of cereals and fruit, then the breakfast cooked by June, wow. Sausage, bacon, beans, mushrooms, egg, hash browns, tomato, saute potatoes (if you ask for them) and loads of toast and tea and coffee!! You won't want to eat again until the evening!

There are literally hundreds of guest houses in Paignton and it can be hard to choose a good one. This has to be one of the best, you won't find one better I think.
