“Personal service and better than any hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We always love going to Brixham for a weekend break out of season, this time we were the only ones staying at the end of September. John and Tess were lovely as they always are, John offered to drop us down to the town instead of us getting a taxi which was very kind of him. He also booked us into Bistro 46 a gorgeous little restaurant that we go to every time we stay. We love this B&B as we both suffer from bad backs and we are both tall and the beds here are so comfortable and have no foot boards which enables us to stretch out comfortably!

We stayed in the Premier Suite for the first time which we loved, we have also previously stayed in the Junior Suite downstairs and also in the double ensuite, all of which are lovely. The shower rooms are all showers and ensuite but tiny but what they lack in space they make up for in cleanliness!

The Premier Suite was lovely with it's own lounge area coming off the bedroom, was just what we wanted. John told us over the Winter they are making the shower room bigger so can't wait to see it next year.

We slept well, our room was upstairs at the rear of the house which was very quiet, we found the Junior Suite at the front of the house a bit too noisy as we aren't used to road traffic where we live and always sleep with the window open but the bonus of this is that the B&B is so near to the town centre within walking distance so you can't have it all.

Brace yourself for the breakfasts, top notch and plenty of choice to suit anyones taste! All in all we had the perfect, restful and relaxed weekend, it was just what we needed and we will be back next year! I highly recommend and we are very picky! 10/10 to John and Tess for making us feel comfortable and well looked after, thank you!

Fantastic place, fresh coffee and cake on arrival, lovely helpful people, both John and Tess are walking Trip Advisors they will suggest places to visit within a very large radius of Brixham and where to eat locally. We had a very busy weekend visiting various places which we really enjoyed 5* choice and quality breakfast.

Well done Tess & John, we'll be back.

Room Tip: Recommend the Premier Suite

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners John and Tess. They even offered to dry off our clothes should we come back wet at the end of the day. Our bedroom was stylish and well equipped.The bed was really comfortable with white cotton sheets. Their award-winning breakfast was delicious -so much to chooses from -and afterwards you felt ready for a walk! We would recommend Brookside to anyone visiting Brixham.

We stayed for 5 nights in August with Tess and John who were very welcoming friendly hosts.
Our stay began with a welcome cup of tea and cake in the garden, a lovely touch. Our room was beautiful, so much attention and care had gone into the decor it was spotlessly clean and the rest of the house was to the same standard. It is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in.
Brookside is in a good position on the edge of town with only a 10 minute walk to the harbour and the bus stop is very close. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't move it again until we left. Breakfast was great with so much choice, think you could stay for 2 weeks and not have the same thing twice and Tess and John use local produce whenever possible.
If we visit Brixham again we would not look for anywhere else, so lucky to have found Brookside.

We recently spent one night in Brixham whilst on holiday in south Devon and we certainly struck gold when we booked in for the night at the Brookside Guest House with Tess and John who are genuine, friendly and always on hand to help.

We stayed in the Premier suite and it was definitely worth it. The room was spacious and the separate living area was nice to relax in and watch tv or read a book. The bed was extremely comfortable and also has a separate DVD player/tv next to the bed for late night films etc.

They say you can tell how good your stay is by the standard of the breakfast and believe me you will not be disappointed! The range of options for what you can order for breakfast is amazing and as you ordered this the night before it was almost ready for you when you go down for breakfast. I am not sure how to exactly describe the breakfast but perfect would be one of the words I could use.

Overall John and Tess are the perfect hosts and take lots of pride in the service they provide to their guests and when we next stay in Brixham again we wont need to look anywhere else but the Brookside!!!

Room Tip: I would definitley recommend booking the Premier suite as it is definitely worth the extra cost.

We stayed for a week in August in the Premier suite, it was lovely.
The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable with crisp white sheets.
There were lovely fluffy white towels and bath robes in the room.
Breakfast was amazing, I have never had so much choice, lots of fresh fruit to choose from or cereal and yogurt, then a vast array of cooked food, I don't think I had the same thing twice!
The hosts were really friendly and made us, and the other guests feel very welcome.

Great welcome from a very friendly genuine couple. The room ( junior suite ) was clean, very modern and well equiped with everything that we needed plus much more.
Breakfast was outstanding, catered for every taste and the service was great.
Would recommend to anyone who is travelling to Brixham it is truly a 5 star experience.
