“lovely place, perfect service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I booked this place based on the brilliant reviews and wasn't disappointed. We were met on arrival by John who was very helpful, chatty (but not invasive) and friendly making us feel welcome and relaxed from the beginning. The room was immaculate, stylish and finished to a high standard. As other reviews have mentioned - the bathroom is quite tiny, but not a problem (only reason I knocked a star off). We only stayed one night and went into town to eat at the Pepper Shack on the harbour in town (recommended), which is only a 10 minute stroll from the guest house.

Breakfast next morning was amazing, we set a time and ordered the evening before, the choice was excellent, and John was a lovely host. Nothing was too much trouble and I was made to feel relaxed in the morning when we were getting ready for a wedding and would normally have been a little stressed out. Highly recommended for anyone staying in Brixham.

Tea and cake on arrival. Spacious well equipped room. Nothing was too much trouble, plenty of informed advise on places to visit. Breakfast was fantastic, tasty local produce and plenty of variety. Diet starts tomorrow!

After reading the reviews about the Brookside Guesthouse Brixham I thought it can't be that good, well folks take it from me it is. From the time you step inside the front door until the time you depart for home John and Tess are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble and you don't have to ask for a thing, it is all there for you. The room was comfortable and a good nights sleep followed and then there was breakfast,all pre-ordered the night before and it was ready when you wanted it in the morning, freshly cooked along with a great selection of fruit, cereal .etc and tea or coffee by the bucket if you wanted it. Brookside Guesthouse is probably one of the most welcoming and comfortable places I have stayed for a long time, thanks John and Tess we will be back.

Room Tip: Only four bedrooms so book early!

My husband and I stayed at Brookside to enjoy a short stay in Brixham. At the time of staying we were the only guests.
From the moment we arrived we received nothing but a real welcome. We were blown away by our room, the added seating area was a real bonus and used often. The room was immaculate and just perfect. Tea, coffee and toiletries were available.
The breakfast was a real eye opener!! The range of choice and the quality was just wonderful. We took full advantage of the breakfasts beautitully cooked and presented in really comfortable dinning area. John and Jess were efficient, friendly and created a real haven which we will be re-visting.

Room Tip: They are all beautiful

Thanks to everyone else's reviews we chose this guest house for a short mid week break, to relax and unwind.
Like so many of the other visitors, we could not of been happier, from the outside the house looks very well kept but nothing fancy, inside is a totally different matter with fabulous clean decor, spacious rooms, with separate lounge area, DVD, tv, fluffy towels, toiletries and the most comfortable bed ... So much so were ordering the same mattress.
The breakfast was gorgeous, with lovely fresh fruit and several options from a big breakfast to pancakes.
The owners John and Tess could not of made us so welcome, lovely couple and even helped us to decide where to go on our trips. Very friendly .
The garden is beautifully laid out even for this time of year, I'm guessing its stunning in the summer. There is a summerhouse with its own tea and coffee making facilities that could mean many hours lost in the garden.
My partner proposed to me on our trip and John and Tess brought us some lovely flowers and a card, to congratulate us.... Such a personal touch the same as our stay in everyday.
Fantastic guest house, would recommend to friends and relatives, young and old.

Room Tip: All are beautifully decorated

Thanks to other reviewers, we chose this guest house for our short stay in Brixham and were not dissapointed. Our room (the downstairs suite) was spotlessly clean with better facilities than many top grade hotels. We had two tv's, excellent toiletries, free wifi and beautifully comfortable bedding. Service was friendly and excellent with tea and home made cake on arrival and a lovely freshly cooked breakfast. Much much better than any anonymous hotel and highly recommended.

My partner and I went to Brixham for a couple of days and came across this B&B. We could not have been happier!
We arrived on Friday afternoon and were upgraded to a bigger room, followed closely by given tea and home baked cakes. The room was lovely, the bed was so comfy, and the whole place was absolutely spotless. The only thing I will note is that the bathroom is pretty small, but not unworkable.
The owners, John and Tess, made a wonderful breakfast and were very quick to ensure that we had everything we needed. I wish we'd stayed long enough to try everything on their menu.

Overall a great place to stay, we will definitely be going back :)
