Our room was at the back it was quiet and nicely decorated. The bathroom was a true ensuite room with a window which can be lacking in some places. This is a lovely old school B&B, with a relaxed atmosphere. The cooked breakfast was swift to arrive and piping hot. Good location, short walk from the train station and the... More

lovely short break in a wonderful location overlooking the sea. Great friendly hosts, and fab hearty breakfast that set you up for the day. With added convenience of the free car park and walking distance of local bars, pubs and shops. We'll definitely be back.

We had a room overlooking the beach it was really nice. The room itself was a little dated, but clean and comfortable. Very homely! If you are looking for a nice, homely, down to earth place to stop over pick this place!

I think that the best thing to say about this hotel is that the bed and pillows are the most comfortable I have ever experienced, so thinks my family too. Very close to the beach excellent service we loved it. We will be staying there again this month.

Cannot fault this bed and breakfast, rooms are clean to a high standard. The beds are very comfortable. Very friendly atmosphere and with a great welcome. Had a very enjoyable stay. We parked the car and travelled on public transport that was easy to negotiate and economical. Thank you

We have stayed a couple of times a year at the Wulfruna for 8 years & it just gets better. The weather was stormy this visit but the welcome was warm, the rooms clean & the breakfast right on the mark. Once you stay at the Wulfruna the chances are you will return as if you are going to Paignton... More

Shabby decor, grubby towels, greasy, high fat, cholesterol ridden breakfasts. An owner whose rudeness and abrasive attitude fitted well in this low end establishment. a stereotypical bed & breakfast caught up in a time warp from the early 20th century. Places like this give a poor image of b&bs at a time when they need it most.

This is a budget option with excellent location, free parking and a wonderful cooked breakfast. The rooms are clean and small but adequate. The main draw is the friendly hosts. Wendy was welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. She recommended a great restaurant and activities. Other people we spoke to also enjoyed their experience. A really nice surprise.
