We wanted to experience the Round Robin excursion from Paignton to Dartmouth and, on the strength of previous reviews, booked the Summerhill Hotel. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Our room was extremely comfortable and overlooked Goodrington Park and sands. We did pay extra for this room but it was... More

This is, without any doubt, one of the best private hotels at which I have stayed. The owner/drivers are just so attentive and the whole place is immaculately clean, tidy and very well appointed. We had a room at the top of the hotel (30) which got a bit hot at night - but where I wonder didn't that week?... More

My wife and I recently stayed for a couple of nights. Our room was clean and pleasant and the bathroom small but adequate. A hearty breakfast was provided and we ate at the hotel in the evening. There was a good choice on the menu, the items were reasonably priced and the meals we had were excellent and substantial. The... More

We have now been to this hotel 4 times and every time have received excellent service. Nice clean rooms and good food. If you stay for an evening meal leave some room for the treacle tart and cream!! Would recommend this hotel every time.

We made a (very) last minute booking, attracted by the excellent reviews and we weren't disappointed. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and biscuits before being shown to our twin ensuite room which was comfortable and spotless. We decided to stay for dinner and glad we did it. There was lots of choice and each dish was delicious... More

Love this hotel overlooking Paignton. Large Victorian House well set out with private spacious rooms. Family run very friendly and comfortable. Nothing too much trouble. Fantastic food with excellent varied menu. This was our third visit to this hotel and would not consider even looking elsewhere. One of our party confined to wheelchair but disabled rooms gave her plenty off... More
