Immediately from when we arrived we received a warm and lovely greeting and shown to our room immediately. All the staff were welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was exceptional with a wide range of choice including traditional breakfast to kippers or smoked haddock. Dinner service was right up there being served as if we were in a 5 start restaurant. Lastly... More

Twin room with shower which was quite adequate for our 4 night stay. Good quality towels and a decent size for my generous proportions. The beds were very comfortable and my friend and I slept really well.Excellent breakfast menu. I did not have the appetite for the full English but the one I saw looked delicious. We were on motorcycles... More

Plenty of plus points- friendly and helpful owners and staff, very traditional and homely environment but without being as rigid as a small B&B. No silly eco notices etc. Generous portions and quality ingredients for breakfast, comfy bed with good mattress and pillows,reasonable shower, good-sized TV, very quiet location, reasonably well placed for the beach. Niggly minor points, some of... More

They say you should never go back - In the case of Summerhill they were wrong. From the warm welcome to the reluctant goodbye (mine) everything was just great. The rooms were immaculate and had everything you needed. The free wi-fi was a bonus.The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. A tip for anyone booking - add dinner to... More

So we were heading out for a trip around the south west, just Da Boss and I! She was organising the night stops. Paignton was the right distance and time for day 1, and the Summerhill Hotel had a double room vacant. Postcode sat nav was slightly out, but we found it after a few minutes. The welcome was lovely,... More

What an absolute gem of a find. Having stayed in a lot of the hotels in and around Paignton whilst house hunting, we came across this hotel. Trust the reviews and don't make the mistake of booking anywhere else. From the minute you arrive and are shown to the lounge area with a warm welcome, to the presentation of your... More

We stayed for 2 nights while traveling around Devon. The staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending areas to visit. The rooms were large and the common areas very comfortable. We were a few minutes walk to the water and the center of town was just a bit further. The breakfast options were plentiful and delicious.

We booked this hotel from reading reviews and, wow, we were not disappointed! From a warm welcome to comfortable relaxing surroundings and excellent service where nothing was too much trouble. We had a room with a balcony with views over the sea - lovely! It was spotlessly clean too. Breakfast was fantastic with excellent friendly service. Our only preference would... More

We booked a two-night stay at the Summerhill after reading the overwhelmingly excellent reviews the hotel had received. From the moment we arrived and sat enjoying a cup of tea and biscuits whilst completing the registration forms, we felt sure that it would live up to the comments. The family-run hotel has plenty of parking and is quietly situated and... More
