“terrible hotel”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

this hotel is aweful its smells throughout . the rooms were dirty and unsanitary there was human excrement all over the back of the bathroom door . the shower didnt work and the bedsheets were very grubby . the spare quilt was covered in stains . and the quilt that was on the bed was paper thin . the garden was filled with rubbish and rubble . the lounge was filled with washing on aireres and the family lounge was not inviting . the parkin was terrible once you were in if your lucky enough to get in you cudnt get out cus of the street parking. i wudnt advise anyone to book unless you were thinking very cheap . not a place i would revisit.

This was a very last minute trip and we simply went for the best 'value' guest house we could find in Paignton, knowing the season was over and the town would be relatively quiet.

We weren't disappointed - excellent location, a warm welcome from the proud and helpful owner, very clean, well laid out, bedroom fairly basic but everything in its place (although bed was surprisingly - er - 'firm' ?), evidently busy, and we can certainly vouch for the quality of the breakfast !

Room Tip: The street front-facing double room can be noisy in the morning

Me,my husband and our 23 month old daughter stayed her from 19th-21st August in Room 2,and came away wishing we'd stayed longer! It was fantastic. The host Leon was incredibly friendly and had a great sense of humour. They went out of their way to keep our little one amused. Incredible value for money. Delicious breakfast. An exceptional B&B. Definitely going back! :)
