Well....We stayed here for one night in late July thankfully for one night only. The room cost £39 and frankly wasn't worth anything more so DO NOT pay anymore. On first entering the property, shabbyness is really the key word here, 'shabby' as in uncared for, tired looking and dull. The room itself straight away gave me the impression that the owners of this B&B are not interested in anything else other than taking cash from people whilst giving them what can only be described as a roof over their heads with washing facilities. The room itself was in need of redecoration, whoever made the decision to use sky blue with white has no eye for colour co-ordination or what looks pleasing to the eye. Bedding didn't match, TV difficult to get a picture on, could only get one channel! I really want to get an honest opinion across here but from a customer's point of view, the only plus thing I guess was it's location to the seafront if that's what you want. We had a room facing the street and it was quite difficult to sleep when you have a few cretins outside at 3am yelling away fighting but of course, this is nothing to do with the B&B but a mere observation of the garbage that walks the streets in the early hours around Paignton. Regardihng the other comments about the rooms being small and hearing other people through the walls. Yes it has been designed inside like some modern housing complex where the developers want to cram as much money making potential into one space without much thought for the occupants but I thought the space was adequate to be honest. Just make sure you don't have a room next to Tarzan and Jane otherwise you might just get a radio porn show in words and not pictures! As for breakfast, we are both vegetarians and you aren't catered for here. We just got brekkie without the meat at the end of the day. My beans looked fresh out of the mortuary, the egg did come out with a yolk, the mushrooms were tinned and vile (no thought yet again to just put themselves out a little to make fresh mushrooms...it doesn't take much does it!) so all in all, I sat there thinking 'we can always get breakfast in asda's'! I am never that bothered how the owners come across in establishments like this as you never see them but the lady who seemed to be in charge clearly needs to go to etiquette school as again, no idea on how to welcome guests. ......so to sum it all up, yes you can tell I wasn't impressed can't you. I can't for the life of me understand why people who run this kind of business where they deal with the public seem to have little time for anyone who walks through the door whilst not giving a damn what impression they leave on people that stay in their B&B. Perhaps they are clueless so I am being totally unjust who knows but there must be much better places to stay in Paignton than this place so only stay here if you haven't anywhere else to stay. ...oh one more plus point. The room was tidy when we arrived so no complaints there.
