The Ambassador
Ranked #20 of 96 Paignton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Arrived on Thursday in pouring rain, Yvonne offered us the option of a coffee delivered to our room as we changed out of our wet weather gear. This was to be typical of our short stay. Excellent service coupled with first class knowledge and advice re local facilities.

Also, the breakfasts were superb - great choice plus excellent cooking and huge portions meant you were well set up for the day.

We had some very cold and wet weather during our stay but there was always a warm welcome back at the ambassadors - we will return next time in Paignton.

A clean, friendly and well run B&B. Splendid breakfasts, Marks poached eggs should win an award. And a friendly very well mannered dog. We have recommended the place to friends, which we normally don't.
Mark & Yvonne are cheerful and helpful and make the stay that more pleasant.

The Ambassador is close to all local points of interest. It is clean and up to date with a good standard of fixtures and fittings. Wifi actually works in rooms not just limited to the foyer.
The owners will point you in right direction for local things to do etc. Mark & Yvonne are a down to earth couple who want to make your stay comfortable and pleasant without being pushy. The food @ breakfast was stunning for a "standard" b & b. Without doubt it blew into the weeds breakfasts I have had to pay for through the nose for @ chain establishments. Seriously, the quality / quantity of the breakfast was above what you think you're going get.
Great place. Definitely will be staying when next there on business. Well done the pair of you.
