As others have said, the apartments are presented to a very high standard, with wonderful, spacious and comfortable facilities. Our only minor gripe was the pans beginning to lose their non-stick coating.
The town centre of Paignton looked a little tired, certainly the shopping centre does it no favours at all. Having said that, Goodrington offered a nice quiet spot for a traditional family holiday with a park, pedalos, crazy golf, windy sandy beach, coastal paths, penny amusements, etc. and was very pleasant. It was great to have the park and beach so close by and the outdoor pool, although quite small was a real added bonus and quiet enough to enjoy whenever we chose to do so.
The best of our trips had to be to Brixham, which looked beautiful in the flag-cracking sunshine (can't believe this was the UK in early June) and to Paignton Zoo where we spent a very full and enjoyable day.
All in all, an extremely comfortable and relaxing base for a self catering holiday, my only problem now is to find somewhere as good for our next holiday!
