“Excellent stay”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This was our second stay at the Ratcliffe Guest House and made for a thoroughly relaxing break. The room was light and airy, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious and plentiful, just right before a day exploring Paignton and the surrounding coastline. Kevin and Anna are extremely welcoming and made up for one night disturbed by noisy guests in the room above (gone the next day). We're looking forward to returning in the near future.

This is our second visit to the Ratcliffe Guest House in Paignton. The rooms are very clean, freshly decorated and well equipped. The breakfast choices are wide ranging and everything that comes out of the kitchen is tasty and of a very high quality. Kev and Anna made us feel very welcome and we were sad to have to leave at the end of our stay. Thank You.

Room Tip: Room 2 is fantastic

What a wonderful place to stay, this was our 3rd visit to the Ratcliffe and took our Grandson Harry with us this time. Kev and Anna are the perfect hosts nothing is ever to much for them, and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Rooms are nice and airy and spotless,and the breakfasts are brilliant. The location couldn't be better, and we will be returning in the very near future.

Room Tip: The location is excellent

Very nice family run hotel. Lovely and clean, excellent breakfast. Conveniently located in the centre of the town. Parking in multistorey carpark opposite hotel, although there is a loading/unloading bay outside the hotel. There is a stairlift to the first floor which was an added bonus for my elderly father. Would certainly stay again if in the area.
