Now it is not often that I go to the same place twice, but I said I'd be back.

From the moment I arrived I felt relaxed, I was welcomed by Jill and Tony as if I was a returning family member. A lovely cup of tea and a piece of cake after a long train journey was just what I needed.

Tony showed me to my room, a lovely ground floor room (great after a couple of drinks in the evening, no stairs to climb ha-ha), the bed was so comfortable and warm.

I wanted to explore the local area a bit more than i did on my last visit so asked Tony & Jill for some advice, to which I walked away with a full years itinerary as they have such a wealth of knowledge about the local area, attractions and events.

Breakfast was as I remembered it...Excellent, nice and peaceful with brilliant food.

Thank You Tony and Jill, what a couple of people and a great guest house to match your personalities

I've stayed at St Edmunds guest house quite a few times and decided it was about time i wrote a review. i've always been warmly welcomed and after a long journey, the cup of tea and cupcake offered are very well received. Jill & Tony provide a wonderful service and nothing is too much trouble, you only need ask! I've found the rooms to be very clean, well kept, with plenty of clean towels and tea & coffee making facilities. The beds are very comfortable and provide a good nights sleep. The guesthouse itself is just a few minutes walk to the local town centre or Paignton beach front and pier with a variety of pubs and restaurants of which Jill & Tony will be only too happy to inform you. All in all a wonderful place to stay and great value for money - i often recommend family and friends and will be returning as soon as i can!

The owners were very friendly and gave me coffee and cake before showing me to my room.
I was upgraded to a double room as the single room was already take. The room was comfortable with a definite womans touch to the furnishing, it was a bit cramped for space though with the mini kettle being mounted on the wall beside the bed. The en-suite was on the cramped side too but clean and the shower worked fine.
The only real down side to the room was the flimsy curtains, the street light across the road shone in all night.

We stayed at St Edmunds guest house for 1 night at the end of august. We were welcomed with a welcome coffee and cake which after a long journey was very nice. The room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast the following morning was very nice and plentiful.
We will definately book again when we return to Devon and will highly recommend to family and friends
