Visiting family in Torbay and decided to go B&B this time - so glad we did. Merritt House was a great base for 4 days, set back just 1 road away from the seafront and pretty Paignton Harbour, so great for a stroll after breakfast. You need to walk it off, it's amazing! Freshly cooked with a choice of usual either as a 'full' or as a 'half', I struggled to finish the half! self-service juices, cereals, fresh fruit and as much Tea as you can drink. There are about 6 rooms I think and the atmosphere in the breakfast room in the mornings was very relaxed and friendly, everyone talking about their plans for the day etc. Dianne welcomed us at 3pm when we arrived, with a fresh cuppa and choice of gorgeous home made cake, a lovely touch, thank you, after such a long journey down from Southampton. We could help ourselves at any time to the milk in the fridge in the dining room if we wanted fresh. The room had a comfey king size bed, full ensuite shower room with a nice selection of toiletries etc. nice touch were the robes hanging behind the door, we had a lovely view over the Paignton Cricket pitch next door which enjoyed late afternoon sunshine. We found a good selection of Teas, Coffees, chocolate and a tin of biscuits, fruit on arrival. There were a few interesting books and maps in our room which were handy. The B&B was a couple of minutes away from the town centre for a walk or a drink, found a lovely fish & chip restaurant! We felt refreshed and well looked after when we left and would certainly stay on our next trip down.
