“The Quality Big Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2010

After a good, peaceful night's sleep in a property that is easily accessible to railway, restaurants, inns and seafront, you need to be suitably stoked up for the day - and you certainly are here. Choice, quality and freshness are priorities for the hosts, along with local sourcing. And it is not in vain - you are set up for a full day, ready for the return to base, and more sustenance and rest.

Would highly recommend to Family & Friends. The B&B is very clean and finished to a high standard with a high level of service and facilities. It has to be one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at.

In fact it was that good I've taken the time to actually post a review. The hosts Dianne & Paul have put a lot of work into making our stay stand out from other run of the mill B&Bs. Little touches show thought has gone into making the whole experience of staying there one of being welcomed and pampered. The location is great; left the car parked at the B&B and used local transport, only a short walk away from all that Paignton has to offer.

Excellent Breakfast cooked with care using quality ingredients sourced from local Farm. Hosts are very welcoming; eager to help but will also give you the space to do your own thing. Great room nicely styled with a large comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Free Wi Fi and flat screen TV with a good choice of channels. Multiplex Cinema just down the road so all your multimedia needs catered for as well! Overall a great B&B and as I've said, highly recommend

This was one of the best B&B's we've stayed at. The rooms were very cozy and nicely presented. The owners, Dianne and Paul were very accommodating, especially with refreshments - in fact Dianne bakes her own cakes and kindly places them in the dining room for the guests to sample in the afternoon. Now the breakfast is another story! We ate the full english every day as it kept us going until at least 6pm. As well as that, the breakfast itself is divine - and if you are vegetarian that isn't a problem either as you can have cauldron sausages and quorn bacon instead. Seriously there is nothing they haven't thought of! The reason why I gave Merritt House 4 stars and not 5 is because of the parking situation around the B&B. Merritt do have 4 parking spaces which is more than the other guest houses in the same area, however if these are full, you must prepare to be patient and wait for someone to move their car out of the street in front. The other alternative is to park further down the road, but it's pay and display. We visited at one of the busiest times and were lucky to get a parking space each time so don't let this put you off.
