we stayed here for three nights july/august and the hosts were some of the nicest and friendly owners i have met. on arrival we were given tea and biscuits which was very welcome after our journey. i requested a ground floor for my parents which we got and we had a lovely four poster room. the hotel was very clean excellent choice for breakfast. nice touches of showergel/shampoo botlles in room. the hotel is in a nice quite road but only a short walk to the beach. i would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 3 nights the beginning of August. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast would put most 5* hotel's to shame. Great selection including fresh fruits like strawberries and blueberries for your cereal followed by a tasty fry up! Great location to, easy walking distance to Paignton Zoo and the town also. If using a sat nav use the street name not the postcode otherwise you will end up in a tight dead end road!

We stayed here in Aug 2013. The twin room (with very comfortable beds) was clean and the en suite was large (which makes a pleasant change). Room 12 was situated on the ground floor with easy access from the rear car park so if you have elderly relatives / disabilities you will find it ideally situated. Parking was a little awkward (hotel car park crowded) on fireworks night but this wasn't really a problem. All toiletries were provided and the refreshments were restocked daily. Breakfasts were really lovely with a very large choice of food including fresh fruit and home made preserves. The full English was cooked to perfection with high quality produce. A residents lounge was a nice surprise and the hosts couldn't do enough for you. This was one of the best B and B s we have stayed at.

Myself and my wife stayed the night at this fanatastic place and we were given a very warm welcome by Dawn and steve who made our stay feel extra special.
We stayed in a very clean room with a four poster bed which was so comfortable that even with the hot weather outside it gave us a cool and relaxing nights sleep. The room had complimentary bottled water,shower gel,soap,moisturiser,chocs and tea and coffee making faciities which added to the whole experience.
Not only this but we woke to a lovely cooked breakfast with steves home made jam which was gorgeous as well as fresh fruits and cereals and yogurts which we loved and on top of this the accommodation was set in a quiet area within walking distance of the Goodrington beach and paignton and only 10 min drive from Torquay.
For the money we spent we couldnt fault our accomodation at all , walking in to the accomodation for the first time after our long drive was like a breathe of fresh air . The decor is bright and breezey but still feeling very homely and you can tell that our hosts had put alot of effort into making us feel welcome. We hope to make a return trip next year weather permitting.
Dear Dawn and Steve, thanks for finishing off our holiday in style and for making us feel at home.
Kind regards Mark and Lucy , Gloucester
