“"Great hospitality"”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

Excellent accomadation and hosts very friendly and approachable. They were only too willing to advise what to see in the area and chatted about local issues which added to our interest in Paignton.
Food provided was very varied, very well cooked and very filling.
Room was comfortable and cleanliness of a very high standard and the hotel was well worth the 4 stars that it has obtained.
We will definatly be returning at a later date

My wife and I have today returned from a 2 night honeymoon break and couldnt of wished to pick a better place to spend it. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Cynthia & Les are extremely friendly people and couldnt of made us feel more welcome. The hotel was extremely clean and the food was outstanding. There is an information booklet in the room which has every detail about the hotel and how it is run. it is extremely useful and if read explains all about breakfast & dogs which other reviews seem to have missed.
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anybody and hope to return there ourselves later this year.
Thank You again to Cynthia & Les

The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Our family gathered at Rowcroft to attend our daughter's wedding and Cynthia & Les could not have been more welcoming and helpful, going out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. The hotel is opposite a park and only a few minutes walk through the park to the beach with no busy roads to cross making it a good choice for families.

We had a lovely stay with our two children in a family room which was spacious and clean with friendly helpful staff. We had a sea view so the children loved seeing the sea which was on a level walk to the beach approx 200 yards along the park path. The children were given bread by the owners to feed the ducks in the park - which is lovely and flat so football was easy to play and I could watch from the picnic bench. At breakfast you had a choice of Fruit Juices, cereal, yogerts, fresh fruit and a cooked Full English, Scrambled Egg, Sausage and Beans - my little boy's favorite! or a combination of. with as much tea, coffee and toast you could eat.

An absolute pleasurable stay and would book again for next year, will recommend to all my family and friends.

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights in September. The hotel was clean. Unfortunately our room was in the basement so there wasn't much natural light in the room.
The owners daughter could not have made us feel more welcome which is more then what I could say about the owner when we meet her on the morning we were leaving.
A word of advise. Don't what ever you do have a small glass and cereal for your breakfast because you are humilitated in front of the other guests.
I was told that 'you can have either one or the other' and 'this time I'm going to let you off'. I was so embarassed because the other guests had done the same as me and it was said so loudly that everyone was watching.
