“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Only stayed the one night, but this place is situated close to sea front and town which was ideal. We had a very friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble, we would come back again as great value and location. Only very minor comment is the decor is very dated, but if you look past this, it's well worth a try

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

Excellent basic hotel, made to feel welcome from the second we walked through the door. Supurb cooked breakfast, excellent service from everyone. If you want a clean basic hotel to sleep in, have breakfast in and then go out for the day, in the Paignton area this one will take some beating. Even the beds are good and the room we had (10) is slightly bigger than many others I have stayed in.

I stayed the weekend as i was running the torbay half marathon that weekend and i couldn't have picked a better hotel. Cathy and Mel was so friendly and made me feel at home straight away. The breakfast was tops, poached eggs were just right, plenty of toast and the hotel itself was warm and very comfortable. Would definately stay there again.

A perfect family friendly B & B / hotel, for those on a budget. With bonus interest (for our 4 half year old ) of railwayana & decorative tin plate toys to look at and a large sundrenched garden for him to play in briefly with daddy while I got organised after the hearty & generous breakfast served by Cathy's husband, Mel.
If asked, Mel will chat about layouts & locos etc & his enthusiasm is infectious.
For the price you pay, you couldn't ask for anything better and the breakfast just tops it off. Cathy volunteered to let us use the dining room to eat the superb chinese food we popped out to get - the excellent takeway being just a restful 2 mins walk away at the harbour.
Our four day break certainly made a great impression and a lasting one, as our little boy
asked today (a whole month later) if it was Cathy from our holiday on the phone. Alas it was not, but is does put us in mind to phone them again asap, for another superb break.

Room Tip: Clean,practical,no frills decor but great value.
